Kinston Car Accident Attorneys
Any car accident is a stressful experience, but a serious crash has the potential to change your life forever. For those who have suffered severe and permanent injuries, navigating North Carolina’s insurance laws and requirements can be difficult.
In 2016, over 1,400 deaths and thousands of injuries were caused by car accidents in North Carolina. Just in the Kinston and Lenoir County area, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reports that 10 individuals were killed in auto accidents in 2016.
Unfortunately, many of these accidents could have been prevented if drivers were not distracted, impaired, or otherwise negligent. Regardless of how careful we drive, everyday negligent drivers put others on the road at risk.

What Should I Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident?
If you have been involved in a car accident in which another party was at fault, it is important to protect your legal rights.
