For most of us, the most dangerous activity we undertake daily is driving in our cars. Most of us will, unfortunately, be involved in at least one car accident over the course of our lives. While we would hope any accident is minor, these accidents can often be serious and traumatic.
Contact the South Carolina car accident lawyers at The Williams Law Firm when you need assistance with a car accident or auto accident claim. While we are based in Columbia, SC, we serve every county in the state, from Beaufort to Pickens. It is highly recommended to work with an experienced lawyer, no matter how simple you believe your claim to be.
If this is your first automobile accident, you are likely in shock about the price, time, and frustration caused simply by trying to get yourself back on the road. Most drivers are not prepared to handle the disruptions to daily routine caused by auto accidents. Let The Williams Law Firm handle the hard work, so that you can focus on your recovery and treatment. Our goal is to make you whole again.
A lot of people choose to not contact a lawyer immediately following an accident, thinking a lawyer may be unnecessary. You certainly are not obligated to reach out to an attorney, but contacting a lawyer can improve your prospects for recovering the real compensation that you deserve. Retaining an attorney also provides peace of mind to many clients, knowing that their compensation is being pursued by a skilled partner with aligned interests. Our South Carolina car accident attorney helps out in the following ways:
Car accidents and related fatalities have been increasing since 2012. Over 30,000 Americans tragically pass away each year, and that statistic is on the rise. In excess of 35,000 Americans died from traffic accidents in 2015.

While these technological advances are great, and presumably make cars safer, they have failed to correct the alarming trend described above.
Cell phones are a likely culprit of the rise in incidents. The human brain is not designed to be able to text and drive. In 2014, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that eighteen percent or more of accidents are caused by a distracted drivers.
We will see where the technology takes us, perhaps to fully autonomous cars, but in the meantime it is every driver’s responsibility to operate their vehicle in a safe and responsible manner. When drivers fail to do so, people are injured or killed.
If you have suffered an injury at the hands of another driver or as a passenger in the vehicle of the at-fault driver, contact Williams Law Firm today, and let us get to work for you.

Our payment is based on our agreement at the onset of representation, when we will agree on a certain percentage of the secured compensation. This arrangement ensures that your interests and our interests are entirely aligned. We aim to get you the most amount of money in the most efficient manner.
