Degree of Fault 

South Carolina is a fault state that follows the rules of modified comparative negligence. This means, an accident victim can receive compensation equal to the at-fault driver’s degree of liability. For example, if you are speeding 10 mph over the limit at the time that a driver runs a red light and hits you, you may be found to be 10 percent liable for the accident and the at-fault driver 90 percent to blame.

Every truck accident claim is different, and an experienced attorney can examine the details of an accident and help victims and their families gain an understanding of what a specific case might be worth. Our legal team can answer your questions and help you more fully understand your rights.
