Dangerous roadways in North Carolina and the Southeast region
North Carolina has some of the most scenic highways in the country, leading drivers on winding paths through mountains, farmland and quaint towns to view awe-inspiring vistas, pristine rivers, imposing dams, bucolic fields and centuries-old trees. Our roads are also some of the most dangerous.
U.S. Route 129 — known as The Dragon — is famous for both its beauty and its frightening curves, which make it one of the deadliest in the region. I-40, I-85, NC 75 and NC 78 are also considered perilous, especially during heavy snowfall or torrential rains. Upkeep of these roads is particularly vital to protect drivers from serious accidents. Our lawyers investigate whether the federal, state or municipal department that is responsible for road maintenance failed to perform its duty and so contributed to your loved one’s crash.
Filing a wrongful death action
Our attorneys help your loved one’s personal representative file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the estate. Damages are distributed to beneficiary family members. The estate must file the wrongful death claim within two years from the date of the fatal accident. If you miss this strict statute of limitations, you waive your rights to pursue compensation for your losses.
