Johnston, SC (November 28, 2022) – A driver was killed, and two others were injured in the aftermath of a car crash in the Johnston area on Saturday evening, November 26.
The fatal accident took place at the intersection of Monument Drive and SC-121 at around 7:07 p.m. It was reported that a 2005 Chevrolet SUV with two passengers and a 1997 Chevrolet sedan were involved in the crash. The SUV was headed north as the sedan was traveling west at the time of the accident.
The driver of the sedan was killed in the crash. Two occupants in the SUV were injured and hospitalized. No further updates have been provided at this time.
Local authorities are investigating the cause of the deadly accident.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that over 30,000 Americans lose their lives in car accidents each year. About $41 billion in medical costs and missed earnings were incurred in 2005 by accident victims and their loved ones. In South Carolina, driving is very dangerous and results in tens of thousands of injuries each year. To ensure that they are able to protect their legal rights, those who have been affected by these terrible accidents should seek the assistance of a lawyer.
Once a family member passes away, you must be prepared to protect your family from the countless unforeseen costs that could result from wrongful death. You can get help from your lawyer to understand the complex legal processes involved in a wrongful death case. The executor of the estate may add a survival motion to claims brought on behalf of the estate in a wrongful death case. The viability of a claim depends on how much pain and suffering the deceased would have undergone had they lived.
As wrongful death attorneys in South Carolina, we have assisted neighborhood families who have lost a loved one in an accident. When a person in the state passes away as a result of an accident, there are two distinct legal claims that may be asserted. The surviving family members and beneficiaries of a deceased person may file a claim in the first category of claims, known as a wrongful death action, in order to be made whole for their loss.
Our top concern at Monge & Associates has always been supporting families who lost a loved one as a result of another party’s carelessness. Our lawyers assist the surviving family members in bringing a claim against the responsible parties following a fatal accident in order to obtain fair compensation. If a family member died as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should not have to pay for their burial and other accident-related expenses.
