Helping Accident Victims Recover For Their Damages
A motor vehicle accident claim can arise out of any number of different scenarios. Our accident lawyers help those who have been injured or suffered property damage from the following:
- A car crash or accident
- A motorcycle accident
- A commercial vehicle or truck accident
- A pedestrian or bicycle accident
South Carolina is considered an “at-fault” state when it comes to who is responsible for a car wreck. In other words, in South Carolina, the law states that the person who caused the accident has to pay for the damages caused by their negligent behavior. For example, if reckless driving was involved as part of the cause of the accident, the reckless driver, or more likely, their insurance company, would have to pay for any damages caused by that accident.
Why It Helps To Hire An Attorney For A Car Crash
Even if the property damage was minor, or you don’t think that your injuries were that serious, it still helps to hire an attorney after you’ve been in a motor vehicle accident. A personal injury attorney can help make sure you are not missing any important steps in recovering damages. An accident lawyer will be able to help identify all of the possible sources for recovery. In addition, an attorney will help negotiate with the insurance company to make sure you are getting the financial compensation you deserve. At Koon Cook & Walters, LLC, our car crash lawyers have more than 75 years of combined experience. They will be able to assess your situation, negotiate a settlement on your behalf, or take your case all the way through litigation if necessary.
