Identifying the liable party in most car accidents is usual simple. If another driver hits you by no fault of your own, then that driver should pay for your damages and medical bills. However, what if you are involved in a single car accident in South Carolina due to dangerous road conditions such as:

The Government Is Responsible For Maintaining Safe Roads
It is the South Carolina government's job to maintain roads and keep them reasonably safe. If you are involved in a crash caused by dangerous road conditions, the section of government responsible for the upkeep of that road can be held liable for all of your damages, but not always. The word to remember here is "reasonably."
Keeping all roads safe is a big job, which is why governments are allowed a reasonable amount of time to discover dangerous road conditions and a reasonable amount of time to repair them. Thus, you must be able to show that not only was the government aware of the dangerous road condition (or should have been aware), but also failed to repair the condition in a reasonable amount of time in order for you to be deserving of just compensation.
A South Carolina Fox News Report from 2015 revealed that South Carolina has the deadliest roads in the nation due to poor conditions. You can read the full article by clicking here.
Proving Your Cases Against The Government

That is exactly why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer when dealing with an accident caused by dangerous road conditions. We can help you identify these specific factors to determine the strength of your case against the government.
