Deadly Airplane Crashes in South Carolina

Conway, SC - Update: Terry Druffell, Barrie McMurtrie Die in Horry Co Plane Crash

According to the statistics, flying is a lot less dangerous than driving. Flying may cut down on travel time and is more convenient than other modes of transportation. However, if a plane crash does take place, the aftermath may be devastating. These accidents claim the lives of hundreds of defenseless people and can give rise to wrongful death claims. The unfortunate truth is that pilot mistake is the most typical reason when crashes occur.

Accidents involving airplanes are almost often harrowing experiences that result in very few, if any, survivors. Finding out what led to an airplane crash is an exceedingly challenging task that can take a number of months and even years in certain cases. In most cases, filing a personal injury lawsuit is the next step once an investigation into the accident has been completed.
