Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Dealing with a motor vehicle accident can be devastating. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people across the United States die every year due to fatal collisions on our roadways. Here in our states, we see a significant number of fatal collisions occur due to negligence. Leading factors in these crashes include:
- Speeding motorists
- Drivers who are drunk or high
- Drivers who are distracted (texting, eating, etc.)
