Personal Injury Law

Personal injury litigation involves suing someone to recover the costs of injuries caused by their negligence. These costs can be concrete, such as costs of medical bills resulting from the injury, or more abstract, such as the costs of pain and suffering. There is an understandable level of apprehension about the litigation process for accident victims and their families, particularly when the victim has been seriously injured or killed. Under such circumstances, it is critically important to hire a lawyer to ensure that victims and their families are fairly compensated.

Things you should know about Personal Injury Litigation

  • If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else you should consult a lawyer before signing anything from an insurance company.
  • Sometimes hiring a lawyer to negotiate with the party who caused the accident or their insurance company can result in a just and reasonable settlement without filing a lawsuit.
  • You only have a limited time to file a lawsuit to recover for damages for injuries caused by another’s negligence.  Therefore, it is important to consult a lawyer early on to ensure your interests are fully protected.
  • One of the most frequently asked questions by clients is how long it takes to get a case to trial. Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to that question. In South Carolina, a case is typically not even eligible for trial until one year after the lawsuit is filed.
