Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on North Carolina roads. Because of this, they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. In just one recent year’s time in the entire U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents due to negligent reasons. Truck drivers are supposed to be some of the safest drivers on our roads but this does not always occur. Because truck drivers spend a long period of time on our roads, they sometimes drive distracted or even fall asleep at the wheel. If you have been hurt in a truck accident, you should speak with a dedicated attorney that you can trust in your time of need.
