Car Accidents

When you’ve been injured in a wreck, you deserve highly skilled legal representation.

Car accidents tend to happen when you least expect them. A wreck on a highway can happen without warning on Interstate 85 or Interstate 77 and leave you or a loved one facing severe injuries. You may be crossing Trade Street at College Street in Charlotte when you’re hit by another vehicle. In the time it takes to blink your eyes, your life may be turned upside-down. Car accidents often result in debilitating injuries, skyrocketing medical bills and an inability to return to work. They often lead to a wrongful death lawsuit. The bills related to the accident can add up quickly and leave you worried about your financial stability.

How do car accidents happen in North Carolina?

Many accidents in Charlotte, including motorcycle accidents and truck accidents, are caused by reckless or careless drivers. North Carolina carries a reputation as one of the most dangerous states for drivers. In 2012 alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 1,292 traffic accident fatalities on state roads and highways. That means on average three people are killed in accidents every day, with hundreds of thousands of people sustaining serious accident-related injuries each year.

Car accidents in North Carolina can happen for a variety of different reasons. Perhaps you were rear-ended by a driver paying more attention to her phone than the stop light at the corner of Fairview Road and Sharon Road. A driver might have been drunk when he veered across the center median and struck your car head-on. Some of the most common causes of car accidents in Charlotte and throughout the state include:

  • Drunk driving – Despite widespread awareness of the danger of drunk driving, people get behind the wheel every day after having too much to drink and endanger others.
  • Distracted driving, including texting and cell phone accidents – North Carolina bans drivers from texting while behind the wheel, but texting and talking on phones while driving continues to be a significant factor in distracted driving accidents.
  • Reckless driving – A driver who is running late or simply experiencing “road rage” might make reckless decisions and cause a serious accident.
  • Speeding – Many drivers ignore posted speed limits or go too fast for the conditions. The result? They cause terrible accidents leading to serious injuries or fatalities.
  • Fatigued driving – Studies show that most drivers have admitted to being behind the wheel while tired. It’s critical for drivers to understand that such behavior can have dire consequences.
