HOW CAN A COLUMBIA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER HELP ME GET COMPENSATED?

You’re Hurt After the Accident

The injuries and damage you or your loved one have suffered because of the accident can be severe. That can sap your time, energy, enjoyment of life, and well-being during your lawsuit, leaving you with the need to get compensated for the injuries resulting from the accident.

Your Responsibilities Are Overwhelming

It’s not an easy situation to juggle your health, your family, and your lawsuit all at once. Without a personal injury lawyer’s help and knowledge, you may prioritize one, while sacrificing others, making it difficult to get justice while you try to handle your case.

You Need to Protect Your Rights

Without practical courtroom experience, you may not have the resources, information, and support you need to prove liability and win a successful case. Luckily, with legal representation from our lawyers, you don’t have to settle for less than the full amount of money you’re due from the defendant and the insurance company.

CLAIM PROCESS

SOUTH CAROLINA’S PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS PROCESS

When you’re injured in an accident, you can feel overwhelmed by the personal injury claim process, property damage, and mounting medical bills. When you’re not a legal professional, this can really get to your head and slow down recovering from your injuries. You deserve justice and respect for your rights, but how do you get it from the insurance companies (who often don’t seem to care, even if you’re one of their clients)?

If you’re struggling to take your first steps toward accident compensation and recovery, here’s what legal representation from a personal injury lawyer in our office can do for you and the outcome of your injury case.

GET MEDICAL TREATMENT

Even if you feel fine, seek out medical care after an accident. Injuries may take time to be noticeable, and your lawyer can use this evidence to get you compensated for your accident claim when you’re hurt by someone’s negligence, carelessness, or products.

PROVE LIABILITY FOR THE ACCIDENT

Before you file your claim, you need the right information: who’s responsible for your accident and injuries. Because this can get complex, reach out to a lawyer to handle determining liability for your claim and how to prove negligence.

KNOW YOUR CLAIM’S WORTH

If your accident resulted in injuries, financial loss, or pain and suffering, you may be due compensation for everything suffered. Our personal injury team of lawyers has the tools you need to both determine your needs and handle calculating your claim’s value.

SEEK COMPENSATION

Insurers and the at-fault party may be unwilling to pay maximum insurance settlements. You may instead need your lawyer to represent you in the courtroom to seek compensation on your behalf for your current and future expenses and suffering.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE A SOUTH CAROLINA PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

When you’re injured in South Carolina, your time limit is typically three years from the time of the accident. But you may have less time to sue for their negligence—speak with your lawyer about your options and the different factors involved with the statute of limitations.

WHAT COMPENSATION IS AVAILABLE IN A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

Your personal injury compensation may include both economic and non-economic damages—insurance compensation for all the current and future hardships you’ll suffer because of your injuries. These damages cover both the financial and emotional costs of your injuries and the accident, as well as lost wages.

WHAT IF I’M PARTLY AT FAULT FOR MY ACCIDENT?

Admitting fault for your accident to the police or an insurance company can yield negative consequences for your claim. If the at-fault party argues you were partly at fault, you may lose part or all your compensation. Because of this, you may need to call an injury attorney to protect your claim.

THE PERSON WHO INJURED ME ALSO BROKE THE LAW. CAN I STILL SUE?

If other people intentionally harmed you, they may be facing a criminal trial. But that doesn’t mean you can’t sue for personal injury. These are separate systems. But there are still restrictions on when you can file. Fortunately, our injury lawyers can use evidence from their trial and guilty verdicts to your advantage.

WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD AN ATTORNEY?

The lawyers at our law office provide legal service on a contingency fee basis. That means our pay is based on the compensation you receive when your accident claim is settled. If you don’t receive compensation after a verdict, you don’t have to pay for our legal services and counsel.

HOW DO I SUE FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?

Medical malpractice claims are a bit different from other types of personal injury cases. In the end, however, they're still caused by the negligence of others, leaving the victims with injuries, trauma, and damages. This is true whether the negligent party is a doctor, nurse, hospital, dentist, or pharmacist. While malpractice claims require substantial and extremely detailed evidence, the lawyers at our office can help you bring a claim and get compensated for what you've suffered.
