How Car Accidents Happen
Often, negligence is involved. A careless driver may have contributed to your accident by:
- Texting while driving
- Not paying attention
- Driving while intoxicated
- Not signaling
- Running a red light
Because South Carolina is a fault-based state for auto insurance, it matters who was at fault. If someone else was more than 50 percent at fault in contributing to the accident, you can pursue compensation from their insurance. Our lawyers can help ensure that you get the full recovery you need in a timely manner.
What To Do After A Car Accident
Car and truck accidents can be very disorienting. Your top priority in the aftermath of an accident is to seek medical care. Getting a swift diagnosis and following up on treatment are critical steps, both for your health and for your legal case.
With any accident or injury, it’s also important to gather any evidence you can. That may mean taking pictures at the accident scene, if you are able, and keeping detailed notes and records. If there were witnesses, make sure to get their contact information.
Additionally, contact a lawyer sooner rather than later. Our team can take the right steps to gather and preserve evidence – for example, gathering witness testimony, obtaining security camera footage, getting police reports, etc. The earlier we can get involved, the better we can help you.
