Why Getting a South Carolina Car Accident Attorney Matters
Auto accidents are stressful. In the best of circumstances, they interrupt your day, and are a major inconvenience. Oftentimes, however, collisions result in a variety of issues on top of inconvenience – damage/repairs to your vehicle, injuries, medical expenses and lost time at work, just to name a few.
As you heal from your injuries, you’ll also be burdened with providing the at-fault driver’s insurance company with all kinds of information and documentation about yourself and your claim. You did nothing wrong and yet, it may feel like YOU’RE the one on trial. Insurance companies, and the adjusters to whom you will be speaking, handle claims like yours every single day. They know all the ins and outs of how claims work – in all likelihood, you do not. This puts you at an immediate disadvantage as the at-fault driver’s insurance company goes about its job of paying you as little as possible. The longer you handle your claim alone, the easier it is for the insurance company to minimize your claim. If you’ve been injured in a car wreck, get someone on your side that knows as much (or more) about how injury claims work as the insurance company and their adjusters. Level the playing field. Contact contact Hundley Law LLC right away to discuss your case.
Types of Damages
After a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for a variety of losses (also called damages) that you have suffered as a result of the accident, which generally include the following:
- Vehicle Repairs / Total Loss
- Medical expenses (both past and future)
- Lost wages (both past and future)
- Pain and suffering
There are numerous, more specific damages, that may be sought if applicable; however, the insurance company is unlikely to fully inform you of any and all ways you may seek compensation, let alone, how best to document the damages involved in your case.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, contact contact Hundley Law LLC as soon as possible. As the victim of someone else’s negligence, it is important that you level the playing field before you are taken advantage of.
