Deadly Rollover Crashes in South Carolina
In a rollover collision, the risk of serious injury is extremely high, and rollover collisions are over-represented among national highway fatalities. Rollovers were involved in nearly 35 percent of traffic deaths in 2010, despite accounting for less than 2% of reported crashes. Individuals who were not restrained accounted for 69% of rollover fatalities. These accidents killed an estimated 7,600 people.
The grief of losing a loved one can be unbearable, especially if the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, and those close to the victim will almost certainly suffer as well. Families often suffer significant financial losses as a result of wrongful death cases, both now and in the future, necessitating the assistance of a Greenville wrongful death attorney. Unfortunately, many families are unaware that they may be entitled to compensation if a family member dies. Medical bills, burial costs, and lost future earnings are just a few of the losses incurred by the deceased.
