Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal collisions are reported every single day in our state. The unfortunate truth is that these accidents often cause significant financial in emotional pain and suffering for families. Families are often forced to deal with tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs, burial costs, and more. In some cases, families are deprived of a source of income. The unfortunate truth is that many of the accidents reported on our roadways are preventable. Leading factors in fatal collisions include:
- Speeding: Excessive speeds reduce the time available for drivers to react to obstacles and increase the severity of collisions.
