Auto Accident Lawyer in Greenwood, SC

In 2017, the South Carolina Department of Safety reported a car crash resulting in injury occurred every 13 minutes. This resulted in more than 60,000 injuries suffered by victims of car accidents.

Unfortunately, victims of car accidents often face an uphill battle collecting compensation from insurance companies. Remember, no insurer likes to pay claims — in fact, they make more money from collection of premiums when payouts are kept to a minimum. Insurance company adjusters are trained to point part of the blame for an accident to the victim. This helps them pay out less under the shared fault rules in South Carolina.

What does this mean for you? While you are busy recovering from your injuries, you may also be facing long-term financial issues thanks to missing time from work, payments for medical bills, and the high cost of rehabilitation. Added expenses mean can mean more stress, which doesn’t help your recovery.

You do not have to fight the insurance company alone. In fact, it is always a good idea after a car accident to work with an attorney who has experience handling car accident injury cases. Once an insurer understands you have someone serving as your advocate, they are less likely to deny your legitimate claim.
