Charleston Personal Injury Lawyers

Accidents are an unfortunately common experience that most people face at some point in their life. As people, we all make mistakes that have outcomes we could not have predicted and, while many of these mistakes do not have particularly serious consequences, others may lead to significant property damages, injuries, or in the worst cases, death. Often, accidents cannot be avoided and occur despite our best efforts. However, many are the result of reckless or negligent behavior that put other people at a serious risk, such as when a driver decides to text while driving or an employer fails to perform appropriate safety checks. When others people do not behave in a safe or appropriate manner, their actions can have a serious effect on you and your loved ones’ lives.

After a serious accident or injury, you may be facing expensive medical bills, necessary rehabilitation, and even extended time away from work. All of these consequences can have a significant impact on your financial stability. These expenses are even more frustrating and unjustified when they resulted from an accident that you did not cause. The Charleston personal injury attorneys at Clawson and Staubes, LLC: Injury Group understand that this is unfair to you and your family, and we are prepared to help you receive the compensation you need to mitigate these costs. Our firm will put our experience to work for you so that you can receive the support you need after an accident.

South Carolina Personal Injury Statistics

Personal injury cases are common across the United States, due to the high number of accidents that occur throughout the year. In 2015 alone, the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that approximately 2.44 million Americans were injured due to car accidents and over 35,000 of these injuries were fatal. Using these 2015 NHTSA statistics, a report ranked each U.S. states by the number of car accidents that occurred over the year. South Carolina was found to have the third highest number of car accidents and the highest number of road fatalities in the nation, achieving the poor title of being the worst for the number of fatalities per one million miles travelled. These numbers are shocking and represent just one of the many different types of accidents that result in injuries across South Carolina. In many of these cases however, the individuals harmed are entitled to significant compensation to help manage the effects of their accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

After any kind of accident, you likely have a number of questions on your mind. Most people, who have not faced a serious injury before are unsure what steps they need to take or what they can do. We have provided the answers to some common questions we receive below. If you call (843) 720-0810, our attorneys are prepared to answer any more questions you may have.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive?

After you have been in a serious accident, you will likely face a number of different losses, whether physical, emotional, or financial. You may seek compensation to help you manage any of these types of losses, so that you and your loved ones may maintain your normal lifestyle. Additionally, you may seek compensation for short-term expenses—such as those immediately apparent after the accident—and long-term expenses that have been caused by the circumstances of the accident. Some of the most common forms of compensation individuals seek includes:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Rehabilitation or therapy costs
  • Long-term care
  • Loss of income or working capacity

Although this compensation can never fully heal the trauma of an accident, it can help protect your family from significant debt or damage to your credit. The full extent of the compensation you may be entitled to depends on the severity of the accident itself. A skilled lawyer can help you determine what you may be able to receive.

Why Should I Hire an Attorney?

If you wish to pursue legal action after an accident, you must act quickly in order to avoid restrictions based on the statute of limitations. However, during that time, you must also have the time to rest and heal so that you may recover fully. You do not need the stress of managing a legal case hanging over your head during your recovery, and this is where an attorney can help. They understand the steps you must take to build a successful case and will work with you to make sure that it is taken care of quickly and efficiently. Additionally, they can help gather information pertinent to your case and advocate on your behalf with doctors and insurance providers to help you get the compensation you need. The money you receive from your lawsuit may mean the difference between financial stability or ruin for you and your loved ones. You cannot risk making mistakes that could jeopardize your case. Even if you believe you can manage your case on your own, the advice of an experienced lawyer will only increase your chances of success.
