In the wake of a serious accident, victims are often overwhelmed by the physical and financial consequences that stem from their injuries.

Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you have been the victim of an accident caused by someone else, you should not be left to cope with your injuries on your own. Taking legal action can be a big step for many people, especially those who haven’t previously needed the help of an attorney. Though it may seem intimidating at first, your legal team will walk you through the process and keep you informed. Taking the first step to getting in touch with a lawyer is often the most difficult.
Though the damage stemming from each situation differs, many accident victims can be tempted to seek the compensation that they need on their own. However, the amount of compensation that you will be able to secure without the help of an experienced lawyer is often significantly less then what a lawyer could help you obtain. Especially for devastating accidents, it is always best to entrust your case to a capable team of injury lawyers. A skilled lawyer will advocate for you every step of the way, making sure that you are positioned to receive the financial award that your situation deserves.
Additionally, having a team of lawyers behind you can take other, more administrative burdens off of your hands. With a lawyer helping you, not only will you be able to pursue much-needed financial resources, but they can help handle paperwork, insurance disputes, and other time consuming, often confusing, obstacles for you, leaving you to focus on recovering from your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most potential personal injury claimants have never pursued a lawsuit before, and therefore have numerous questions about the process. To help ease your stress, we have compiled the answers to some of the questions we hear most frequently at our office below.
How Much Does an Injury Lawyer Cost?
If you have been injured in an accident, you are likely dealing with serious expenses already. Steep medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage can all add additional financial stress. The lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC understand the financial strain that accidents can cause, so we don’t collect payment unless we win. In the rare cases where we are unable to secure compensation for you, you pay us nothing. If we are successful in recovering the resources that you need, we only collect a percentage of the reward, and the rest goes to you. In the meantime, we will cover all the upfront expenses associated with your case ourselves.
When Should I File a Personal Injury Claim?
The amount of time allotted to accident victims varies from state to state. In South Carolina, victims have up to three years to file an injury claim. This limit serves as a protection for the party responsible. The person or company responsible for an injury are only open to legal action for a limited window of time, so it’s important to take action as soon as possible. Though the limitation to file a claim is three years, your case is not legally required to be settled or resolved within that period of time, just started. In the event that you tragically lose a loved one in an accident, you have three years from the date of their death to file a wrongful death claim. This date may be different from the date of their accident.
How Much Compensation Am I Eligible For?
The amount of compensation that you are eligible to receive depends entirely on the specific factors of your case. Laws in South Carolina are in place to cap the amount that you are eligible to receive in some instances. For example, damages for medical malpractice cases in South Carolina are capped at $350,000 for pain and suffering and $1.05 million for financial losses.
In South Carolina, there is also a cap for punitive damages regarding injury cases. Punitive damages are an additional financial reward to the plaintiff designed to further punish the responsible party to deter them from making the same mistake in the future. Punitive damages are capped at $500,000 or three times of the actual damages, whichever is greater.
Of course, depending on the seriousness of your case, these caps may or may not apply, and a lawyer can evaluate your situation and help give you a sense of how much compensation you are eligible for.
What Information Will My Lawyer Need to Begin?
If you have been involved in an accident, collecting all of the documentation associated with your accident and injury will be incredibly valuable to your lawyer. This documentation can include but isn’t limited to medical bills, insurance records, and accident reports. Depending on the specific factors of your case, a lawyer can help you understand exactly what they need to proceed. In some instances, a lawyer can help you recover documentation that you may not have held onto during the course of your injury.
