Auto Accidents in South Carolina
South Carolina has one of the highest rates of highway deaths in the country, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Residents of the state drove 19% more miles on the state’s highways between 2000 and 2016, compared to the previous decade. In 2018, one out of every 18 drivers in the state was involved in a car accident, according to the most recent accident statistics.
Auto accidents can result in serious injuries as well as financial losses for victims and their families. The resulting harm has the potential to completely destroy a victim’s life. Car accidents are a major cause of death and serious injury in South Carolina. The busy and congested streets of the state’s major cities set the stage for a major or life-threatening collision. Medical costs, lost income from being unable to return to work, and long-term agony and suffering can all be incurred as a result of these serious and fatal collisions. Without the assistance of a Charleston personal injury lawyer, dealing with the aftermath of a collision can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
