Most Dangerous Roads in Charlotte
Each time you get behind the wheel, there is a small but ever-present risk of getting into an accident. Of course, by exercising care, paying attention to your surroundings and using sound judgment, most of these accidents can be avoided. However, on certain roads, the risks are higher than on others, and avoiding an accident may be an impossibility. At the Olsinski Law Firm, PLLC, our car accident lawyers proudly represent accident victims and grieving families in all types of motor vehicle accident cases. With our help, you can effectively pursue a claim against the negligent motorist who is responsible for the collision to get you the compensation you need, deserve, and are legally entitled to.What Are Charlotte’s Most Dangerous Roads?
By all accounts, Charlotte is a growing city, averaging a population increase of about 4 percent per year. With all these new residents, it means existing roads are more crowded, new roads are being built, and more drivers are unfamiliar with the area. The result is that there is a correlation between a high number of new residents and an increase in motor vehicle accidents.
For the most part, car accidents occur throughout the city at a fairly high rate; however, there are certain roads that see an especially high number of accidents. This may be for any number of reasons; however, some of the contributing factors to Charlotte car accidents include:
- New or confusing traffic patterns,
- A high number of bars or restaurants,
- Frequent or unpredictable traffic,
- Construction zones,
- The presence of large trucks,
- Poor road design, and
- Missing or confusing road signs.
We have prepared a list of the most dangerous roads and intersections in Charlotte. This list is based on official data from the North Carolina Department of Transportation as well as our own experience handling countless car accident lawsuits over the years.
- Interstate 77
- Interstate 277
- Interstate 85

Of course, accidents can happen anywhere, and when they do, you may not know where to turn for help. At the Olsinski Law Firm, PLLC, we have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients who were injured in motor vehicle accidents. As skilled negotiators, we are often able to resolve our clients’ cases without the need for a long, drawn-out trial; however, because we are also experienced litigators, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial if the insurance company is unwilling to offer a fair settlement.Damages in a Car Accident Lawsuit

- Medical bills,
- Future medical expenses,
- Lost wages,
- Decrease in earning capacity,
