Investigating North Carolina commercial vehicle accidents

As last week's post reminded our Cary, North Carolina, readers, no one who has been injured in an accident involving a commercial vehicle should assume that the case will go smoothly simply because the driver of the truck or delivery van got a ticket. These sorts of cases can actually be among the trickiest and most frustrating for clients because of the current state of North Carolina's negligence laws.

Do car accident victims investigate the accident themselves?

When a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, one of the first things a Cary, North Carolina, family might want to know is whether the other driver involved got a ticket or is facing some sort of criminal charge. Whether the driver was doing something as common as speeding or was dangerously driving under the influence, a citation or charge against the other driver implies the other driver is financially responsible for the accident.

What will workers' compensation cover after a work injury?

There are risks involved with almost every kind of work. Typically, higher-risk work environments are subject to safety regulations intended to minimize the risk of injury, but accidents still happen. Workers in North Carolina are supposed to be covered by worker's compensation insurance, at no cost to them, if they work for a company with at least three employees.

Criminal charges filed in connection with a recent fatal crash

As an update to a post on this blog, Raleigh, North Carolina, police have now filed formal charges against a young man who was allegedly involved in a fatal car accident a few weeks ago. One man, also young, died at the scene of the accident, while the man who now faces charges was hospitalized. The young man facing the criminal case was, as of the latest reports, in custody, while the case is pending.

Number of motorcycle injuries down; fatalities up

According to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number of people injured in a motorcycle accident during 2015 dropped by a little over 4 percent, down to 88,000 injuries from 92,000 injuries in 2014.

Distracted driving rules proposed

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has consistently warned drivers about the dangers of distracted driving such as talking or texting while operating a motor vehicle. It recently announced part of its proposed solution to the dangers caused by a distracted driver.
