Fewer Fatalities Expected in 2010

Wis10 reported that the South Carolina Department of Transportation expects fewer fatalities on the highway for 2010. According to DOT statistics, there have been 755 people killed on South Carolina roads this year. In 2009, there were a total of 851 deaths.

The DOT contributes this lower number to efforts made by the department to improve safety. Additionally, the DOT indicated that more people are wearing seatbelts and car seats regularly.

According to the report, this is only the second time in 47 years  that the number of fatalities has been below 800, so please buckle up this holiday season and take care.

Sumter County Rollover Leaves Four Teenagers Injured

Four teenagers were hospitalized after they were involved in a single-car accident on Kolb Road in Sumter County.

WIStv.com reports that the accident happened earlier this week at approximately 8:40 p.m., after 17-year-old Jonathan Elmore flipped his vehicle. Elmore was ejected from the car along with three passengers – 16-year-old Christopher Ardis, 16-year-old Evan Davenport and 19-year-old Zachary Peavy.

Ardis has been released from the hospital; Elmore is listed in stable condition. Peavy and Davenport are both listed in serious condition. Unfortunately, none of the boys were wearing seatbelts.

Automobile accidents, commonly called car wrecks, occur on a daily basis in South Carolina and nationwide.

Even minor accidents can lead to severe injuries and high costs of repair.

As a result, automobile accident cases are not simple. Many people, including attorneys, regard auto accident cases run-of-the-mill. That is rarely true. For example, many of the worst drivers on the road are often not insured, or do not carry enough insurance to pay for all the damage and injury caused in an accident.

What many people do not know is that your own insurance policy may provide protection if you are injured in a car accident that is not your fault. This may be true even if you do not have comprehensive or collision insurance. However, it takes an experienced attorney familiar with insurance policies to help you analyze the “legal-ese” to make this determination. The South Carolina Automobile Accident Attorneys at Strom Law Firm, LLC will provide you with a no-cost, no-obligation consultation to discuss the facts of your case.

Even injuries that do not appear serious initially may cause permanent suffering for life. Our South Carolina wreck attorneys and support staff are experienced in this regard and can help ensure you are compensated for all your injuries, current and future.
