If you have been injured in an auto accident in South Carolina, you will want to get as much information about the crash as you can. You will be able to find a lot of the details you’re looking for in the accident reports filed by South Carolina police, sheriff’s deputies and highway patrolmen.
The authorities that were at the scene of your accident will talk to all of the drivers and witnesses involved and keep their statements in your file. They will also likely include information about the scene and the condition of the vehicles. They typically assign fault to one of the drivers involved in the accident.
If you are not at fault, you might want to consider legal action against the responsible driver. Looking at the accident report can give you a better understanding of how the accident happened and how you were hurt.
