Frequently asked questions

Contacting A Lawyer
If you’ve been hurt due to someone else’s negligence, it is a good idea to hire a lawyer right away. There is a limit on the amount of time you have to take legal action, so it’s vital to have an experienced injury attorney behind you as soon as possible.
You should select an attorney who has specific experience handling cases like yours. Not all attorneys have experience handling injury cases, and not all lawyers are ready or willing to take cases to trial if necessary. Choose a lawyer who is willing to stand up and fight for the compensation you’re owed.
You should bring any and all documentation regarding your accident. This includes medical bills, photos of the accident scene, photos of your injuries, vehicle accident reports, wage statements, receipts for losses you’ve incurred, and more.
At Murphy Crantford Meehan, we represent clients on a contingency-fee-basis. What does this mean? It means you won’t owe us anything until we win your case. Our consultations are 100% free, and you won’t pay a dime until we secure money for you.
Investigate The Accident
You’ll want to have your lawyer immediately investigate the accident that caused you harm. Evidence crucial to your injury claim could be cleaned up, removed, or destroyed, so your lawyer will want to work quickly to secure it.
Depending on the nature of your accident, your lawyer will likely look for evidence including, photos of the scene, videos from surveillance or traffic cameras, police reports, eyewitness statements, black box recorder data, cell phone data, social media posts, and more.
After an injury accident, you can help your case by documenting and preserving evidence including: photos of the accident scene, photos of your injuries, eyewitness contact information, police reports, vehicle repair estimates, medical bills, and a pain journal of what you’re experiencing.
Getting compensation requires proving that another party or parties were responsible for the harm you suffered, so an investigation is vital. With a strong enough case, your lawyer could negotiate for a fair settlement from the at-fault party’s insurance company, or seek damages in court.
Negotiate A Fair Settlement
In fact, most injury claims are settled out of court. The insurance company usually will not want to risk having a judgment or verdict issued against them, so negotiating for a settlement is the outcome in a majority of injury cases.
If you’ve been hurt by someone else’s negligence, your first option will likely be to seek compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance policy. If you were hurt in a car accident, for example, this would likely be filed against their auto insurance policy. If you were bitten by someone’s dog, their homeowners’ insurance policy would likely apply.
A fair settlement will depend on the nature and severity of your injuries. In most instances, this means compensating you for the medical expenses you have incurred and will be forced to pay in the future for your injuries associated with this accident. It will also take into account your lost wages, repairs or replacement of damaged or destroyed property, and other losses.
If the other party’s insurer denies your claim or offers you a “low-ball” settlement offer, your attorney might advise that you file a personal injury lawsuit and seek damages in court. Even after a lawsuit is filed, the negotiations could continue, and the case might settle before a trial is necessary.
Gather Documents & Analyze The Case
In South Carolina, you have three years from the date you were injured to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. This is known as the statute of limitations, or timeline established by the state for taking legal action. If a lawsuit is necessary, you’ll want to make sure your claim is filed long before the statute of limitations expires.
If you decide to file an injury lawsuit, your lawyer will submit a complaint with the court. This is a detailed draft of the lawsuit and the allegations that are being made against the at-fault party.
In general, injury victims could be owed compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, repairs or replacement of property, loss of future earnings, loss of household services, pain and suffering, and more.
As we mentioned before, a majority of injury cases end up settling before a trial is necessary. The other side has the ability to offer a settlement at any time before a verdict or judgment is rendered, so a settlement could potentially be reached well into the process.
Settlement, Trial or Other Resolution
If you accept a settlement offer from the other party’s insurer, that will signal the end of the legal action. That’s why it’s crucial to hire a lawyer to fight for a fair settlement offer, because if you accept a low-ball offer and find out later that you have other costs associated with your injuries, you would be barred from seeking additional compensation.
Once a settlement offer has been agreed to, the parties will sign the necessary documents (usually a settlement agreement and a liability release), and the funds will be distributed to your attorney. If your attorney worked on contingency, they would deduct their fees and expenses and will then issue you a check for the remainder.
If your case goes to trial, your attorney will present an argument before the court. If the jury finds your arguments compelling, they may award you damages for the harm you’ve suffered and losses you’ve incurred.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a way that two parties can settle a disputed claim without having to take the case to trial. This is commonly used in personal injury cases. It is often much faster and less expensive than going to trial, so it might be another way of getting the compensation you need and deserve.
