Texting Behind the Wheel Is a Negligent Act
Under South Carolina’s personal injury laws, an accident victim can pursue a case against the at-fault party as long as they can show the other party:
- Acted negligently, violating a traffic law or other statute
- Caused an accident that led to their injuries and financial damages
Our team works to identify evidence to support our clients’ cases, proving negligence, liability, and the value of the claim, keeping our clients abreast of the latest in their case every step of the way. We are available to answer questions and provide support for our clients throughout the legal process.
A violation of the state’s texting and driving law may lead to other careless and reckless actions behind the wheel, such as running a red light or failing to maintain a lane, which may directly cause the collision. Our team knows how to identify the contributing factors and document exactly what happened to cause your injuries. We pursue compensation for every client we represent, calculating your losses as allowed under the state’s personal injury laws.
Statute of Limitations
Per S.C. Ann. Code §15-3-530, we generally have three years to file a civil suit in these cases if necessary. However, we generally seek an agreement for our clients by negotiating with the liable party’s insurance company well in advance of this deadline, as long as we know about the case in time to do so.
Why You Should Consider Hiring an Attorney
We make it our mission to protect our clients’ rights, dedicate time and resources to their case, and develop an argument that will stand up in court or persuade the insurer to agree to a fair settlement. You can count on our team to:
- Be available to you when you need them
- Provide compassionate and understanding answers and support
- Take steps to try to hold the negligent parties accountable for their actions
- Seek financial compensation on your behalf based on your damages

Seeking Damages After a Greenville Texting While Driving Crash
Under S.C. Ann. Code §32, our team can seek a range of damages on behalf of our clients who were injured by a texting driver. If we represent you after your injury accident, we will work to identify, document, and put a value on each expense or loss you sustained. We will use this value to pursue a just payout by showing the insurance company your losses and negotiating with them based on what we believe is a fair settlement range.
Your individual expense and losses may vary, but some common damages we pursue on behalf of our clients include:
- Economic Expenses: Medical bills, care costs, future medical and care needs, property damages, out-of-pocket expenses, and other related costs.
- Economic Losses: Your missed wages and other income, diminished ability to earn a living, and lost benefits.
- Non-Economic Damages: Physical pain, emotional and mental suffering, diminished quality of life, and other intangible losses.
- Wrongful Death Damages: Burial and funeral expenses, final expenses, lost income, and intangible losses suffered by surviving family members of those who passed away in a Greenville traffic collision.
