Reckless Driving Accidents in South Carolina

Westminster, SC - Victims Injured in Collision on US-123 near SC-11

According to the S.C. Highway Safety Plan, negligent or reckless drivers were to blame for two-thirds of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in South Carolina between 2014 and 2018. The 694 driver fatalities in 2018 were a 30.7% increase from the 531 fatalities in 2014 and 9.16% more than the annual average from 2014 to 2018. If a reckless driver caused your injuries, they may be held liable for any resulting damages. 

It is possible that you already feel overburdened if you were harmed in a vehicle accident in South Carolina. You may be uneasy and concerned about the current state of affairs due to your own health, the response of the authorities, the detrimental effects on your family, and the insurer of the driver who was at fault. You may surely feel afraid and powerless as a result of all of these and other problems that arise during the course of your claim.

Medical care for injuries sustained in auto accidents is notoriously expensive. The expense of fixing a broken leg or another limb could be several thousand dollars. Complicated fracture surgeries could cost tens of thousands of dollars. For those harmed in traffic accidents, basic expenses like medicine and therapy are typically more expensive. The results can be severe when the monetary costs of a single accident are added to the pay loss caused by having to take time off work to recover.
