Car Crashes in South Carolina

According to statistics, a driver’s actions are responsible for nearly 82% of fatal car crashes in South Carolina.
Victims and their families may suffer serious injuries as well as financial losses as a result of car accidents, and the resulting harm has the potential to destroy a victim’s life completely. Car accidents are a leading cause of death and serious injury in South Carolina. Medical bills, lost wages due to inability to return to work, and long-term agony and suffering are all possible outcomes of these serious and fatal collisions. Dealing with the aftermath of a serious collision without the help of a Walterboro personal injury attorney can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
