Determine the Cost and Severity of Your Truck Accident Injuries
The cost of a truck accident can be significant. According to South Carolina Civil Remedies and Procedures §15-32-210, your recoverable damages after this type of accident may include the cost of treating your injuries, as well as:
- The income you lost due to your injuries and recovery process
- The costs of repairing or replacing your car and other damaged property
- The costs of any required long-term therapy or rehabilitation
- Physical impairment
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
The cost of treating your injuries will vary according to their severity, the length of your treatment plan, and the amount of time your injuries force you to miss work. These injuries might prevent you from working for longer periods of time by requiring long periods of rest and immobilization. We may be able to help you calculate the physical and financial costs of these types of injuries.
A truck accident might also leave you with injuries severe enough to require long-term therapy and rehabilitation.
Do Not Run Out of Time to Fight for Financial Compensation
South Carolina Civil Remedies and Procedures §15-3-530 explains the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit after a truck accident in South Carolina. This law—also known as a statute of limitations— generally entitles you to three years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.
If you prefer to resolve your lawsuit outside of court, our legal team might be able to help you negotiate a settlement agreement with the responsible party. However, it is important to act promptly and keep your right to sue open in case the responsible party doesn’t make you a fair settlement offer.
Why Should You Hire a Lawyer?
Fighting for financial recovery after a collision with a large truck can be a time-consuming undertaking, especially if you are simultaneously focused on your physical recovery. You do not have to prove your potential right to compensation or build your case on your own.
When you trust your lawsuit to a Pickens truck accident lawyer from Hammack Law Firm, our goal is your financial recovery. For example, if your damages exceed the limits of the responsible party’s liability insurance coverage, we may be able to help you file an underinsured motorist (UIM) claim with your own insurance company if you carry this optional form of insurance. We may even be able to help you combine—or “stack”—coverage from multiple UIM policies if you own more than one vehicle with UIM coverage.
Hammack Law Firm will not add to your financial burden by charging out-of-pocket fees. Instead, our payment comes as a percentage of your court award or settlement offer, if and only when you win your case. If we are unable to get you a payout, you will not be charged attorney fees.
