North Carolina auto accident ends in tragedy on both sides

Apr 19, 2013 Brown Moore & Associates Car Accidents

North Carolina drivers likely know how quickly that auto accidents can happen, and how devastating they can be. One recent auto accident in Mecklenburg County demonstrates just how much so. According to police, a 27-year-old man was driving southbound when he lost control of his car.

After losing control, the car crossed the center line of the roadway into northbound traffic. The right side of the car struck a pickup truck heading northbound. The driver of the pickup truck only sustained minor injuries in the crash. The driver of the car that lost control was killed.

A front seat passenger in the pickup truck was seriously injured and was taken to a local hospital. In addition, a 7-year-old child was also seriously injured and taken to a local hospital. The conditions of those injured in this accident have not been updated since the initial reports following the crash.

It is unclear what caused the driver of the car to lose control in this auto accident. What is clear is that those injured now may face a long road to recovery after an unexpected tragedy. As the investigation continues into the cause of this accident, the victims may choose to investigate their own rights under North Carolina’s personal injury laws. Under such laws, those injured in an auto accident caused by the negligence of another party may seek damages against that party for their injuries, expenses and other losses. In a case like this one, the victims would file a claim against the estate of the deceased driver who may have been responsible for the accident, as well as any separate owner of the vehicle he was driving.
