North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer Perspective:
The exact cause of this tragic accident is still being investigated, but it is worth noting that excessive speed is a factor in the majority of car accidents. We should always obey speed limits when we are driving, and slow down if road conditions are less than optimal.
We wish the best to the families of the victims in this tragic case, and would like to suggest that they speak to a personal injury lawyer in North Carolina. The family of the injured man could receive financial restitution in a civil lawsuit. He could receive financial compensation for pain, suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.
