A single-vehicle accident on a North Carolina highway on June 5 has left one man dead and two women clinging to life. The car accident happened in the afternoon on a North Carolina county road. Police are continuing an investigation into the cause of the crash.
When an individual is involved in a North Carolina car crash, life takes a series of unexpected turns. The victim and their family are often consumed with attending to the immediate medical needs, which can take days or even weeks. Then the sometimes long process of recovery begins, which requires adjustment on the part of all family members. It can be quite some time before one's thoughts turn to their options for legal recourse against the party responsible for a serious car accident.
When a collision occurs between a motorcycle and an enclosed vehicle, the risk of serious injury or worse to the biker is obvious. The lack of protection a biker has against the force and weight of a larger vehicle often results in tragic consequences. Unfortunately, this theme played out yet again in a recent North Carolina motorcycle accident in Fayetteville.
Anytime a pedestrian or anyone on any type of smaller motorized vehicle is in an accident, the injuries can be far worse than if two regular cars or trucks were involved. A Wilmington man has finally succumbed to his injuries after being involved in a deadly accident. The car accident happened while the man was at Carolina Beach. He was on a motor scooter when he was struck by a car. The man was apparently transported to the hospital after the crash, but passed away two days later.
Tragedy has again struck in North Carolina. Two pedestrians were hit by a car that veered off of the road. One died the following day, and the other sustained injuries. The car accident occurred one recent Friday night when the car struck the victims on a sidewalk, though how or why the car ended up on the sidewalk in the first place remains a mystery.
When North Carolina drivers get behind the wheel of a car, they assume a reasonable duty of care for other drivers as well as pedestrians and cyclists on the road. A second of inattention may result in a car accident that could cause serious injury or even death. Unfortunately, a fatal car accident occurred in Onslow County on Thursday, June 14.
A North Carolina car accident turned tragic when an 8-year-old child died from her injuries. This particular accident took an even more tragic turn when it was later discovered that the man allegedly responsible for the accident intentionally turned his vehicle toward his girlfriend, to whom he was engaged to be married, and her daughter before the accident.
When operating any type of vehicle, drivers assume a reasonable duty of care for the safety of others on the road. While diligence and being watchful can prevent many accidents, sometimes a small careless error can result in tragic consequences. In recent news, a motorcycle accident took the life of 68-year-old North Carolina man. The accident occurred on the night of Friday, April 20, in Wilmington. The motorcycle accident occurred after the man turned left in front of a Port City Taxi.
A freak truck accident resulted in the death of a North Carolina teenager on March 30 in Wilmington. The 17-year-old was sitting in the back of a pickup truck attempting to hold down a mattress that was leaning against the roof of the truck cab when the accident occurred. Suddenly a gust of wind blew him and the mattress out of the back of the pickup truck on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge. The teen suffered head trauma from the fall, resulting in his death.
Most the time, when people think about a car accident that results in the injury of others, they automatically assume two vehicles were involved. Unfortunately, personal injury and wrongful death can occur in single-vehicle accidents as well. Recently, a single-vehicle crash that took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, claimed the lives of three people and resulted in the hospitalization of a fourth.
