Fatal Auto Accidents in North Carolina
Fatal accidents are the cause of thousands of deaths across the United States every year. The unfortunate truth is that no matter how safely you operate your vehicle, there is always another person sharing the road who is not as attentive and caring. As a result, we continue to see many people lose their lives due to fatal collisions caused by negligence. Some of the leading factors in fatal collisions include distractions, drunk driving, failing to yield, and tailgating.
