Choose an Aggressive Auto Accident Attorney in South Carolina to Represent You

Highly responsive South Carolina lawyer is driven to deliver results

In recent years, South Carolina has developed a terrible reputation as home to careless drivers and speeders and as the state with the highest level of fatalities per million miles driven. At the Law Offices of David L. Hood, we hope you are safe on the road, but if a negligent driver causes an accident that injures you, we are here to help. For more than 25 years, we have provided skilled and determined legal representation in auto accident cases. We take a hands-on approach, with personalized service that builds confidence and peace of mind, which is exactly what you need after a traumatic experience. However, throughout the legal process, we focus intensely on achieving the best outcome possible. That means taking decisive steps to maximize the compensation you recover.

Proving causation in South Carolina car crashes

To make a case for a recovery that pays your medical bills, replaces your lost income and compensates you for your pain and suffering, you must prove that another party is responsible for the accident. This requires basic knowledge of what causes auto accidents generally and detailed investigation into the specific circumstances of your crash. In South Carolina, there are about 40,000 injury collisions and more than 900 fatal crashes each year. The leading cause of these crashes is driver error, which most often means:

  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Disregarding stop signs or traffic signals
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driver distraction or inattention
  • Following too closely
  • Improper lane change

We often consult with accident reconstruction experts to pinpoint the cause of the accident and build a compelling case to hold an at-fault driver accountable.

Nondriver factors that figure into accidents include vehicle defects and roadway conditions. With these types of crashes, an automobile manufacturer might be liable if a defective part caused the crash, or a government entity could be liable for a poorly designed, constructed or maintained roadway.

Experience with various accident scenarios

When selecting an attorney to manage your case, it’s important to find someone who has experience with your type of accident and injury. We have had success resolving cases of serious, even catastrophic injuries and wrongful death arising from:

  • Head-on collisions
