Car Accident Deaths in North Carolina

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents kill more than 35,000 people in the U.S. every year. That's nearly 100 people every day.

The leading causes of fatal car accidents are:

  • Drunk driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted drivers
  • Weather
  • Inexperienced or elderly drivers
  • Car manufacturing defects
  • Street and highway construction or defects
Of those, Distracted Driving is on the rise with the advent of cell phones and smart phones and their near constant use while driving. 

If a loved one died in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident in North Carolina due to someone else's negligence, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver. 

Under North Carolina's Wrongful Death Act, a family may recover damages that include medical care and treatment, reasonable funeral expenses, lost income, and other damages from the loved one not here any more. 

If a loved one has died in an auto accident, it's important to speak to an experienced North Carolina car accident attorney right away.
