It may not be wise to settle a car accident claim without a personal injury lawyer, as you may struggle to build your case and negotiate with the insurer while recovering from your injuries. This could cause the adjuster to deny your claim or offer a lower settlement than your damages warrant.
When you have one of our attorneys on your side throughout the claims process, we can help you by:
- Using our experience to make navigating the process go more smoothly
- Ensuring you understand all your options
- Protecting and advocating for your rights
- Managing many of the most stressful aspects of the process
- Explaining what you can expect as the case progresses
- Helping you meet all deadlines
- Using our resources to investigate your accident and finance the claims process
- Building a case using the available evidence
- Identifying recoverable expenses and losses that victims often overlook
- Negotiating with the insurer
- Taking your case to trial if necessary
If you are concerned about the cost of hiring legal representation, there is no need to worry. When we handle car accident claims, our team works based on contingency. This means you will not need to pay anything for our services unless we secure a payout in your case.
Working with a Car Accident Lawyer Can Ease the Stress on You
You may have never tried to negotiate a settlement after this type of incident before. There is no need to face this time-consuming and frustrating process alone, especially if you are still caring for your injuries.
Our law firm handles car accidents regularly. We know how the process works, what needs to be done, and what it takes to win compensation for our clients. Our attorneys are also familiar with how insurance companies negotiate and the laws that we can use to support your right to financial recovery.

We Can Help You Document Additional Damages
There is a chance you could undercut the value of your own case and leave thousands of dollars on the negotiating table by representing yourself.
Because we are familiar with traffic accident cases, we may be able to prove you suffered additional expenses and losses that you didn’t realize were recoverable. We also know how to value your future care needs, if any, and your intangible losses—these can make up a significant portion of your damages.
Some of the recoverable damages our team may pursue on your behalf include:
- Current and future treatment of your accident injuries
- Lost income if you missed work
- Repairs to your car
- Expenses related to the accident, such as rental car costs
- Pain and suffering
- Other emotional and intangible damages
- Wrongful death damages, when necessary
Our Lawyers Represent Victims Based on Contingency
Unlike when you hire a family law or business attorney, you should not need to pay a large retainer for personal injury services out of your own pocket. That’s why the attorneys from our firm work based on contingent fees. This means we use our resources and time to build your car accident case and only get paid if we recover damages for you.
Holding an At-Fault Motorist Responsible for Your Damages
After a Greenville traffic accident, the state’s personal injury laws allow you to hold the at-fault driver accountable for their negligence through an insurance claim or lawsuit. You could qualify to seek compensation for your accident-related damages, as well as future expenses.
In many cases, victims receive a payout from the negligent driver’s insurance company, allowing them to avoid court. However, you may need to go to court if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement.
Rather than trying to settle a car accident claim without a personal injury attorney, consider contacting our law firm quickly after your collision. Under S.C. Ann. §15-3-530, you have a limited time to pursue damages in civil court. While negotiating on your behalf, we can make sure that you do not lose your right to proceed with a lawsuit.
