Rear End Accidents in Goldsboro
Goldsboro is a relatively large city in North Carolina and the roadways are busy with traffic. Rear-end accidents are not uncommon in the area.
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), there were 4,683 auto crashes in Goldsboro in 2020. 1,040 of those crashes resulted in injury.
While we can’t definitively say how many rear-end accidents occurred in Goldsboro during that time period, we can make some assumptions based on other data provided by NCDOT.
For instance, 22.3 percent of all auto accidents in North Carolina in 2019 involved driver inattention. In many cases, driver inattention may result in a rear-end accident, which lets us estimate that as many as 1,044 accidents in Goldsboro may have been rear-end accidents in 2019.
Regardless of the exact number, rear-end accidents are extremely common in the area. Our Goldsboro personal injury lawyers have handled hundreds of these cases in the last several years alone.

“How Do I File a Rear-End Accident Claim?”
If you’ve been injured in a rear end collision, you may be eligible for a personal injury claim seeking damages for your injuries and other losses.
In North Carolina, you have three years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim (in most cases), and two years from the date of death to file wrongful death claim.
Most personal injury claims can be resolved through negotiations with the insurance company without going to trial. However, an experienced rear end collision lawyer can put pressure on the insurance companies by being willing to take a case to trial if a reasonable offer is not made. On average, less than 10 percent of personal injury cases go to trial.
You can file a rear-end accident injury claim on your own, but studies show that by hiring a personal injury lawyer, victims recover roughly 3 times more compensation than those who don’t hire an attorney, on average.
