Types of Car Accident Claims We Handle

Under South Carolina law, those injured in car accidents are entitled to claim damages, which may include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and compensation for pain and suffering. South Carolina operates under a "fault" system, meaning that the party who is deemed to be at fault for the accident is liable for any resulting harm. This makes it crucial to have experienced legal representation to assist in establishing fault and seeking compensation.

At Romeo Deters, we handle a broad spectrum of car accident claims, including but not limited to:

  • Rear-end collisions: Frequently caused by tailgating, distracted driving, or sudden deceleration of the leading vehicle. These can result in injuries ranging from whiplash to more severe spinal cord injuries.
  • Hit and run accidents: Where the at-fault driver leaves the scene without providing their details. These cases can be complex, but our experience can help track down the culprit or seek compensation through uninsured motorist coverage.
  • Rollover accidents: Often caused by high-speed collisions or hitting a curb or guardrail. These can lead to severe or fatal injuries due to the violent nature of the rollover.
  • T-bone accidents: These occur when the front of one vehicle collides with the side of another. Often caused by failure to yield, they can result in serious injuries due to the lack of structural protection on the side of vehicles.
  • Commercial vehicle accidents: Involving large trucks, buses, taxis, or other commercial vehicles. These cases often involve multiple parties and require extensive knowledge of commercial vehicle regulations.
