What is my South Carolina personal injury case worth? (Part B)

While an insurance adjuster may come up with their own idea of what your case is worth, by securing the help of a Summerville personal injury attorney you can have an experienced advocate on your side who understands the law and can fight for the compensation you are entitled to.  

Insurance companies want you to settle quickly and to settle for less than what you deserve. This is why an attorney can best help determine what your case may be truly worth. 

Choosing to work with a Summerville personal injury attorney can help you not only address the full measure of your losses as the result of your accident, but they can help negotiate a settlement with the insurance company. If negotiations fail, your attorney can take your case to court and defend your legal rights at trial.  

Many individuals mistakenly think that they can settle their South Carolina personal injury claim on their own, even when they don't have any knowledge of South Carolina personal injury law or what types of compensation they may be entitled to.

Additionally, insurance companies spend huge amounts of money to specially train their insurance adjusters to trick you into making statements that they can use to deny or reduce your claim. They are also trained to get you to sign paperwork releasing all of your medical records (not just those pertaining to your accident) among other tactics that can prevent you from receiving a settlement that will address your current and future medical needs. 

By sitting down with a Summerville personal injury attorney you can discuss all of the facts surrounding your South Carolina personal injury claim. You may not only be entitled to receive compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages but you may also be eligible to receive additional compensation for your emotional distress or pain and suffering.

All of these factors will affect the outcome of your South Carolina personal injury claim. Considering how much is at stake, consulting with a Summerville personal injury attorney is the best way to ensure that all of your legal options are explored and discussed before you even begin the claims process.
