An Experienced Raleigh + Durham Personal Injury Law Firm

North Carolina is a fault, or tort-based, car insurance state. This means that the person who is deemed legally at-fault for the accident is held liable for injuries and damages caused by the accident. Proving that a driver was at fault for the accident depends on evidence such as witness statements and police reports, and the Durham car accident attorneys at Hyland + Padilla, PLLC can investigate an incident and analyze the evidence to build your case.

Drunk Driving Accidents

One of the most dangerous things to do while behind the wheel is drinking and driving. Drunk drivers have slower reaction times and may drive in a reckless manner. Additionally, a victim of a drunk driving accident may be entitled to recovering damages for any injuries or even deaths.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately one out of every three fatal vehicle collisions involve a driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. In North Carolina, 0.08% is the limit at which a driver is considered to be “driving while impaired” (DWI).

Drunk driving includes:

Drink While Operating A Vehicle

Drinking While Operating A Non-Motorized Vehicle (Bike, Golf Cart)

Buzzed Driving & Open Container

Distracted Driving Accidents

According to the National Safety Council, over 330,000 people are injured each year from accidents due to distracted driving. Numerous studies have shown that while responding to or reading a text takes 5 seconds, in that time you have traveled the length of a football field. In that amount of space, many factors can change on the road. If you or a loved one was injured by a distracted driver, you have the right to see compensation for your injuries. At Hyland + Padilla PLLC, our compassionate, experienced legal team can help you build a strong persona injury case, so you are able to recover the compensation you need to move forward.

Forms of distracted driving include:

Eating Or Drinking While Driving

Grooming / Applying Makeup

Texting & Reading

Adjusting The Radio Or Music
