A North Carolina man, who collided with a pickup truck on Carolina Beach Road, was pronounced dead at the scene. A Lieutenant for the Wilmington, North Carolina Police Department said a white Harley Davidson was heading southbound on Carolina Beach Road when the driver of the pickup truck was pulling out of a parking lot.
He was then broadsided by the motorcycle.
The rider of the motorcycle is reported to have died on impact, and Carolina Beach Road was closed off at Independence Boulevard and Raleigh Street and the area was shut-off just like a crime scene. Sometimes you can recover for and injury or wrongful death or personal injury and sometimes suit is not an option.
North Carolina abides by the contributory negligence model for personal injury. This is the least favorable threshold for injury victims. This means that if you are negligent in any way – even 1 percent at fault, you cannot collect one dollar in damages. It is important to have a skilled attorney to prove that the plaintiff was not, in any way, at fault.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, there is a chance that you may be able to recover for your injuries. For a free consultation, call the law offices of Robert J. Reeves, P.C. at our Charlotte, North Carolina office at 704-499-9000. We will be pleased to consult with you.
