Fatal Car Accidents in North Carolina
Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle accident can be incredibly devastating. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people across the United States are killed every year as a result of vehicle collisions. In many cases, these accidents are a direct result of reckless and negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of motor vehicle collisions recorded in our state include:
- Failing to yield: Ignoring right-of-way rules can lead to dangerous conflicts between vehicles, resulting in accidents.
- Fatigue: Tiredness impairs cognitive function and reaction time, elevating the risk of accidents and fatal crashes.
- Overcorrection: Overcorrection occurs when drivers respond excessively to a situation, causing loss of vehicle control and accidents.
