Charlotte Car Accident Data
This infographic compiles information from a recent report by the Charlotte Department of Transportation. CDOT analyzed the data from the 31,000 car crashes and found that there are certain days, times, months, and road conditions where you are more likely to get into a wreck in Charlotte.
Additionally, the CDOT study reported the most likely time of day to get killed in a car crash is noon, and pedestrians are likely to get hit by a car around midnight. Most of the car accident deaths occurred when the car left the roadway and struck a fixed object. Those that were killed were most likely not wearing a seatbelt.
No matter how much you work to prevent getting into an accident, there’s always the possibility that another car on the road can cause you to get injured in a crash. If you are injured in an accident that’s not your fault, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
