What are my responsibilities if I injure or kill someone in an accident?

If you are involved in a car accident, there are several things you are required to do by law. The South Carolina Code says a driver must immediately stop at the scene of the accident.

He must return and remain at the scene until he has fulfilled the following requirements:

  1. Must give name, address, and registration number of the vehicle.
  2. If asked to see his license, the driver must show his identification to the injured party.
  3. Must offer reasonable assistance to help the injured person(s), including making arrangements to carry or have the injured party carried to the hospital via EMS.

Following these guidelines are important when you are involved in an accident. If you or your family member are the injured party, you may need help getting the benefits you need after the accident.
