With all the attention justifiably paid to drunk driving, texting while driving and certain other high-risk behaviors behind the wheel, basic driving safety principles may get less attention than they deserve. Many injury-causing and fatal car accidents are caused by reckless driving in other forms — from speeding to running red lights, failures to yield, tailgating, making unsafe lane changes and more.
If you have been seriously injured or lost a family member in a North Carolina auto accident, you should have skilled legal representation on your side whether the other driver was cited for a traffic violation or not. Practicing since 1994, our Raleigh-Durham reckless driving accident attorneys have successfully resolved many cases requiring:
Car accidents happen so quickly — often without allowing victims even a split second to react or brace for impact — that it can be challenging to determine what caused the crash and what occurred just prior to it. For example, drivers often dispute who had the right of way in an intersection accident or which driver entered another’s lane on the highway.
If you believe an accident was caused by another driver, relying on your own insurance company to establish fault and pursue all the compensation you deserve is a major risk. You can count on the insurance company to protect its own financial interests, but not to prioritize your maximum recovery and well-being. That is exactly the level of dedication we consistently provide at The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A.
