Moped Accidents in North Carolina
Every year, thousands of motorcycle and moped accidents happen in the state of North Carolina due to the reckless acts of others. In one recent year’s time, it is estimated that approximately 4,269 accidents took place throughout the state of North Carolina involving one of these vehicles. Because motorcyclists and moped drivers have no protection from harm when involved in an accident with a larger vehicle, they are more likely to lose their lives in the event of an accident. It is crucial that families who have lost a loved one in an accident have legal help on their side.
