Understanding the effect of helmet laws in personal injury claims


Many states in the U.S., including North Carolina, have strict laws against motorcyclists riding without a helmet. Authorities have tried to emphasize how important it is for motorcyclists to wear helmets because the helmet serves as effective protection in the event of a motorcycle accident. A helmet helps to reduce head injuries, leading to fewer fatalities from accidents.

Points to remember about the revocation of a driver's license


Drivers of commercial vehicles in North Carolina should be aware of the rules regarding revocation of a driver's license. The Motor Vehicles Division has the authority to revoke the driver's license of a person if that person has been convicted of a certain listed offense. If a driver has been convicted of manslaughter while operating a motor vehicle, the same offense may lead to the revocation of the driver's license. Apart from that, if the driver is found to be driving under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, the division has the right to revoke that person's the driver's license.

North Carolina drivers often break the "move over" law


Many North Carolina residents may be aware that in 2002 our state passed a law that required vehicles to move over or reduce their speed if there is an emergency vehicle near them. That law was meant to safeguard accident victims, emergency crews and law enforcement officers who might be present at the scene of an accident. Sadly, as recent reports state, many drivers in the state are unaware of this law.

North Carolina truckers can face higher truck accidents penalties


Commercial vehicles, such as trucks and other large commercial vehicles, which carry large loads in North Carolina, are subject to more stringent laws than other personal vehicles. Commercial vehicles, like trucks, offer their services for a price. With that in mind, in the event of an accident, the trucking company may find itself in the position of being indicted.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury cases?


The victim of a car accident often not only suffers serious physical injuries but the person can also face extreme financial challenges because of the car accident. Medical expenses to treat injuries are often very high; those injuries include head injuries as well as internal and external bleeding. In many cases, the victim of a car accident suffers permanent disabilities as well.
