South Carolina man charged for fatal hit and run accident

A young man in South Carolina is accused of causing a fatal accident that occurred back in 2013. According to reports, a 22-year-old male was recently arrested and charged for what police claim was a hit and run incident. The charges in this case are quite significant, and the accused will face a number of potential consequences if a conviction is secured against him by prosecuting attorneys.

What is comparative negligence in personal injury cases?

If a person suffers an injury in an accident and chooses to seek compensation for said injury, a lot of factors are taken into consideration before it is decided whether compensation will be granted. South Carolina, like many other states, has contributory and comparative negligence laws. These laws can make it difficult to receive what one might consider full compensation for injuries suffered in an accident.

Compensation possible after single-vehicle car accidents

Multi-car collisions are a common occurrence in South Carolina. However, many more car accidents that occur across the state only involve a single-vehicle. In these instances, those who are injured or -- in the event of fatality -- surviving family members of crash victims may feel there is little they can do, but that is far from the truth. The drivers or car owners may be held responsible for any such incidents, and compensation for losses sustained may be recoverable.

Sexual assault accusations can be extremely damaging

Sex-related criminal accusation are very delicate in nature. These cases require a certain finesse to ensure the rights of both the accuser and the accused are fully protected. While acts of sexual assault are not taken lightly in South Carolina, those accused of such acts are fully entitled to a criminal defense on their behalf.

What is a drug diversion program?

Those who are accused of using or possessing illegal or illegally obtained controlled substances may face a myriad of consequences in a South Carolina criminal court. These may include jail and/or prison time, fines and many others. While cases involving drugs may only seem to have bleak outcomes, alternative sentencing may provide more positive solutions. The drug diversion program, for instance, can offer assistance and rehabilitation rather than punishment for those with drug addictions.

South Carolina man charged with DUI after wreck

An early morning accident in South Carolina resulted in the arrest of the driver believed responsible for the crash. This individual is facing multiple charges for the collision, including a DUI. As DUI offenses are not taken lightly, this man would likely benefit from a strategic criminal defense to fight the charges at hand.

Car accidents change the course of many lives

Few things are more tragic than the loss of a child. Parents and extended family members invest so much time, attention, care and love into raising a child, and to lose a loved one before his or her adult life even begins is a terrible wound. Two South Carolina families are currently going through the early stages of such a loss. As with so many cases in which fatal car accidents end lives, this is a tragedy that will forever alter the lives of those left behind.
