Car Accident Attorneys in Charleston
We’re Over 30 Years Strong, and We’re Just Getting Started
To say car accidents are dangerous would be a gross understatement. In 2018 alone, there were 33,654 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States, in which 36,560 deaths occurred, according to the Federal Highway Administration. Car accidents can occur anywhere- on residential streets, highways, clustered freeways, or in town. Whatever the setting, these accidents can be extremely dangerous under the right circumstances, and may even result in catastrophic or deadly injuries. Unfortunately, many of these incidents are preventable.
If you or your loved one was injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence or mistake, our firm wants to hear from you.

Car Accident Statistics Everyone Should Know
When it comes to protecting yourself from a dangerous car accident, there’s only so much you can do if other drivers don’t do their part. That said, keeping informed is one of the best ways to either arm yourself against potential dangers, or spot problematic issues after an accident has already occurred.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, here’s a few valuable car accident statistics everyone should know:
- An average of 6 million car accidents occur every year.
- About 3 million people are injured in car accidents each year.
- More than 90 people die in car accidents in the U.S. daily.
- Wearing a seatbelt can decrease your risk of injury by 50%.
- 72% of all car accidents result in property damage.
- 40% of all deadly car accidents are caused by alcohol.

- You are 23 times more likely to crash while texting and driving.

Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents can cause minor, moderate, or severe injuries. Our team has worked on cases involving all types of different car accident injuries. We will Stand Up For You to make sure you get the fair compensation required to recover.
Common car accident injuries include:
- Spinal injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Road rash
Mental health injuries can also be caused by a car accident. Living with anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be just as damaging as a serious physical injury. We will give you a safe space to discuss the full extent of your injuries, including mental health concerns. With a full understanding of your injuries, we can better determine how much compensation you are owed.
What You Should Do After an Accident
After a car accident, you should call 911 to get medical attention for you and anyone else who might need it. Next, you must exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver or drivers. Get the contact information of passengers, pedestrians, and bystanders, too. Take pictures of the car accident. Lastly, you should contact CR Legal Team to protect your rights as an injured driver.
CR Legal Team Stands Up For You
