South Carolina Personal Injury FAQ
When you’ve suffered a major injury, chances are good that you need help with the details. You may know that you’re eligible for a personal injury claim in South Carolina, but how much is your claim worth? How much will you receive for it? How do you begin to fight back against the at-fault party?
Making your injury lawsuit a success isn’t easy, so get answers from our South Carolina personal injury FAQ. For more answers, simply reach out to us at HawkLaw, PA.
What are my time limits for a personal injury claim?
Every claim will have a time limit in which to file. This limit prevents someone from filing a long time after the fact, which helps preserve their evidence. In South Carolina, you’ll need to file within three years of your accident or you’ll be barred from recovery. So, if it’s been more than two years after your accident, you’ll need to speak to your lawyer about filing as soon as possible.
How much will I pay for a lawyer?
Fortunately, you shouldn’t pay out of pocket after your accident. Instead, our lawyers work on contingency fees*. This means that our payment is dependent, or contingent, on whether we win your personal injury claim. Your lawyer will discuss the percentage of your claim we’ll receive after winning, which is limited by law.
That means you’ll know how much of your compensation you’ll need to pay before you ever get started, and that compensation will only come from your claim. If we don’t win your claim, you don’t pay us anything.
What if my child is injured?
Sadly, children are often injured, and that can be difficult for them to recover from. They don’t have the same legal rights you do as an adult. Fortunately, South Carolina allows parents to file for their children. You’ll need help, but your child deserves compensation for their injuries just as much as an adult.
If your child has been injured, reach out to an attorney, who will help you file. Your child will need that support, so we’ll help you name the at-fault party and get justice for your injured child.
