Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death in the United States among the ages of five years to 34 years old. Whether operating a car, truck, or motorcycle, the roadways and highways present an elevated level of danger and potential injury.
In a study issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 2.24 million injuries occurred in 2010 alone – with most of them attributed to motor vehicle crashes. In fact, an auto accident occurs every 14 seconds in the United States. More specifically, auto accidents in North Carolina accounted for 968 fatalities in 2010.
