The experienced trial lawyers at Cranton Meehan fight for Charleston car accident victims. The negligent driver’s insurance company adjuster may try to get you, the victim, to admit to some blame for the accident. Unfortunately, this may hurt your chances of getting the compensation you deserve.
At Cranton Meehan, if we cannot obtain a fair settlement from the insurance company, we will be ready to fight for you in court. We know how to build a strong compensation claim, and will be willing to battle for you at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
Our attorneys can answer your specific questions when we get the details of your case, but here are some questions our clients often have about car accidents and our answers:
Car accident victims often suffer back and neck injuries and soreness, head injuries, cuts and bruises, and broken bones. In severe cases, they can also suffer internal injuries, paralysis, and loss of limbs.
In many instances, the other driver could be liable, but it could also be the driver’s employer, the automobile manufacturer, or other parties.
It’s important you contact an experienced Charleston car accident attorney before you talk to anyone about the accident. It’s also crucial to contact a lawyer as soon as possible, since crucial evidence could be lost, cleaned up, or destroyed in the days and weeks after the crash. Hire a lawyer as soon as possible so they can secure the critical evidence and begin building a strong compensation claim for you.
At Crantford Meehan, we represent clients on a contingency-fee basis. That means you don’t pay anything upfront, and we don’t get paid until we win for you.
In most cases, South Carolina law requires you to file a lawsuit within three years following the car accident. If you cannot reach a settlement with the other party’s insurer and fail to file a personal injury lawsuit within this time frame, the court would be barred from hearing your case.
