If possible, try to collect evidence at the scene.
At Crantford Meehan, we understand you have questions. We can answer your questions fully after your free consultation, but here are questions our clients often ask and our answers:
A personal injury claim could stem from an incident at work or another business, someone’s home, a traffic accident, medical malpractice, human or animal assaults and attacks, or from a product that doesn’t work as it should or was advertised.
Most personal injury claims across the country are due to vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, traffic accidents are common in South Carolina, where one occurs every 3.7 minutes. Charleston County has one of the highest rates of vehicle collisions in the state.
Workplace accidents are also common in South Carolina. In 2019, more people suffered workplace illnesses or injuries in hospitals and nursing homes in 2019 than in metal or food manufacturing.
Personal injury victims often suffer back and neck injuries, cuts and bruises, broken bones, head injuries, and even internal injuries and paralysis.
A personal injury claim is a civil case, not criminal, which means the burden is on you, the injured person, to show that the other party is at fault. This often requires proving that the other party was negligent in some way, and failed to exercise adequate care and caution to prevent you from being injured. If this can be shown, they would likely be responsible for compensating you for your injuries, medical bills, replacement of damaged property, lost wages, and more.
Insurance companies will often contact victims in the hours and days after an injury accident. They might try to get you to accept a low-ball settlement offer or might try to get you to say something that could diminish your injury claim. It’s important to have an attorney on your side to protect your rights and interests. Call us before you speak to anyone else.
The experienced personal injury lawyers at Crantford Meehan work on a contingency-fee basis. That means our consultations are free, and you won’t owe us anything for our services until we secure compensation for you.
The South Carolina statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is three years from the date of your incident. While this might sound like a long time, it is actually a relatively short window compared to how long the process of seeking compensation could take. Don’t wait until it is too late to hire a lawyer to represent you.
