No one expects their loved one will be seriously injured or killed in a car accident. Unfortunately, hundreds of North Carolina families face this reality every year. Sometimes, these accidents are caused by another driver’s negligence. Another driver may be distracted, drunk, or just plain negligent.
A family who has been affected by a serious accident may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident and help determine who is at fault. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages, and other damages. It’s important to remember that victims of these types of terrible accidents are not alone.
