South Carolina High-Speed Crashes

Charleston, SC - I-26 & Rutledge Ave Reported Site of Injury Crash

Over the previous 20 years, speeding was a factor in one-third of the reported traffic fatalities in the United States. In South Carolina, it’s common practice for drivers to exceed the posted speed limit, which is risky for traffic security. Nearly 39% of South Carolina’s fatal traffic accidents between 2010 and 2019 involved speeding, according to data gathered from collisions.

If you have been hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence, a personal injury lawyer can help you by submitting an insurance claim or filing a lawsuit on your behalf to obtain financial compensation for all of your expenses and other damages. If you experienced harm, you might want to consider hiring a qualified lawyer. You have the legal right to seek compensation for your injuries if we can show that the collision you were involved in was caused by the carelessness or reckless driving of another driver.
