Collision Dangers in Guilford County
Guilford County is considered to be a part of the Greensboro and High Point area in North Carolina. Its population of more than 448,000 as of the 2010 census made Guilford County the third most populated county within its state. The County spans 658 miles, of which just 1.8 percent is water.
Guilford is home to the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park and the County is adjacent to Rockingham, Randolph, Davidson, Forsyth, and Alamanace Counties. It is served by 14 major highways including I 40, 73, 74, 75, 785, and 840. In addition to both interstates and U.S. highways, Guilford also has many local roads throughout the county.
On any of these roads, at any time of the day or night, there could be drivers who are breaking the rules of the road. Some may be intoxicated, or on their cell phones, or driving when they are too tired. All of these motorists engaging in these and other high-risk behaviors are putting the lives of their passengers and others on the road in jeopardy. If they cause a collision, they must be held accountable for the damage.

When an injury occurs, victims who wish to pursue a damage claim will have two possible ways of recovering compensation:
- Settlement: Settlement means you accept an offer the insurance company made to you. You may not get as much money as you would have in court, depending upon whether the insurer accepts full responsibility and depending upon the policy limits. You must sign a waiver releasing the responsible party and the insurer of future liability if you settle.
- Litigation: Litigation can take more time than settlement and it is much more uncertain. There is no guaranteed compensation as there is with a settlement, because you could lose in court. However, if you are able to make a strong case, a sympathetic jury may award you significant damages.
