Car Accidents in South Carolina
According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, a traffic collision occurs every 3.7 minutes, one that causes injuries every 13.3 minutes, and one that results in fatalities every 9.5 hours. Each year, there are more than 60,000 injuries and roughly 1,000 traffic-related fatalities in South Carolina.
Justice has not been done when those who were not at fault for a serious traffic accident must deal with the consequences. This is particularly true considering how many of these collisions would have been avoided if motorists had just been more cautious. Traffic laws and safety regulations help to ensure that those at fault are also held accountable, even though not every driver takes their duty to the road as seriously as they should.
After a collision, you should seek medical attention and speak with a lawyer who is familiar with South Carolina’s legal system before contacting the insurance provider. You should think about getting legal counsel if you want to ensure that your legal rights are protected. Your settlement offer could be reduced by a large insurance company in an effort to take advantage of you.
