NC Car Accident Injury Lawyers: Moped Driver Injured After Head-On Collision

The best NC moped accident injury attorneysA man on a moped was killed after a woman driving an SUV in High Point, NC pulled out in front of him.  The victim, Arnold Glenn Lewis, 50, of Sophia, died at the hospital shortly after the crash.  Unfortunetly fatal moped accidents happen much more than people realize. Mopeds have become a common form of transportation among the streets of towns such as Kitty Hawk, Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Mopeds are a great economical and fun form of transportation. They are easy to maneuver and operate on the congested summer streets in the Outer Banks. Many locals own them and they can also be purchased or rented on the island.  Mopeds are limited to speeds less than 35 mph which can cause a problem when sharing the roadway with licensed vehicles in areas where the speed limit exceeds 35 mph. The moped's visual profile is smaller compared to even a motorcycle.

Moped operators do not fare well in accidents involving the moped and a car. Head injury, cervical spine injury, broken limbs and eternal organ damage are common results of these terrible accidents. It could take months, or even years, of rehabilitation to fully recover from a moped accident.  Reckless driving can be extremely injurious and traumatic for the victims of car accidents; we have seen countless cases wherein one motorist was injured or even killed by the negligence of the other. If you or a loved one has had to deal with such terrible circumstances, our deepest sympathies are with you.  Should you or a family member ever have to deal with injuries or deaths as the result of reckless driving, you should consider speaking to a NC personal injury lawyer to find out what legal compensation you may be entitled to.
