After suffering an injury that someone else caused, you may hear from that party’s insurance company. That insurer may try to convince you that it has your best interests in mind. However, consulting with a Mount Pleasant personal injury lawyer at Hammack Law Firm before accepting the insurance company’s first offer may be beneficial.
Insurers do not treat victims fairly very often. Instead, they may try to reduce the settlement amount they offer to you to keep their profits high. Our legal team knows this. You can rest assured that when you choose to hire us, we will work as hard as we can for your benefit.
How We Can Maximize Your Personal Injury Settlement Amount
Our team will not guarantee that our clients will win a certain amount in a personal injury claim. We can give you a basic idea of what you could win, but we will not make promises.
What we promise is that we will use our successes and experiences in past cases like yours to give you our highest possible level of service. Because the individual circumstances in a personal injury case play a huge role in determining the settlement amount, we will pay attention to even the smallest detail to help us win the case.
We Take the Time to Learn About You and Your Family
One of the ways we set ourselves apart and give our clients the service they deserve is by focusing on our clients. We have a customer-centered law firm. This means we treat our clients like we would treat our own families.
We spend time learning about your concerns about the personal injury case. We also want to learn about your goals for the outcome. We want to understand what is important to you and your family.
By spending time to learn these things, we believe we can better tailor our representation for you. Our team understands that every case is unique. Our focus on the client and his or her needs helps us find the most important aspects of each case.
Clients Appreciate Our Approach
We hear regularly from our past clients about how much they appreciate our attention to detail. In one Google review, a past client wrote:

Dealing with Severe Injuries
One of the reasons we fight so hard for our clients is because we know how the effects of a serious injury can linger. If you have a concussion from your accident, for example, you could be facing headaches, blurred vision, and brain fog that will continue well into the future, according to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
If you suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), your life may never be the same. You may need ongoing physical therapy or in-home nursing care.
You should not have to pay your medical bills or miss out on the ability to earn a living when someone else’s negligence led to your accident. Through our work as your personal injury attorney in Mount Pleasant, we will try to win a settlement for you, so you can afford the medical care you will need for months and years into the future.
Medical Bill Reimbursement
A standard part of a personal injury settlement involves having your medical costs related to the accident covered. When someone else caused your injuries through negligence or recklessness, that party’s insurance company should pay for your medical care.
This amount should cover medical costs accumulated so far, as well as an estimate of future medical costs.
Lost Wages Reimbursement
If you are unable to work because of your injuries, you may miss out on tens of thousands of dollars of salary. This can leave your family with financial hardships.
The insurance company should pay you for these wages you missed out on earning. We will make sure this amount is part of any settlement.
Pain and Suffering Judgment
If you have a reduction in your quality of life because of the injuries, we can help you receive a payment to compensate you for this situation. This amount can vary quite a bit, depending on the severity of your injuries and on any mental trauma you are experiencing.

Keeping Your Case Moving Forward
We understand the sentiment that many of our clients have for trying to settle a case quickly. They want to receive a payment and move on with their lives as fast as possible, putting the memories of the accident in the rearview mirror.
However, we also know that certain aspects of a personal injury lawsuit simply require a bit of time to settle. If your case involves long-lasting injuries and a potentially large settlement amount, the insurer may try to stall the process. We will work hard to keep things moving forward.
Having a Full Diagnosis of Your Injuries
To help you receive the highest possible settlement amount, we do need to take the time to ensure that doctors fully understand your injuries. Once you agree to a settlement, you cannot go back to the insurance company and request more money later if you discover a new complication from the accident.
Trust that we will take the time required to fully understand your injuries and the overall case, all while working with a sense of urgency. We also will make sure your case meets all of South Carolina’s deadlines, including the three-year statute of limitations for starting the process, as outlined in S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530.
