Claiming compensation after a distracted driving crash

Being involved in a car wreck can turn a nice day into a nightmare. Unfortunately, many individuals have to deal with this event just because someone didn’t give their full attention to driving. Distracted drivers can slam into other vehicles, which can cause serious injuries.

For a person who’s involved in a crash, the journey toward returning to their full abilities might be long. They will often need medical care after the crash, but this might not be immediately evident. It is fully possible that they might not notice the need for medical help until a few days after the crash.

The extent and severity of the injuries is one thing that comes into the picture when you’re trying to determine how soon you’ll be able to return to your normal activities. Catastrophic injuries might cause you to never return to normal.

If you’re struck by a distracted driver, you might opt to seek compensation for your injuries. This includes the cost of medical care, therapy, follow-up care and similar expenses. It can also cover the wages you didn’t earn when you had to miss work because of the injuries, as well as other damages that occur because of the crash.

We’re here to help you find out what types of damages you may seek. We want to help you recover financially from the wreck by holding the distracted driver and any other liable party accountable for the effects of the crash. South Carolina law limits the time you have to get your claim filed, so you must act quickly before time expires.
