The North Carolina Injury Lawyer’s Perspective: Car accidents can seriously injure and kill their victims; as we see in this news report, they can also disrupt a person’s life substantially, as the three injured students are softball players for Elon University and may be too injured to play the sport. Our sympathies are with the students who may be unable to do what they love doing.
