Pursuing justice following fatal South Carolina car accidents

When injuries occur in South Carolina vehicle collisions caused by driver negligence, those affected may pursue justice by filing personal injury claims in civil court. In fatal car accidents, those who die are sometimes the same ones who caused the collisions to occur. When this is the case, a recovering injured victim may file a claim against a decedent's estate.

Whether that will occur following a recent tragedy remains to be seen. The accident involved a single vehicle that a witness later said sounded like a freight train when it smashed into an embankment. At some point, just before the crash, the driver reportedly lost control of his steering.

The car wound up crashing through a fence and several residential yards. Upon impact, a woman who was traveling as a passenger in the vehicle became entrapped. Rescue workers worked as a team to try to extricate her from the car. One worker said he kept hoping the vehicle wouldn't burst into flames before they could get her out.

The driver of the car was not wearing a seat belt when he wrecked. He was unable to survive his injuries. Thankfully, the woman was successfully removed from the vehicle and was flown by helicopter to a nearby medical facility. South Carolina car accidents that result in severe injuries often lead to partial or full permanent disabilities. The medical treatment and prolonged assisted care necessary in such situations is quite expensive, and this is one of the main reasons many people choose to file injury claims to seek compensation for damages.
