Types of SC Automobile Accidents

Every automobile accident is different, and learning the details of each incident is key to understanding who is at fault and how to hold them accountable. The personal injury lawyers at Axelrod and Associates have seen most types of auto accidents, and traffic congestion in the Myrtle Beach and Conway area has contributed to head-on collisions, side-swipes, rollovers, single-car accidents and multi-vehicle pile-ups. Each case has its own story to tell and each case brings its own set of challenges.

Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions can be the most destructive type of crash and often involve fatalities. The survivors may face extended hospitalization or debilitating injuries that require long-term care. When another driver crosses the center-line into the path of oncoming vehicles, there is often no time to react and nothing that can be done to avoid colliding with the negligent driver's vehicle.

Side-Swipe Impacts

When a car moves into your lane and strikes your vehicle, in many cases each driver can regain control and emerge with only scratched paint or dents to their cars. But when one or both drivers lose control after the side-swipe, it can lead to a more serious situation involving multiple cars and more serious injuries. In this type of case, we must prove who caused the incident and that driver is responsible for the damage and injuries that you suffered because of the accident.

Rear-End Impacts

Many rear-end impact cases amount to small fender-benders in heavy traffic situations with minimal property damage and no injuries. When the at-fault driver is moving at higher speeds and strikes a stationary or slow-moving car the resulting collisions can be more severe. When the at-fault driver strikes a vehicle at higher speeds and causes them to lose control, the resulting high-speed accident can result in severe injuries and may involve more than one car. When a driver rear-ends the car in front of them, that driver is usually going to be the at-fault party under South Carolina law, and they must pay for any damages that were caused by their negligence.

Rollover Accidents

Slippery roads, failing to slow down on sharp curves, sudden turns, or losing control of the automobile for any reason can lead to a rollover accident. Vehicles with a higher center-of-gravity are more likely to be involved in rollover accidents, such as trucks or SUVs, but it can also happen in cars. Even if there are no other cars involved if you are a passenger who was injured in a rollover accident you should contact Axelrod and Associates immediately to find out if we can help you to get full compensation for your injuries.

Side-Impact Collisions

T-Bone collisions are often caused by a driver who has disregarded a traffic signal such as a stop sign, yield sign, or stop light. A driver who ignores a red light at an intersection may end up crashing into a car that is lawfully driving through on a green light. Although all persons involved may end up with injuries, these accidents are the most severe for the person or people seated on the side of the car that is struck.
