Nearly everyone has been affected by an auto accident, whether directly or indirectly. Such accidents range from relatively minor fender benders to horrific multiple-vehicle accidents resulting in the death of a driver, passenger, or pedestrian. They are reported daily on news media across the state and the country, showing the devastating effects they cause to individuals and their families.

What the Numbers Reveal about Vehicle Wrecks
The Department of Public Safety’s Traffic Collision Fact Book reports that one out of every 10 drivers in South Carolina is involved in a traffic crash every year. One out of three of these accidents results in injury. The fact book further reveals that an average of 30 people died in traffic collisions every week during those years as opposed to 11 murders. Furthermore, traffic crash injuries far outweigh injuries resulting from aggravated assaults. These statistics reveal the enormity of the problem we all face every time we get behind the wheel of our cars.
Traffic crashes are caused in many ways but most boil down to human error. Those errors can be the result of driving while under the influence, driving while texting or using a cell phone, failing to follow traffic laws, speeding, or merely through failing to pay attention. They result in medical bills, loss of work, pain and suffering, or the loss of a loved one for unlucky victims. In the wake of such an accident, you will need to seek compensation through an insurance claim, a process which is not guaranteed to give you a fair result. That is why it’s to your advantage to turn to a personal injury law firm like Howell & Christmas that has the experience and commitment you need.
