INJURED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT?

Talk to an Abbeville, SC Personal Injury Lawyer

Tens of thousands of people are injured each year on the streets and highways of South Carolina. All told, more than 100,000 car accidents occur annually in our state, resulting in significant damage to both individuals and property. If you were hurt in an auto accident caused by another’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation.

HOW DOES SOUTH CAROLINA DETERMINE FAULT?

Drivers in South Carolina are required to operate their vehicles in accord with all state driving laws. If they are negligent in this duty and an automobile accident results, the driver and their insurance company are legally responsible for any damage or injuries that result.

Common causes of automobile accidents include:

  • Driving at an unsafe speed.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Driving while distracted.
  • Failing to properly signal.
  • Ignoring traffic signs or signals.
  • Reckless driving.

Even when an accident is not caused by the negligence of one of the drivers, it is still possible to assign fault. Manufacturers and suppliers could be liable for any defects to their automobile, and the government could be liable for any unsafe roadways under their jurisdiction.
