Distracted Driving Crashes in South Carolina

Anderson, SC - Injury-Causing Collision at Main St & Shockley Ferry Rd

This occurs when the driver of the automobile is paying attention to something other than driving. Distraction impairs one’s ability to drive safely, which commonly leads to head-on crashes. Numerous car accidents are frequently caused by this each year. In 2019, distracted driving was a factor in 18,836 accidents, according to South Carolina authorities.

Even with the increased safety precautions currently used by automakers, a vehicle collision is still an unpleasant and occasionally tragic event. Few people are able to leave such risky circumstances unhurt, thus recovery generally takes weeks, months, or even years. Most victims of serious accidents experience long-term physical and psychological changes.

The accident victims may still be allowed to claim financial compensation for their injuries and any suffering that was a direct result of the occurrence, even if the driver who caused the collision had no purpose to harm anybody else. Although there are many various things that might lead to an auto accident, the great majority of them are completely avoidable. Usually, one or more drivers’ negligence causes an accident on the road.
