Commercial truck insurers slow to embrace new safety features

People who shop for a new car at a Raleigh dealership are often surprised to find so many vehicles outfitted with technologies that can help drivers stay safe. New vehicles can warn drivers that they are drifting in their lanes, following another vehicle too closely, and that another vehicle is in their blind spot. Some new vehicles can park themselves in tight spots, help drivers back up safely and slam on the brakes in an emergency, among other safety features. A new-car buyer can also find that their insurer will reward them with lower rates for having the advanced technologies on-board.

Self-driving 18-wheelers ready to roll

When you are driving on the interstate highways that connect Raleigh to other parts of North Carolina and the nation, there is no doubt that the vehicles pose the greatest risks to you and your passengers are the behemoth 18-wheelers. Tractor-trailers are difficult to stop and hard to maneuver, but they are essential components of transportation and commerce.

Downtown Raleigh crash highlights dangers of e-scooters

The rise of micro-mobility in Raleigh and across the U.S. over the past few years has been fueled by a desire by consumers for cheap, convenient transportation options in urban areas clogged by automobiles. The micro-mobility trend has seen the emergence of shared and dockless electric scooters (or e-scooters) marketed by companies such as Lime and Bird in Raleigh.

Truck crashes into interstate traffic jam; four dead in fiery crash

Regular readers of our Raleigh personal injury law blog know that we have often touched on the dangers posed to motorists by the massive tractor-trailers that roar along on our interstate highways. We have rarely seen the type of devastation witnessed earlier this week in a crash near Denver in which an out-of-control 18-wheeler sped down a hill and slammed into a traffic jam, starting a chain-reaction inferno on an interstate.

Interstate 95 big rig crash near Raleigh leaves two injured

It takes just a little while to drive the 30 miles southeast of Raleigh to get to Smithfield. The Johnston County seat was earlier this week the site of an 18-wheeler crash on Interstate 95 that resulted in injuries to two people, law enforcement officials said.

Stop and read: April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Raleigh media is like and national news outlets; all spend much of their air time and page space devoted to political scandals, sports, entertainment and the weather. While all certainly have their place, those topics too often crowd out important issues deserving of time and attention.

Speed and impairment loom large in fatal firetruck crash

Regular readers of our Raleigh personal injury blog know that impairment and excess speed are often cited in motor vehicle accidents. We read recently of a deadly crash in which both factors were found to be present in a wreck that happened nearly a year ago.

Who or what is to blame if you are hit by a truck?

If you are like most drivers, you have probably felt a little nervous when driving next to an 18-wheeler. There are good reasons for these feelings. While semi-truck accidents do not occur as frequently as those among passenger vehicles, the results of a wreck with a large commercial truck can be devastating. Even a seemingly minor collision can do serious damage to a smaller motor vehicle and its occupants.
