Why Do So Many Car Accidents Happen in South Carolina?

Did you know a car wreck happens every three minutes in South Carolina? Also, the number of fatalities and injuries associated with car accidents in South Carolina has increased substantially over recent years.

Why do so many accidents happen? 

Many factors exist, from driver error and environmental hazards to the time of day. By finding patterns in these factors, drivers can help reduce the number of car accidents. However, these factors are also vital indicators of who might be liable in a car accident and who you can claim compensation from.

The 4 Most Common Causes Of Car Accidents In South Carolina

Driver error is the most common cause of car accidents in South Carolina and the US. Distracted driving, speeding, and driving while intoxicated frequently lead to car accidents and cause serious injuries to those involved.

Another common driver-led cause of accidents is reckless driving. This comprises many behaviors, including running red lights, changing lanes unsafely, tailgating, road rage, and fatigued driving.

What’s most tragic about car accidents resulting from driver error is that they’re entirely preventable — if all drivers followed traffic laws, these accidents simply wouldn’t happen.

If you’re in a car accident caused by a driver’s negligent or reckless behavior, you’re entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

Unsurprisingly, traffic is at its heaviest at the end of a workday and during holidays. With more traffic on the road, accidents are more likely to happen. But the amount of traffic isn’t the only factor that increases the risk of a car accident.

Time can also be a contributing factor in other ways. In fall and winter, when it gets dark earlier, drivers might be affected by poor vision, causing them to miss a hazard and crash into another vehicle. The time of year also influences the weather. In months where inclement weather such as rain and snow is more frequent, a driver’s sight might be impaired. These conditions can also make an accident more deadly. For example, if a driver is speeding during a rainstorm, they might hydroplane and lose control of their vehicle.

Regarding car accidents, some counties in South Carolina are more dangerous than others. According to the most recent edition of the South Carolina Traffic Collision Fact Book, Greenville recorded the highest number of traffic collisions — 17,111. By comparison, Allendale recorded the fewest number of collisions — just 113.

With so many collisions happening in Greenville — especially compared to the rest of South Carolina — it’s vital to contact a car accident attorney if you’re in an accident. We can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Environmental factors may be responsible for just 3.1% of all auto accidents in South Carolina. However, with 141,096 collisions occurring in the state every year, the environment still accounts for over four thousand accidents.

Most car accidents happen on dry roadways, in clear weather, during the day. This isn’t surprising given that so many accidents are caused by another driver rather than road conditions. If you’re in a car accident because of environmental conditions, you may still be able to claim compensation.

For example, if poor drainage causes excessive standing water, a pothole bursts your tire, an uneven pavement causes you to lose control, or an obscured sign prevents you from knowing there’s a sharp turn up ahead, you may be able to claim compensation from the party responsible for keeping the road safe. If a driver was also at fault — such as speeding or driving while distracted — you may be able to seek compensation from them. Our South Carolina car accident attorneys can help you determine who’s at fault for your accident.

Brad was the best attorney with the best attitude. He was knowledgeable and efficient. At the worst possible time in our lives, he made sure that my family had the most favorable outcome possible. We consider him to not only be an asset to his firm but also an asset to our family. If you have a problem please go see him. He will definitely guide you in the right direction.

Met Tim and the team about a year ago now after a very traumatic accident within our family. I was referred to him from a good friend of mine. I was at the lowest point in my life at the time we met and within 5 mins into our meeting he assured me that he was going to pull me out of the pit that I was in. I was hesitant and had lost all trust in lawyers involved in our situation. It is due to his knowledge and communication skills that I am able to feel confident I habe made the right decisions for our situation. I would recommend him to literally anyone and trust his judgment and opinion on anything. I would consider him a friend after dealing with him over the past year. Our conversations were not always strictly business. He does have such a kind heart and always ask about my children who were involved in the traumatic accident. If Tim and his team can’t help in a certain situation I would trust his referral to someone else 100%. Thank you Tim and The Clardy Law Firm for all of the hard work and dedication to the clients. We truly appreciate it!
