A statute of limitations is a time limit the state puts on your right to file a lawsuit against the person who caused your injury. In South Carolina, this time limit is three years from the date of your accident. However, this deadline can vary based on the circumstances of your case. That’s why it’s so important to get a reliable attorney to look at your case as soon as possible. When time is of the essence, the Thumbs Up Guys have your back. We will work swiftly and efficiently to ensure your claim is filed within the statute of limitations.
The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend
Many people wonder whether they really need an attorney when the insurance adjuster seems to be so nice and helpful. The fact is that the insurance adjuster is not your friend. Their job is to get you to sign off on as low of a settlement as possible, or even to avoid paying you altogether. When they make their offer, it will likely be drastically lower than what you actually deserve.
When you refuse to sign, they may quickly turn less friendly. They might threaten to pay you nothing. They might bully or strong-arm you. If you feel uncomfortable speaking with an insurance adjuster, you can always direct them to your attorney for further communications. That’s what we’re here for. We’re the Thumbs Up Guys, and we’re ready to fight for your rights. Let us stand up and fight for you.

In general, a personal injury case results in a flat lump sum. This is one of the reasons why your attorney will want to establish how long your treatments will go on. We can’t determine the value of your claim if we don’t know the extent of your future medical bills.
Legally, you’re allowed to represent yourself. From a practical standpoint, however, the defendant is going to have powerful lawyers and insurance companies working for them. To have the best chance of building an ironclad case and getting the full value of your compensation, you need a Charleston, SC, personal injury lawyer in your corner who will fight for your rights.

To prove negligence, or fault, and recover compensation for your injuries and other losses, there are several factors you must be able to demonstrate. First, you must show that the other person involved in your accident violated a basic duty of care. Second, it must be proven that their irresponsible action(s) caused the collision or accident. Third, you must demonstrate that your injuries and damages were a direct result of the accident. Proving negligence without an experienced attorney can be difficult. Our team of personal injury lawyers can help you gather evidence and build the strongest case possible.
Special damages are also called economic damages. This refers to any financial harm and losses after your accident, like your medical bills, lost wages, and loss of potential future earnings.
General damages refer to “invisible injuries,” for which it can be harder to determine an exact dollar amount. These can include your physical pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and loss of relationships due to your accident. To learn the true value of your case and everything you may be entitled to receive after your accident, call the Thumbs Up Guys for a free consultation today.
The best answer to this question is, “Maybe, but it isn’t likely.” Generally, personal injury cases are able to be resolved through negotiation without the need for court.
