Car accidents such as this one are not new for Raleigh’s roadways. Thousands of drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians are injured (and some killed) each year due to motor vehicle accidents.
When negligence of a driver or an auto manufacturer plays a role in a car, bicycle or pedestrian accident, injured parties will have a personal injury claim, entitling them to compensation for their injuries and losses.
