Fighting for South Carolina Injury Victims for Over 50 Years

Florence Car Wreck Attorney

Car Wreck Lawyer Florence SC

Being involved in a car wreck always comes as a shock. That’s true whether you’re able to see an oncoming vehicle or struck blindly without warning. Unfortunately, the odds of getting into a crash are very likely. In fact, auto safety experts estimate that the average driver will be involved in three or four accidents during his or her lifetime.

The good news is that most car wrecks are minor and result in property damage only. But thousands of more serious auto accidents cause injuries and deaths in South Carolina each year. Once the initial shock of the wreck wears off, it’s time to think about what happens next.

You may be eligible to seek compensation for medical expenses and other losses from the party responsible for the car wreck. But it’s important to act quickly. Insurance companies may try to pressure you into a fast settlement that is likely far less than what you deserve. An accident lawyer can protect your rights so that you are not taken advantage of during such a stressful time.

Common Causes of South Carolina Car Wrecks

There has been a consistent uptick in car wrecks overall in South Carolina in recent years. That increase includes both fatal and injury crashes. Every accident is different based on the specific facts of the case. But many South Carolina wrecks, from rear-end, head-on, to t-bone accidents, share several common causes:

  • Driver negligence – Motorists who speed, run red lights, make unsafe lane changes or engage in other reckless behaviors behind the wheel may be held liable for injuries if they cause a car wreck. 
  • Drunk or drugged drivingAlcohol and drugs (even legal medications) can lead to deadly accidents when an impaired driver is on the road. Although the drunk or drug-impaired driver is the typical defendant in these types of cases, it is possible that other factors contributed to the crash. Our experienced car wreck lawyers can help identify any other potentially liable parties, such as a bar that overserved a customer.
  • Drowsy drivingFatigue is a common cause of accidents, especially those involving commercial truck drivers. Truckers are on the roads for long stretches of time. Violating regulations regarding mandatory rest periods may lead to serious crashes. In a wreck between an 18-wheeler and a passenger car, the occupants of the car almost always fare worse.
  • Defective road conditionsPoorly maintained roads can cause accidents for even the most responsible drivers.
  • Faulty vehicle equipmentDefective tires, brakes or other automotive parts may lead to lawsuits against the designers, manufacturers or distributors of those products.

Our Lawyers Handle a Wide Range of Car Wreck Claims

Car accident injuries vary greatly in severity. Even seemingly minor injuries can be expensive and take time to heal properly. Catastrophic trauma can result in millions of dollars in lifetime costs. Whether you have suffered soft tissue damage, a traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones, cuts, neck damage or any other types of injury, it’s important to seek prompt medical attention and follow doctor’s orders during the healing process to protect your rights to compensation.

Sometimes the injuries are emotional. A car wreck can result in the onset of mental health conditions such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), both of which can be disabling and prevent victims from returning to the same quality of life they had before the accident.

In South Carolina, car wreck victims may be awarded these types of damages:

  • Economic damages – Compensation for direct financial expenses such as medical bills, lost earnings, rehabilitation costs, medical equipment, nursing care, anticipated future medical costs, lost earning capacity and vehicle repairs. If the wreck was fatal, funeral and burial expenses would also be compensable as economic damages. 
  • Noneconomic damages – Money recovered for non-financial losses such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship, physical impairment, disfigurement, emotional distress, humiliation and injury to reputation.
  • Punitive damages – In certain car wrecks, the misconduct is so great that the court may award the injured party punitive damages to punish the liable party for their recklessness. This is decided on a case-by-case basis.

We will investigate every facet of the case to ensure that the insurance companies have a full understanding of the impact of the wreck. We consult with a wide variety of experts, including doctors, vocational specialists, mechanics, accident reconstructionists and financial planners to support your claim for compensation.
