South Carolina High-Speed Crashes

Columbia, SC - I-26 & I-20 Repoted Site of Accident with Injuries

Speeding is a harmful habit that kills a large number of individuals in the United States every year. In 2005, speeding was believed of being responsible for 481 fatalities in South Carolina. In 2011, this number fell to 278 for a short while. Sadly, this was just a temporary recovery, as speeding-related deaths climbed to 305 in 2014. In the previous 30 years, speeding drivers have been present in nearly one-third of all traffic fatalities in the United States.

Even the most careful motorists may be engaged in a fatal accident. It’s vital for those wounded in automobile accidents to get the relief they deserve after being wrongly damaged by a reckless motorist. For most South Carolinians, driving is the primary form of transportation. Unfortunately, the risk of colliding with another vehicle is always there whenever driving. Despite this, most drivers are unsure what to do in the event of an accident, and many accident victims are afraid to file a personal injury lawsuit without the help of an attorney.
