Personal Injury FAQ in Charleston

When Can I File a Personal Injury Claim?

Because injuries can occur in so many different ways, not every single injury has grounds for a personal injury claim. The key element to having grounds to litigate after an injury is negligence. Careless or negligent behavior must have been the cause of the injury for it to be possible to win compensation.

The concept behind this is that someone else's behavior was to blame for an injury that you would not have suffered otherwise. For example, a person taking too much of a prescribed medication and getting sick because of it is not able to win compensation. However, if a doctor gave an incorrect prescription to the patient and told them to take too much medication and they were hurt as a result, this could be grounds for a personal injury case.

Can I Receive Compensation?

It depends. If you have a case that we think we can win, we will most likely take it. Because we are confident that we can win the cases we choose to pursue, there is a strong chance that we can win you compensation for your injury. However, if we are not able to win financial recovery for you, you will not be required to pay anything. Learn more about our contingency fee policy.

What Will the Awarded Compensation Cover?

In general, compensation is intended to cover all medical expenses that were incurred while treating your injury, any wages or anticipated wages that were lost due to recovery time, and pain and suffering that occurred because of the injury. In cases that include wrongful death, this compensation can go toward funeral and burial expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, lost financial security, and loss of companionship. Depending on the specifics of your case, there may be other damages that compensation is awarded for as well.

How Much Do You Charge?

This depends largely on the scale of your case. We do not have a flat fee that applies to all clients, but rather we design a specific plan around each unique case. For a more accurate quote, it is recommended that you fill out a free case evaluation and provide us with as many details as possible. Request that you would like to know more about how much we would charge for your specific situation and we will give you a quote. Remember, what we do charge you only comes out of the awarded sum of compensation, nothing comes out of pocket.
