Speeding-Related Accidents in South Carolina

Clinton, SC - Injuries Reported in Collision on I-26 near I-385

Speeding is a common factor in serious car accidents across the state, and the speed of a vehicle can greatly impact the severity of a resulting collision. Nearly one-third of reported traffic fatalities in the past 30 years have involved speeding motorists. Speeding delays reaction time and makes drivers more likely to cause a serious crash. 

Although there are several possible outcomes for the claim itself, an experienced attorney in South Carolina has two basic options for obtaining a good settlement in a case involving a highway car. The initial course of action is to attempt to reach a fair settlement with the negligent party or the insurance provider acting on their behalf. To achieve a verdict in the second phase, the trial must be effectively finished.

After a vehicle accident that occurred on the highway, reaching a settlement in a personal injury lawsuit is not an easy task. Defense attorneys and insurance providers will do every effort to lessen the defendant’s culpability. They will make every attempt to either minimize a claim’s scope or avoid having to pay it at all. A lawyer must unquestionably put together a compelling argument before beginning these negotiations.
