Car Wrecks in South Carolina
One of the most dangerous activities we engage in on a daily basis is driving a car. In 2018, South Carolina had the highest rate of fatal collisions per capita in the country. Automobiles, trucks, and SUVs were responsible for roughly 65 percent of all traffic deaths in the state that year, with 1,037 fatalities. Other motorists are to blame for 82 percent of all fatal crashes in South Carolina, according to statistics.
Auto accidents can leave victims and their families with serious injuries as well as financial losses. The resulting harm has the potential to destroy the victim’s life completely. In South Carolina, car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury. The state’s major cities’ congested streets set the stage for a major or life-threatening collision. These serious and fatal collisions can result in medical bills, lost wages due to inability to return to work, and long-term pain and suffering. Dealing with the aftermath of a collision without the help of a Columbia personal injury lawyer can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
