Driver Killed in an Accident in Townville, Anderson County

A driver lost his life on Monday night after he was involved in a wreck on SC 243 near Townville. 

According to South Carolina Highway Patrol, the driver of a 2001 Pontiac was driving south on SC 243 when the car took off of the left side of the roadway and collided with a guardrail, several trees and overturned in a canal.  

Troopers said the driver did not wear a seat belt when the accident happened. The collision was so forceful that it ejected him from the vehicle.

According to troopers, the driver was transported to AnMed Health, where he later died.

The Anderson County Coroner’s Office released the identity of the victim – thirty-nine-year-old Jeremiah Antoine Backmon from Elloree, South Carolina.

If you were injured in an accident, besides the medical help, you are going to need a skilled lawyer. The process of filing a lawsuit and seeking a claim against the insurance company of the liable party is not the easiest one.

Your car accident attorney would review your case and would help you in the further process. 

The claim would help you cover your medical fees and lost wages. However, going on your own against big insurance companies may mean that you could end up with a lower settlement. The insurance companies have excellent lawyers and would not think twice before offering you a lower claim or denying it (if they find enough reasons).
