High-Speed Collisions in South Carolina
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that driver error causes 94 to 96% of all highway auto accidents. South Carolina crash data supports these figures. Speeding is one of the most prevalent types of reckless driving in the state, and most car accidents were caused by negligent drivers. High-speed collisions claim the lives of thousands of people each year.
You should first seek medical attention after an automobile accident. Then you must consult a lawyer who has already handled legal matters in South Carolina. Make the first call to your insurance provider after securing legal counsel. If you want to make sure that your legal rights are respected, you should seriously consider hiring legal representation on your own behalf. In an effort to take advantage of you, a large insurance company might use its size and influence to persuade you to accept a less favorable settlement offer.
You might not completely understand how claims are handled or what to expect as your case develops because of the severity of your injuries. Due to your injuries, it might already be difficult for you to perform your daily responsibilities. You should be ready to deal with challenges that you are underprepared to handle. Because insurance companies deal with injury situations frequently, they may exploit your inexperience. They will utilize their vast knowledge to make you an offer for your claim that is as low as possible in order to protect their own interests.
