Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do After a Personal Injury Accident?

When you are injured in an accident, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and flustered. Understanding what to do after an accident caused by negligence will help you pursue a personal injury claim later on. Always take photos of your injuries and the accident scene, and seek medical attention if you’re injured. Write down what happened while it is still fresh in your mind so you don’t forget critical details. If there are any witnesses to the accident, gather their contact information so you can use their statements later.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

While going to trial for a personal injury claim is always an option, most personal injury cases do not go to trial. Many personal injury claims are resolved through negotiations before the trial begins. Cases will often go to trial when the facts of the accident are questioned or when there is a contested legal issue. Working with a personal injury attorney is the best way to settle your case quickly and without paying fines and fees associated with a court trial.

How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

All personal injury cases are different and can be worth different amounts. However, there are ways you can approximate the total sum of your claim. In your personal injury case, you will likely ask for financial compensation for any damages you accrued because of the accident. Damages include medical treatment, lost wages, physical therapy, lost future income potential, and more. The total of these losses plus any other damages amounts to approximately what you can receive after a personal injury claim.

Can I Still Receive Compensation if I’m Partially At Fault?

You may have been in an accident where you partially share fault. This is very common in auto accidents where both drivers behave negligently. Fortunately, you can still recover compensation for your injuries and other damages if you were less than 51% at fault for the accident. South Carolina uses a modified comparative fault rule to award victims compensation in relation to the amount of fault they are responsible for after an accident. The insurance company or a jury will decide the amount of fault to assign to each party..

How Long Does a Personal Injury Lawsuit Take?

Because personal injury lawsuits are all different, they all have different timelines. Generally, lawsuits settled outside of court are much faster than lawsuits involving a trial. Similarly, any personal injury claims that involve large amounts of money often take longer, as the defendant and the insurance company will likely fight harder to avoid paying. The best way to expedite the personal injury lawsuit timeline is by working with an experienced personal injury lawyer who has your best interests in mind.

How Long Can I Wait Before Filing My Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations. This statute, which varies by state, determines how long you can wait before seeking compensation for a personal injury accident. In South Carolina, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. There are some exceptions to this rule, like if the defendant attempts to flee to avoid being served or if your injuries were not immediately obvious. In general, it is best to file your claim as soon as possible to avoid running out of time.

Do I Still Have a Case if I Don’t Feel Hurt?

It is normal to not feel injured directly after a negligent accident. When you are hurt, the body floods with adrenaline, which can block pain receptors in the brain. You may feel injured or notice new wounds a few hours (or even a few days) after the accident. It is always best to seek medical attention immediately after your accident, even if you do not feel injured. A medical professional will check you for underlying or internal injuries that may not be obvious from the outside.

What Should I Do if an Insurance Adjuster Calls Me?

After an accident, you will likely be contacted by an insurance agent. Generally, speaking with an insurance adjuster without legal representation is not a good idea. Insurance agents are looking for a way to deny your insurance claim so they can make more money. Even innocent-sounding statements could be used against you as a reason to deny your claim. If you are contacted by an insurance adjuster, give them the number of your personal injury attorney, and don’t speak to them yourself.
