Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Summerville

Suffering a personal injury can be tough when the other party doesn’t want to take responsibility for hurting you. Fortunately, you’ll have a chance to recover with the help of an attorney who serves Summerville.

Summerville residents have plenty to enjoy about life in their town. Unfortunately, that famous Southern hospitality won’t protect you from an injury. Whether you’re taking a stroll through Azalea Park, checking out the “Birth of Sweet Tea” mural, or just relaxing in your home, an injury can come anywhere, at any time.

Unfortunately, those injuries could be serious, but now the responsible party won’t pay for your accident-related expenses. You’ll need the help of a personal injury lawyer serving Summerville on your side. When you’re struggling to get the full compensation you deserve, the attorneys at HawkLaw, PA can help.

Summerville cases are primarily handled out of our Charleston office.

Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

When you’re injured by another person, you deserve compensation for your loss. Unfortunately, one of the first difficulties you might face will be finding the worth of your damages. You’ll need compensation for all damages you’ve suffered, both economic and non-economic, but that can be difficult to find on your own.

You may already be thinking about the financial impact of your accident, like car repairs if you were injured in a Summerville auto accident. However, you might need help calculating your other damages. Many people don’t consider the impact of their non-economic damages, for example. While they may not affect you financially, your mental and emotional suffering is also important. Make sure your Summerville claim also includes these damages.

If you’ve been hurt by another person’s negligence, you might receive any of the following damages (or others) for your injury accident:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering

South Carolina Laws Affecting Your Claim

You may also need help protecting your compensation. You’ll need your funds to cover the costs of your injuries, but a mistake in filing your lawsuit could leave you with a diminished or dismissed claim.

First, you’ll need to make sure you’re acting on time. You’ll have three years to file a claim in South Carolina, which may seem like plenty of time. However, if you don’t act fast enough, you could be barred from recovering compensation in Summerville.

You’ll also need to pay attention to your contribution to the injury. In South Carolina, your compensation could be reduced if you’re partly at fault for the accident. Worse, if you’re more than fifty percent responsible for the accident, you could lose your compensation completely.
