One of the most dangerous activities we engage in on a daily basis is driving a car. South Carolina had the country’s highest per capita rate of fatal crashes in 2018. With 1,037 fatalities, automobiles, trucks, and SUVs accounted for nearly 65% of all fatal vehicle collisions in the state that year. According to statistics, other motorists are responsible for nearly 82% of all fatal crashes in South Carolina.

The pain of losing a loved one, particularly if the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, can be overwhelming, and those close to the victim will almost certainly suffer as well.
