A Greenville Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Battle the Insurance Company

The big insurance companies are not your friend after an accident. They are notorious for using all kinds of tricks, traps, and cheats to pay you less money. The insurance companies hire adjusters with very little health education to second guess your injuries and treatment.


A personal injury lawyer can help you combat the insurance companies’ tricks, traps, and cheats. We have developed a Battle Plan Process to help you to win your case. A lawyer can develop the evidence needed to help prove how you were hurt and how much money it will take to make it right. Evidence can include medical documentation and bills, lost wage information, and expert testimony.


Our Personal Injury Attorneys in Greenville Can Help Get You Medical Care

Getting the right treatment in Greenville is one of the most important things you can do for your case. An experienced doctor, physical therapist, or medical provider can help you recover. These medical professionals can not only help you heal but will provide the proper documentation about how you were hurt and how severe the damage is.


A lawyer can help you find the proper treatment for your situation. We can refer you to providers we have worked with in the past to help get you the treatment you need. Additionally, many of these providers will wait on collecting your bill until your case resolves.


A Greenville Lawyer Can Help You Prove Your Case

To win your case, a lawyer first needs to prove who was responsible for hurting you. Often this is described as who was “at fault” for an accident. In some cases, like rear-end car accidents, determining responsibility can be straight-forward. In other cases, proving responsibility may require experts or an accident reconstructionist. Second, you must prove how much you are owed. This is typically referred to as damages. In Greenville personal injury claims, the majority of damages are medical bills. This why getting proper treatment by doctors who are experienced with these types of claims is important.


Two things are essential here. One is the total amount of your medical bills. Two is evidence from your doctor that the bills are related to the harms you suffered from the accident. Our lawyers can help you get treatment from experienced medical professionals who can properly document your treatment.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

A personal injury case refers to any number of different types of accidents where an individual suffers harm from the wrongdoing of another person or company. Common types in Greenville include automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, and truck accidents. Other types of personal cases involve medial malpractice, premises liability, and nursing home negligence.

Regardless of the type of case you have, a Greenville personal injury lawyer can help you with critical aspects of the case. You can contact us 24/7 to start the process of seeing how our attorneys can help.


Types of Money Damages You Can Include for Personal Injury in Greenville

South Carolina law lays out numerous types of damages in personal injury litigation. Damages are an amount of money that compensate the injured person. Two categories of damages are actual damage and general damages. Actual damages, also called special damages, are those losses that have an exact dollar amount. These include medical bills, prescription charges, lost wages, future expenses, and services. Medical bills usually make up the largest portion of actual damages in a personal injury case.

General, also called intangible damages, are losses that do not have an exact dollar amount. These include disfigurement, loss of family services, deprivation of normal life expectancy, alternation of lifestyle, psychological trauma, mental anguish, mental distress, apprehension, anxiety, emotional harm, psychological damage, depression, sexual disfunction, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.

A Greenville Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help with a Pre-Existing Injury

Most people have pre-existing injuries to various parts of their body. Being in a car accident can further aggravate a pre-existing injury, as well as cause new ones. Insurance companies are notorious for exploiting people past medical history for the purpose off lowering settlements.

The law protects people who have pre-existing injuries and makes two things very clear. One, the person who caused the accident is not responsible for any pre-existing problem or pain. Two, the law does not excuse a person for making a pre-existing injury worse.

The law puts it the following way (the injured person is the Plaintiff and the person who cause the injury is the defendant): "[t]he fact that a person is more susceptible to injury or death because of a pre-existing condition or weakness does not serve to excuse an otherwise negligent defendant who has caused the injury, or allowed the injury or death to happen when there is a duty to act to prevent it. A negligent defendant takes his plaintiff as he finds him, whether the plaintiff be in perfect health or in poor health, or somewhere in between." Ralph King Anderson, Jr., South Carolina Requests to Charge - Civil, 2009, § 13-13 Damages - Pre-Existing Condition


A lawyer can help with pre-existing injuries by examining past medical records and properly classifying a client’s injuries. Classification as pre-existing, new, or aggravated has various implications for a person’s personal injury claim.

Deadlines in Greenville Personal Injury Cases

The statute of limitations is the main deadline you need to worry about in personal injury claims. This deadline is the amount of time an injured person has to either settle their claim or file a lawsuit. In most cases, the statute of limitations in personal injury suits is three years from the injury.

While most cases can be resolved well before three years, it’s important to calculate this deadline and review it often. Additionally, its best for an experienced personal injury lawyer to review the claim to make sure the statute of limitations isn’t shorter than three years. For example, if a government worker is the person who causes the injury, the statute of limitations can be two years.
