Do More Than Half of Rocky Mount Car Accidents Result in Injuries?
Rocky Mount calls two counties home – Edgecombe and Nash. Due to the way data is kept, it’s difficult to compare Rocky Mount’s car accident data to the county at-large. What we do know is that, according to the NCDOT in 2019, there were 1,564 reported crashes, which resulted in 901 injuries. While there may be more than one injury in a given crash, the number of injuries reported is more than half the number of crashes.
And when you’re injured in a car wreck that’s not your fault, your life will change. Bills may pile up. You may miss work. You may not be able to do the things you love or are accustomed to due to your injury. And then there’s the insurance company…contact a car accident attorney in Rocky Mount to help you seek the maximum amount of compensation you may deserve, and try to get your life back on track.
More Manufacturing Jobs, More Danger
Historically, Rocky Mount has been blessed with textile and agricultural jobs, as well as a healthy employment in municipal, education, and health care fields. Moving forward, Rocky Mount is trending toward manufacturing. Between 2014 and 2018, manufacturing grew in the area by 11.8%, with 108% more manufacturing jobs than the national average.
With existing pharmaceutical jobs with Pfizer, the CSX cargo terminal, and the projected Triangle Tire factories being built in the area, Rocky Mount’s manufacturing growth brings many potential jobs – and risks – to area residents.
If you’re hurt on the job, North Carolina law has rules for how workers can obtain potential compensation. However, the system isn’t exactly easy to navigate, and a workers’ compensation attorney in Rocky Mount may be able to assist you in obtaining the benefits you may deserve.
When You’re Hurt By Accident, Was It Really an Accident?
We take our health for granted. For most people, days pass uneventfully and we’re in a comfortable routine. But what happens if you get hurt because someone was careless, and that routine is shattered? North Carolina law has several facets dealing with injuries caused by the negligence of another – and they can be specific.
Let’s say you’re bitten by a dog, and injure your arm. North Carolina has very specific laws governing dog bites. What happens when a medical provider fails to fulfill their duty of care, resulting in an injury and medical malpractice? Or what if you’re hurt by a defective product? In all of these cases, the law may have nuances that determine what you may seek in compensation. Contact a personal injury attorney in Rocky Mount to discuss your case and protect you rights.
