Personal Injury FAQ
Q:How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
A:All states have set deadlines for individuals who wish to file personal injury claims. In South Carolina, individuals have three years from the date of injury to file a claim and begin legal proceedings. The statute of limitations begins only after an injury becomes known. While most injuries become known quickly after the accident, some injuries date time to appear. If you attempt to file a claim after the statute of limitations has passed, the court will most likely refuse to hear your case, resulting in you missing your opportunity to achieve justice.
Q:Can I File a Claim After My Loved One Passed Away?
A:Immediate family members or those who were financially dependent on an individual that passed away in an accident caused by negligence may be able to seek compensation for damages by filing a wrongful death claim. In addition to recovering damages like medical bills, lost income, and mental anguish, family members can also be compensated for funeral and burial expenses.
Q:Should I Talk to the Insurance Company After an Accident?
A:Insurance companies strive to make and save as much money as possible, meaning that they will do what it takes to undermine your claim to avoid having to pay you after your accident. They can evade liability altogether or even attempt to put some of the blame on the victim. Hiring a personal injury attorney who can handle correspondence with insurance companies is beneficial to your claim – talking on the phone with an adjuster can be risky because you may say something they can use against you. If you do need to speak with an insurance company, make sure to avoid saying your opinions, expressing your emotions, or admitting fault.
Q:What Damages Can I Recover After an Accident?
A:Our team can recover damages you may have accrued from your accident, which includes treatment for injuries. Among the medical bills you may have, we can help you pay for expenses like hospital stays, surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and more, as well as lost wages and future earning capacity, property damage like car repairs, and even non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
