Every year, North Carolina residents often witness their fair share of car accidents on the road. Although police and transportation safety authorities implement measures to help keep motorists and pedestrians safe, these measures may not be enough. A car accident may result in severe injuries and in the subsequent period of time that follows, it may be essential to keep certain facts in mind.
One of the most important things to remember is that leaving the scene of an accident, especially one that may have resulted in death or injury, can cause serious legal consequences. It may, therefore, be considered a wise decision to leave the scene of the accident at the appropriate time, after the police have arrived.
