Fatal Auto Accidents in South Carolina
Statistics provided by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety show that more than 1035 people lost their lives as a result of fatal collisions in 2022 in South Carolina. Although this number accounts for a 12 percent decline in traffic fatalities since 2021, there continues to be a significant number of innocent people losing their lives as a result of car accidents.
Far too often, these accidents are a result of negligent and reckless drivers. Drivers who are speeding, under the influence, distracted, or otherwise negligent while operating their vehicles crash into others quite often and cause devastating consequences. Regrettably, many innocent people die as a result of the injuries they suffer in motor vehicle accidents that are completely preventable.
