Personal Injury in South Carolina
Automobile accidents result in pain and suffering for all involved. These types of injuries are called personal injuries, and can mean anything from bumps and bruises to loss of limb or life. Personal injury can also mean lost wages or employment, and even hefty expenditures on medical care.
If you are involved in an automobile accident, it would be wise to contact an attorney specializing in personal injury, or tort, law. An experienced attorney can advise you, and many times the first consultation is free. Be sure to ask when you call to make an appointment.
After an accident, insurance companies may not be your best friends. They may try to make you settle for the least amount they can. An attorney can mediate between you and the insurance companies to ensure that you are adequately compensated.
