Fatal Trucking Accidents in South Carolina
The American economy heavily depends on large commercial trucks. There are large trucks and big rigs everywhere, and South Carolina is no exception. Drivers of regular passenger cars are at risk while sharing the road with massive commercial trucks. Over 66 percent of all truck accidents, according to a recent study from the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, include a semi-truck.
The grief that follows when someone you care about dies away unexpectedly could be too much to bear. The difficulties you face in the days and weeks after a loss, however, go beyond just mourning. Additionally, you can owe money for expenses like medical bills, funeral expenses, missed wages, and other charges. Sudden death could sometimes be seen as a wrongful death under the rules regulating personal injury, notwithstanding the fact that this is difficult to accept.
The personal injury laws of South Carolina may entitle you to financial compensation if the circumstances surrounding the loss of your loved one qualify as a wrongful death claim.
