Car accidents: 3 underage teens killed in single vehicle crash

In South Carolina, 15-year-old teens are allowed to apply for driving permits for beginners. If a teen has had the beginner's permit for six months and is 15-and-a-half years old or older, he or she can apply for a conditional license. With such a license, the driver may not drive between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. without having a parent or legal guardian in the car. This SC law is meant to reduce teenage deaths in car accidents.

Navigating a complex personal injury claim after a truck accident

A significant number of the fatalities in commercial truck accidents in South Carolina and other states are occupants of passenger vehicles. This underscores the vulnerability of those traveling in cars, SUVs, pickup trucks and other passenger vehicles. Big, rigs and dump trucks can be 20 to 30 times heavier than average sized cars. The chances of suffering catastrophic injuries or worse when you are involved in a collision with a large truck are significant.

Fatal Trucking Accidents: Driver struck while helping another

Whenever a big rig strikes a motorist in a car, that person may have little chance of survival. Trucking accidents are typically devastating, particularly in crashes that involve passenger vehicles. Even if the driver and passengers in a car survive the crash, injuries are likely to be catastrophic.
