Increase Your Chances of Winning a Personal Injury Claim with a Car Accident Lawyer in Columbia
An auto accident can result in life-altering injuries. It can affect you both emotionally and financially. You may not be able to provide for your family as you were once able to do, and on top of that, you will have to fight a bureaucratic battle of red tape with your insurance company, the healthcare system, and others. However, you don’t need to face these hardships alone. The car accident lawyer
team at The Stanley Law Group of Columbia, South Carolina is ready to help you get the compensation that you need and deserve.
Car Accident Law in South Carolina
South Carolina is a “fault” state for auto accidents (also known as tort liability
). This means that whoever is at fault for the accident will end up paying for any injuries caused. In a “fault” state, the injured party has more options when it comes to filing the claim than in a “no-fault” state. Additionally, the injured party can file both a claim with his own or the other driver’s insurance company, as well as a lawsuit against the other driver in civil court.Compensation can be reduced by the amount of negligence a jury or judge believes you are responsible for in the accident that caused your own injury. Since the issue of negligence is what must be proved, the intervention of a car accident lawyer like the Stanley Law Group can make a difference in the amount of compensation that you receive in Columbia, South Carolina. We fully understand all car accident laws in South Carolina and can help you, whether you decide to settle in or out of court. Always remember that a police report of the accident should be made before claims of any kind can be filed.
Personal Injury Claims and Compensation
Each accident is a unique occurrence, and the compensation amount will depend on the severity of the accident injuries and the amount of damage caused. However, a personal injury claim can cover pain and suffering, wages lost from time off work, treatment for injuries and rehabilitation, and damage to property such as the automobile itself. The compensation amount increases if a limb is lost, if vision or hearing are lost, or if special therapy such as occupational or physical therapy is needed. The Stanley Law Group can help you determine how much you have lost as a result of the accident, and get you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.
