Crash in North Carolina Ends Fatally

Posted on May 29, 2012 6:43pm PDT

One driver is dead and another left seriously injured after an accident that occurred on New House Road just outside Ellenboro, NC. Reports about the accident suggest that the collision was caused when the woman of one car, travelling at approximately 60 mph in a 55 mph speed zone made the decision to bypass a car in front of her that was moving at a speed too slow for her liking. However, while maneuvering the risky lane pass, the woman lost control of her car on a slick patch of pavement, causing her to slam into a 1999 Ford Taurus. She was immediately killed upon impact.

The driver who was struck in the head-on collision was also seriously injured and transported to a nearby hospital almost immediately. Information released since the time of the accident indicates that the driver not at fault suffered from multiple broken bones among other physical maladies. Further details surrounding the incident have yet to be released, but enough information is known to assume that the wrongfully injured party in this accident has the right to take legal action.

Wrongfully injured in an accident that was caused by reckless driving behaviors, the victim of the accident has every right to make a personal injury claim, possibly sighing reckless driving behaviors or even negligence. Deeper investigation into the scene may reveal more telling information that could alter the direction of this potential case, but as of now only time will tell how the accident's aftermath will ultimately play out.

At the Lanier Law Group, P.A., we are well practiced in auto accidents of this nature. Having practiced personal injury law for almost three decades, there is very little that we have not seen or even personally handled. Car collisions have long since been one of the leading causes of injury and death among the residents of every state, and ours is no exception. It is for this reason that our firm has made every effort to secure positive results for the victims of injury accidents that seek our support in the wake of their accident.

Over the years, a countless number of innocent individuals have lost their lives or been severely injured in a car accident for which they were not at fault. In 2008 alone, more than 1,400 people were killed in a motor vehicle accident of some sort and more than 200,000 crashes occurred in total. As reported by the North Carolina government, these statistics suggest that around 15 people were killed per every 100,000 set. Speeding was the leading cause in most of these accidents – a form of reckless driving that was also a component of the tragedy described above.

As of now, there is no way to entirely avoid being injured or killed in an accident of this nature. However, what can be done is taking legal action after the fact. Under the guidance of an associate at our office, you can effectively bring your case to court and / or file a claim in order to hold liable the party responsible for your accident. In this way, you will be actively working to prevent future driving behaviors of this nature. Your case may also set in motion and entire revolution of car and driving laws as well as the way cases involving car collisions are handled. Therefore, we encourage you to contact a North Carolina personal injury lawyer from our office as soon as possible to speak with an associate about your case and what can be done to help you recover from the process.
