North Carolina highways can get congested. Large trucks, commuters on their way to work, tourists from out of state, families heading out for a vacation, and other traffic often clog heavily traveled routes like I-95, I-40 or I-85, to name a few interstates.
With a high volume of traffic comes a higher risk of serious injuries from car accidents. If you or a loved one was injured, or a loved one was killed in a North Carolina highway accident, contact an experienced attorney for a free case evaluation. Call 1-866-900-7078.
A closer look at highway accidents in North Carolina
The following are just some of the highways in North Carolina where we have seen serious accidents: I-95, I-795, I-40, I-540, I-85, I-465, I-74, I-73, I-77, and I-26.
The state also has the second largest state highway system in the nation, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation. The state maintains 80,000 miles of highways. While the miles and miles of roads in North Carolina allow people to go efficiently from one place to another, they also can be the scenes of serious accidents involving catastrophic injuries or fatal injuries.
When highway accidents happen, they can involve vehicles traveling at high speeds. The following are a few types of common highway accidents:
- Rear-end accident: A rear-end accident might occur during a sudden slowdown of traffic. A driver who is not paying attention might slam into the back of a car that has slowed down or stopped, which can cause a multiple-vehicle accident.
- Lane-departure crash: This might occur when a driver changes lanes without adequately checking mirrors for approaching cars or motorcycles.
- Head-on collision: This type of accident might occur when a driver enters the highway from the wrong direction. A driver who falls asleep behind the wheel might cross the median and cause a head-on crash.
- Speeding accidents: Speeding sometimes is a factor in a highway accident (such as a rear-end collision). In some cases, a motorist is driving too fast for the weather conditions and might lose control of the vehicle and cause an accident.
