Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer After an Accident?
If you have suffered an injury in an incident such as a workplace accident or a car crash, you may be wondering whether you really need an attorney to handle your claim. The truth is: Any time you are going up against an insurance company, you are going up against a team of attorneys who fight claims like yours on a regular basis.

Compensation in a South Carolina Personal Injury Claim
In any personal injury claim, it is crucial to account for all your expenses and losses related to the accident. This includes losses you are expected to experience in the future as you cope with your injury.
Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, our team may demand payment for:
- Medical expenses, including those you may expect to have in the future
- Damage to your personal property, such as a motor vehicle
- Loss of income, including diminished future earning capacity if you are no longer able to work or return to the same job you had before the accident
- Disability or disfigurement
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Our team will work with our network of medical experts, financial professionals, and economists to determine what your long-term costs will be related to the accident. This process takes time because we need to have a full picture of what your recovery will look like.
If an insurance company approaches you with a personal injury settlement offer, do not sign or agree to anything without consulting our attorneys. Particularly in the days or weeks after a serious accident, the insurance companies will try to take advantage of injury victims who are feeling the financial strain. These initial offers will not amount to the full and fair compensation you deserve.
What Are the Time Limits for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in South Carolina?
South Carolina’s statute of limitations, or time limit for filing a claim, is three years from the date of injury in most personal injury cases. Although this can seem like a lot of time, it is important to remember that investigating and building a strong case can be complicated and time-consuming. Plus, insurance companies often employ delay tactics to push victims up against that deadline in hopes of avoiding having to pay a claim.
