New Truck Accident Article Added by North Carolina Attorney, John C. | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Your instinct to get out of the way and say a little prayer when you are passed at a high rate of speed by a large semi on Interstate 85 (I-85) headed to Henderson, North Carolina (NC), or on U.S. Route 64 headed to Raleigh is smart.  There are a lot of truck-related crashes in North Carolina.  Nationally, there are over 500,000 accidents involving large trucks each year and 5,000 of these involve someone ending up dead on the roadway.  The recent library item we added tells some of the story about tractor-trailer wrecks on North Carolina highways.
