You Can Still Get a Car Accident Settlement if You Weren't Wearing a Seatbelt When You Got Hit- and South Carolina Law Actually Helps You

If you aren't wearing a seatbelt and get hurt in a car accident, you might wonder if you still qualify for a settlement. In this brief video, Spartanburg, South Carolina car accident attorney Rob Usry lays that worry to rest and tells you why South Carolina law actually helps you in this situation.

Hey folks, here's a question we get sometimes from our car accident clients. “If I wasn't wearing a seat belt can I still get a settlement?"

Absolutely.  As long as the crash wasn't your fault. If the at-fault driver looked out for your safety your seatbelt wouldn’t matter. You're eligible for all the compensation supported by the evidence. And let me make you feel a little bit better, South Carolina law makes failing to wear a seat belt inadmissible at trial.

So now that we've covered your first, biggest worry you can move on to other questions. To get them answered fill out a get help now form on our website or just call me at 864-582-0416. I thank you for thinking about this with me and I hope I see you soon.
