For many decades, engineers, politicians and law enforcement organizations have fought a good fight against injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents. Engineers work to make cars more crashworthy. Politicians pass laws designed to protect people who travel our roads and highways — such as placing limits on driving privileges for teenagers. Law enforcement agents conduct DUI checks on holidays, such as New Year's Eve, when many people tend to drive while intoxicated.
Despite all these well-intentioned efforts at making driving safer, accidental injuries continue to be a painful fact of life in our fast-paced world. You may have arrived at this web page because you or a family member was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in North Carolina or South Carolina — or because you lost a loved one in a fatal car wreck.
