By allowing our St. Matthews personal injury lawyer to represent your interests, you will have a staunch legal ally in your corner that is not timid in dealing with insurance companies.
Legal Rights as a Victim of Negligence
One common example of a personal injury insurance claim occurs when a driver, passenger, bicyclist, or pedestrian is injured in an automobile accident caused by the negligence of another driver. All too often, drivers succumb to distractions while driving, which can include:
- GPS usage
- Playing a stereo too loudly
- Assessing one’s appearance in the mirror
- Talking on a cell phone
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
The reality is that all drivers, no matter how experienced, should take the time to abide by basic safe driving practices, such as those recommendations of the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. By following these tips, all drivers can potentially reduce the incidence of accidents—and injuries to others—on roadways. When safety precautions are not taken, however, and negligence does cause injuries to you or a loved one in St Matthews, you can rest assured that the St. Matthews personal injury lawyers of Howell & Christmas are here to inform you of your rights and help you through the often complex process of filing a formal claim with the insurance company for the responsible party.
Pursue the Compensation You Deserve
It can be difficult to adequately measure your losses when you or a family member is injured in any type of accident caused by the negligence of another. While the amounts of medical bills are easily determined, it is not always so easy to place a monetary value on the overall effects on your life and that of your family’s life as a result of devastating or catastrophic injuries. Pain and suffering, loss of income, perhaps for years to come, and other intangible types of damages are much more difficult to determine. At Howell & Christmas however, we have the experience in valuing such damages and making a strong claim for compensation. Let our St. Matthews personal injury attorneys provide you with the assistance that you need in pursuing the fair amount of compensation for your injuries.
