Accidents, injuries, and illnesses can strike at the most inopportune times– right when you are the most mentally, logistically, and financially vulnerable. Though the more immediate physical and emotional trauma of an accident will always take precedence, as you may know, the financial consequences of an accident will also eventually need to be addressed.

Contact us at (843) 995-5000 to discuss your rights and the specifics of your situation today.
How do I Know Whether or Not I Have a Claim?
Whether or not you have a claim, you should protect your rights and call a lawyer. You don’t want to be left out high and dry because you thought you might not have a claim. Even if you’re unsure if this applies to your situation, our attorneys will review the details of your case at no cost to you to determine if you do have a personal injury claim.
In South Carolina, the courts have adopted a modified comparative negligence rule. As long as you were less than 50% at fault, then you are entitled to compensation. While you may not be able to recover the full 100% needed, at least there is something to assist you with your loss.
Personal injury claims have four elements:
- The negligent party has a duty to do or not do something
- There is a breach of that duty by the negligent party
- The negligent party is the cause and proximate cause of your damages
- You suffer damages
A personal injury lawyer will compare the details of your situation to these elements to determine whether or not a claim exists. Most personal injury claims do not become lawsuits meaning they are settled outside of court, which means this whole process is a lot more cost beneficial to you.
What Monetary Compensation am I Entitled to Recovering?
Personal injury victims are entitled to recover compensation for all losses and expenses that have resulted from the accident. The most common include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, out of pocket expenses, and any other damage that is associated with the incident.
What Should I do After an Accident?
Immediately following an accident, see your doctor and get a thorough examination. Even if at the scene you don’t feel injured or sore, the pain may arise later on. Most experience significant pain after the emergency.
Next, call an attorney after your accident to discuss your claim. There is limited time in which a claim can be brought. Do not lose out on a claim because you were barred by time. At Evans Moore, LLC, we provide a free consultation to review the details of your case. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain.
