Personal Injury, Auto Accidents and Workplace Injury Attorneys in Columbia, SC
Being injured in an auto accident, a slip and fall, a workplace accident or by a dog bite can be frightening for a number of reasons. The event itself is terrifying and the injuries you sustain are painful. You then have to deal with recovering from those injuries, which can be an arduous and tedious process. Some people with severe injuries may have permanent disabilities after their accident and will have to adjust their lifestyle accordingly, from finding a new career to hiring caregivers and finding new hobbies.
There are also the sometimes-crippling financial impacts that result from injury accidents.

How We Investigate Personal Injury Cases
Gathering evidence and building a case foundation based on facts is key to prevailing in any personal injury case. Insurance companies won’t want to pay you the money you deserve, even if you think it’s a pretty cut and dry situation. You may be right in your assessment, but that doesn’t mean the insurance company will be happy to part with their money.
We know where to look for evidence, combing police reports, accident photos, video evidence and witness testimony. Our team of attorneys and investigators will develop a clear and concise timeline of events to prove who took what actions and how those negligent actions caused your injury. We’ll also clearly show the repercussions of your injury, from your initial treatment costs to the future expenses you’ll have due to your injury.
You may have lost money due to being unable to work, and we’ll argue for your lost wages as well. Some people with long term disabilities resulting from a personal injury also experience negative repercussions for their career prospects, and you should also be compensated for the lost potential earnings you would have been able to realize had the culpable party not injured you.
Once we’ve built up a wealth of evidence, we will begin negotiating with the insurance company and their attorneys. In our experience, our preparedness, reputation and detail-oriented approach is often intimidating enough that the insurance company decides its in their best interest to offer you a fair settlement. They won’t want to pay expensive attorney fees for a trial they’re likely to end up losing.
However, things aren’t always that easy. Many personal injury attorneys would prefer to settle, even if the amount is less than their client deserves, because they don’t want to go to trial and fight the deep-pocketed insurance companies.
Our Columbia personal injury law firm has no such qualms. If you aren’t receiving a fair settlement offer, our trial attorneys will happily take your case to trial. We will argue your case in front of a judge and jury and aggressively pursue the money you need to pay for your injuries and move on with your life.
