Should you suffer an injury because of someone else’s error, you have the right to seek a personal injury settlement from that person or, more commonly, their insurance company. This settlement is important for helping you maintain your financial footing at a time when you may have large medical bills and cannot work.
A Seneca personal injury lawyer from Hammack Law Firm is ready to defend your right to receive compensation for your injuries. We do not take this responsibility lightly. We want to help victims of negligent parties pursue the financial recovery they need.
How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help Your Case
We understand the frustration that our clients often feel after suffering an injury at the hands of another person. This can be a very tough time for you and your family.
Trust that we will treat your case with the professionalism and compassion that you need to have. We are a small law firm but with a big firm feel. We have decades of experience helping victims of the negligence of others. This allows us to defend our clients while delivering highly personalized service.
Helping You Build Your Case
Our attorneys fight hard for our clients in Seneca. We do not back down when insurance companies try to introduce half-truths about your injuries and your case. We counteract these techniques from the insurer by relying on the truth and our experience with past cases. Some of the steps we can take for you include:
- Studying any police report from the accident
- Interviewing witnesses to the accident
- Studying any video or photos of the scene
- Studying any physical damage to vehicles or other objects at the accident scene
- Interviewing doctors who treated your injuries
- Determining your long-term health outlook
- Hiring an accident recreation expert to determine what happened
To give you the opportunity to win your personal injury lawsuit, we must show that the other party behaved in a negligent manner. Through our thorough preparation, you can trust we will work hard to prove that you are the victim of another party’s negligent actions or inactions and, therefore, deserve a settlement.
Determining the Extent of Your Injuries
Ultimately, the reason for seeking a personal injury settlement after the accident is to help you and your family with your financial concerns. You may be left unable to work at the same level you did before the accident because of your injuries.
One of the most important tasks we can perform for our clients is helping them determine what their long-term health outlook will be. By understanding what future you face, we can seek a financial settlement that helps you receive the ongoing healthcare you need.
Affording the Medical Care You Need
If you suffer a brain injury in the accident, for example, you may need ongoing care for years. You may have to try to relearn how to walk, talk, and care for yourself. Your award can help you pay for the care you need.
You should never have to make a choice about whether to receive medical care because of concerns over being able to afford it. When someone else caused your accident and injuries, that party should pay for your ongoing medical care.
Working for a Pain and Suffering Judgment
Another key aspect of your personal injury settlement that we can help with is determining a pain and suffering amount to request. Pain and suffering judgments can include physical and emotional trauma related to your injury.
This judgment also should provide you compensation when you suffer a reduction in your quality of life related to the injury.
We can rely on our experience in past cases to determine the fairest amount to request for pain and suffering. Getting this aspect of the lawsuit right is difficult, but we will work hard to help you.
Following All Rules for Filing the Case
To maintain your legal right to seek damages for your medical bills, pain, and suffering, you have to fit within the state’s deadlines for starting the process of filing a claim. S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530 gives plaintiffs up to three years from the date of the accident to start the process.
You can rest assured that we will keep your case on track. We will not allow you to miss a chance at winning a judgment because of a technicality with a deadline.
