No matter how many precautions you take, or how safely you drive, accidents can still happen. Unfortunately, despite doing your best to reduce risks, sometimes accidents cannot be avoided. In fact, motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of injuries. In North Carolina in 2017, more than 1,300 people died in auto accidents, and nearly 128,000 were injured.
Many auto accidents are preventable. Whether due to the negligence of distracted driving, the recklessness of speeding, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the end result often remains the same: lives are greatly impacted, sometimes forever.
Since accidents can negatively affect your physical, mental, emotional, and financial well-being, your primary focus after an accident should be to take care of yourself and recover.
