You don’t have to worry about filing paperwork on your own, because we handle all aspects of the legal process. We also communicate with all parties involved in your accident—including insurance companies and other lawyers.
Determining Liability in Your Car Accident Case
Winning compensation for you requires us to determine fault for your crash. Our investigation may involve securing evidence that shows how another party’s negligent actions caused your injuries and other damages. A police report may indicate fault for the crash, but we do not rely solely on this report to prove fault.
We may interview eyewitnesses, secure traffic camera video, and gather other documentation that establishes fault. Your car accident lawyer in Anderson, SC may also obtain your medical records to provide proof of the extent of your injuries and how they’ve impacted your life.
Our thorough approach enables us to build a well-supported, well-documented claim on your behalf.
You May Qualify for Compensation If an Uninsured Motorist Caused Your Accident
When a driver hits your car and does not have auto insurance, you may wonder who is going to pay the repairs to get you back on the road. You may ask the same question when a driver hits your car and leaves the scene of the accident.
If either scenario has happened to you, you may use your uninsured motorist (UM) coverage to pay for your damages. UM coverage protects you when a driver who does not have auto insurance causes an accident resulting in property damage and/or physical injuries. UM also applies to hit-and-run accidents.
Your Anderson car accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages from your UM policy. Call us at 864-729-4888 to find out more.
Recoverable Damages in a Car Accident Case
We go over all your specific recoverable damages based on the circumstances of your car accident. Some of the recoverable damages in Anderson, SC, car accident cases include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Ambulance transportation costs
- Lost wages
You may also pursue non-economic damages such as pain and suffering from your car accident injury. If you lost a loved one in a car accident, we can help you pursue damages in a wrongful death action.
We Can Negotiate Your Car Accident Claim for You
Auto insurance companies prefer saving money over paying out claims. So, do not be surprised if the insurer for the at-fault driver tries to minimize your car accident claim and offers a low settlement.
We do not back down when we get low settlements. We stand up on behalf of our clients and negotiate for the full and fair compensation you deserve.
In some cases, we may even take the case to trial if that’s what it takes to get fair compensation. We work on a contingency fee basis, so you do not pay us any attorney fees unless and until you recover compensation.*
