if injured in car accident you may be due compensation.

D. Scott Drescher has successfully represented individuals injured in virtually every imaginable car accident scenario: head-on collisions, T-bone collisions, rear-end collisions, drunk driving cases, semi-truck cases, and motorcycle accidents.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, loss of income, physical and emotional pain and suffering.  If you have permanent scarring or an impairment of your body, you may be entitled to compensation for those damages as well.  There may also be punitive damages available to punish the driver or company for causing the accident, and to deter others from behaving in a similar manor.

Cell phone and texting distractions

Cell phone calls and texting while driving has become a huge problem.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has determined that most drivers will answer a call while driving and most will continue to drive after answering.  About 2 out of 10 drivers (18%) report that they have sent test messages or e-mails while driving; about half (49%) of those 21 to 24 years old report doing so.  More than half believe that using a cell phone and/or sending a text message/e-mail makes no difference on their driving performance, yet as passengers, 90% said they would  feel very unsafe if their driver was talking on a handheld cell phone or texting/emailing while traveling with them.

Here at Drescher Law Firm, LLC, we have seen a big increase in the amount of accidents caused by someone either using a cell phone or texting while driving.  Unfortunately, some of those accidents have resulted in serious injuries and death.  We are experienced in handling these cases.  If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, please feel free to contact us.

South Carolina had the highest percentage of traffic fatalities from drunk or impaired drivers in 2010, according to National Highways Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  When a drunk driver injures one of our clients, we aggressively go after them.  We pursue punitive damage to punish them and to deter others from driving drunk on our streets.  Driving drunk is dangerous and seriously injures and kills people every year in South Carolina.

Injuries from car accidents, including fatal injuries, are unfortunately common in South Carolina.  In fact, the 2010 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that a total of 810 people died in 2010 in South Carolina as a result of auto accidents.
