The legal team of Auger & Auger has provided South Carolina ATV accident attorney services for ATV and quad accident victims for decades. One thing we know for certain is that the consequences of these crashes can be devastatingly life-changing.
Tragically, 2010-2013 U.S. statistics show that 32% of fatal ATV accidents occur on paved surfaces. Something visitors to our state should know (and our residents should remember) is that South Carolina restricts the use of ATVs on public roadways.
South Carolina has miles upon miles of public roadways, 76,067 miles to be exact, which sustain nearly 117,700 daily travel miles of trucks and automobiles. The steady use comes, in a great part, from the continuous transportation of goods from the Port of Charleston — which moved 2.14 million 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in 2017. Certainly, ATVs have little to no chance of driving accident-free amidst this kind of activity.
Though common sense would dictate that off-road vehicles belong off the beaten track, the practice of driving them on paved roads persists. Perhaps a few thoughts on the subject from a South Carolina ATV accident attorney will change a few minds and save some lives:
Please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone! It is truly advisable that you call a local South Carolina ATV accident attorney after a crash so that all the bases are covered. Our investigation team will be sent out to the scene to document the facts required to prove your claim; including witness interviews and inspection of the ATV and any other vehicles involved.
Keep in mind that all insurance companies must perform their own investigation, however, they are going to concentrate on minimizing their culpability and exposure to liability. Auger & Auger is well prepared to advocate for your rights and fight for the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
