Offering Representation To Victims Of Auto Accident Injuries
Driving a car is a necessary method of transportation for many South Carolina residents. Unfortunately, the National Highway Safety Administration often ranks South Carolina drivers as some of the worst in the nation. In fact, South Carolina is ranked number one when it comes to traffic fatality rates.
Statistically, most drivers will experience a hazardous motor vehicle accident at least once in their lives. Serious car accidents can lead to severe and debilitating injuries that may require intensive medical treatments and expensive long-term care. It’s not unusual for victims to have difficulty affording medical bills for their treatments, especially if they’re unable to work due to their injuries.

Negotiating With Insurance Companies On Your Behalf
Your accident claim or personal injury lawsuit may cost the defendant’s insurance company a lot of money. Unfortunately, insurance companies often employ questionable tactics to mislead a plaintiff into compromising their claim. For example, insurance companies aren’t above recording phone calls and tricking plaintiffs into saying information that may sabotage the integrity of their cases.
Insurance companies know that personal injury and car accident attorneys fight tooth and nail to pursue maximum damages for their clients. Because of this, a rival insurance company may try to save money by pressuring you into settling your case before you can hire effective legal representation.
At first glance, it may seem convenient to accept the lump sum and not have to worry about dealing with future legal proceedings. However, when you settle with an insurance company, you sign a waiver that limits or eliminates your ability to pursue compensation in the future. Medical issues resulting from a car accident, such as brain injuries, are sometimes not immediately apparent. The amount a plaintiff receives in a settlement is often not enough to cover the full extent of their actual medical and financial needs after a car crash.
The priority of an insurance company is, first and foremost, to maximize its profits and defend its interests. Before you file a claim, it’s important to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
