Almost every day we read I the newspaper or view on television reports about individuals who are killed or seriously injured due to the negligence of another. It might be the drunk driver who collides head-on with a car carrying a young family. It may be a woman raped at a hotel because there is insufficient security. It may be a tractor-trailer which careens out of control, killing a pedestrian. These tragedies can be life-changing events. A young worker may be disabled and unemployed. A child may be permanently crippled. A family may lose its breadwinner.
We live in a dangerous and fast-paced world, where such tragedies are all too common. When serious personal injuries or death result from the negligence of another party, recovery may be available. More than one party may be responsible. Even if there is only one potential defendant, insurance may cover the losses. In fact, there may be more that one insurance policy. Furthermore, a business may be responsible for the negligent acts of its employee.
It is important for the injured people and their families to contact a lawyer in the event of serious personal injuries or death caused by the negligence of others. Many North Carolinians unknowingly have lost their rights by quickly accepting insufficient amounts from insurance companies, and signing a promise not to sue.
