Residents of the Research Triangle are well acquainted with Interstates 40 and 440 and the many frustrations of living in an area that has outgrown its traffic infrastructure. Daily delays due to congestion and roadwork irritate commuters, who often respond with aggressive maneuvers that increase the likelihood of an injury accident. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, we’ve represented many victims of aggressive or distracted driving on these major routes. Our Raleigh, Charlotte and Durham locations allow us to respond promptly for your request for legal assistance anywhere along I-40 and I-440.
