Personal Injury Lawyer in Charleston, SC: Car Accidents, Slips & Falls
If your are injured, you will need things. You will need medical care, lost wages and repairs to property. You will be limited by pain and suffering losses in your everyday life, and will need help recovering and getting the things that you need. To get these things you will need help.
Dealing with insurance companies pits you against professional adjusters and lawyers that serve the profit of huge corporations.
Insurance companies are regularly the most profitable corporations in the United States. They did not get that way by being generous or sympathetic. They charge money for premiums and do their best to keep as much as possible. If you are lucky, you will only have to deal with them a few times in your life, and if you are extremely lucky NEVER. But, you will not have the repeated experience to develop the skills needed to fight these giants.
We and our associates have done it repeatedly for decades. If you’ve been injured, you need the law to protect you, to help you, and to support your family.
South Carolina Attorney Conrad Falkiewicz will see to it that the law protects you.
I was hurt in a car accident, what should I do First?
The first thing you should do after any serious accident is to seek complete medical care. You may not know the extent of your injuries.
Not too long ago, I met with an individual who felt completely fine a week after his accident. When I told him to go for further examination, it turned out that he had a broken neck (fractured vertebra) that luckily had not yet displaced. He was extremely surprised and could have had devastating problems because he did not know the extent of his injury.
Do not assume that you are not hurt until you have had all of the appropriate examinations.
After seeing medical care, what should I do next?
The second thing you should do after an accident is obtain all documentation, including police reports, emergency room reports and, if possible the names of any witnesses of your accident.
Preserving all of the information related to your accident is essential to a successful claim.
What is the final thing I should do after an accident?
The third and final thing is to hire a professional, South Carolina lawyer, to help you recover what you should be entitled to receive.
Since I have insurance do I need to have a lawyer?
If the other person was at fault, their insurance should pay for your injuries. The other person’s insurance should pay for the damages to your automobile.
Unfortunately, many people do not have sufficient automobile insurance or any automobile insurance at all. If that’s the case, you may have to access your own coverage through your under insured or uninsured motorist coverage. You may also have to use your own health insurance for medical treatment.
Ultimately, the person that is at fault should be required to compensate you. However, you may need legal representation to get that compensation.
If the other person’s insurance company has offered to send me a check right away should I take it?
Speedy settlements usually benefit of the insurance company, not the person who has been injured.
Insurance companies exist to make money. They make money by charging for insurance coverage and for not paying out as much money as they collect.
If they can save money by paying you fast, possibly before you even know how injured you are, then they will have made a smart business move. But, that smart business move hurts you.
Hiring an attorney who knows how to collect the information and how to present it both in negotiations and at a trial will ensure that you obtain a fair and justifiable payment for something that was not your fault.
Without legal expertise, you may not receive all of the compensation owed to you which is why I offer free first consultations for accident cases to determine whether we can help you.
