If you have been injured in an accident in South Carolina, and your accident was the result of someone else's negligence, then you may be eligible for compensation in a South Carolina personal injury claim. To file a South Carolina personal injury claim, you should consider seeking the services of a Charleston personal injury attorney.

How a Charleston Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

When filing a South Carolina personal injury claim, an attorney can help you in a number of ways.

A Charleston personal injury attorney can:
 

  • help you understand the South Carolina personal injury claim process;
  • gather evidence that may pertain to your case, such as police reports and medical records;
  • analyze your insurance policy and that of any other party's, to see what coverage is available to pay for your damage;
  • investigate your case by interviewing witnesses, collecting information and evaluating physical evidence;
  • analyze the legal issues that may pertain to your case;
  • work with the insurance companies on your behalf;
  • communicate with the insurance adjuster to help you avoid falling for any insurance industry tricks that may damage your claim; and
  • estimate the value of your damages. 


In a South Carolina personal injury claim, your attorney can negotiate your compensation with the insurer. If the insurer refuses you the money that you deserve, then you may choose to file a lawsuit. In a personal injury lawsuit, your Charleston personal injury attorney can represent your legal interests in a formal court of law.
