Wrongful Death and Survival Damages

Act Quickly to File a Sumter, SC Personal Injury Lawsuit
State laws give us a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party liable for your injuries. In most cases, you have three years from the date that your accident occurred to file and properly serve a lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries. However in some circumstances – such as claims against medical providers or the State or Federal Government – this time period can be even shorter. If you do not take proper legal action before these deadlines, you may not be able to file a lawsuit and the person that is liable for your injuries will not be held accountable.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible after you have been injured. We can get to work identifying the liable party and gathering evidence to help you build a solid case, and, if necessary, we can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf to preserve your rights.
