Car Accidents in South Carolina

Chapin, SC - Victims Hurt After Car Crash on I-26 near Columbia Ave

Automobile collisions are the leading cause of mortality in the state of South Carolina. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, South Carolina has the highest mortality rate in the country, with 1.88 deaths for every 100 million miles traveled. This is almost twice as high as the average for the rest of the country.

A qualified attorney in South Carolina has two key avenues to pursue in order to secure a successful resolution in a highway vehicle accident claim, despite the fact that there are several possible outcomes for the claim itself. The first choice available is to attempt to reach a satisfactory settlement with the party at blame or with the insurance company representing that party. The second step is to successfully complete the trial and receive a verdict.

It is not an easy task to reach a settlement in a personal injury lawsuit following an automobile accident that occurred on the highway. Insurance companies and defense attorneys will put in a lot of effort to lessen the amount of responsibility that falls on the defendant. They will make every attempt possible, with the end goal of either lowering the amount of a claim or avoiding having to pay it at all. It is absolutely necessary for a lawyer to construct a compelling argument before beginning these conversations.
