How to Read Your South Carolina Car Accident Report

If you were in a car accident in South Carolina, you will need to make sense of your accident report. As a service, we are providing a sample copy of the South Carolina Traffic Collision Report Form. We have highlighted sections that may be important if you need to seek compensation.

At McGowan, Hood & Felder LLC, our South Carolina car accident lawyers know that accident reports written by police officers typically are crucial evidence in an injury or wrongful death case. Your accident report may reveal how your accident occurred, who was at fault in the accident, and whether another driver was speeding, driving drunk or ignoring speed limits or traffic signals. For information on how to obtain your accident report, visit the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles website here.
