Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
Every single day, innocent people are killed as a result of vehicle collisions in our states. Unfortunately, many of the accidents are completely preventable. We see innocent people die daily due to the negligent and reckless actions of others. Leading factors in fatal collisions include:
- Failure to yield: when drivers do not yield to other motorists, they can cause devastating accidents. Failure to yield collisions often take place at intersections or when drivers are switching lanes recklessly.
- Inexperienced drivers: when drivers are not experienced in operating their vehicles on busy roadways, it can lead to devastating accidents.
- Tailgating: when drivers travel too close to others, it can increase the likelihood of a severe accident taking place. Tailgating can result in drivers being unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.
- Poor road conditions: poor road conditions are a common culprit in many of the accidents across our state. There are many accidents that take place as a result of broken roads, inadequate signs, and obstructions.
