Traffic accidents remain a fact of life in South Carolina as well as across the nation. These accidents often have devastating consequences for victims and families, ranging from serious wounds to life-altering catastrophic injuries and unpredicted death. At Howell & Christmas we see the cruel aftermath of such accidents every day as we work diligently on behalf of our clients. Our firm has more than 30 years of combined experience representing auto accident victims as well those harmed through other negligence-based incidents in South Carolina.
We know how to pick up the pieces for those who have been injured or have lost a loved one due to someone else’s carelessness, recklessness, or other misconduct. Our overriding goal is to help you win the compensation you deserve for the damages you’ve sustained in a personal injury or wrongful death accident in Moncks Corner. We generally do that by sending a notice of claim or lawsuit to the respective insurance company. Our goal in that endeavor is to maximize your monetary recovery in the face of common insurance company tactics designed to pay you as little as possible.
Traffic Collisions in South Carolina
According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety in its most recent publication on traffic collisions, a traffic crash occurred in our state every 4.9 minutes in 2009. Someone was injured every 10.9 minutes while an individual died every 9.8 hours in a fatal accident. These statistics demonstrate the continuing frequency with which these accidents occur on our roads. Dealing with the legal details in the aftermath of such an event can be problematic for those who are suffering from physical damage, emotional stress, loss of earnings, runaway medical expenses, and more. Insurance company representatives work on behalf of their employers, which means they are not looking out for your best interests. That is why you need a personal injury attorney from our firm whose sole purpose is to help you obtain the insurance payment that reflects the full extent of your injuries and losses, both now and into the future.
How Our Firm Can Help You
At Howell & Christmas we know how to deal with insurance companies. Through our decades of experience, we have developed productive methods for doing so along with honed negotiation skills. Our legal team includes a former insurance company litigator who earlier defended these companies in statewide courtrooms. That background has given us keen insight into how insurance companies operate. We use that insight every day to fight for responsible payouts to our injured clients, which include medical expenses, lost wages or income, vehicle property damage, pain, suffering, and similar losses.
