Greenville is the county seat of Pitt County and the tenth most populous city in North Carolina. Known as the “Emerald City,” it’s home to about 90,000 residents and continues to grow. Much of the city’s life centers around Eastern Carolina University, Greenville’s largest employer and hub for cultural and sporting events. But with its eponymous Mall, University Commons, Arlington Village, and other large commercial centers, Greenville has also become a regional shopping destination, leading to traffic congestion and making accidents more likely. As the city leaders devise strategies for reducing auto accidents, Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban is determined to help accident victims recover the full compensation they deserve.
Greenville is the most congested city in eastern North Carolina. With an improved economy and rise in population, there are more motor vehicles on the city’s roads than ever — and that means more accidents as well. In 2016, North Carolina experienced a 6.3 percent increase in total reported accidents, along with a 5.3 percent increase in injuries and a 4.4 percent increase in traffic deaths. In 2016, Greenville saw 4,571 total crashes, which caused nine fatalities and 1,876 injuries. Of these crashes, 83 were alcohol-related, causing 58 injuries and two deaths. There were 44 pedestrian accidents resulting in 44 injuries and six deaths. Motor vehicles striking bicycles accounted for 23 crashes causing 21 injuries.
Auto accidents are a major cause of painful, debilitating and disabling injuries that can include:
After an accident, always seek medical attention even if you don’t believe you’re seriously hurt. Adrenaline spikes during an accident and can mask your pain. You may not know you’re hurt for hours, but by then your condition can worsen, putting your life in jeopardy.
