Hiring an Attorney Gives You the Best Chance to Receive Compensation
Victims and their families are often at a strong disadvantage in the aftermath of automobile accidents caused by the negligence of others. The healing of an injury can take both a physical and financial toll, and families are often overwhelmed with medical bills that require payment before the injured person is able to return to work.
To make matters worse, the insurance company’s objective is to pay the claimant as little money as possible—or even nothing at all. To that end, insurance representatives tend to exploit victims’ lack of experience with the claims process. By way of example, insurance companies often attempt to conduct recorded interviews with auto accident victims. If an injured party grants a recorded interview without first consulting an attorney, it is possible that the insurance company will use information from the interview to deny or minimize the claim.
Without a legal advocate, some victims accept unfair or low settlements out of financial need, but before they know the full extent of their injuries. This is why legal representation is crucial. At least one insurance industry study found that people who go into this process with attorneys are much more likely to receive higher compensation for their injury claims. Retaining an experienced attorney can be a critical step to protecting your legal rights.

Deadlines Applicable to South Carolina Auto Accidents Cases — Act Now to Protect Your Rights
Each state has a statute of limitations pertaining to personal injury claims. This means you must either file your lawsuit or resolve your claim before a set deadline. WARNING: Failing to abide by a statute of limitations will permanently bar your right to a recovery. Generally, South Carolina has a statute of limitations of three years from the date of the incident that caused the injury, which is subject to exceptions that can shorten or lengthen the deadline. By way of example only, claims against governmental entities carry even shorter deadlines. An experienced attorney can review the facts and circumstances of what happened to you or your loved one to determine which legal deadlines apply.
Legal deadlines are not the only reasons for seeking legal assistance as soon as possible. Many personal injury plaintiffs are surprised to learn that in some cases, their own automobile policies can provide valuable coverage such as Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist, Personal injury protection (PIP), and/or Medical Payments (MedPay) coverage. These potentially helpful policies often come with their own contractual notification deadlines; and a failure to comply with these deadlines can trigger denial of coverage. Additionally, with the passage of time, witnesses can become difficult to locate, or their recollection can become less reliable. It is possible for important evidence to disappear or become destroyed. Our attorneys at Montlick & Associates make sure all vital deadlines are met, and, when appropriate, interview critical witnesses and work to preserve important evidence.

Damages Available in a South Carolina Auto Accident Case
One of the most critical stages of any personal injury claim is determining its value. Our lawyers pursue all types of damages that our clients are entitled to under the law, based on the specific facts and circumstances, which may include compensation for:
- Past present and future medical expenses;
- Past, present and future lost income and lost or diminished capacity to work;
- Physical pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Loss of Consortium (a derivative claim made by the injured victim’s spouse)
- Punitive damages, depending on the egregiousness of the defendant’s conduct
- Wrongful death damages, including the full value of the life of the decedent, burial expenses, and others.
At the beginning of a car accident case, it is usually not possible to determine a precise value of the claim. The reason for this is that there are many factors that contribute to case value, such as, by way of example only, the nature and severity of the injury, whether the plaintiff is temporarily or permanently disabled, the strength of liability, the amount of medical expenses and lost wages, and the relevant facts and applicable law, to name a few. However, our attorneys can usually provide a range of predicted case value once all of the evidence has been assembled, we have learned the extent and long-term effects of the injury, we have reviewed all medical records and expenses, and evaluated the applicable law and the strength of the evidence
