Every auto accident case is different, making it difficult to predict the benefits that car wreck victims will receive. However, the more serious the accident and subsequent injuries, the more compensation is owed.

Car crash victims may receive reimbursement for:

  • Medical bills (hospital stays, doctor visits, etc)
  • Vehicle damage
  • Lost wages
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Care for permanent disabilities
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death
  • “Working with them was like working with friends I had known forever. Very professional but not intimidating.” - Barbara B.
  • “Best decision I ever made. They stood right next to me from the very beginning.” - Victor V.
  • “He has helped me through some very difficult times and has done so with kindness and compassion.” - Barron N.

    Who Is Liable for Damages After My Accident?

    Because South Carolina is an at-fault state, you are required to prove that another party was to blame for your auto accident. Proving negligence is not as simple as it may seem, but the experienced car accident attorneys at David Taylor Law will work to ensure that the responsible driver is held accountable.

    When Should You Get an Attorney After a Car Accident?

    If you were in a car accident, you may be wondering how soon you should hire a car accident lawyer. The short answer is: as soon as possible. There are multiple reasons why it's important to hire a car accident lawyer soon after an accident. 

    Firstly, the sooner you have a lawyer on your side, the better they can protect your legal rights and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

    Secondly, the longer you wait to hire a lawyer, the more difficult it may be to gather evidence and build a strong case. Those key witnesses may forget important details or become hard to track down. Not to mention, physical evidence may be lost or destroyed over time. By hiring a lawyer early on, they can begin investigating the accident and collecting evidence right away, increasing your chances of success.

    Finally, it's important to remember there are strict time limits, known as statutes of limitations, for filing a car accident claim. In South Carolina it is about three years from the date of the accident. If you wait too long to hire a lawyer and file a claim, you may lose your right to seek compensation altogether.

    What Do I Do After My Auto Accident in South Carolina?

    As a “second responder,” David Taylor Law can help from the start. Many car wreck victims feel overwhelmed on the day of their accident, and our lawyers’ goal is to help bear the burden. One of our car accident attorneys will come directly to you, meeting you in the hospital or at home – or even the scene of your wreck. After 9-1-1, make David Taylor Law your second call.

    Following your auto accident, we recommend the following:

    1. Seek medical attention.

    After your car accident, think safety first. Check to see if you, or anyone involved in the crash, need medical care. If so, call for it immediately. Even if you don’t think you’re injured, it’s wise to seek medical care in the days following your accident.

    Many car accident injuries will not be symptomatic immediately because adrenaline masks the pain. This can happen with whiplash, back injuries or head trauma. If symptoms arise a few hours later or the next morning, a quick visit to your doctor will not only not only benefit your health, but provide the official documentation necessary for your legal case. David Taylor Law can help you get the medical care you need and if you don’t have a primary care physician, we can help you choose one.

    2. Call the police.

    Notifying the police about your auto accident is crucial, so this step is not one to be skipped! The police report, like the doctor’s, is necessary in building your car accident case – especially if insurance companies dispute the cause of the crash.

    3. Gather the necessary information.

    Swap contact information with all other parties involved, including those who witnessed the car accident. Remember to get the other driver’s insurance information. Taking pictures of the car crash scene is important, too, serving as indisputable evidence down the road.

    4. Contact your attorney before speaking to the insurance company.

    Although it sounds cynical, keep in mind that the at-fault driver’s insurance company is not on your side. That’s why it’s best to let your car accident attorney handle all communications with insurance companies. Trust your lawyer to report your car wreck and provide the insurance company with the information they need.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • How Can an Attorney Help?
      Handling a car accident claim on your own can be tricky, especially if there’s a dispute over who caused the crash. Trust our team to handle the entire process from start to finish – so you can focus on feeling better! We’ll communicate with the insurance company, gather the necessary evidence and advocate on your behalf at every turn.
    • How Long Do I Have to File A Claim?
      The statute of limitations in South Carolina is three years, giving local drivers up to three years to file an auto accident claim. But because most evidence is time-sensitive, it’s best to contact David Taylor Law immediately after your car crash.
    • Who Will Pay My Medical Bills While My Case is Pending?
      Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage will pay for medical expenses up to the limit of your coverage. Because PIP coverage is “no-fault coverage,” it can be used regardless of which driver caused the accident.
    • What if the At-Fault Driver Doesn't Have Auto Insurance?
      South Carolina requires all drivers to carry uninsured motorist coverage. If the driver who caused your accident doesn’t have insurance, you can file an uninsured motorist claim with your own insurance company.
    • Is South Carolina an "At-Fault" State?
      Yes, South Carolina utilizes a fault-based system, meaning that the driver who caused the accident is liable for damages. Simply put, the at-fault driver must use their insurance to pay for damages.
    • Can I Receive Damages Even if I Was Partly to Blame?
      According to South Carolina’s “modified comparative fault” system, you may still be eligible for damages if your share of the blame is less than 51%. This must first be determined to find out if you have a case.
    • Do I Still Have A Case if I Wasn't Wearing My Seatbelt?
      Yes, you may still be eligible for damages even if you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of your accident. Schedule a free consultation with our experienced auto accident attorneys to learn more.
    • Should I Visit my Doctor Even if I Don't Feel Injured?
      Yes. Just in case medical issues arise down the road, it’s important to have documentation of your doctor’s visit. Be sure to mention even the most minor aches and pains – and follow any instructions the doctor provides.
    • Should I Speak to the Insurance Company?
      Do NOT speak to the insurance company without talking to an experienced auto accident attorney first. While they may seem concerned about your condition, the claims adjuster is not on your side. Trust David Taylor Law to handle all communication with the insurance company.
    • What Damages am I Eligible For?

      You may be eligible for compensation for the following: medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If your injuries require ongoing care or prevent you from working, additional damages may be owed.
