Fatal Car Crashes in South Carolina
In 2021, there was a car accident in South Carolina every 3.7 minutes. Every nine minutes, a car accident injured someone. Statistics show that South Carolina has a higher likelihood of vehicle accidents than other states.
Any family may experience stress when a relative or close friend passes away. The pain of losing a loved one is made worse by the knowledge that their passing resulted from the negligence, recklessness, or malice of another person. When a series of bad events and the loss of a loved one was caused by the acts of a third party, the pain is only made worse.
A wrongful death case may be filed in South Carolina if someone dies as a consequence of another party’s carelessness, wrongdoing, or fault. The victim’s wrongful death case may proceed as if she or he were still alive. Typically, the wrongful death component of the case is a part of a larger lawsuit that also alleges that the defendant was negligent in creating the party’s injuries.
