If you have been injured in an accident in South Carolina, then there are some cases in which you may not need to hire a Charleston personal injury attorney.
Instances in which you may not need a lawyer include:
- cases where there was no injury and only property damage (these will require a property damage claim only);
- cases where you were not seriously injured or did not require medical attention for some time after the accident; and
- cases in which you were at fault for the accident in South Carolina (if you were more than 50% at fault for the accident you do not have a valid claim).
If, on the other hand, you were seriously injured in an accident in South Carolina, and you have suffered extensive property damage, then you may want to get the help of a skilled Charleston personal injury attorney. An experienced attorney can investigate your case and evaluate the value of the damages you have incurred.
A Charleston personal injury attorney can explain all of your legal options for seeking compensation, help determine liability, and work with you throughout the claims process.
