Do you have a case?

An injury can be devastating, no matter how it happens.


    In personal injury cases, liability and negligence determine if you have a valid lawsuit. The person who caused the injury is liable and if we can prove negligence, we can generally increase the amount of money you receive as part of your settlement or jury award.

Greenville Car Accident Lawyer

A car accident can dramatically affect you and your loved ones. Not only are you dealing with physical injuries, but an accident can also cause financial difficulties for your family. The combination of the two makes the aftermath of a car accident especially hard. While we cannot restore your health, our lawyers can help with your legal situation, fighting for you to receive financial compensation involving .

When you have suffered an injury in a car accident, you cannot afford to wait to begin the legal process. The old adage that time is money holds true in a car accident case. Not only do you not have the luxury to wait to file your claim or lawsuit, but the insurance company may also try to rush you by pressuring you to give a statement that could harm your claim or to accept a settlement that pays you a fraction of what you owe. You need to take control of the legal process before it takes control of you.

Common Types of Car Accidents

What follows are common types of car accidents that our lawyers see in their daily practice:

  • Rear-end crashes are the most common type of car accident, comprising around 30 percent of the overall amount of car crashes.
  • Blind spot accidents occur when a driver does not check their blind spots before changing lanes or turning.
  • Head-on collisions are the most dangerous type of car crash, and they happen when one driver ends up in a place where they should not be. These accidents have the highest fatality rates.
  • T-bone accidents usually occur at a stop sign or intersection when one driver has not yielded the right-of-way as they should have.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Common injuries that car accident victims may suffer because of the crash include:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage
  • Internal injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries

What You Can Expect in a Car Accident Settlement

It is hard to give exact figures for settlement amounts because your check will depend entirely on your injuries and available insurance coverage. However, there are some general ranges that we have seen in our practice. For example, broken legs may be worth around $50,000. Traumatic brain injuries are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. A wrongful death settlement should be worth over $1 million if your loved one died in a car crash.

The Role of Negligence in a Car Accident

The laws of negligence determine car accident liability. To prove that someone was negligent, you must demonstrate that they acted unreasonably under the circumstances.

In a car accident case, things that could be considered negligence include:

  • Running a red light
  • An illegal turn
  • Not checking a blindspot before turning or changing lanes
  • Distracted driving when you are looking at your phone or doing something else behind the wheel
  • Rear-ending the car in front of you

The Statute of Limitations in South Carolina

Like every other state, South Carolina imposes strict limits on the time you must file a lawsuit. If you miss the statute of limitations, you could lose the right to file a lawsuit entirely. In South Carolina, you have three years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. Usually, the date of the injury is the date of the crash, but it could be the day when you realized that you were injured.

In reality, you would never want to wait three years to start the legal process, but you would still need to keep an eye on the clock when you are negotiating a settlement with the insurance company. The best time to begin the legal process is always now, even if it means that you are making your first call to an attorney.

Policy Limits and Your Car Accident

The insurance company will have a maximum coverage level for each accident, depending on the insurance policyholder’s level. They cannot be made to pay more than that. If that amount of coverage is insufficient to pay for your accident damages, you may file a claim against your insurance policy when you have underinsured motorist coverage. If you still cannot get enough compensation to cover your damages, the individual driver could be responsible for extra damages from their assets.

Putting Your Best Legal Foot Forward

In any car accident case, evidence is the most effective thing on your side. You have the burden of proof to show that the other driver was negligent for you to receive car accident compensation. You may not get a check if you cannot meet that burden.

Your car accident attorney would work to gather the necessary evidence to show who was responsible for the crash. This evidence could include:

  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Traffic camera footage
  • Testimony for a car accident reconstruction expert
  • The police report (which cannot be used as evidence in court)
  • Pictures from the scene of the accident
  • The wreckage from the crash

Why You Need a Car Accident Lawyer

The insurance company is not on your side, no matter how nicely they may talk to you or act like they are your friend. Their interest is the same in every single case. They are looking to pay you as little as possible. In some cases, that could even be zero. If you try to deal with them independently, you will be at a distinct disadvantage. An experienced attorney will stand up for your legal rights and keep the insurance company from pushing you around.

In addition, you need someone to investigate your accident and do the work that you do not have the bandwidth or the experience to do on your own.

Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s face it — you have questions.

Will my car accident case go to a trial?

The overwhelming majority of car accident cases will settle before they reach a jury, but you always have the option of filing a lawsuit and taking it all the way to a jury trial. You and the insurance company are motivated to settle and not go to a trial.

How do I know if I have a strong legal case?

You should call an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after the accident for a free consultation, where the attorney will review your case and give you their legal opinion about the strength of your case.

What should I do after a car accident?

There are two crucial things to do after a car accident:

  • See a doctor and get medical help (they will diagnose your injuries, and the diagnoses will be used in your insurance claim).
  • Hire a car accident lawyer because the insurance company may try to rush you into starting the legal process.
