Head-On Collisions in South Carolina
Research has shown that head-on collisions are more likely to result in significant injury or death for occupants of both cars, even though any auto accident has the potential to cause harm. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, frontal crashes claimed the lives of 58 percent of car passengers in 2017. In the US, head-on collisions account for around 10% of fatal accidents.
The consequences of an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness on South Carolina’s roads might easily be severe for everyone involved. The severity of their injuries must constantly be adjusted for by automobile accident victims. On your road to recovery, you might not know where to begin.
