Distracted Driver Accident Attorney in Spartanburg

Get Help From an Experienced Spartanburg Personal Injury Attorney

The Dangers of Texting and Driving in South Carolina

Up until December 2014, drivers in South Carolina did not receive traffic tickets for texting and driving. However, it's now a ticketable offense under the distracted driving law. This is a "primary law," meaning police can pull over drivers for texting alone, instead of citing them as a secondary offense to another primary offense.

According to the National Safety Council, texting and driving causes 1,600,000 accidents per year. If you become part of these unfortunate statistics because someone was texting and driving and caused you to be involved in a car wreck, you may be due compensation for your injuries and damages. Spartanburg personal injury attorney David Yokel works hard to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve, as you work to heal and recover.

Helping You Get the Compensation You Need

When you're injured due to the fault of another, day-to-day living can become difficult. Physical and emotional pain interferes with your everyday tasks and, if you're unable to work, finances become a worry. You don't have to go through this alone. After an accident, such as one with a distracted driver, a personal injury attorney can take some of the burden off and help put you back on track to your normal life.

Common car accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Leg, knee, or ankle injuries
  • Permanent disability

A personal injury attorney works with you to protect your rights and ensure you receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and emotional pain and suffering. When an accident isn't your fault, you shouldn't be responsible for the financial consequences. David Yokel has more than 35 years as an aggressive personal injury attorney and works personally at your side to get the results you deserve.
