What actions should a victim take after a car accident?


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.

Employers' role in preventing commercial vehicle accidents


A commercial vehicle accident can have a greater number of legal implications than a personal car accident, given that the incident may also directly affect the driver's employer. A report from 2010 showed that motor vehicle accidents were the top cause of work-related fatalities and accounted for almost one-quarter of occupational injuries that were fatal.

What issues can cause a vehicle to be recalled?


There are many factors that can lead to a car accident. In many situations, a driver may do something negligent, such as failing to observe a stop sign or speeding, which can cause a collision. However, despite the fact that many accidents are attributed to those involved, it is important to remember that vehicles themselves can have issues, either in design or in manufacture, which can also cause accidents.
