Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Fatal accidents can be incredibly devastating to deal with. The unfortunate truth is that more than 1100 people died as a result of vehicle collisions on our roadways in 2022. Even though we have strict laws in place to protect drivers and passengers, innocent people continue to lose their lives at an alarming rate.
Far too often, fatal automobile accidents take place in our roadways due to drivers who are speeding. When drivers are traveling too fast for road conditions, it can result in drivers entering into opposite lanes in colliding with other vehicles. We also see many accidents take place as a result of impairment. When drivers are under the influence, they are unable to make responsible decisions. In addition, a significant number of fatal collisions take place due to reckless driver actions, drivers who fail to yield, and drivers who weave in and out of traffic.
