Understanding Your Personal Injury Case

If you’ve been injured in Myrtle Beach, SC or the surrounding areas, our team is here to help. We’ve provided some insight into the questions our clients most often ask here:

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 doctors 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.

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 is important to have medical documentation if you plan to seek damages for your injury.

In South Carolina, the statute of limitations is three years. This means that you have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit.

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.

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 is no way to know your case’s value without taking a much closer look.

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.

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.
