Traffic Accidents in South Carolina
Driving a car is one of the most dangerous activities we engage in on a daily basis. In 2018, South Carolina had the highest per capita rate of fatal crashes in the country. Automobiles, trucks, and SUVs accounted for nearly 65% of all fatal vehicle collisions in the state that year, with 1,037 fatalities. Other motorists are responsible for nearly 82% of all deadly crashes in South Carolina, according to statistics.
Victims and their families may suffer serious injuries as well as financial losses as a result of a serious car accident, and the resulting injuries have the potential to completely devastate a victim’s life. Medical bills, lost wages due to inability to return to work, and long-term pain and suffering may be incurred by car accident victims. Without the assistance of a Charleston personal injury lawyer, dealing with the aftermath of a traffic accident can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
