An American is Killed During a Preventable Occurrence
Our David W. Martin Accident & Injury Lawyers in South Carolina represent individuals and families throughout the state who have suffered unimaginable, catastrophic injuries and the losses of loved ones that could have been prevented.
Unfortunately, these preventable injuries and fatalities occur more often than most think.
According to the National Safety Council, an American is killed accidentally every three minutes, by a drug overdose, a motor vehicle crash, a fall, a drowning, a choking incident, or another preventable occurrence.
Our dedicated South Carolina personal injury lawyers know that when negligence is a factor, safety is no longer the priority. When this is true, people are going to get hurt or killed.
How is Negligence Impacting South Carolina Residents?
In South Carolina and across the nation, preventable occurrences are typically only recognized as such once all the facts are pieced together.
For instance, if there is an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, the injured person or parties only know the crash could have been prevented once they find out the cause. In this example, this could mean the at-fault driver failed a sobriety/breathalyzer and was arrested at the scene, revealing negligence was a clear factor.
Unfortunately, South Carolina ranks 7th in the nation — among the worst of all 50 states — in drunk driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities.
Other preventable accidents that can lead to significant injuries and fatalities in South Carolina may include, but are not limited to:
- Bicycle Accidents
- Boat Accidents
- Childcare & Daycare Accidents
- Dog Bites and Attacks
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle Accidents
