When you look at a car that has been in a crash, you might wonder how they made it out of there alive. These crashes can be so scary and result in such severe injuries that could potentially affect the person for the rest of their life. When you have been hurt this badly, you deserve compensation.
The most common injuries that we see in car accidents include:
If you want your case to be successful, you need to know that immediate medical care is the top priority. You have to see a doctor as soon as you possibly can in order to receive treatment. When you are there, be sure to express every concern and point out everything that is in pain. They will be able to take extensive notes about your injuries and prescribe what needs to be prescribed so that you can get better.
When you have these notes from your doctor, we use them as evidence to show the insurance company how badly their insured hurt you and that they are liable for all of these injuries.
We want to see you get treatment right away so that you start to recover as soon as possible. You can do a few things to start treatment. You might be taken to the emergency room or you might go to an urgent care facility. Just make sure that you go as soon as you possibly can.
You need to be educated about the South Carolina laws regarding car accidents, if you want to be able to receive compensation. Understanding that you need to get your case filed on time is a key part of this. State law mandates that you do this within three years of the accident.
These three years can seem like a very long time, but it is important that you do not wait to seek the help of a lawyer, as time is of the essence. As soon as possible is the best time to reach out to a lawyer to set up a free consultation with them.
If you do not file a claim within three years of the car accident, then you will no longer be eligible for compensation. Even if you wait until almost three years, a lawyer may not be able to put together a case in that time that would be successful. You need to file right away so that you can protect your evidence and take statements from your witnesses right away before they forget key details.
When you have a car accident case, there are some important dos and don’ts that you need to be aware of if you want the case to be successful. In almost every car accident, there is going to be someone who is partially or entirely responsible for causing the crash. This fault could be shared between all the parties involved or go solely onto one person.
When you have the insurance company who represents a liable party, they are going to try to do everything that they can to take the blame off of their insured party. Something that they may try to get from you is a recorded statement. They will call you and try to get you to give them this statement where they are trained to get answers from you that will hurt your case. If you say the wrong thing, they can throw away your case or reduce the compensation that they owe you. The best thing you can do is allow your lawyer to take over the communication.
