If you are reading this page, chances are you or someone you know has suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another.
You see, victims of personal injury cases often find themselves left in a situation that feels hopeless. From being overwhelmed with medical bills to dealing with physical or emotional injury, the strain is usually more than they can bear.
It can feel very unfair that you are dealing with a financial crisis especially when the accident wasn’t even your fault!
What’s more, the insurance company often times works against you every step of the way in an effort to avoid compensating you for your pain, suffering and financial losses.
Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

How Do Personal Injury Cases Work?
Whether you were hurt in an accident at work, injured in a car accident, or were the victim of a slip and fall accident, you need to know what to expect.
While each case is different, there is a pattern that most personal injury cases follow:
- Injury — You suffer some type of injury that was caused by someone else as a result of their negligence, intentional action, or carelessness.
- Representation — Search for an experienced South Carolina personal injury attorney you can trust.
- Demand/Complaint — Depending on the type of case, your attorney will send a demand letter or file a complaint in court.
- Discovery — Each party will request relevant evidence about the case, like witness statements and accident reports.
- Settlements — Negotiations may occur at any stage of the process, but most likely begin after discovery.
- Trial — Your case will go to trial if you haven’t reached an agreement.
- Appeals — At the end of trial, the losing party may file an appeal.

When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Attorney?
Often times victims who’ve been personally injured wait too long to contact an injury attorney.
Don’t let that happen to you.
Time is of the essence… here’s why:
In South Carolina you have three years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim. While this sounds like plenty of time, there is a lot of work that goes into this type of case, such as preparing court filings, interviewing witnesses, tracking down health insurance documents, and much more.
Your personal injury attorney needs to immediately begin investigating your case – the evidence that you need to make your claim, including witness statements and physical evidence from the scene, will be more difficult to collect as time goes by.
