Personal Injury


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Need A Lawyer?
    Personal injury cases are complicated, and without a thorough understanding of South Carolina laws, handling your case on your own could negatively impact the damages you receive. Trust David Taylor Law instead, ensuring you’ll have a compassionate, qualified team beside you throughout the process.
  • What Are Some Common Types of Personal Injuries?
    A personal injury is any type of injury that is the result of another person’s negligence. Common injuries include car wrecks, slip and falls, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, etc.
  • What Should I Expect From the Personal Injury Case Process?
    At David Taylor Law, our team of experienced personal injury attorneys will walk beside you each step of the way, keeping you informed as we fight for the damages you deserve. After your initial consultation, we’ll make sure you’ve received the medical care you need. Then, we’ll start to gather evidence and contact any witnesses to build your case. Our team will also handle all communications with the insurance company and other parties involved, allowing you to focus on your recovery. If we’re able to reach a settlement outside of court, the case is over. If not, your case will go to court.
  • What if I'm Partly to Blame for My Accident?
    Here in South Carolina, if you are less than 50% to blame, you may still be eligible for compensation. Schedule your free consultation today to find out if you have a case.
  • Will My Case Go to Trial?
    Most personal injury cases do not go to trial and are settled outside of the courtroom. This depends on the strength of your case and the evidence supporting it.
  • How Much is My Case Worth?
    Your case must be thoroughly investigated to determine its worth. Your attorney may be able to give you a rough estimate after your initial consultation, but there’s no way to know your case’s value without taking a much closer look.
  • What Damages are Available?
    The damages you receive depend on the type and severity of your injury – as well as the circumstances surrounding it. Economic damages include compensation for medical bills, lost wages and property damage, for instance. Non-economic damages cover non-tangible things like pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Contact an attorney to find out which damages you are eligible for.
  • How Long Do I Have to File A Personal Injury Case?
    In South Carolina, the statute of limitations is three years. This means that you have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Should I Go to the Doctor Even if I Don't Feel Injured?
    Yes. You may not feel any pain or symptoms right away, but problems can arise if left untreated. What seems like a little soreness could point to a much bigger problem, and it’s important to have medical documentation if you plan to seek damages for your injury.
  • What Should I Do After an Accident?
    After your accident, go to the doctor immediately. Take pictures of your injuries and write down everything that occurred. Be sure to keep any medical documentation from the doctor and follow their instructions for follow-up/ongoing care. Before speaking to the insurance company, contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
