Your Personal Injury Case in Folly Beach
It’s a well-known fact that car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims. The U.S. Census reports that 10.8 million motor vehicle accidents occurred in the U.S. in 2009. Following such an accident, you may be too injured, traumatized, or distracted to be able to handle the necessary details of a claim. Our firm can take care of those details for you and apply the necessary skills to overcome insurance company tactics designed to undervalue your claim.
We not only handle car accident claims but many other types of personal injury claims such as those based on construction accidents, nursing home abuse, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, dangerous drugs, sexual abuse, maritime accidents, wrongful death, and more. We have handled thousands of cases for clients throughout South Carolina through proven methods, from thorough investigation into the incident, establishment of liability, and intensive negotiation with insurance companies. We also relish the opportunity to take our cases to court to argue before a judge and jury.
Damages in Personal Injury Claims
Your injury claim may lead to both economic damages such as your medical and other out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages or income, and property damage to non-economic damages such as for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and similar losses. Our Folly Beach injury attorneys will fight for optimal results in all these areas using all of the skills we have developed through our extensive experience.
