Charleston Injury Attorney Protecting the Rights of the Injured in South Carolina

If you are involved in an accident and suffer damages, you may be legally entitled to compensation from the negligent and responsible parties or their insurance carriers. Although it may be tempting to fight insurance companies on your own, the simple truth is that they do not have your best interests at heart. In fact, their ultimate goal is to protect their own bottom line, which means adjusters are incentivized to deny claims or diminish their value.

This is where a Charleston personal injury attorney can help. You deserve compensation for your injuries and damages. You need to be confident that you are receiving effective legal representation to work toward your desired result in a personal injury accident claim.

Seeking Compensation for Accident-Related Damages in South Carolina

If you are in an accident, no matter what kind, you might sustain an injury. However, many people are not immediately aware that they have suffered harm and do not feel pain or other effects until hours or days later. It can be difficult to know what to do after being involved in an accident where you thought you weren’t harmed, only to realize later that you were actually injured. You may also have expensive bills associated with being harmed, which could include the costs of emergency medical services, emergency room visits, the expense of a follow-up doctor or specialist, or physical therapy and prescription medications. If these costs come out of your pocket, receiving compensation can be one of the only ways you will be able to regain financial security.

Returning to normal life after such an event can be challenging. At a confusing time like this, the last thing you will likely want to deal with is paperwork for your claim. Do not let an accident that could have been prevented or was not your fault cause you any additional turmoil. Leave the heavy lifting to us.

Why Hire a Charleston Personal Injury Lawyer?

A professional personal injury lawyer can make sure that the information on any accident-related paperwork is accurate, meaning that rejection of a claim is less likely. Thus, it is important to seek the services of an experienced Charleston accident attorney as soon as possible – preferably before you begin dealing with an insurance provider or adjusters. Your lawyer can protect your rights, preserve your best interests, and fight to maximize the value of your claim.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in South Carolina?

In accidents involving personal injury, time is of the essence. Retaining legal representation immediately is crucial because of the filing deadlines set by state law and insurance companies. The longer you wait to file a claim, the harder it will be for you to provide all the information necessary to prove your case.

In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years from the date of the injury. This means that after that three-year time limit elapses, victims will forfeit their right to pursue compensation. If the statute of limitations ends, it will be nearly impossible to receive compensation for the losses and damages you have suffered, so do not wait to get in touch with our firm.

A competent and experienced Charleston injury lawyer will know these deadlines and the statute of limitations associated with your case. They will be able to prepare the lawsuit and claim to tell your side of the story and make your voice heard.

When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney in Charleston, SC?

If you have sustained an injury due to the negligence of another person or business, have suffered emotional trauma after an accident, or are facing complex medical bills, it may be in your best interest to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. They can help ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your case and protect your rights throughout the process.
