This type of accident can make a person’s blood boil. A man who was just riding in a vehicle being driven recklessly is no longer with us through no fault of his own. And after the crash, the driver didn’t even have the decency to tend to the passenger. No, the driver decided to put themselves first and fled the scene hoping to evade responsibility.

Our condolencest go out to the victim’s family, who should consider speaking with a wrongful death attorney in North Carolina. Given the circumstances surrounding the passenger’s untimely death, the family may have grounds to take legal action through a wrongful death claim
