Georgetown Car Wreck Lawyer

In 2020, officials promised that fewer vehicle collisions was a “silver lining” to the dark lockdown cloud. However, the number of fatal car crashes increased significantly in 2020. The number increased even higher in 2021. This figure remains high. During lockdowns, drivers picked up some bad habits, like driving while intoxicated and speeding excessively. Usually, bad habits are easy to form and hard to break.

The diligent Georgetown car wreck lawyers at the Stanley Law Group are committed to victims and survivors. This commitment begins with a thorough case evaluation, after which we clearly explain your legal options. At the same time, we address immediate needs, such as medical care and alternative transportation. After we diligently collect evidence that supports your claims and refutes insurance company defenses, we file legal paperwork and never stop fighting for the compensation and justice you deserve.

What Causes Car Crashes?

Driver error causes over 98 percent of the car crashes in South Carolina. This driver error usually falls into one of three categories:

  • Operational: Speeding is the most common, and most dangerous kind of aggressive driving, because it increases the risk of a wreck and the force in a crash. Speeding drivers have less time to react to unexpected hazards, like pedestrians in the roadway or other aggressive drivers who turn illegally or tailgate.
  • Environmental: This kind of negligence is basically a failure to adjust to adverse conditions, as required by the duty of care. Once again, speeding is a good example. At night or during heavy rain, the duty of care requires motorists to slow down and use extra caution.
  • Behavioral: Some drivers are negligent before they slide behind the wheel. Substance abuse, mostly alcohol use, may be the most common form of behavioral negligence. The impairing effects of alcohol begin after the first sip. Other kinds of impairment include fatigue, which resembles intoxication in the way it affects judgment ability and motor skills, and a moderate or severe illness.

Many car crash injuries are difficult to diagnose and treat. Furthermore, on average, injury-related medical bills usually exceed $40,000. A Georgetown car wreck lawyer connects victims with top-notch doctors who, in most cases, charge nothing upfront for their professional services.

Georgetown Car Wreck Lawyers and Liability Issues

The aforementioned categories of driver error are usually negligence, or a lack of care. If negligence causes injury, attorneys can obtain compensation for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.

Evidence in a car wreck claim usually includes witness statements, the police accident report, and medical bills. Sometimes, this evidence is insufficient. Medical bills ate a good example.

Frequently, information in medical bills is limited to diagnosis, treatment, and cost data. This information, while important, is incomplete. Victims must also establish the amount of pain and suffering their injuries caused. Furthermore, compensation is only available if the treatment was medically necessary,

A partnership with an independent doctor usually fills these holes. These doctors testify about the victim’s pain level, based on the victim’s medical condition. They also testify that doctors performed reasonably necessary services.

Many times, a third party, like a commercial alcohol provider or employer, is financially responsible for car crash damages.
