How do you determine fault for a car accident?

South Carolina is one of a handful of “fault” statues, meaning that proving fault for resulting injuries will be the crux of your case. In these types of cases, nothing has a bigger impact than successfully proving liability – with us on your side, you can trust that we will leave no stone unturned in investigating your case and making sure the responsible parties are held accountable.

To prove liability, you must show the following:

  • A legal duty was owed: The duty is that drivers must operate their vehicle with a reasonable standard of care
  • A duty was breached: You must show that the driver was negligent in fulfilling his or her duty of care
  • The breach of duty directly caused your injuries: Negligence alone doesn’t make a driver responsible – his or her actions have to be the direct and prominent cause of the accident.
