The North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
This was a terrible accident that effected the lives of not only the victims, but their families and other loved ones. We do not know what exactly caused the driver to veer off the road and crash into a tree. Was the driver speeding? Were they distracted? Was there a mechanical issue? We will have to wait and see what the accident report reveals. If it turns out that the driver was reckless while operating their SUV, the family members of the victims may be have grounds to pursue a wrongful death claim. They should consider contacting a North Carolina wrongful death attorney to discuss their legal options.
