High-Speed Collisions in South Carolina
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that negligent driving is to blame for 94 to 96% of all highway auto accidents. The South Carolina crash statistics back up these figures. Speeding is among the most perilous driving behaviors in the state, and reckless drivers are typically to blame for serious collisions. Each year, high-speed accidents claim the lives of many people.
Everyone harmed in an auto accident should get medical help as soon as they are able. After an accident, you need to see a doctor to document your injuries. The period of time it takes for symptoms to appear will vary depending on the type of damage sustained. While some people may show symptoms immediately, others may not show any symptoms for several days or even weeks. The insurance provider might contend that if you wait to seek medical attention, the seriousness of your injuries will be overblown. This can lower the sum required to settle your claim.
When driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol, distracted, or going too fast for the conditions, some drivers make decisions that endanger the lives of other persons on the road. If you have been hurt in an automobile accident, seeking legal counsel will help you determine how to make a claim for fair compensation against the entity responsible for your injuries.
