Is a plea bargain a good idea for your case?

Plea bargains can be a good defense strategy for some defendants who want to avoid going to trial. There are many benefits to a plea bargain, but they are not the best option for every case. Understanding when plea bargains may be an option and the possible downsides can help you make an informed decision about how you want to proceed with your case.

Actions that contribute to a motor vehicle accident

It is hard for some people to understand there are drivers who act in a negligent manner. They don't care about what is going on around them. All they care about is driving how they want, ensuring that they make it from point A to point B on their own terms.

How big a problem are distracted drivers for motorcyclists?

April is National Distracted Driving Month and so it's a good time to discuss how even a temporary distraction can cause a lifetime of suffering. People often forget that motorcycles are much less forgiving than cars and other vehicles in accidents. Due to their relatively small size and weight, there's no such thing as a simple "fender bender" when a car, truck or SUV strikes a motorcycle.

Who are uninsured motorists?

Nationwide, approximately 16 percent of drivers are currently on the road but do not have the legally required car insurance. In North Carolina, this number is significantly lower at only 8 percent, according to statistics gathered by the Insurance Research Council, but that is still almost 1 in 10 drivers without insurance. When these drivers cause accidents that injure others, this means that there is no insurance company to pay out anything, and the onus falls on the driver who is very likely not to have enough funds or assets to cover the costs.

How bad is the problem with distracted teens and car accidents?

Most North Carolina motorists are already aware that distracted drivers increase the chances of auto accidents. What many people fail to realize is just how big a problem distraction while driving can be for younger drivers with little experience.
