Greenville Car Accident Claims

Greenville Accident Lawyer

Serious car accident injuries can cost you far more than the immediate expenses you face now. If your injuries cause long-term or permanent impairment you may never be able to earn a living again. Even for those who recover physically the medical expense and time out of work can have a ripple effect creating a cloud of debt that they can never earn their way out of. When someone else is to blame for your injuries, that person can be held financially responsible for your injuries and future losses.  Greenville car accident claims lawyer Dan Pruitt can help you collect fair compensation.

Driver Negligence

Driver negligence is the most common cause of car accidents. Anyone who causes someone else to be harmed, because they fail to use the most basic level of care, can be held financially responsible. Negligent driving includes:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failure to yield
  • Tailgating
  • Driving too fast for road or weather conditions, even within the speed limit
  • Failure to signal
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Intoxication
  • Driver fatigue

Although driver negligence is often a traffic infraction, law enforcement does not always find negligence and issue a citation. Our Greenville accident lawyer is an experienced trial lawyer who will thoroughly investigate your accident claims to uncover all causes and contributing factors.

Defective Vehicle

Defective vehicles are involved in many accidents, some of which they cause, and others which have another cause, but in which a defect contributes to the seriousness of the injuries.

Defective seatbelts, faulty airbags, and fuel system defects leading to fuel-fed fire can all cause injuries or death in the event of an accident. Those are just a few examples of what is called a “crashworthiness” defect.

Of course, there are many defects which can cause an accident. Examples include:

  • Defective brakes
  • Faulty tires
  • Defective steering
  • Ignition defect
  • Defects leading to unintended acceleration
  • Sensor defects
  • Faulty suspension
  • Design flaw leading to rollover
  • Fuel system defects
  • Air bags which deploy when they should not
