Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Seeing your loved one lose their life as a result of a fatal accident can be incredibly challenging to deal with. Unfortunately, there are thousands of instances were automobile accidents take place as a result of driver negligence. Leading factors in many of the crashes that are reported across our state include:
Tailgating: Following another vehicle too closely can make it difficult for the driver in front of you to brake safely, which can lead to a rear-end collision.
Speeding: Traveling too fast can make it difficult for you to stop your vehicle in time to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, speeding also increases the likelihood that a driver will lose control of their vehicle and crash into another driver nearby.
Impaired Driving: Driving while under the influence of alcohol can have severe consequences. Unfortunately, nearly 37 percent of all traffic fatalities reported in 2022 involved crashes with impaired drivers.
