What Causes Greenville Car Accidents?
Before you take your car accident claim to a courtroom, you need to know what caused your accident. This information can help you identify the party liable for your injuries so you know who to sue for personal injury.
In many cases, driver error is the cause of a serious accident. Distracted driving especially is a serious issue that leads to major injuries all over the country. But it’s not the only cause—drowsy driving, road rage, and driving under the influence can all also lead to car crashes.
But what if driver error wasn’t the problem? You may need to look at the car itself, or the road, for defects and malfunctions. If your car malfunctioned and caused the accident, the manufacturer may be held responsible. If a pothole or road defect caused your injuries, the South Carolina Department of Transportation may be at fault.
South Carolina Insurance Claims Process
Greenville drivers may be relieved that their car insurance should cover the costs of their injuries. But car insurance can be complex.
For example, South Carolina is a fault state for car accidents. That means the at-fault party is responsible for your injuries. You may be able to file a third-party claim with the company, or you can file a claim with your insurance company, which will then seek payment from the at-fault party’s insurer.
Insurance companies don’t always have your best interests in mind, however. These companies are for-profit businesses, which means they may instead try to avoid paying for your injuries and other damages. Insurers and the at-fault party may even try pinning part of the blame on you, which would reduce the compensation you’re owed.
If you’ve been hurt in a Greenville car accident and you need compensation, you don’t have to deal with the claims process alone. Your lawyer can help you prove your claim’s value and get fairly compensated.
