Car Accidents Are Extremely Common & Dangerous
On an average day, an auto accident occurs every five seconds on South Carolina’s roadways. While many of these accidents are minor fender benders, an unfortunate percentage are serious enough to result in severe injuries to those involved. An even more unfortunate statistic is that many of these accidents could have been avoided; they are caused by carelessness, negligence, drunk driving, excessive speed, or simple human error. In South Carolina alone, over 400 people are killed each year because of a DUI accident.
Other sobering statistics related to car crashes include:
- In the United States, 70% of car accidents are caused by alcohol or speeding
- At least 9 people are killed daily by distracted drivers
- 6% of all car crashes are fatal
- Among all developed countries, the U.S. has the largest number of annual car accident fatalities in the world
No matter what the situation, the period following a car wreck can be full of pain, confusion, anger, and frustration. Victims and their loved ones have a lot to deal with, including potentially worrying about how they will pay for medical bills and property damage. There are also the pressing matters of lost income and emotional trauma. No one should have to deal with these things alone.
Our Charleston car accident lawyers are trained and experienced in representing those who have been injured in automobile crashes across South Carolina. We know how difficult it can be for car crash victims to get back on their feet after being injured, and we know how important it is for you to get justice and fair compensation so you can move on with life.
Liability Laws After a Car Accident
South Carolina is a “fault state” when it comes to liability after a car accident. This means that the party responsible for an accident is the one who pays damages. However, most car accidents have more than one party at fault, if even by a very small percentage. In these cases, South Carolina follows a “comparative fault” rule. This means that even a party who is partially responsible for an accident can file a claim as long as the other party is more at fault for the accident.
In these types of claims the percentage of responsibility a defendant is found to be responsible for will also be deducted from their overall compensation awarded to them. For example, if you are found to be 15% at fault for the accident that caused your injuries your total compensation awarded to you by the court will also be reduced by 15%. Car accident law in South Carolina can be confusing and complex which is why our firm is here to guide you through the process while fighting for the compensation you deserve.
