There is a limited number of entry and exit point to the Outer Banks and the number of visitors to the Northeastern North Carolina area have only increased over the years,. This means roads and highways such as Highway 158 and 168 are heavily congested with people traveling to and from the Outer Banks from Norfolk or Virginia Beach, along with motorists on State Route 64 visiting Nags Head or Cape Hatteras from Raleigh, Durham, Elizabeth City, Charlotte, etc. Once you have arrived in the Outer Banks, whether it's in Corolla, Duck, or Currituck or farther south in Rodanthe, Avon, Hatteras or Ocracoke, the streets and roadways are typucally crowded with tourists and locals alike. This means it is more likely for serious collisions to occur.
If you or a family member was badly hurt in a collision with another motorist in Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, or elsewhere in the Outer Banks, contact Shapiro & Appleton right away. We have been helping injured motorists in and around North Carolina since 1985.

What you and your loved one may be entitled to through a car accident injury claim
- Medical bills and the ongoing cost of care - Medical bills are often more than the initial cost of patching you up after the accident – you could need ongoing physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, special medication, reconstructive surgery, or the need for ongoing, around-the-clock care.
- Loss of wages and loss of future earnings - Often, injuries prevent you from returning to work during your recovery, and sometimes your injuries are so serious that you are no longer able to continue in your field of work or work at all. In these cases, you are compensated for what you would have earned if not for the accident.
- Pain and suffering - How do you put a price on losing a loved one, or having your loved on changed forever due to a catastrophic injury? What about if an accident takes away specific joys from your life, such as playing the piano, engaging in sports, or even walking down the street? Damages from emotional distress seek to make up for these serious matters that some insurance companies think are frivolous.
