Car Accidents: Common Causes & Fatalities
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), 38,824 people died in car accidents in the United States in 2020. That was a 7% increase over the previous year of 2019. In South Carolina, 1,064 deaths occurred in 2020 auto accidents. These statistics illustrate the serious problem of motor vehicle crashes in our nation.
Common causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving, such as texting, talking on a cell phone, and more
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Violating other traffic laws
- Defective products, such as defective tires, brakes, airbags, and more
- Road design flaws
- Road maintenance neglect
- Road rage
The main cause of personal injury claims is car accidents. Victims of negligence and wrongdoing in these events can suffer injuries ranging from severe whiplash to sprains, torn ligaments, herniated discs, concussions, internal injuries, multiple broken bones, and catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries.
Catastrophic injuries change one’s life forever due to permanent disability. They result in physical and financial loss long into the future, involving loss of income, loss of earning capacity, ongoing medical expenses, and, in some cases, the need for personal assistance from a caretaker or home/vehicle renovations to accommodate the loss of physical capacity.
What You Should Do After a Car Accident
The steps you take after a car accident are important in protecting your legal rights.
- Getting medical attention: Even if you believe you may not be injured, you should see a doctor. Injuries commonly do not fully manifest for hours or days later. A doctor can assess and advise you on the matter. All medical appointments and treatments will then be documented, providing evidence of injuries.
- Calling the police: You will need a police report verifying the accident. This report is required under South Carolina law and provides further supporting evidence. The police officers can investigate how and why the crash occurred.
- Exchange information with the other driver: Do not admit fault or apologize. Get this driver’s personal identification, license number, vehicle information, and insurance company.
- Take pictures of the accident scene, including skid marks, surroundings, both vehicles, and your injuries.
- Get the names and contact details of any witnesses.
- Contact your insurer and let them know about the accident.
- Call KD Trial Lawyers for assistance with recovering the compensation to which you are entitled.
Why You Need an Attorney
Insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid or minimize payouts on accident claims. They commonly engage in all kinds of tactics, from giving you the runaround to making lowball settlement offers that pay you far less than what your claim is worth. With a respected attorney on your side, these companies know that they can’t take advantage of you as a vulnerable accident victim. Our firm can force the insurer to be fair in compensating you due to the strong case we build backed by comprehensive evidence.
When you need a car accident lawyer in Spartanburg, we recommend that you work with an established and reputable firm. At KD Trial Lawyers, we have served the needs of South Carolinians since 2000. Our team brings extensive experience, insight, skills, and resources to your case.
