Car accidents are responsible for hundreds of thousands of injuries, and nearly 40,000 deaths each year. More than ever, these accidents are being caused by the negligence or carelessness of other drivers. This rise in driver negligence is due in part to the many distractions available to motorists, such as mobile phones and touchscreen navigation units.
Truckers and trucking companies must abide by unique rules that do not apply to other motorists. These rules regulate driver behavior, work shift length, and the type and amount of cargo carried on the trucks themselves. When these rules are violated, the truck drivers or trucking companies responsible can be made to compensate victims if their negligence results in accidents.
When individuals ride on motorcycles, they are taking a substantial risk. The combination of minimal safety protection for riders, and distracted or negligent motorists, frequently results in accidents in which riders are seriously injured, or killed. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly five thousand riders are killed in accidents each year, and over eighty thousand are injured.
The North Carolina Wildlife Commission report states that there are over 200 boating accidents in our state each year, with up to twenty fatalities occurring as a result. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident that was caused by another's negligence, such as operating a boat while intoxicated, you may be able to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost income, or damage to property.
A "catastrophic" injury is one that has a significant adverse effect on the victim. A person with a catastrophic injury may experience permanent disability, loss of extremities, chronic pain, a reduced life span, and require long-term treatment or hospitalization. Examples of catastrophic injuries include multiple broken bones, severe burns, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, crush injuries, and paralysis.
If you have lost a family member in an accident due to the negligent or wrongful actions of another, you can take legal action against the responsible party in an effort to recover damages related to the loss. These may include lost income, loss of future economic security, loss of retirement benefits, funeral and burial expenses, and loss of love/support/companionship.
In accordance with premises liability laws, a negligent property owner or manager can be held liable if a person is injured or killed while rightfully on the property. Examples of property negligence include dangerous/poor design, lack of required maintenance, uneven or slippery surfaces, and lack of adequate lighting. A property owner can also be held responsible if there is a lack of security which leads to a visitor being assaulted while on the property.
