Fair and Just Compensation for Car Accident Injuries
Under South Carolina law , victims of auto accidents who were injured as a result of another’s negligent actions are entitled to compensation for all losses and expenses related to those injuries. Types of expenses that may be eligible for compensation following an auto accident include the following:
- Medical bills related to injuries
- Rehabilitation costs for continuing care
- Lost wages due to an inability to work
- Repair costs for your damaged vehicle
If you suffer substantial injuries in a Ladson auto accident, you also may be entitled to additional compensation, such as the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
The goal in these situations to make the accident victim as “whole” as possible in measuring the adequacy of the compensation that he or she is to receive from the negligent party.
Let Us Work to Resolve Your Claim
When you are involved in a serious auto accident, you are likely to be quickly approached by the responsible party’s insurance company with offers of a quick and easy settlement. Don’t be fooled – the reality is that the insurance company is only interested in settling your claim for as little as possible. If you try to take on an insurance company on your own, you are highly likely to end up with substantially less compensation than to which you are actually entitled. By allowing Howell & Christmas to represent your interests in negotiating with the insurance company, you will have a better chance of a full and fair recovery on your auto accident claim.
As there are strict time limits within which you must bring a personal injury claim following an auto accident in South Carolina, so do not hesitate in contacting Howell & Christmas for advice about your case. Let us advocate on your behalf and pursue adequate compensation for losses and expenses related to the auto accident in Ladson.
