Hold a negligent driver accountable after a Raleigh car crash

Many Raleigh, North Carolina residents may know that negligent driving is one of the major reasons behind motor vehicle accidents. This negligence not only results in vehicle damage but also injures, and sometimes kills, the occupants of other vehicles involved in an accident. Negligent drivers cause many people to believe that city roads are no longer safe for pedestrians or bicyclists or even other motorists, whether in a car or on a motorcycle.

One form of negligent driving that is currently very common is caused by the use of cell phones while operating a vehicle. Current motor vehicle laws prohibit use of cellphones but still many people choose to ignore these laws. This ignorance results in a lapse in attention, which can have serious consequences both for the texting driver as well as other people on the roads.

The lack of basic driving skills and repeated attempts by a driver to exceed his or her ability to control a vehicle are other reasons for motor vehicle accidents. Reckless driving, which usually means a disregard of North Carolina traffic laws, is another major concern. Speeding, running stop signs, failing to yield and road rage are some additional examples of reckless driving practices that can easily result in accidents.

These are among the various types of accidents to which a Raleigh resident may fall victim. In most cases, victims are innocent but still have to suffer for someone else's ignorance. However, if that victim chooses to hold the negligent driver liable, it may be possible to obtain compensation to address the difficulties that arise after an accident, including medical expenses and lost wages.

Since many car accident victims are not familiar with personal injury laws in North Carolina, they should speak with an attorney. The Law Offices of John M. McCabe has sufficient and vast experience in helping accident victims pursue personal injury claims. When you contact us, you can rest assured that the legal representation you have chosen is among the best in the state of North Carolina.
