South Carolina Car Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, South Carolina has one of the highest rates of highway deaths in the country. Between 2000 and 2016, residents of the state drove 19% more miles on the state’s highways than in the previous decade. According to the most recent accident statistics, one out of every 18 drivers in the state was involved in a car accident in 2018.
Auto accidents can result in serious injuries as well as financial losses for victims and their families. The resulting harm has the potential to completely devastate the victim’s life. Car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury in South Carolina. Congested streets in the state’s major cities set the stage for a major or life-threatening collision. Medical bills, lost wages due to inability to return to work, and long-term agony and suffering can all be incurred as a result of these serious and fatal collisions. Without the assistance of a North Charleston personal injury lawyer, dealing with the aftermath of a collision can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
