Types of Cases We Handle

Car accidents happen in all kinds of circumstances. We handle a wide range of motor vehicle accident cases, including:


Speeding means driving above the posted speed limit or driving too fast for conditions. Speeding reduces the time drivers have to react to changing conditions around them. It increases the forces on impact, raising the chances of serious injury. A car accident caused by speeding may be grounds for compensation for victims.

Following too closely, tailgating

All drivers should leave sufficient following distance for the vehicle in front of them. If the vehicle ahead stops, the driver behind should have enough room to stop. Most crashes caused by following too closely or tailgating are the fault of the driver in the back, but there may be some exceptions.

Stop sign violations and running a red light

Drivers must always follow right-of-way rules. Failing to come to a complete stop and wait for oncoming traffic at a stop sign or red light can be the cause of an accident. Accidents in intersections are often side-impact crashes with serious injuries.

Careless and reckless driving

Driving safely means driving with reasonable care and caution. It’s what the law requires. A case for car accident compensation may be based on careless or reckless driving.

Distracted driving, texting

Texting and other forms of distracted driving take the driver’s attention from the road. Even if it’s for only a brief time, it can be enough to cause an accident. Drivers are expected to keep their attention on the road. When they don’t, they may be at fault for an accident.

Single, two-vehicle and pileup accidents

Whether your crash involves one, two or many vehicles, we can help you evaluate fault and build your case for compensation.

Drunk driving, driving under the influence

Drunk driving may be the basis of a civil case for compensation whether or not there are criminal charges authorized. Driving under the influence is never acceptable, morally or legally. Let us help you use the legal process to hold the offender accountable and receive fair compensation for the harm that has happened.

Vehicle defects and malfunctions

A vehicle defect or malfunction may be the cause of a car accident. At the time of a crash, you may be unaware that a problem with a vehicle contributed to the crash. Our lawyers can investigate and work with experts to document why the crash occurred.

Head-on, rear-end, T-bone, sideswipe and rollover accidents

Car crashes are often characterized by the point of impact, whether it is a head-on, T-bone or other type of collision. Any location of impact between vehicles can cause serious injuries. We work with accident reconstruction professionals to prove what happened and how the crash caused your injuries.

Serious and catastrophic injury

When a car accident results in a serious or catastrophic injury, the victim’s entire life has been changed. The legal case must be handled with this in mind. Long-term damages should be identified and claimed. When you work with TSB Injury Law, you have a lawyer who can look at the big picture and pursue your legal interests.

Fatality, wrongful death

Family members who have lost a loved one because of a car accident may seek justice and compensation through a wrongful death claim. We understand that you are grieving. When you work with our law firm, you have a car accident lawyer who understands the importance of helping survivors who have lost a member of their family.

Transparent Legal Representation for Car Accident Victims

At The Law Office of Taylor S. Braithwaite, we believe that outstanding legal representation begins with transparency. We give you truthful, honest information. By fully understanding you and your case, we can create a plan to advocate for you.

A car accident claim is an adversarial proceeding. Insurance companies defend against car accident claims, looking for ways to pay as little as possible. For that reason, our legal representation must be adaptable and flexible. We create a legal plan to move your case in the right direction, responding to any attempts to deny liability. Attorney Taylor Braithwaite represents clients at all stages of a case from the beginning through resolution, including any formal court proceedings and appearances.

Grounds for Car Accident Compensation

When lawyer Taylor Braithwaite meets with car accident victims for the first time, they often ask, Do I have a car accident claim? In South Carolina, the answer depends on a legal term – negligence.

Drivers, and even others who are not driving a motor vehicle, have what’s called a duty of care. They must act reasonably with care and caution to prevent injury to others. For motor vehicle drivers, that means following the rules of the road. It means driving at a reasonable speed and paying attention.

When someone acts negligently, and their negligence is the cause of an accident, they are likely to have legal fault. Negligence is based on what’s reasonable under the circumstances. A reasonable person follows traffic laws, knowing that careful behavior is important to avoid injury.

A claim may also be based on recklessness or intentional conduct. These behaviors are more serious than negligence. In addition, a claim may also be based on a vehicle defect that causes an accident or increases its severity.

Legal Services Adapted to Your Needs and Interests

Here are some additional circumstances and factors that may be present in your car accident case:

Cases involving shared and comparative fault

South Carolina uses a system of comparative fault. If the other side is saying that you share some blame for the accident, let us evaluate. The insurance company doesn’t have final say, and they may not be correct. Even if you have some fault, you may still receive compensation as long as you are not 51% or more to blame. We handle cases involving shared and comparative fault.

Commercial drivers

At any given time, there are many commercial drivers on the roads. They may be transporting goods or people, or traveling to work locations. When a case involves a commercial driver or vehicle, there are special things to understand about the compensation process. Lawyer Taylor Braithwaite can represent you.

Government vehicles

When a government vehicle is involved in a crash, the government may pay compensation. The South Carolina Tort Claims Act waives governmental immunity for torts including car accidents. Having a lawyer means having a professional on your side who understands the laws that apply to claims involving units of government. We know the steps to build and pursue your case.

Adult and child victims

Our law firm represents adults and children. Whatever your personal circumstances, getting justice following a car accident is important. The compensation you receive reflects your personal losses and circumstances. We build a complete picture as we advocate for the compensation you deserve.

Compensation for Car Accident Victims

Compensation for a car accident should reflect the victim’s financial and personal losses. It’s important to look at each category for damages that may apply.

Medical expenses

  • Ambulance transfer, emergency diagnostic and stabilization care
  • Ongoing medical care, physical therapy
  • Prescription medication and medical supplies
  • Mental health treatment

Other financial losses

  • Lost income, bonuses, profits and benefits
  • Lost long-term career
  • Property damage
  • Cost of travel for medical care
  • Cost of personal care or replacement household services

Non-economic losses

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional anguish
  • Disability, disfigurement and scars
  • Lifestyle limitations
  • Loss of society and companionship, injury to reputation, humiliation

Each person should review their individual losses. Non-economic losses can be a significant part of the case value. Many car accident victims underestimate the value of non-economic losses, but they are a very real loss that should be recognized in a car accident case.

There are other factors that may influence your compensation including the clarity of legal fault, insurance policies and other sources of compensation. With our promise of transparency and straightforward legal representation, we explain what we expect for the value of your case and why. Plus, we give you guidance and counsel to make informed decisions during your case.

Car Accident Case FAQs

Is South Carolina a no-fault state?

South Carolina is an at-fault state. The state has not passed no-fault laws. Victims of car accidents may access the courts to seek compensation regardless of the severity of their injuries. In addition, comparative negligence apportions fault between the parties in situations where there is shared fault.

What does a car accident lawyer do?

A car accident lawyer is a licensed legal practitioner who represents their client’s interests in getting fair compensation following a car accident. They may provide a variety of services advocating for their client in the legal process and providing legal advice throughout the case.

Should I get a car accident lawyer?

If you have been injured in a car accident, and you sought medical treatment, it is probably worth getting a car accident lawyer. A lawyer can evaluate the situation, how to get compensation and whether you are getting the appropriate amount. They can advocate for you and handle interactions with the insurance company.

Who is usually at fault in a car crash?

Usually, the driver committing a traffic violation is at fault for causing a car crash. However, there may be other causes like a malfunctioning vehicle or a deteriorated road. Fault may be shared with multiple causes and contributing factors.

Where would you file a car accident case in Aiken, SC?

Most car accident claims for compensation in Aiken, SC should be filed in the Aiken County Court of Common Pleas. The court is part of the Second Circuit Court along with Barnwell and Bamberg counties.

Sometimes a different county’s court is available due to the facts and circumstances of the case or the person at-fault for the accident. Ultimately, the correct court to hear the case depends on the amount of damages, the parties involved, and the applicable law – all factors which need to be considered by an experienced attorney in order to help you obtain the best recovery.

What is the minimum amount of automobile liability insurance required in SC?

South Carolina drivers are required to carry liability and uninsured motorist coverage with at least the following limits: $25,000 bodily injury per person; $50,000 bodily injury per accident; $25,000 property damage per accident.

Although automobile insurance companies must offer their policyholders the option of purchasing underinsured coverage (to pay for whatever the at-fault driver’s insurance doesn’t cover), it is not mandatory.

What evidence is important in a car accident case?

Some of the best evidence that a victim can present in an accident case includes photo and video evidence, the police report, eyewitness statements, and medical records. The victim’s recollection of the crash and its consequences can also serve as valuable testimony, especially to seek pain and suffering damages. Evidence and testimony from expert witnesses are also pivotal and may involve accident reconstructionists and professionals who can estimate the future medical expenses the victim may incur.

How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer?

Car accident lawyer Taylor Braithwaite works on a contingency fee agreement, which means that our firm does not get paid for our work unless the victim recovers monetary damages.
