South Carolina Speeding-Related Crashes

Columbia, SC - Victims Hurt in Auto Accident on I-20

It is well known that speeding increases the likelihood of a serious car accident. Thousands of people are killed every year by speeding motorists, with the problem being especially acute in South Carolina. Many fatal accidents are caused directly by speeding. In 2018, 9,378 people were killed in high-speed collisions in the United States, an average of nearly 25 per day.

Even the most cautious drivers face the possibility of being involved in a serious collision. It is critical for accident victims 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, and colliding with another vehicle is unavoidable in some circumstances. In the event of a collision, most drivers, particularly those who are not represented by a Columbia personal injury attorney, are unsure what to do.
