Wilson Accident Attorneys
Did You Sustain an Injury in a Collision with a Farm Vehicle?
Wilson is the heart of the US tobacco region in eastern North Carolina. As such, many of its suburban housing developments share public roads with farm vehicles.
These roads are particularly dangerous during harvesting season. Unfortunately, the mingling of passenger vehicles and farm equipment is not always harmonious. Collisions between the two frequently cause serious injuries and death.
Accidents involving farm equipment and passenger vehicles are usually lopsided. The heavy-duty, durable tractors can often come through a crash with a few dings and scratches, while cars and lighter vehicles can suffer catastrophic damage.
Dozens of people are killed every year in collisions with farm equipment, many times because they simply aren't used to sharing the road with non-passenger vehicles. Nationwide Insurance created a video to showcase the risks involved when agricultural equipment enters rural and suburban roadways, which can be found here.
