Drunk driving still problematic in North Carolina


When North Carolinians first learn to drive, they are taught to be fully aware of their surroundings and to drive defensively. Though this practice may decrease one's odds of an injurious crash, the negligent acts of others can still injure those who employ defensive tactics. This is especially true when other drivers choose to drink and drive. These reckless motorists put other drivers, their passengers and pedestrians at significant risk of harm and death.

Our firm fights for those hurt by drunk driving


We have all heard the statistics and the warnings telling us that drinking and driving is extremely dangerous not only to the intoxicated driver, but also to others on the road. Yet, despite this knowledge, many North Carolinians still choose to drink and drive. Though some of these individuals are able to make it home safe, a great number of them cause serious accidents, leaving a wreck of destruction, injuries, and death.

How does alcohol affect driving ability?


It is no secret that far too many motorists climb behind the wheel of their vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages. Sometimes these individuals are not impaired at all or minimally so, and get to their destination without incident. Other times, though, these drivers are under the influence and their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle is seriously compromised. In these instances, a severe drunk driving accident could occur, leaving destruction and as well as physical, emotional and financial pain and suffering.

Drowsy driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving


A recent report by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that on many highways across the United States, including those in North Carolina, an increasing number of car accidents have been cause by sleepy drivers. The NHTSA data was compiled from reports submitted by local police departments, but drivers impaired by drowsiness or sleepiness are difficult for police to detect after an accident.

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.

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.

North Carolina drunk drivers can face tough consequences


Drunk driving is without argument an irresponsible and dangerous practice of motorists in North Carolina and beyond its state lines. National statistics show that someone dies nearly every 45 seconds due to the consequences of a drunk driving accident. Stringent laws are an important part of protecting the public and ensuring that pedestrians and other vehicles and passengers are safe while travelling on North Carolina highways and byways.
