Frequently Asked Questions

When someone suffers from an accident, it is our goal to mitigate the effects of the injuries and loss. If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury, we want to defend and get you the support and protection you deserve. Below are some frequently asked questions for you to review. 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:

  1. The negligent party has a duty to do or not do something
  2. There is a breach of that duty by the negligent party
  3. The negligent party is the cause and proximate cause of your damages
  4. 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.

My attorney James Moore goes the extra mile for clients and I highly recommend Mr Moore. He is always available for his clients.


Honest and dedicated.


Amazing attorneys who will work very hard to make sure justice is served and that everything runs as smoothly as possible.


I recently retained Mr. James Moore to represent me in an accident involving a trucking company. He settled the case in a timely and professional manner, and i couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. I would recommend him and the firm, with the highest regards, to anyone needing legal representation.


God Bless James Moore & Scott Evans for the work they do – fighting for those that cannot speak for themselves, those that are pushed aside and thrown away, those that do not have a voice, those that are true victims.


James and Scott’s personal attention and responsiveness are attributes that made them really stand out. Their preparedness and dedication to a favorable outcome was exceptional. They are both genuinely good people who care for the well-being of their clients.


Professional while also being engaging. Walked family through tough experience and was knowledgeable calming voice. Very glad we hired.

Jenn (on behalf of her father)

After suffering a tragic loss, I went to several law firms looking for someone to help with some sort of settlement from the family of the person who caused the loss. After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client. I am grateful for the Evans Moore law firm and will recommend them to anyone who would find their representation useful.


Scott Evans handled cases for my daughter and me in the last few years with great results. He is professional, knowledgeable, caring and provides comfort for his clients during their hard times. Office staff at Evans Moore is terrific, always helpful when I called and a great asset to the firm. Should i need legal help in the future I will call Evans Moore.


I retained James Moore of Evans Moore Law firm in regards to traffic accident in which I was involved. The expert advice, legal support and personal attention Mr. Moore provided during a stressful time and unfavorable situation was unparalleled. Not only was the issue resolved swiftly, but Mr. Moore went out of his way to keep me updated on all matters during the process. The next time I’ll need to call ‘my lawyer,’ as they say, I’ll know exactly who to call. Thanks again to Mr. Moore and the entire Evans Moore Law Firm for your support!
