According to reports, the accident happened when 59-year-old Deputy Robert Cart was stopped on Highway 61 attempting to turn onto Plainview Road. He was then reportedly struck from behind by a woman driving 2010 Toyota Rav-4. Cart was in his marked patrol car at the time and wearing a seatbelt. He was transported to St. Francis Hospital to be treated, and his condition is unknown at this time.

Charleston Car Accident Attorney

When involved in a car accident, it is important to file an accident report. Although law enforcement officers in many locations may not respond to accidents unless there are injuries, drivers should file a state vehicle accident report, which is available at police stations and often on the Department of Motor Vehicles Web site as a downloadable file. A police report often helps insurance companies speed up the claims process. Use your cell phone's camera to document the damage to all the vehicles. Keep in mind that you want your photos to show the overall context of the accident. If there were witnesses, try to get their contact information; they may be able to help you if the at fault driver dispute your version of what happened. A good Charleston car accident lawyer will guide you through this stressful time. While car accident are not regular occurrences for most of us, they are for the personal injury attorneys.
