Every day, cyclists are injured or killed in collisions across South Carolina, and bicycle fatalities have been rising across the country, despite a decrease in the overall rate of collisions.

In 2010, there were 14 bicycle fatalities in the state.

If a loved one was killed in a car accident, you should file a wrongful death claim. A number of complicated rules govern these claims, including who can file a claim and when a wrongful death claim in South Carolina is appropriate.
