What To Expect When You Hire Louthian Law Firm P.A.

A personal injury lawyer on our team can take on each of your case’s challenges. We can handle it all for you, from the day-to-day necessities to the bigger picture. Let us take on the legal aspects of your case while you focus on your recovery.

Here’s what our lawyers can do for you:

Investigate Your Case and Gather Evidence

To build a solid case for compensation, we seek supporting evidence. Using the information we find, we aim to establish:

  • – Another party had an obligation to act with reasonable care.
  • – This party failed in that obligation.
  • – They caused your injuries.
  • – You suffered harm and various associated losses.

 

We work hard to build an evidence-based case, so the other party has limited opportunities to contest your right to compensation.

We use many sources in our efforts, including:

  • – Police reports
  • – Medical records
  • – Statements from your doctors

 

Our experience in the Columbia, South Carolina, area also works as an asset when we gather your case’s evidence. Our network of resources will allow us to build the strongest possible case for you.

Assess Your Damages

The losses and expenses you suffer could affect your life for months or even years.

Our attorneys can determine what you need to account for your:

  • – Medical expenses
  • – Lost earnings
  • – Pain and suffering
  • – Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • – Scarring and disfigurement
  • – Wrongful death-related damages, if you lost a loved one to their injuries

 

Depending on your case’s details, you could seek other damages beyond those listed here.

Manage the Claim or Lawsuit Process

Once we have evidence in hand, we’ll proceed with the financial recovery process. This stage takes time, preparation, and planning. When you partner with us, we’ll first strategize a legal approach based on your case’s unique details. We will then go ahead with either an insurance claim settlement or a lawsuit.

Our attorneys can use their experience and negotiation skills to pursue compensation. We work with the liable party’s insurance representatives and other lawyers, arguing your side of the story.

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.

If you have questions about what a personal injury lawyer does, we’ve got answers.

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.
