Even the most cautious drivers can sustain injuries in serious auto accidents. Across South Carolina, driver negligence is the main cause of auto accidents. It is illegal and reckless to drive in a way that puts others at risk. When a car accident costs you money or harms you physically because of someone else’s negligence, selfishness, or even just an honest mistake, you may be due compensation.
