Columbia Failure to Observe Traffic Laws Car Accident Attorneys

If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver who failed to obey traffic laws, you have rights and deserve the best legal representation available. While many irresponsible drivers curse them or think they’re in place as a way to slow them down or give police officers an excuse to write them a ticket, traffic laws and signals exist to keep motorists safe. Imagine a world without traffic laws. The roads would be chaotic and accidents would happen at an alarmingly more frequent rate than they do already. At the Goings Law Firm, LLC, we understand that when motorists do not obey traffic laws, the chances of car accident increase dramatically, and with that, the chance at car accident injuries that could leave victims seriously injured and in some cases dead. This has already happened to you, and we believe it is an extreme injustice.

In the age of smartphones, texting and receiving push notifications from dozens of different apps every minute increases the risk of motorists not obeying traffic laws significantly. When drivers get distracted or act recklessly, they can run red lights, go the wrong way on a one-way street, or not yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. Failing to obey traffic laws such as the speed limit or any traffic signals significantly increases the risk of an accident that could cause serious, life-altering damage to everyone involved.

We are here to help you take legal action and fight for the financial compensation you need to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and decreased quality of life. Contact us today at (803) 350-9230 and take the first step in reclaiming your life.

Car Accident Cases We Handle

Car accidents are a daily occurrence and happen for a number of reasons. While many accidents are truly that—an accident—many more happen when drivers fail to obey traffic laws and act negligently. When this happens, these reckless drivers are choosing to put other lives at risk. By nature, traffic laws are not superfluous. They are in place to keep you, pedestrians, and every other motorist on the road safe from harm. Every time a motorist gets in a vehicle, they are entering an assumed contract between all other drivers to obey traffic laws while on the road, and when that contract is broken, innocent people pay the consequences. The aftermath of a car accident can be terrifying and overwhelming. From dealing with repair costs for your vehicle, stacks of unpaid medical bills, or even the possibility of never returning to work, you need someone on your side and in your corner. The Columbia car accident attorney will represent you if you’ve been involved in an accident caused by a driver:

  • Driving over the speed limit
  • Failing to stop at traffic signals
  • Failing to stop at stop signs
  • Not properly yielding
  • Failing to yield to pedestrians or cyclists
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Not using turn signals
  • Going the wrong way down a one-way street
  • Breaking any other traffic law

Let our team of attorneys fight for you every step of the way. We will speak with the other driver’s insurance company, collect evidence or witness reports, and file all the paperwork to make sure you get the financial compensation you need for all expenses related to your accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you’ve been in an accident, you need answers to your questions almost faster than you can ask them. With this in mind, the Goings Law Firm, LLC team has compiled a few of the questions they receive most often. If you don’t see your question or the answer is not as in-depth as you are looking for, please call us at (803) 350-9230 to speak to someone about the specifics of your case.

What should I do after an accident?

Keeping a clear head after a car accident can be difficult, but it’s important to do a few things if you don’t need immediate medical help. You should first call 911 to get an officer and medical crews to the scene. Then, collect as much contact information as you can from the other driver as well as witnesses who can corroborate what happened. You should also take as many photos of the scene as possible before contacting a car accident attorney.

I don’t have any injuries, do I still need an attorney?

Yes. Many car accident injuries do not show up immediately after an accident. In some cases, bruising, whiplash, and other injuries don’t become known until days or even weeks after an accident.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim following a car accident?

This is a common question we hear a lot. Many people do not take immediate action following their accidents and worry it’s too late. Under South Carolina law, the statute of limitations for car accident claims is three years. After that, you cannot file a claim or pursue damages.
