After an accident in which you suffered an injury that someone else caused, you have the right to seek a financial recovery. A Columbia personal injury lawyer from Hammack Law Firm can study your case and help you determine the best way forward.
If someone else caused your injury through a reckless or negligent act, you have the right to seek a personal injury settlement. However, you cannot just expect the insurance company to give you whatever amount you request. The team at Hammack Law Firm will work to help you receive fair treatment from the insurer.
How Our Personal Injury Attorneys in Columbia Can Help
Our attorneys have several decades of experience helping injury victims recover the damages they deserve. We focus on a customer-centered approach to serving our clients.
We understand that going through an accident that leads to an injury can be a very difficult situation. We treat our clients with compassion and empathy. We never want our clients to feel embarrassed about any conditions they may have after the injury.
You did nothing wrong. Someone else’s negligent behavior created the accident that led to your injury. You should not feel bad about this situation. We want you to feel confident in us and in your case, which is why we try to provide such a high level of personal service.
We Try to Build Personal Relationships
You will find that some Columbia attorneys that focus on personal injury claims simply try to rush through their cases as quickly as possible. They believe the more cases they complete, the more money they can earn for themselves, even if they do not ensure each client receives the best possible settlement for their needs.
We do not follow this pattern. We always take the time to learn about our clients and their families. One of our past clients had this to say about our personalized service:
- “My experience with the law firm was one of the best that I could have imagine. My family and I were suffering for a long time due to an accident that occurred on my job. The Hammack Firm was there from the time that I selected them for legal guidance until the end.” – Sammie Robinson
There are many more 5-star client reviews you can check out on our testimonials page. We are committed to working just as hard on a fair settlement for you and your family.
We Will Work Toward Your Desired Outcome
By taking the time to learn about your goals for the outcome in your personal injury case, as well as your worries and concerns, we can better serve your needs. We can focus our strategies and techniques on pressing toward the outcome you would like to see.
Without this knowledge, we would be unable to give you the level of personal service we strive to deliver. Treating our clients like family is something we believe in strongly, and we know that it works.

Understanding How Much You Could Win in a Personal Injury Claim
Our clients often are curious about how much money their personal injury settlements could involve.
We may be able to give you a range of potential settlement amounts in your case. However, we will not promise our clients that they will win a certain amount. Each case has unique aspects to it, and although these items may seem small, they can create significant differences in the judgment amounts from case to case.
Reimbursement for Medical Expenses Incurred
A portion of your settlement amount will go toward reimbursing your medical costs up to this point. These could include things like:
- Emergency care costs
- Hospital costs
- Rehabilitation costs
- Prescription costs
- In-home nursing care costs
Reimbursement for Lost Wages Incurred
If you are unable to work while you recover, you will be able to seek a judgment for the wages you did not earn up to this point.
Estimate of Financial Losses in the Future
Once you agree to a settlement, you cannot go back to the insurance company a few months later and ask for more money because of a new complication.
That makes it important for us to estimate your future lost wages and medical bills, so you can receive a judgment that takes these items into account when we settle.
Pain and Suffering Judgment
As part of the settlement, we can help you seek an award that compensates you for mental and physical trauma, pain, and suffering. This amount also compensates you for any reduction in the quality of life you are experiencing and that you will continue to experience.
