Charleston Car Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been involved in a car accident in Charleston due to someone else’s negligence, contact a Charleston car accident lawyer immediately.
Charleston, South Carolina is one of the most dangerous cities in America for car accidents. Data compiled by Insurify found that the city is No. 12 for cities with the most accidents. The research indicates that the percentage of at-fault drivers with a prior accident stands at nearly 18.1%, higher than the national average of 12.4%.
Charleston isn’t the only city that is known for car accidents. According to Insurify, 7 of the top-20 most dangerous cities in the country for car accidents are located in South Carolina. The Joel Bieber Firm has been helping clients in Charleston get the compensation they rightfully deserve following a car accident.
With driving activity increasing 10% year-over-year compared to January 2020 in Charleston (according to Insurify), accidents are likely to be a more common occurrence moving forward. If you’re involved in an accident, remember to remain calm as best you can. Call the police, not only to ensure everyone involved in the accident is safe, but also a precautionary measure when your information is exchanged with the at-fault party. Also never make any statements (even saying “sorry” should be avoided) that would implicate you as the at-fault party.
The information that you should provide a Charleston car accident lawyer with should include:
- How did the incident happen?
- Where did the accident happen?
- Who was involved in the accident?
- Were there any witnesses at the time of the accident?
- Who did you speak with at the scene of the incident?
- What was said during the conversation?

Our team will work with you to ensure you’re treated fairly by the at-fault-party’s insurance company. We will not settle for anything less than you deserve, which is what insurance companies try to accomplish by forming a wedge between victims and their lawyers.

What’s REALLY Happening with
Auto Accident Claims
CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 aired a three-part report that revealed the underhanded tactics that many insurance companies are using to save themselves billions of dollars by reducing claims paid to minor-impact crash victims. These tactics – dubbed the “Three Ds,” delay, deny and defend – are discussed in the reports by former insurance industry insiders. CNN’s investigative team’s research and interviews revealed that multiple major insurance providers have employed these tactics during the course of the past 10 years. The result: 80 percent to 90 percent of accident victims settling without a fight for the small sums the companies offer. Often, these sums are as small as $50 and $100 when the victims are facing thousands of dollars lost.
