Charleston, SC - Car Crash at I-26 & Ravenel Bridge Results in Injuries

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, South Carolina has one of the highest rates of traffic deaths in the country. Between 2000 and 2016, residents of the state drove nearly 19% more miles than they had in the previous decade. According to statistics, one out of every 18 drivers in the state was involved in a car accident in 2018.

Even the most cautious drivers face the possibility of being involved in a serious collision. It is critical for those injured in a car accident to pursue the compensation they deserve after being wrongfully injured by a reckless driver. For the vast majority of South Carolinians, driving is their primary mode of transportation. The risk of colliding with another vehicle is unavoidable when driving a car. In any case, most drivers have no idea what to do in the event of a collision, and many accident victims have no idea how to file a personal injury claim without the help of a personal injury lawyer in Charleston.
