When an auto accident occurs, devastating and permanent consequences can follow, all in the blink of an eye. It takes only a second for multiple lives to be changed forever by the injuries that can result from a serious vehicle crash.
During a time of physical and emotional injuries, and perhaps even a death, the least of your concerns should be financial instability. Nevertheless, steadily rising medical bills, lost wages due to an inability to work, and other necessary living expenses easily combine to bring an injury victim and his or her family to the brink of financial disaster.
Fortunately, we can take some of that burden from your shoulders and help you with the financial details that arise. The law firm of Howell & Christmas is dedicated to protecting your rights to compensation as an injury victim in Walterboro and throughout South Carolina. We will avail you to all options in pursuing compensation for your losses.
Investigating Your Accident
We will spend a great deal of time gathering information about your case. This activity is likely to produce documentation which could prove vital to your case:
- Written police reports
- Statements from those individuals who witnessed the accident or its aftermath
- Your recollection of the events leading up to, during, and following the incident
- Copies of your medical bills related to your injuries
- Copies of your medical records detailing your injuries and course of treatment
- Expert opinions on your medical condition and likelihood of recovery
- Estimates of repair work to your vehicle or any other property damaged
By collecting this information, we can get a clear sense of the cause of your accident, including whether another driver’s negligence led to it. If this is the case, then you may have a valid personal injury claim. Once we have determined whether you have a valid claim, we can proceed with the claims process.
Fighting for Your Rights
Injuries from vehicle crashes are all too common in South Carolina and the throughout the United States. In fact, vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for individuals age 11 to 27. We know how common and serious these incidents can be; as a result, we have focused our efforts on representing individuals and their families who have been injured as a result of another’s negligence.
