Impairment suspected in fatal two-car crash in Charlotte

The front passenger seat in an automobile is sometimes ominously referred to as the "suicide seat" because persons who sit in that seat are especially vulnerable to serious injury or death in a head-on collision. A recent head-on motor vehicle accident in northwest Charlotte proved the sad truth of this name.

Underride protector fails to protect driver in rear-end crash

Anyone who has driven on an Interstate highway has undoubtedly wondered about the horizontal bar on the rear of semi-trailer trucks. Why is it there? What does it do? The bars are called underride protectors or rear guards, and they are supposed to prevent passenger vehicles from sliding under the truck in the event of a rear-end collision. As a recent accident in Charlotte demonstrates, they do not always fulfill their function.

Four killed in church van accident

Churches in North Carolina often use vans to transport parishioners, youth groups and church staff to activities at other churches and religious organizations. Such trips are generally safe for all concerned, but occasionally, other drivers create unexpected hazards. On May 28, a church-owned van was carrying a number of parishioners to a revival meeting at another church. The van was turning into the church drive way when a Ford F-450 truck rear-ended it. The results of the collision were calamitous.

Fiery bus accident near Uptown Charlotte kills one, injures four

Buses often appear to be very safe, because they are larger than most vehicles that share the roads and strongly built to withstand crashes. Unhappily, buses can experience accidents caused by driver error, lack of proper maintenance and, of course, collisions with another vehicle. A recent bus accident near Uptown Charlotte tragically demonstrated the risks faced by bus passengers.

Alcohol suspected as cause of fatal motor vehicle accident

The exact cause of a motor vehicle accident can be difficult to prove, especially when one of the drivers is killed in the collision. Witness accounts can then become an especially valuable source of evidence. A recent three-vehicle collision in west Charlotte shows how police often turn to witnesses' accounts to establish the cause of an accident.

What evidence may be useful in motor vehicle accident claims?

Getting enough compensation after a motor vehicle accident can be important to the recovery of a car crash victim. If a victim does not have the financial resources they need to get proper medical care and rehabilitation, they may be forced to live with the injuries from their accident for the rest of their lives. Therefore, when it comes to pursuing compensation in a motor vehicle accident case, victims in North Carolina can benefit from having the best possible evidence to prove liability.

Car accidents can occur due to many different circumstances

Car accidents are unfortunately common. Most North Carolina residents have been involved in vehicle collisions either as drivers or passengers and most likely emerged from their ordeals with minimal injuries. Sadly, other car accidents are incredibly serious and may cause life-threatening injuries and even deaths. The causes of car accidents stem from several different types of events.

Three-vehicle crash injures 4 in North Carolina

Many Charlotte residents packed up their cars and drove to the homes of family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving with the people they love. While most encountered heavy traffic and frustrating delays, an unfortunate few were involved in serious motor vehicle accidents on the roads of the state. Over the weekend, several vehicles were involved in a serious crash that left four people hurt.

Protect your rights after an injury-causing vehicle accident

A minor motor vehicle accident can be a major drain on a person's time and energy. From filing insurance and police reports to having their vehicle assessed for repairs, a North Carolina resident may find that they have to take time off from work, miss family commitments, and reorganize their life just to set their lives back on the right course. These inconveniences, though, are nothing compared to the traumas that accident victims can suffer when they are subjected to extreme physical harm in their crashes.
