Single vs. Multiple Vehicle Accidents

Injured? Our Columbia car accident attorney can help.

A single 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.
