Auto Accidents in South Carolina
Driving a car is one of the most dangerous activities we engage in on a daily basis. In 2018, South Carolina had the highest per capita rate of fatal collisions in the country. Automobiles, trucks, and SUVs accounted for roughly 65% of all traffic fatalities in the state that year, with 1,037 fatalities. Other motorists are responsible for roughly 82% of all fatal crashes in South Carolina, according to data.
Auto accidents can leave victims and their families with serious injuries as well as financial losses. The resulting harm has the potential to destroy the victim’s life completely. In South Carolina, car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury. The state’s major cities’ congested streets set the stage for a major or life-threatening collision. 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. Dealing with the aftermath of a collision without the help of a Myrtle Beach personal injury lawyer can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
