Rollover Crashes in South Carolina

Myrtle Beach, SC - One Injured in Rollover Crash at Hwy 17 & Lauderdale Blvd

In a rollover, the danger of suffering a serious injury is extremely high, and these types of collisions are over-represented in national highway deaths. Rollovers were involved in nearly 35% of traffic deaths in 2010, although accounting for less than 2% of reported crashes that year. An estimated 7,600 persons were killed in rollover crashes, with unrestrained individuals accounting for 69 percent of the casualties.

As a result of a traffic accident, victims and their families may suffer serious injuries as well as financial losses, and the resulting damages have the potential to completely devastate a victim’s life. In South Carolina, car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury. These serious and fatal collisions can result in medical bills, lost wages due to inability to return to work, and long-term agony and suffering. Without the assistance of a Myrtle Beach car accident lawyer, dealing with the aftermath of a serious collision can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
