Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal car crashes in the state of South Carolina take the lives of hundreds of people annually. Unfortunately, we seem innocent people die as a result of traffic crashes caused by negligence. Some of the leading factors in car crashes include impairment, distractions, and drivers who fail to yield.
Any type of traffic accident has the potential to cause severe injuries to those involved. Regrettably, when drivers are ejected from their vehicles, they are more likely to suffer fatal injuries and collisions. Car crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States. And while many people survive crashes without serious injuries, those who are ejected from their vehicles are much more likely to be killed or seriously hurt.
Seatbelts are one of the most important safety features in a car, and they can greatly reduce the severity of injuries in a crash. However, they are not always enough to keep someone from being ejected from a vehicle.
There are several reasons why car crashes with ejections tend to be more serious than other types of crashes. First, the victim is often thrown from the vehicle at high speeds, which can cause severe injuries or even death. Second, seatbelts are not always enough to keep someone from being ejected from a vehicle. And third, many ejections occur in rollover accidents, which are often particularly deadly.
