Cases We Handle
Driving too fast for conditions, speeding
Driving too fast for conditions and speeding are leading causes of car accidents. Sadly, they are preventable causes of car accidents. Drivers who speed, resulting in an accident, may be liable to pay compensation.
Traffic violations, lane change, and stop sign violations
When a traffic error results in an accident, it may be the basis for compensation. Lane change violations, violating the right of way, and driving the wrong way are examples of traffic violations that may amount to negligence.
Following too closely
A driver must leave enough room for the driver in front of them to stop if necessary. They must gauge the road conditions, speed of travel, and other factors to determine the appropriate following distance.
Sideswipe, T-bone, rear-end, improper backing, rollover
We handle all types of collisions, including side impact, T-bone accidents, rear-end collisions, improper backing up, and rollovers. We work with accident reconstruction experts to extrapolate evidence and prove liability.
Distracted driving plays a role in too many accidents. Texting while driving, personal grooming, interacting with others in the vehicle, and other distractions can result in a crash.
Claims involving commercial vehicles
When a claim involves a commercial vehicle, we take care of the important steps to prove liability. The defense may have a team of lawyers representing them, but you can have a dedicated lawyer serving your interests.
Drunk driving or operating under the influence of drugs
If you’re hit by a drunk driver, the offender should be held accountable. See how a legal claim can help you receive justice and get the compensation you deserve.
Defective and malfunctioning vehicles
When a vehicle malfunctions or when it has a defect, it can cause a crash. We learn what happened and who should be held responsible.
Do I have a car accident claim?
Most car accident claims are based on negligence. A lack of reasonable care – even a simple traffic violation – can make a party at fault for a car accident. It’s not necessarily based on who receives a traffic ticket. We can investigate the entire circumstances and pursue all opportunities for your compensation.

Car Accident Damages and Compensation
Many people think they can only receive reimbursement for initial medical bills following a car accident. That’s just one part of a claim. South Carolina law recognizes a wide range of economic and non-economic damages, reflecting the ways you’re harmed by a car accident.
Medical bills from a car accident?
Medical bills and expenses from a car accident may include emergency care, surgery, treatment, diagnostics, prescriptions, and medical supplies. This category of compensation includes doctor visits, nursing care, and physical therapy. We can help you make a complete claim.
Can’t work because of an accident?
Car accident compensation can include lost income, bonuses, tips, the value of medical insurance, and other benefits that you receive from employment. You may claim lost income and projected future losses to your long-term career path.
Experiencing pain and suffering?
Pain and suffering compensation should reflect the severity of the accident and the harm you have endured. Severity of injury, permanent disfigurement, and impact to lifestyle are all types of non-economic losses that may be sustained.
Do you have long-term losses?
The effects of a car accident often last long after a legal claim has been resolved. Future damages can be compensated, but they must be a part of your case. With McCall Law as your lawyer, we ensure your claim includes future damages that may be appropriate.
