Personal injury damages are injuries that you likely wouldn’t have suffered if another person had been careful to avoid harming you. This covers a wide range of injuries, so we’ll need to get more specific as we handle your case.
Each type of injury comes with complex rules that will affect a resulting personal injury claim. While there are some broader laws that will affect any type of injury claim, the Edwards Firm personal injury attorneys will need to examine all the statutes that could have an effect on your unique case.
Any person who was responsible for the accident or other act, either solely or in part, can be found liable for the resulting injuries. Even those not directly causing your injury can be held liable for an injury sustained on their premises or injuries caused by the personal property that they own. For example, the owner of a dog whose attack caused your injuries can be held liable for the resulting injury.
You may be entitled to financial compensation even if you have not sustained a bodily injury if the negligent acts of another caused lost wages, opportunities, or other economic loss. You may also be entitled to damages for mental anguish, and pain and suffering. If your situation results in personal injury or the death of a close relative, such as your spouse or child, you could be entitled to loss of consortium and other relevant damages.
If you are hurt, you should go to a doctor. This is the best course of action for both your health and your case. A medical provider can properly documents your injuries. Insurance companies will use it against you if you don't go to the doctor for injuries right away.
You should repeat your account of the accident to every doctor you see, and try to get as much documentation as you can. Take pictures of what hurt you, fill out an accident report if you are hurt at a store or restaurant, and make note of any witnesses that may be needed later.
In most cases, the insurance company has one goal: either to deny your claim or pay you as little as possible. They use recorded statements as a tool to gain information to use against you, so be sure to speak with a Charleston trial attorney before giving a statement to an insurance company.
Most cases settle without going to court. If yours doesn't, the Edwards Firm, LLC is prepared to take your case to trial and stand by you each step of the way.
