If you have been injured in a car accident in South Carolina, the law is designed to protect you. You could be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages from missed work, and sometimes punitive damages.
The tricky part is knowing how serious your case is and what it might be worth.
Do you have a case?
If you were hurt in a car accident, you should contact an experienced South Carolina car accident lawyer to find out whether or not you may be able to file an auto accident claim against the insurance company. An attorney can discuss with you the details of your accident and can help determine what your case may be worth.
Factors that go into determining whether or not you should pursue a lawsuit include:
- Who was at fault (which might not be immediately clear)
- Type and seriousness of injuries
- If the other driver is insured or has substantial assets
- The circumstances of the individual case
- Your pain and suffering
What a lawyer will do for you:
Working with an experienced attorney will help you understand your rights and how the legal process works.
A good South Carolina personal injury lawyer can evaluate your case and give you an estimate of its value based on medical expenses, pain and suffering, missed work and other factors.
Once the value of your claim is calculated, you can use it along with guidance from your attorney to determine whether or not pursuing a case could be more profitable than accepting an initial settlement offer from the insurance company.
Deciding to pursue a case…
You have a limited amount of time to pursue a legal case against the driver who hurt you. Don’t let your only chance to recover the damages you will need in order to manage your car accident injuries for the rest of your life pass you by.
