Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Each day across our state, thousands of trucks and tractor-trailers move across our roadways, delivering important food and supplies that are needed to sustain our livelihoods. Sometimes, however, a negligent driver can cause a truck accident to occur and a commercial truck crash can have very devastating effects on victims. In 2019, there were approximately 10,000 truck accidents in North Carolina, resulting in thousands of injuries and about 100 fatalities. A commercial vehicle is very large and powerful, and the force of a collision can cause significant property damage and personal injuries.
If you or a loved one have been affected by a truck accident in North Carolina, you are likely experiencing a tremendous amount of stress. Medical bills can pile up quickly when a serious accident occurs.
