As personal injury attorneys, we occasionally come into contact with clients that were offered money by the at-fault party at the scene of a car wreck. For drivers that have been in a car wreck before, taking the money can be tempting to avoid the stress and hassle of dropping your car off at a body shop, requesting a rental car, and dealing with two insurance companies. Maybe you do not want to call the police and report the wreck because you are driving an uninsured vehicle yourself. There are three main reasons why you should not let your impatience and/or fear get the best of you in this situation.

Confirming Identity of At-Fault Driver

If you and the at-fault party are both in a rush to leave the scene of the wreck, the at-fault party may provide you with incorrect contact information. Maybe he has a horrible driving record. He could be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These are both factors that a personal injury attorney could use to help increase the value of your case if you choose to hire one.

South Carolina U-Turn Laws

Published on Apr 27, 2018 at 11:39 am in Auto Safety.

One way to make a change of direction on a roadway is to perform a sharp left turn called a “U-turn”.  A U-turn is the fastest way a driver can begin driving in the opposite direction.  But because this maneuver can be dangerous in the wrong situation or in the wrong spot, many states regulate when and where it can be performed.

U-turns are legal in the state of South Carolina at intersections where there are no posted signs prohibiting them.  A driver must be in the extreme left lane to perform a legal U-turn.  Performing a U-turn from any other lane is not permitted.
