Over Memorial Day weekend, the South Carolina Department of Public Safety reported 12 deaths on our South Carolina highways. This would account for the deadliest Memorial Day weekend in the last three years, compared to the eight fatalities which occurred during both 2011 and 2012.
So far, out of the 185 individuals that have died across our South Carolina highways in 2013, 113 of these people were not wearing a seatbelt. These numbers demonstrate how important wearing a seatbelt actually is and the reason for the recent national Click It or Ticket weekend. Not to mention, throughout the entire year of 2009, there was a total of 27 deaths throughout the entire city of Savannah. Many of which may have been avoided by these individuals wearing a seatbelt.
If you or a family member has been injured in an automobile accident, our attorneys believe that the victim may be eligible to receive compensation for their losses and damages. Not to mention, our attorneys all operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning we will not charge you for our services unless a favorable verdict or settlement has been achieved.
