Myrtle Beach, SC - Update: Cynthia Allaire Dies in Crash at US-17 & Azalea Lakes Blvd

Traffic intersections have become significantly more dangerous in recent years, according to the most recent data. Even traffic signals can only prevent a fatal accident to a limited degree. Red-light runners are responsible for hundreds of deaths each year in the United States, according to national statistics. Roadway crossing collisions are extremely dangerous, accounting for more than half of all serious injuries and one-fourth of all road fatalities.

The pain of losing a loved one can be overwhelming, especially if the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, and those close to the victim will almost certainly suffer as well. Wrongful death cases frequently result in significant financial losses for families, both now and in the future, necessitating the help of a skilled Myrtle Beach wrongful death lawyer. Unfortunately, many families are unaware that if a family member dies, they may be entitled to compensation. The deceased’s losses include medical bills, burial costs, and lost future earnings, to name a few. Families who have lost a loved one frequently do not know where to turn for assistance in obtaining the compensation to which they are entitled.
