Types of Damages We Seek for Distracted Driving Victims
Accidents involving distracted drivers can occur anywhere and at any speed. As such, the injuries and damages victims suffer differ on a case-by-case basis. Thus, part of our legal services involves going through the case to note the ways the collision affected your life.
Then, we use our familiarity with South Carolina personal injury law to estimate their value so that we know how much compensation to seek for you. For example, you could recover compensation for:
- Medical treatment you received and other care you will need in the future
- Income you couldn’t collect while you were away from work to heal
- Pain and suffering your injuries cause you
- Damaged property, such as a totaled vehicle
This list does not represent all the possible recoverable compensation in South Carolina. For instance, you could collect wrongful death damages if you lost a loved one in a distracted driving collision. Our team will work with you to arrive at an accurate case value before seeking a settlement or court award.
The Cost of Hiring a Distracted Driving Accident Attorney
There is no need to worry about affording a car accident lawyer when you hire our firm. Our fee structure allows you to gain representation without paying anything up front or out of pocket. Instead, our fee is a percentage of the compensation we secure for you. This puts the incentive on us to fight hard for you and protects you from additional financial harm.

Does South Carolina Have Distracted Driving Laws?
Texting while driving is illegal in South Carolina under S.C. Ann. § 56-5-3890, but there are currently no other active laws regarding cellphone use while driving in the state. Still, this represents just one form of distracted driving; many other things can take a driver’s attention off the road in front of them.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the three main categories of distracted driving are:
- Visual distraction: As the name implies, visual distraction occurs when a driver removes their eyes from the road.
- Manual distraction: This form of distraction occurs when a driver takes one or both hands off the steering wheel.
- Cognitive distraction: Arguably the most difficult to prove (but no less dangerous than any other form), cognitive distraction takes place when a driver’s mind focuses on something other than driving.
