As a digital-first law firm, you’ll be able to check in on our findings and see how your case is progressing. 

3. Initial Negotiations

Once we have what we need to build a case for your claim, we will contact the insurance company or at-fault party and attempt to negotiate a fair and just compensation for your injuries. Our goal is to do Right By You and agree on a fair and just settlement for your damages, pain, and suffering. If an acceptable settlement can’t be reached, a HawkLaw trial lawyer will advise you about the option of going to court.

Common FAQ’s

  • Who’s at Fault?

    Even though serious injuries can result from car accidents, South Carolina is a “fault” state for auto insurance. This means that clear proof of who is at fault for the accident must be presented to earn fair and just compensation from the car accident. HawkLaw’s car accident legal process uncovers the vital evidence to support your claim as we fight hard for your rightful compensation.

  • How Do Insurance Companies Determine Who’s at Fault?

    In South Carolina, insurance companies use the state’s 51% rule, as dictated by the precedent of the case Ross v. Paddy, to determine fault for a car accident. Under the 51% rule, you will receive payment from the insurance company if it can be proven that you bear 50% or less fault for the accident. You can speak to a personal injury attorney for more details about how the 51% rule works.

  • Should I File an Insurance Claim if I Am at Fault in a Car Accident

    It’s not legally mandated, but it’s in your best interest to contact your insurer if you’re at fault for an accident. While there’s high potential that your insurance premiums will go up, your insurer will be more open to discussing options with you if you contact them immediately after the accident. The other driver’s insurance company may also discuss the incident with your insurer so it’s best to contact them yourself ahead of time. You can also retain your HawkLaw car accident attorney to discuss matters with the other driver’s insurer.
