Fatal Auto Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal collisions take place far too often. In South Carolina, more than 100 people die every month as a result of accidents on our roadways. In many cases, these accidents are a result of negligence. Far too many people lose their lives as a result of drivers who run red lights, pass stop signs, fail to yield, and engage in other reckless actions.
Unfortunately, even if these accidents take place frequently, it can never prepare you for the impact that a fatal collision will have on your family. Families often face significant financial burdens related to funeral costs and medical expenses.
