Motor vehicle accidents on the rise as tourist season approaches

South Carolina is known for its many beautiful and pristine beaches. Thousands of people across the country love to vacation along the South Carolina shoreline during the warmer months. The arrival of the summer tourist season means roadways across the state will become even more crowded. Interstate highways that intersect the state can quickly become congested from the sudden influx of traffic as vacationers flock to the coast. Unfortunate bi-products of the increased out-of-state traffic are motor vehicle accidents.

Slip and fall accidents can happen when least expected

Business and property owners in the state of South Carolina are legally obligated to keep their property and business safe for all those who legally visit. Considering the financial challenges present for business owners in today's economy, repairs or maintenance on property may sometimes be delayed in an attempt to save a few dollars. Unfortunately, these unsafe conditions have the potential to cause injury to visitors and patrons, so property owners actually stand to lose more money in the long run in the form of lawsuits. It may be no coincidence that slip and fall accidents are happening more frequently across the country.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents remain high in South Carolina

Its no secret that people are flocking to South Carolina to take advantage of the great climate and wonderful opportunities across the state. Currently, there are almost four million licensed drivers here. This number continues to climb year after year, which means roadways are more crowded than ever before. With so many vehicles sharing the roadways, motor vehicle accidents will inevitably happen. Tragically, a shocking number of these accidents have proven to be fatal so far in 2018.

Most drivers will experience motor vehicle accidents

When a person gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, being involved in a crash is the furthest thing from his or her mind. No one gets behind the wheel expecting to crash. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in modern-day America. Statistics say that most drivers will be involved in an accident at some point. These days, just getting from point A to point B can be a risky endeavor, especially on crowded South Carolina roadways.
