How an Experienced Hopewell Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
After any type of accident, life can get overwhelming and challenging. Insurance papers must be filled out to file an insurance claim, and it can seem as if there’s an endless maze of paperwork. After the claim is filed, the insurance company may send an insurance adjuster.
They may ask for additional information about the accident and offer a quick settlement. It is crucial you don’t speak with an insurance adjuster without your attorney present. Adjusters are skilled negotiators, and you may inadvertently say something that negatively affects your case.
Many times, the first offer from an insurance company is not a fair offer. Insurance companies have experienced attorneys and insurance adjusters that represent their rights and protect their financial interests. You should have an experienced and compassionate attorney who works for you, too.
The process of recovering damages after an accident that was not your fault is not simple. You may be hospitalized or unable to leave your home from accident-related injuries. If negotiation with the at-fault party’s insurance company is not successfully resolved with fair compensation, you may choose to file a personal injury lawsuit.
It is important to note that in the state of South Carolina, the law limits the time you can file a lawsuit to three years after the injury. This is called the statute of limitations. This may seem like a long time, but gathering the data and evidence needed to support your claim takes time and energy. If you wait too long, you may run out of time to file a lawsuit.

What Type of Compensation Is Available?
The value of the injury claim can be limited by the amount of insurance the at-fault party carries. Even when medical expenses are higher, the insurance company does not pay out more. In some cases, your best option might be to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to pursue compensation for your accident-related losses.
If you were the victim of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation that covers your medical expenses. This includes medical bills that are related to the injury. Expenses that fall under this category include surgery, doctor visits, prescription medications, and medical specialists.
You may also be eligible for compensation for lost wages. These are damages that are paid for the time you missed work because of injuries related to the accident. You may pursue compensation to cover property damage that occurred during the accident and for pain and suffering associated with the injury.
