When Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you were involved in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you need to hire a personal injury attorney. This type of attorney focuses on cases involving accidents or injuries in which another party may be at fault, whether through negligence or intentionally. Personal injury cases are civil cases rather than criminal cases in which an individual sues another individual or company, typically for financial compensation.
If you need to hire a personal injury attorney, it is important that you act quickly. South Carolina has a statute of limitations, meaning there is a limited window of time for you to file a lawsuit. Legal cases can take significant time to prepare, so do not hesitate to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to begin the process.

What Types of Cases Can Evans Moore, LLC Handle?
Evans Moore, LLC represents clients in a variety of personal injury cases, including:
- Car Accidents – If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident that was not your fault, the party responsible could be an individual, such as another driver, or a company, such as a car manufacturer.
- Trucking Accidents – Accidents involving tractor-trailers can result in very serious and complicated cases. Not only are the injuries more severe, but there may be multiple parties with potential liability, including the truck driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, maintenance crew, and cargo loaders.
- Hospital Negligence – If you or a loved one were admitted to a hospital, you expect the medical professionals to help you get better, not make matters worse. If your hospital care worsens your condition, it can be very hard to determine which, if any, party is negligent or at fault – a doctor, a nurse, the hospital, faulty medical equipment, or no one.
- Worker’s compensation – If you were injured on the job, you expect your employer to do the right thing and pay for your care. Unfortunately, some employers will try to shirk full responsibility. Their insurance company may offer you compensation that is woefully insufficient for your recovery or they may deny your claim outright.
- Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse – Placing a loved one in a nursing home is a very difficult decision to make. You hope that the staff will treat them with the same care that you would, but sadly, that is not always the case. If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of negligence, abuse, theft, or fraud, you’ll want to do something about it.
- Product Liability – If you purchased a product that caused you or your family harm, you may have a product liability case against the product’s manufacturer or designer. These cases could involve a range of products, from simple household products to complex medical devices.
- Wrongful Death – If someone you love was killed in an accident caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of that person.
- Dram Shop/Victims of Drunk Driving – Establishments that serve alcohol are governed by “dram shop” laws. If you’ve been injured in an accident caused by someone who was served alcohol after they should have been cut off, the establishment that served them may be liable.
- Jail Misconduct – When you’re incarcerated, you still have some rights. If you’ve been injured because of unsafe conditions in the facility or have been mistreated by an employee, you may be owed compensation.

How much financial compensation am I entitled to?
