For your convenience, we have included a variety of resource pages with extensive details on our website which are relevant to our practice areas; you may find several of them useful to your individual case.

South Carolina currently has the 4th largest state-maintained road system in the nation, with more than 41,000 miles. Not only is our state a popular tourist destination, but the shipping and transportation industries make maximum use of our thoroughfares and their accessibility to the Port of Charleston, one of the deepest commercial ports in the world.
With so many open highways, rural roads and charming city streets on which to ride, a motorcyclist has much to enjoy in South Carolina. Not many adventures give you the feeling of freedom that you get from a motorcycle ride. However, it is critical that to stay focused on the world around you and make safety your uppermost concern.
When you or your loved ones have sustained injuries from a traffic accident on a South Carolina road, it can be confusing to know where to turn. The Investigating Officer will provide you with an FR-10 to submit to your insurance company. However, an FR-50 Police Accident Report is an important piece of evidence you need to obtain.
The FR-50 is not available at the scene of the collision; it is compiled by the officer back at the station and electronically filed. While speaking with dozens of Police Department records divisions, we found that almost every city or town in South Carolina has its own method for providing you with a Police Accident Report. We decided to spell out the details to start you off on the right track, just click on the link above and choose your city for clear instructions.
You can sign up to follow our blog, and receive alerts for new posts as they publish! There are driving tips for safe travels, ways to avoid the dangers of distracted driving, latest news you should know, community concerns, facts, and knowledge about South Carolina personal injury practices, precedents, and much more.
We don’t charge a cent for our educational eBooks because we want you to have easy access to information you have a right to know. Currently, there are eBooks about medical device cases and car accident claims. We plan to expand our library in the near future.
Auger & Auger strives to expand public awareness about their rights when it comes to injuries, accidental and otherwise. We hope you find numerous resources here which provide guidance, awareness, and solace.
