Proving fault in South Carolina car crashes

To recover for your medical bills, replace your lost income and compensates you for your pain and suffering, we must prove that the other party caused the accident. This requires basic knowledge of how auto accidents occur and detailed study into the specific facts of your crash. In South Carolina, there are over 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
  • Running stop signs or traffic signals
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driver distraction
  • Following too closely
  • Improper lane change

We often consult with accident experts to pinpoint the cause of the accident, because building a compelling case to hold the at fault driver liable is key!

Other factors that can figure into wrecks include vehicle defects and road conditions. With these types of crashes, a car maker might be liable if a defective part caused the crash; or a city, county or state could be at fault for a poorly designed, constructed or maintained roadway.
