How safe are South Carolina freeways?

If you drive on the busy freeways that run through Greenville, South Carolina, then you know they can be quite hazardous. Greenville is a busy hub where interstate freeways I-385, I-85 and I-185 bring motor vehicles and 18-wheeler trucks into close contact 24 hours a day. 

Navigating the interstate freeways can be dangerous, especially with long-haul truckers, poor road conditions and distracted drivers. Serious injury can result. Keeping yourself safe is important. 

Hazardous road conditions more dangerous than you might think

It can be difficult to make a direct connection between any particular type of road condition and a resulting death or serious injury. The Greenville News reported that only 12 of the 936 fatal accidents in 2016 had road conditions as a contributing factor.

Nevertheless, road conditions do indeed play a role in many serious vehicle accidents. If you suffered an injury in a motor vehicle accident as a result of road conditions, you may be able to take possible legal action. Negligence on the part of the city or a construction company may be a factor, and compensation could be a possibility.

Vehicle-to-vehicle crashes still biggest concern

Obviously, your biggest risk on Greenville's busy interstate freeways is still the close proximity to other vehicles. Interstate truckers pass through constantly and have the potential to create seriously catastrophic crashes and multi-vehicle pileups.

It can be challenging to reconstruct the circumstances surrounding a freeway accident, but that reconstruction is a vital piece of the puzzle when you pursue legal action. Active investigation is essential in terms of presenting strong evidence in court.

Investigating your car accident is something you are likely not trained to do. Skilled vehicle accident attorneys know what steps to take to investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident. Your attorneys can also assist with insurance claims and seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. It may be in your best interest to consult with an attorney as a first step to determining whether you have the basics for bringing a case to court.
