Fatal accidents occur far too often in South Carolina. Unfortunately, many of these accidents involve semi-trucks and large commercial vehicles. There are many instances where these crashes take place in situations that are entirely preventable. Unfortunately, innocent people continue to suffer fatal accidents due to drivers who engage in reckless actions. Some of the most common causes of fatal collisions that we see in South Carolina include:
When drivers engage in these and other acts of negligence while in control of their vehicles, they continue to cause severe accidents every single day in our state. When innocent people end up passing away as a result of their injuries, their families must reach out to a commercial vehicle accident lawyer right away. Your attorney will be able to demonstrate the factors that led to the accident taking place and take legal action against those who are responsible.
