Hit-and-run crash in Raleigh involves a pregnant pedestrian

During the last month or two of pregnancy, a mother is likely taking her time to get everything ready. The last thing on her mind is that the baby will arrive much sooner than expected.

Texting and driving can lead to fatal crashes

Everyone in North Carolina relies on technology to make their lives easier. And in some cases, technology serves as a way to entertain them or allow them to stay connected with others. While this can be very beneficial for their busy lives, this does not mean it should be used at all times. However, some motorists think it is fine to pull out their cell phone while they are driving. Even if it is only a mere glance at a text, that could be the second that causes them to collide with another vehicle. All it takes is a fraction of a second to cause a crash.

Helping you prove cause and liability in a car crash

Driving a vehicle is part of many of our routines. A motor vehicle helps us get to work, school, stores and other destinations.

They are also the culprits for many serious automobile collisions occurring on roadways in North Carolina and other states across the nation.

In addition, some injuries do not manifest themselves until days or weeks after the initial accident occurs.
