Anderson County Fatal Accident
Motorcycle accidents have a higher chance of turning into fatal accidents than many others on our roadways. This is mostly due to the fact that motorcyclists have very few protections on our roadways and are more prone to serious harm in the event of an accident. From road rash, broken bones, head trauma, and even fatalities, you never know what an accident will cause.
