Single vs. Multiple Vehicle Accidents
Injured? Our Columbia car accident attorney can help.
car accident can be devastating occurrence, but when multiple vehicles are involved,
determining who was at fault can become more complicated. In some instances
a single vehicle goes out of control due to a faulty safety system such
as brakes, tires or other component, or due to hazards in the road that
were unavoidable, or dangerous weather conditions. In other cases, a serious
injury accident takes place and there are multiple vehicles involved.
South Carolina uses a modified negligence doctrine which only allows the
injured party to recover their damages if they are less than 50% at fault.
With this doctrine, the party that was found negligent would also only
be liable for the percentage of damage that he or she caused.
