Am I responsible for any damages if I was forced to act quickly?

When we are put in a sudden emergency or potentially dangerous situation, we are forced to quickly act to avoid a car accident or injury.

According to South Carolina law, if a driver is placed in such a situation and he makes a choice that a rational person would make in the same situation, he is not considered guilty of negligence even if his actions were not the best ones to make. This law allows for error on behalf of the driver who is faced with an emergency situation.
