Compensation for a Distracted Driving Accident

If you suspect distracted driving played a role in your collision with another driver, can you sue? In South Carolina, car accident compensation is based on fault for causing the accident. Fault is anything negligent that results in an accident, and negligence is anything that is unreasonably dangerous — like distracted driving.

It’s not necessarily dependent on who receives a ticket for the accident, but the offender may be cited for distracted driving. If a driver’s inattention is the cause of an accident, it may be grounds for an injured victim to receive compensation.

South Carolina Distracted Driving Law

S.C. Code § 56-5-3890 bans using a phone, computer, or other device to text while driving a motor vehicle on a public street in South Carolina.

This includes:

  • Composing
  • Sending
  • Reading

Any text-based communication. The prohibition does not include hands-free devices.

There are exceptions for when a vehicle is parked, calling emergency services, GPS navigation, and public safety officials in their official duties.

In addition, South Carolina lawmakers introduced a bill requiring hands-free driving. The bill would make it unlawful to hold a mobile electronic device, text, or watch a video on a mobile device while driving.

South Carolina Distracted Driving Statistics

According to the most recent data available in South Carolina, in 2021:

  • 2,679 people were injured in distracted driving accidents.
  • 6 fatalities occurred because of distracted driving or inattention to driving.
  • Distracted driving was a primary cause in 5.2% of traffic crashes.
  • One in every 167 traffic fatalities in South Carolina was because of distracted driving.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that distracted driving claims 3,000 lives each year in the United States.

Proving distracted driving

You may wonder how we prove distracted driving. After all, you must prove your case, and the defendant isn’t going to admit that they did anything wrong. Here are ways that we may prove distracted driving:

  • Traffic errors with no other explanation, like running a red light or failing to stop
  • Witnesses, including others in the defendant’s vehicle
  • Admissions made to a law enforcement officer
  • Data events recorded by a vehicle
  • Video surveillance or dash cam footage
  • Discovery methods to review cell phone data and other electronic information
  • Skilled questioning of the defendant at a deposition and at trial
  • Accident reconstruction to detail the speeds, directions, and forces of the accident

We will investigate the circumstances of the crash, how to prove fault, and sources of compensation.
