Horry County Distracted Driving Accident Attorney
Seek Compensation After a Distracted Driving Crash
Driving is a complex task. When you are behind the wheel of a moving vehicle, you have to make split-second decisions that affect your safety and the safety of those around you. Drivers must watch the road, the traffic, the speedometer, and the mirrors. They must interact with the vehicle itself, checking the engine, the gas gauge, the temperature, and the tires.
All of these tasks are important and require drivers' attention. If they are not paying attention to the road, however, they can become a danger to themselves and everyone else on the road. When this happens, and you are injured by these negligent drivers, you will need a distracted driving accident attorney to help you get the compensation that you need.

What is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving is a dangerous and often deadly behavior that has become increasingly prevalent in today's digital age. It occurs when a driver diverts their attention away from the task of operating a vehicle to focus on something else. This "something else" can encompass a wide range of activities, such as texting, talking on the phone, eating, adjusting the radio, or even browsing social media. Regardless of the specific distraction, the consequences can be devastating, leading to accidents that result in serious injuries or fatalities.
South Carolina's Distracted Driving Laws
South Carolina recognizes the dangers of distracted driving and has implemented laws to address this issue. In our state, it is illegal to text while driving, and drivers are prohibited from using any wireless communication devices while driving.
This law does not apply to individuals who are:
- Lawfully parked or stopped.
- Using a hands-free wireless electronic communication device.
- Summoning emergency assistance.
- Transmitting or receiving data as part of a digital dispatch system.
- Public safety officials performing their official duties.
- Using a global positioning system (GPS) device or the internal GPS function of a wireless electronic communication device for navigation or obtaining related traffic and road condition information.
However, despite these laws, distracted driving accidents continue to happen far too often.
