Charleston, SC - Westbound Lanes Blocked After Injury Crash on I-26

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were around 1,000 fatal traffic accidents in South Carolina in 2017. Nearly 20 accident-related deaths per 100,000 residents in the state are a traffic fatality rate that is nearly twice as high as the national average. Injured parties receive lost compensation because automobile accidents are the nation’s largest cause of death and serious injury.

Some of the out-of-pocket expenses you spent as a direct result of the vehicle accident you were involved in might be covered by a personal injury settlement. Medical expenses, pain and suffering reimbursement, lost income, prescription drug costs, and in some circumstances, lost future earning potential, can all be covered by a personal injury claim. Your insurance coverage may only cover a percentage of your losses, so if you want the entire amount to which you are legally entitled, you will need the help of legal counsel.

Auto accidents can happen in a couple of seconds.
