Seeking Compensation in an Orangeburg, SC Personal Injury Case

An injury can upend your life and cause many financial hardships. Our Orangeburg personal injury lawyers can identify all the ways the accident affected your life and seek fair financial recovery.

You could get compensation for:

Necessary Medical Bills

Depending on the extent of your injury, you could face a long and costly road to recovery.

Recoverable damages comprise:

  • Emergency room care
  • Hospitalizations
  • Ambulance services
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Medications
  • Visits to a doctor
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation

We can seek a settlement or award that compensates you for your past, present, and future medical needs. We want to secure compensation that accounts for each of your losses so your accident doesn’t stick you with any out-of-pocket expenses.

Lost Earnings

Being injured can cost you in more ways than one. Not only could you face expensive medical bills, but you could miss time from work.

In that case, you could seek damages for:

  • Missed paychecks
  • Missed opportunities to work
  • Missed tips or bonuses
  • Reduced future earning capacity

Intangible Losses

In addition to pursuing your financial losses, we can also help you recover damages for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Wrongful Death-Related Damages

If you lost a loved one after an accident, we offer our deepest condolences. Our team wants to manage your case while you spend time with your loved ones. Recoverable damages in this case could comprise funeral and burial expenses, end-of-life care costs, loss of consortium, and other out-of-pocket losses.

How Our Attorneys Can Handle Your Orangeburg Injury Case

Don’t spend time and energy dealing with an injury case while trying to heal. We can support your case by:

Investigating Your Accident and Gathering Evidence

To bring a successful personal injury case, we’ll need specific forms of evidence. We not only need to have a clear record of your injuries and damages but also a clear indication that the other party directly caused your injury.

Supporting evidence may include the police report, your medical records, employment records, and pay stubs. We may also garner evidence from surveillance camera footage, black box data, eyewitness testimony, and other sources.

Handling the Financial Recovery Process

With evidence in hand, we’ll seek compensation either through an insurance claim or a lawsuit. In many situations, we can seek fair financial recovery through settlement negotiations. The insurance settlement process is typically an efficient method of recovering damages.

However, we may file a lawsuit if this option works best for your case. You should also know that we may file a lawsuit if settlement negotiations don’t result in a fair offer.

Dealing with Each of Your Case’s Challenges

The other party’s representatives may make many attempts to challenge your case by alleging:

  • Your injuries aren’t as serious as you say.
  • Your injuries aren’t connected to the accident or the defendant’s actions.
  • Your relevant medical bills aren’t as extensive as you claim.

Our attorneys at The Louthian Firm Accident & Injury Lawyers know how to handle these and many other roadblocks plaintiffs face. We can advocate for your legal rights and protect your right to damages.

Our Lawyers Advocate for People Harmed in These Situations

Some of our firm’s practice areas include:

Car Accidents

In a car accident case, our Orangeburg car accident lawyers could pursue financial recovery through the liable driver’s insurance policy. We can also file a lawsuit.

Truck Accidents

Accidents involving large trucks frequently lead to life-altering injuries. If a trucker caused an accident, their employer could bear liability——and our Orangeburg truck accident lawyers could seek compensation through their corporate insurance policy.

Motorcycle Accidents

Even in cases where the motorcyclist wasn’t at fault, the other party may try to claim that the rider caused the accident. Our Orangeburg motorcycle accidents can address these allegations in your case if they arise. As a motorcyclist, you have the same rights as other road users.

Slip and Fall Accidents

A property owner (or another responsible party) could be liable for hazardous floor conditions that cause a slip and fall. Our Orangeburg slip and fall accident lawyers can help determine the liability in your accident. These hazards could include wet floors without proper warning signage, loose or improperly maintained flooring, or icy walkways.

Other Injury Accidents We Can Assist With

Our attorneys also have experience helping victims rebuild their lives after these accidents:

What Should I Do After an Injury Accident in Orangeburg?

Whether a car crash or slip and fall harms you, you need to do a few important things. Each of the following considerations could protect your right to damages, whether we file a lawsuit or negotiate with the insurer.

Get Medical Attention Promptly

Get medical attention as soon as possible after your injury. Doing so is crucial for your health—and crucial for your case.

That’s because you’ll need to show evidence that the accident (and the other party) caused your injuries. The longer you wait to get medical care, the more opportunity the other party has to dispute this link.

Listen to Your Doctors and Follow Through on Treatments

You might not want to take certain medications or attend all physical therapy sessions to heal adequately. However, listen to your doctors’ advice. If they tell you to get certain treatments, stay home to rest, or limit certain activities, do so.

Again, keep in mind that the other party may look at your medical records to dispute your right to compensation. They could try to argue that you neglected your care or made your injuries worse, which could lower your potential financial recovery.

Avoid Making Statements to the Insurance Company

If you get a call from the other party’s insurance company, refer the representative to your lawyer. Do not agree to provide a recorded statement. Your words could get taken out of context or otherwise hurt your case.

How Much Money Could I Receive From My Orangeburg Personal Injury Claim?

The amount you could recover depends on the unique circumstances of your case. After we review your case’s evidence, we can explain what constitutes a fair settlement.

Typically, your recovery amount depends on these factors:

  • How significantly the accident affected your life

  • Your day-to-day function
  • Your working ability

  • Drivers
  • Pedestrians
  • Cyclists
