Your Car Accident Was Not an Accident
Let me start by explaining why I don’t personally use the word car accident. I must use it on my website because most people refer to car crashes as car accidents—and I want people to read my website. I don’t believe most car crashes are accidents. I believe that most car crashes are the natural and likely result of people breaking the safety rules.
The safety rules are those laws that require drivers to operate their vehicles so that they don’t hurt other people. But these are not "just" people: They are other drivers, passengers, children, seniors, mothers, daughters, teachers, doctors, nurses, accountants, librarians, bankers, police officers, and clerks. In short, the safety rules exist to protect everyone in our community from injury.
The safety rules are there to protect us all. The word accident suggests an event that occurs unexpectedly or unintentionally. However, the vast majority of car crashes are caused by drivers breaking the safety rules. I know because I’ve researched the data. Drivers choose to exceed the speed limit, run stop signs, or fail to yield the right of way. The reason we have the safety rules is to prevent crashes. Choosing to violate those safety rules is not unintentional. Therefore, most car crashes are not accidental. The latest data tell us that only 4% of car crashes can truly be defined as accidents.
South Carolina Law Protects You
So let's talk about what the law says about car crashes. South Carolina law requires drivers who break the safety rules and cause injury to another person to compensate the victim for the damage the rule breaker caused. South Carolina law mandates that rule-breaking drivers take responsibility for the harms and losses they cause.
Insurance Adjusters Know the Law
Insurance companies and rule breakers may use a variety of tactics to avoid responsibility for the harm they caused. These tactics can range from questioning who was at fault for the crash, questioning your injuries, questioning your credibility, and refusing to pay for certain medical treatment.
You Must Know The Law
You must combat the insurance companies with the truth about the law. At this point you may have some of the following questions:
