The law firm of Downer, Walters & Mitchener is located in Charlotte, North Carolina, and represents victims of motor vehicle accidents. Motor vehicle accidents can happen in many different ways and victims deserve to get the support of legal representatives who understand how different crashes can require different legal strategies.
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.
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.
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.
Many things can increase the likelihood of motor vehicle accidents. This includes objects ending up on the roads that shouldn’t be there, such as road debris.
