South Carolina Car Crashes
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 fatal vehicle incidents 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.
Victims and their families may suffer serious injuries as well as financial losses as a result of a catastrophic vehicle accident, and the injuries that accompany them have the potential to completely devastate a victim’s life. Medical expenses, lost pay due to inability to return to work, and long-term agony and suffering may be incurred by car accident victims. Victims and their families may find it difficult to deal with the aftermath of a traffic accident without the assistance of a North Charleston personal injury lawyer.
