“Auto Accidents and the Law” – A Pamphlet and Information Form Every Driver Should Keep in the Glovebox

As a public service, the South Carolina Bar published a handy pamphlet to assist drivers involved in automobile accidents. It includes a brief form drivers should complete at the scene of the accident (or as soon as possible after receiving medical treatment). We suggest every driver in South Carolina keep a copy of this pamphlet in the glovebox. A free copy is available at: http://www.scbar.org/public/files/docs/AutoAccident.pdf

It may also be important for you to meet with an attorney soon after your accident. A personal injury attorney can:

-Assess and explain your legal rights;
-Help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your claim;
-Negotiate with the insurance claims adjuster;
-File a lawsuit (if necessary) and represent you in court;
-Give you peace of mind that no stone will go unturned.
