If you have been injured in an accident in South Carolina, a Charleston personal injury attorney can help your case in numerous ways. In addition to having the time and resources to build a strong case (which lets you focus on recovery), an attorney has years of legal knowledge and claims experience to bring to the table.
During your initial meeting with a Charleston personal injury attorney, an attorney will assess the important facts surrounding your accident in South Carolina. If it appears that you have a legitimate case, and you may be eligible to file a claim, then your attorney’s second task will be to estimate the value of your damages.
Once your damages have been evaluated, your Charleston personal injury attorney can notify your insurer that they are handling your case. Once notified, your attorney can advise you of any settlement offers you’ve been offered and begin communication with the insurance adjuster on your behalf. If an adjuster offers a settlement that is below the value of your damages, then your attorney can attempt to negotiate a higher settlement with the insurance company.
If an insurer refuses to give you the money that you deserve, then your Charleston personal injury attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit. In a lawsuit, your attorney can represent your interests in a formal court of law.
