According to statistics, other motorists are responsible for nearly 82% of all fatal crashes in South Carolina.

The grief 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 knowledgeable Pickens wrongful death lawyer.
