Navigating Car Accident Claims in Spartanburg, SC
Have you or a loved one been involved in a car accident in Spartanburg, South Carolina? Navigating the complicated terrain of personal injury law can be daunting.
Our experienced Spartanburg personal injury attorneys at Sentinel Law Firm are here to offer you compassionate support and legal guidance.
Spartanburg Car Accident Attorneys
In an instant – in the seconds a driver’s eyes are off the road or in the minutes after someone gets behind the wheel after too many drinks – a car accident can upend lives and devastate families. What was once an unremarkable day becomes a tragic turning point that leaves behind life-changing injuries, economic hardship, and other ongoing struggles. When that happens, the innocent people who suffer because of another driver’s negligence or recklessness may not know what to do or who to turn to for guidance, help, justice, and compensation that can ease their burdens.
Representation That Goes Beyond the Courtroom
At Sentinel Law Firm, our Spartanburg personal injury lawyers understand the physical, financial, emotional, and practical challenges that car accident victims and their families face. We see the pain they endure, hear about the bills that pile up, and listen to their worries and concerns. We also know that it is not only a difficult time, but an unfamiliar and confusing one as well.
That is why our representation goes beyond zealous advocacy in the courtroom. While we stand up to insurance companies that try to take advantage of injury victims with pressure tactics and lowball settlement offers, we also take the time to sit down with each client whenever they have questions or want to talk about their case and their circumstances. Personal attention is our calling card, and personal service is our mission.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car accident, you can count on Sentinel to be at your side throughout the process, and you can depend on us to do everything possible to secure the maximum compensation available for your injuries and losses.
When Should You Call an Attorney After a Car Accident?
In the immediate aftermath of an accident, lawyers, lawsuits, claims, and courtrooms are probably not the first things on your mind. Getting medical attention, obtaining contact and insurance information from the other driver, and other important steps after a car accident must be taken care of. But contacting an experienced car accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident – and before you speak to the other insurance company – is a critical next step.
Contacting us for a free consultation after your accident does not automatically mean you’ll be filing a lawsuit. It doesn’t even mean that you’ll ultimately hire us to be your car accident attorneys.
Why Should You Call A Personal Injury Attorney?
Calling a personal injury attorney can provide you with answers to the important question you may not even know to ask and provides the guidance of an experienced attorney who can listen to your story and evaluate your case. It also means you can obtain the support you need, including help with medical care and mounting bills. Talking to a personal injury attorney also means that you won’t accidentally lose your right to seek compensation because you missed South Carolina’s strict deadlines for filing car accident lawsuits, known as a statute of limitations. Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side from the beginning also helps ensure you don’t get harassed or intimidated by insurance companies and ensures you don’t settle for less than you deserve.
The reality is that despite their ads and claims of being “on your side” or “your good neighbor,” insurance companies are in the business of making money. The other driver’s insurance company – which will defend the driver and pay any settlement or court judgment – wants to pay you as little as possible or nothing at all because every dollar they pay in claims is a dollar less in profits.
Not only does the insurance company not want to offer you money, they know how badly you need it. They know you have bills to pay and that you may not be earning a paycheck. They will try to take advantage of your situation, pressuring you to take what they offer no matter how inadequate, or convince you that you don’t have a case. And it works all too often.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
When car accident victims hire an experienced attorney to represent them, including negotiating with the insurance company, those tactics simply don’t work. Research shows that injury victims who hire a lawyer to handle their claim collect significantly more in compensation than those who try to handle things by themselves. This includes money to pay for:
- Past medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Costs of future medical care
- Past lost wages
- Loss of future earning potential
- Pain and suffering
