You shouldn’t suffer because of the negligent or careless acts of another driver. The responsible party should be held accountable for the damage he or she caused you.
After a car accident, it is critical to know your legal rights in the state where the accident took place. In the State of South Carolina, fault regulations apply to car and other auto accidents. This means a car accident victim always has the legal right to make a claim against the liable driver responsible for the accident. The liable driver is obligated to pay compensation, which are typically paid by his or her liability automobile insurance policy. Since an insurance company is involved, other attorneys will be looking at your case. It is their incentive to minimize their payout, which means they will try to lowball you. The Carolina Law Group will make sure what you get what you are legally entitled to. It is almost never a good idea to go up against an insurance company and their team of defense lawyers by yourself; let The Carolina Law Group go to battle for you.

At The Carolina Law Group, our knowledgeable attorneys know how much is at stake when you have been involved in a car accident. We will put our years of combined litigation and processing experience to work to ensure you are fully compensated for all of your accident losses at the fullest extent of the law.
To receive compensation for car accident injuries from another individual, you have to prove the other driver is liable and at fault. When filing your claim, consider whether the other driver broke any driving regulations and norms — that is, did they violate any “rules of the road.” If they have broken any traffic laws, that driver can be automatically considered liable for an accident that resulted from their violation, and, therefore, they should have to compensate you for your losses.
A driver may also be considered liable for a car accident if they behaved more “carelessly than any reasonable driver would have.” Obviously, there is some ambiguity in this, resulting in the final determinant of what is “reasonable” being determined by the jury if the case requires going to a jury trial. Determining the liability issues is vital to assessing whether you can make a car accident claim. The Carolina Law Group has years of experience successfully doing this and are confident in being able to appropriately determine this in your unique case.
An experienced South Carolina car accident lawyer at The Carolina Law Group can assist you in gathering the evidence you need to prove who was liable for your car accident. The sooner you get in touch with us, the stronger the case we can build for you and the better your chances of getting the compensation you deserve and are entitled to.
Types of Vehicle Accidents in South Carolina
Car accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone; we all think it cannot happen to us, but it can.

We also handle the following types of motor vehicle accidents:
Each kind of car accident brings with it its own specific difficulties and risks. For example, in chain reaction car accidents, there are multiple cars involved so it can be challenging to determine which driver was to blame and, thus, who is liable. Hit-and-run accidents can leave you without a liable party to make a claim against. You might be obligated to seek coverage from your own uninsured/underinsured motorist protection if your policy covers these kinds of damages. Truck accidents are also quite different and usually require consideration of extensive Federal Motor Carrier regulations. The Carolina Law Group has also handled numerous cases involving clients who were injured by drunk drivers who were driving under the influence and charged with DUI.

Compensation from a Car Accident Claim
The compensation you may receive from a car accident case is usually dependent upon how badly you are hurt, but may also involve other aggravating factors such as whether you are able to continue to work, the particular circumstances surrounding the accident and the other driver(s) involved, and the types and amounts of insurance coverage available. You could be able to get compensation to pay for:
You could potentially recover compensation for the pain and suffering you go through, also sometimes referred to as emotional distress, mental anguish, psychological harm and physical pain and discomfort.
In fatal car accidents, wrongful death damages are also available to certain relatives of the deceased. In many of these cases, there may also be a survival action available to recover compensation for the pain and suffering endured prior to death.
Compensation can be obtained through either negotiating a settlement with the insurer or through litigation in court. Insurance companies will almost always will look after their bottom line before anything else. Dealing with the insurance company can be incredibly stressful and often they will have a team of adjusters and attorneys working to deny your case or minimize your recovery, so let us handle them for you.
