The number of auto accidents across the country continues to climb at a rapid rate. We live in the age of smart phones, texting, complex navigation systems and car displays. There are more options to distract South Carolina drivers behind the wheel than ever before. Rather than focusing on the road in front of them, drivers have their attention directed elsewhere, something that frequently leads to dangerous and deadly collisions. If you are involved in a car accident, you will need the services of an experienced auto accident attorney.
Those injured in these terrible accidents must endure painful surgeries, lost work, rehabilitation and expensive medical bills, all because of the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of others. Many auto accident victims discover how daunting it can be to collect money from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. The insurance settlement process forces already exhausted people to deal with savvy insurance claims adjusters whose sole job it is to ensure your case settles for as little money as possible. The Sanyal Law Firm has several years of experience handling South Carolina auto accident claims. We can help fight for the money your family deserves!
Common Causes of Auto Accidents
The common causes of auto accidents in South Carolina:
- Disregard of the right of way;
- Fatigued or drowsy driving;
- Recklessness (e.g. exceeding the speed limit);
- Distracted driving (e.g. use of cell phone while driving);
- Lack of traffic signs or signals;
- Poor road maintenance; and
- Road hazards.
In any of these causes, negligence is almost always involved. As it is, it is the motorist’s duty to exercise care towards others in a reasonable manner in order to avoid an accident from happening. Every driver is expected to be careful, not only for his or her own benefit, but for others as well. Otherwise, regardless if the behavior is intentional or not, an accident can happen at any time, causing injuries and deaths.

The most recent report put together by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety indicates that a traffic accident happens in the state every 4.9 minutes. While injury producing accidents occur ever 17 minutes, deadly crashes happen every 10 hours. More than 800 fatal car accidents occur across South Carolina every year.
While these lost lives represent tragic and often unnecessary losses, what is even more alarming is the number of injury producing collisions. Though there are more than 800 deadly accidents each year, the state estimates that more than 100,000 total collisions take place every year. Of this total, more than 30,000 result in some form of injury to the occupants of the vehicles. While only a small share ultimately proves deadly, the list of debilitating injuries that can arise from such collisions is long. These life-long injuries can lead to permanent disability and the loss of a person’s enjoyment of life.
Based on data gathered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes cost South Carolina residents more than $1 billion each and every year. Between millions of dollars spent on medical care and hundreds of millions in lost work time, the costs of auto accidents are staggering.
