What are common causes of South Carolina auto and truck accidents?
South Carolina roads can be dangerous. One reason why is because South Carolina is one of only two states with no statewide distracted driving laws on the books, according to www.distraction.gov. It's still legal for any driver to text behind the wheel. A driver who may be on US 21 in Beaufort, headed to the Sea Islands, could get seriously injured or killed by someone who's paying more attention to their cell phone than the road. A relaxing vacation at Hilton Head can quickly turn into a nightmare if a drunk driver is sharing the road. Fortunately, South Carolina adopted "Emma's Law," which requires more people convicted of drunk driving to install a DUI lock on their vehicle.
Although it only takes a single moment of carelessness to cause a serious car, truck or motorcycle crash, many accidents have serious long-term consequences for injury victims. Any type of traffic accident caused by a drunk driver could result in staggering medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other significant financial and emotional losses. A driver might have been programming a GPS in the moments before causing a serious pedestrian accident. Our attorneys understand that so many accidents are preventable. While the other driver might not have meant to cause harm, the consequences of the behavior can be devastating. Many auto accident claims involve the following factors:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
In other instances, drivers and other parties might share fault for an auto or truck accident. This can be the case in truck accident claims involving negligent vehicle maintenance or other forms of truck company negligence. A vehicle may even be manufactured with defective safety components such as brakes, airbags or seatbelts. No matter the cause of an accident due to negligence, it's critical to have an aggressive Beaufort lawyer on your side, fighting to protect your rights.
Can I file a lawsuit after a South Carolina auto or truck accident?
You have rights if you've been injured or a loved one was killed in an auto or truck accident. In South Carolina, you may pursue a claim or lawsuit against the negligent party you believe caused the crash. Without the aid of an experienced attorney, you might find that the person or company that caused your accident denies any wrongdoing. Their insurance company might offer you a "lowball" settlement that barely covers the cost of your injuries. Even worse, they might even deny your claim altogether.
Statutes of Limitations apply in many situations, which means you may only have a short window of time to file a claim. If you wait too long, you may lose your right to pursue benefits.
