North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers

A tragic motor vehicle crash in North Carolina sadly cuts an individual’s life short. The two-car incident took place on a recent Saturday evening. The victim’s family members and friends are left to grapple with how and why the auto accident occurred.

The car accident happened around 7:40 p.m. along North Carolina 61 at an intersection. According to police, the drivers of both of the vehicles involved in the accident suffered injuries in the accident. One individual had to be extricated by rescue workers prior to being taken to a local hospital.

The person who was extricated from his automobile is reported to be in stable condition. However, the other motorist was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. This driver was a minor, under the age of 18. Authorities will continue to investigate the cause of this fatal accident.

If police have confirmed that the injured man caused the accident due to negligence — for example, speeding — then the surviving family members of the individual who died in the crash may file a wrongful death claim against him.

Liability must be established, based upon a showing of negligence before claims for damages will be determined.  The King Law Firm has over 30 years’ experience helping those injured due to the negligence of another.
