South Carolina Car Wrecks
One of the most dangerous activities we engage in on a daily basis is driving a car. South Carolina had the country’s highest per capita rate of fatal crashes in 2018. There were 1,037 reported traffic fatalities in the state that year, with automobiles, trucks, and SUVs accounting for nearly 65% of all fatal vehicle collisions. According to statistics, other motorists are responsible for nearly 82% of all traffic fatalities in South Carolina.
Even the most cautious motorists run the risk of being involved in a serious accident. After being wrongfully injured by a reckless driver, it is critical for accident victims to pursue the compensation they deserve. Driving is the primary mode of transportation for the vast majority of South Carolinians, and the risk of colliding with another vehicle is unavoidable when driving a car. Most drivers are unsure what to do in the event of a collision, especially without the assistance of a Florence personal injury lawyer.
