Personal Injury Vs. Property Damage After Your Car Accident

Auto accidents often deal a major blow, both physically and financially. After enduring the road to recovery, crash victims are left holding the bills for their medical treatment and vehicle repairs.

If you have been injured in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, trust the car accident lawyers at David Taylor Law. Our experienced team will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve, communicating with the insurance companies to achieve the best possible result.

 

Car Accident Injury Claims

Here at David Taylor Law, our personal injury attorneys are committed to getting you the medical care you need after your car accident. Once you are on the mend and have provided a copy of your medical records, we will focus on recovering compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability/ongoing care

 

Car Accident Property Damages Claims

In contrast to car accident injury claims, property damage claims seek compensation to cover vehicle repairs or replacement. They also cover the following:

  • Towing expenses
  • Rental vehicle costs
  • Damage to items inside the vehicle (mobile devices, sound systems, etc)
  • Other property damage caused by the at-fault driver

Be sure to keep all receipts from the repair shop, rental car company, etc. These will be important in proving vehicle damage and assessing the value of your car accident property damage claim.

 

Who Pays For Car Accident Damages?

The at-fault driver’s insurance company is financially responsible in car accident injury claims and property damage claims. If the at-fault driver is uninsured or has a policy that does not cover damages, your Uninsured Motorist coverage will likely cover the difference.

This further complicates the situation, making it even more crucial to have a qualified car accident lawyer in Myrtle Beach, SC on your side. David Taylor Law will fight to hold the at-fault driver accountable – and ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

 

Trust David Taylor Law

Whether your car accident lawyer in Myrtle Beach, SC is filing an injury claim or a property damage claim, they will handle all communications with the insurance companies. It is best not to speak with the insurance adjuster directly because, while they may seem friendly, they do not have your best interests at heart.

Instead, trust David Taylor Law to advocate for you and hold the at-fault driver accountable after your auto accident. We will fight to secure compensation for medical bills, lost wages, vehicle damage and more.
