There is no doubt that motor vehicles are not only a part of the history of the United States, but they also play an intricate part in the daily lives of all Americans, including the citizens of North Carolina. Motor vehicles provide many comforts, but also cause a lot of heartache. Statistics indicate that 6.5 million car accidents occur in one year, resulting in 3 million injured victims and the deaths of many.
Motor vehicle accidents are among the major causes of personal injury claims. There may be many reasons for this, ranging from a lack of realization among drivers of the responsibilities accompanying the operation of a motorized vehicle to a false sense of security resulting from the regular use of a vehicle. Drivers become too comfortable in their abilities and fail to recognize their unsafe practices.
It is important for victims of a car accident to realize that when the accident resulted from the recklessness or negligence of another driver, that there is legal recourse available. Our firm provides advice and assistance to victims of car accidents. Accidents due to DUI drivers, drivers ignoring traffic laws, those driving at a high speed and unlicensed drivers are often cases in which the victims may be eligible to be compensated for their suffering.
At our North Carolina firm, we will answer questions and offer advice and seek to protect your interests. This is particularly true if the case would best be handled by litigation in court because the methods used by insurance companies to evaluate fault may not always make an out-of-court settlement in the client's best interests. We will take the time to explain the many confusing processes involved in civil claims. For more information, please visit our car accidents page.
