Car Accidents in South Carolina
The South Carolina Department of Public Safety keeps track of traffic accident statistics, and this year 741 people have perished on the state’s highways. Numerous men, women, and children will thus be unable to return to their homes, families, schools, places of employment, or social networks, and many others sustained serious injuries. Despite having access to seat belts, 263 of the 505 fatalities were not using them at the time of the collisions that claimed their lives.
Anyone harmed in a car accident needs to seek medical attention as soon as possible. A trip to the hospital is frequently required following serious collisions involving both drivers and passengers. Different types of injuries will display symptoms at different times, and some may take days or even weeks to manifest, while others may occur immediately after an injury. If you delay seeking medical care, the insurance company can try to argue that the extent of your injuries is overstated.
Drivers sometimes make choices that endanger other users of the road, such as other motorists, passengers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and others, whether they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, distracted by their phones, or driving too quickly for the conditions.
