South Carolina Car Accident Attorneys

According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), there were approximately 5,811,000 car accidents in 2008. Of these car accidents, there were 37,261 fatalities and 2,346,000 injuries.  In a single moment, millions of families were disrupted and forced to face costly medical bills and suffer lost wages and pain and suffering.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol reported 270 fatalities in 2011 on South Carolina highways alone and reported 1,000  deaths in South Carolina due to motor vehicle collisions.

According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, in 2008 one person was killed in a DUI accident every 21 hours and one teen driver was involved in a fatal car accident every hour. One pedestrian was killed by an automobile every 3 days.

Contrary to what television lawyers may tell you, motor vehicle accidents can be expensive and complicated. In all likelihood, “getting the cash you need now” really means is that you won’t have the cash you’ll need down the road.
