Georgetown Reckless Driving Accident Lawyers

Enough car accidents occur because of human error and unpreventable circumstances; when someone drives recklessly, they are only adding preventable risk. Reckless driving is irresponsible and hazardous, which is why South Carolina has strict rules regarding the act. According to the South Carolina Code of Laws, a reckless driving offense “relates to any person driving any vehicle in such a manner to indicate a willful disregard for the safety of persons or property.” Driving in such a negligent manner endangers the lives of everyone surrounding the offender, and can result in tragedy for many.

For those that have been the victim of a reckless driving accident, the consequences can be devastating. Accidents can cause physical pain, mental anguish, trauma, and financial burden. At the Evans Moore, LLC, we know how stressful a car accident is, especially when it occurred at no fault of your own. We are dedicated to guiding our clients through the strenuous legal process and getting them the restitution they deserve so that they can make the quickest and smoothest recovery possible.

Reckless Driving in South Carolina

In South Carolina, reckless driving carries many penalties. Offenders will receive 6 points added to their license, with 12 points equaling suspension. They can also face fines up to $200 or even up to 30 days in jail. Repeat offenders face a three-month license suspension. Reckless driving comes in many forms. Some common examples of reckless driving include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Dozing off at the wheel
  • Running stop signs or red lights
  • Not having proper lights on your vehicle
  • Failing to signal turns
  • Texting and other distracted driving
  • Tailgating
  • Excessive speeding

While reckless drivers do face consequences for their negligence, their penalties will not help to cover the pain and suffering you, as the victim, are feeling after an accident. That is why it is important that you contact a reckless driving accident lawyer. At the Evans Moore, LLC, we firmly believe that reckless drivers need to be held accountable for the pain they caused you, and we are devoted to fighting for justice.

Jenn (on behalf of her father)

After suffering a tragic loss, I went to several law firms looking for someone to help with some sort of settlement from the family of the person who caused the loss. After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client. I am grateful for the Evans Moore law firm and will recommend them to anyone who would find their representation useful.


Scott Evans handled cases for my daughter and me in the last few years with great results. He is professional, knowledgeable, caring and provides comfort for his clients during their hard times.
