Pileups - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

If you've ever been driving on the highway while there are a lot of other vehicles around you, you can see just how easily something can turn disastrous. One wrong move by someone at the front of the pack can set off a chain reaction that can make you late for your destination at best and cause some serious injuries or death at worst. These types of accidents are often a mess when it comes to insurance as well, and that's the last thing that you want to have to worry about when you're trying to recover from any sort of injury. This is why having a good lawyer on your side is so important when you end up in a car accident, especially if it involves multiple people.

When you have a pileup, it can involve any number of vehicles of varying sizes. This is why you can see a headline that says “Four Car Pileup” or one that says “Pileup Involving 132 Vehicles” when something happens. These accidents happen all year round, but are especially common in the winter when snow and ice cover the roads. They are always scary to see, and even worse to be involved in. They also remind us quickly why knowing who to turn to is important before something like this happens. After all, these types of things are never planned, so it can be stressful to find someone who can help you while you're also trying to recover and get back to your normal life.

Driving in the dark is not the easiest thing to do. Even if your vision is perfect, things can throw you off at night the way they never would during the day. There are any number of things that can make a simple nighttime drive dangerous. While good conditions can help, any amount of rain or fog or other weather can reduce your visibility and when that happens, it doesn't take long for things to go wrong. When you are driving at night, there are a few things that you always want to do to make sure that you're being safe. Unfortunately, not everyone else on the road take the same care.

When you are driving around at night, the biggest problem is always going to be visibility. While headlights are helpful, they only do so much. You can't see things outside of your headlight beams like you can in the daylight, so it is much easier for dangers to dart out from the side of the road. Things like deer and other animals are quick, so not having any warning on them can definitely test your driving ability. This is why speed is also important to monitor while you're driving around in the dark.

The other problem with headlights is that other people to use theirs too. If someone is driving a dark colored car, it can be hard to see it at night. If you have a black cat or dog and have tried to walk around at night, you can understand the problem. If someone has their lights off, it can be extremely dangerous because you probably won't see them until it is too late. We know that you don't have control over anyone else, but making sure that you have your lights on at all times is a great way to ensure that you are doing your part to prevent a crash.

If you were in a car accident that occurred at night due to someone else's negligence, give Wayne Hardee a call. He has decades of experience with car crashes and will do everything he can to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. It is important to have a good legal firm on your side, and you are lucky enough to have one right in your area. Give us a call and see how much of a difference Wayne Hardee can make for your case!

Minor Accidents - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

There are so many different kinds of car crashes that there are different terms for how severe the damage is. For example, if a vehicle is completely ruined and it's easier to scrap than save, we use the term “totaled.” Not every crash will leave a car totaled, but many will still cause damage. Sometimes this is a dented door or a broken windshield. These types of problems often mean that people are hurt, but not severely. Other times, you will only have a small dent in the bumper or a scratch along the side. These are generally referred to as “fender bender” accidents. While it is very possible that someone can walk away without being injured, this unfortunately isn't always the case.

Fender benders can be sneaky, because they seem so minor. This means that it can look like a small issue and you don't really think too much about it. Unfortunately, things aren't always what they seem. Even a light bump can cause pain and other medical issues depending on other factors. This is why you always hear the advice that no matter what happens or how you feel after an accident, you should go to the doctor and get checked out. It isn't uncommon for an impact that doesn't cause damage to the vehicles involved to still result in an injury. Even something as seemingly small as a pinched nerve can change someone's entire life depending on their career and their role in their family and community. These issues can continue to impact someone's future for years as well. It all depends on how the person moved during the actual collision. It is important to remember that just because a car doesn't look damaged doesn't mean everyone inside fared the same.

Kids in Crashes - Greenville Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

Car accidents are scary. This is a fact that everyone can pretty much agree on, especially if they have been in one themselves. It is not uncommon to hear that someone has developed Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from a crash, especially depending on the severity of the injuries, or if there was a death that happened during the accident. When you are in an accident, there is more than just the physical factor that needs to be considered, but this is especially true when the crash involves children.

We obviously never want to hear about anyone being hurt in a car crash, and much less so kids, but it does unfortunately happen. This means that we really do need to talk about it, and more importantly, what you can do if it happens to you. When there are kids involved with anything, emotions will automatically run higher, so it's a good idea to have someone that can look at things from a more removed position and hopefully a more practical side of the situation. Although it is difficult for anyone to do so, making sure that you can separate your emotions from what you're trying to do can help when you are dealing with something like a car crash.

If you have children or care for kids on a regular basis, you know just how difficult it can be to care for them under the best of circumstances. Adding something into the mix like an accident can throw everything off of the very delicate balance you constantly try to strike. If they are hurt or scared, kids can become harder to deal with. If you were injured, it can seem almost impossible to care for both of you. This is why having a good support system is invaluable after something like as a car accident occurs.

If you were in a crash that involved children, give Wayne Hardee a call right away. He has decades of experience working with victims of car crashes and will work to get you the compensation you deserve. If you have children that were involved in the crash, you have enough to worry about. Let Wayne Hardee handle the legal side of things so you can focus on what really matters. We know how hard it can be, but we will help you every step of the way. Call us today and see how we can help your case!
