South Carolina Car Accident Lawyer

No one should be left with the aftermath of another’s negligent driving. If you were injured because another driver felt like their time was more valuable than your life, they deserve to be held financially accountable for your damages, including medical bills, pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages, and more. Marc Brown can help you seek justice by filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit, demanding fair compensation from the negligent driver’s insurance company.

Five Most Common Types of Car Crashes

  • Rear-Enders—Rear end crashes happen when one party is either following too closely, the driver in front intentionally steps on the brakes to “punish” the rearward driver, or when the front driver passes and cuts in without enough space on the highway. Moreover, not all rear-enders are fender benders. High speed rear-end collisions on the highway can cause cervical fractures among either party. Relatively low speed rear end crashes often result in whiplash, facial lacerations from broken glass and airbags, and fractured knee caps or legs from impacting the front dash.
  • Sideswipe Collisions—A sideswipe crash is most likely to occur when a driver is changing lanes or merging and collides with a vehicle to the side that was already there. Sideswipe crashes usually happen when the lane-changing or swerving driver fails to check their mirrors, or drifts out of the lane because of their cell phone.
  • T-Bone Collisions—Running a red light or stop sign is likely to result in a T-bone crash, which are one of the most dangerous types of collisions. T-bones often result in serious injuries for both drivers, and if the speed is high enough, a rollover.
  • Rollover Crashes—Rollovers, while somewhat rare, account for a high proportion of fatal traffic collisions. Rollovers are most likely to happen at high speeds and during emergency maneuver situations. Taller vehicles, such as SUVs and vans, are more prone to rolling over than cars.
  • Head-On Crashes—The combined speed of both vehicles make head-on crashes the most likely to result in death or extreme injuries. Drunk drivers, texters, and aggressive speeders are most likely to cause this type of crash.

The Three Most Likely Causes of Car Crashes

While car accidents are usually referred to as accidents—a word, by definition, that requires a degree of unpredictability—the truth is that the vast majority of car crashes are caused by bad driving, such as texting, speeding, tailgating, and rapid lane changes. Everyone understands the dangers that these types of driving behaviors pose, and as such, the likelihood that they will cause a crash. The three most common causes of car crashes are:

  1. Distracted Driving
  2. Aggressive/Impatient Driving
  3. Drunk Driving

An experienced attorney can help you prove that the other driver was at fault, possibly because they were engaged in one or more of these driving behaviors.
