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 collisions in 2018. With 1,037 fatalities, automobiles, trucks, and SUVs accounted for roughly 65% of all fatal vehicle incidents in the state that year. According to data, other motorists are responsible for roughly 82% of all fatal crashes in South Carolina.
As a result of a catastrophic vehicle accident, victims and their families may suffer serious injuries as well as financial losses, and the injuries that accompany them have the potential to completely devastate a victim’s life. Car accident victims may face medical bills, lost wages due to inability to return to work, and long-term agony and suffering. Without the assistance of a Gaffney personal injury lawyer, victims and their families may find it difficult to deal with the aftermath of a traffic accident.
