Slip-and-fall accidents: Woman sues McDonald's after alleged fall

One of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen, and when they do, they can happen in a split second. In the state of South Carolina, business and property owners have a legal obligation to keep their stores and properties hazard-free. Objects or fluid on floors can quickly lead to slip-and-fall accidents and injuries to visitors. Even things like sidewalks that have fallen under disrepair have the potential to cause great harm. Any accident caused by these dangerous conditions could be grounds for legal action.

Motorcyclists are more likely to die in motor vehicle accidents

Its no secret that motorcycles are more dangerous than most vehicles. Those traveling on motorcycles are totally exposed to the elements and are less protected. South Carolina helmet laws say that motorcyclists over the age of 21 are not required to wear a helmet, so this can mean even less protection in the event of an accident. Out of all motor vehicle accidents, those involving motorcycles are most likely to be fatal.

Summer is the peak time for motor vehicle accidents

Tourists from all over the country flock to South Carolina during the summer months to enjoy the beautiful beaches and the abundance of entertainment available throughout the state. As great as this is for the economy, it can also spur a rise in motor vehicle accidents due to the sudden influx of traffic on roadways. Just going for a short drive can result in a serious accident. Despite stringent, updated traffic laws and safer vehicles, serious and fatal accidents are continuing to rise year after year in South Carolina.

Motor vehicle accidents: Crash leaves motorcyclist dead

The majority of highways and major arteries across the state of South Carolina these days experience high volumes of traffic and are constantly congested. Although these conditions are dangerous for any motorist, they are extremely dangerous for motorcyclists. Motorcyclists are totally exposed to the elements, so any kind of accident involving a motorcycle could quickly turn fatal. In the last few years, deadly motor vehicle accidents have increased dramatically across South Carolina.
