HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A CLAIM?

In order to have a personal injury claim, there must be a responsible negligent party. Meaning you must be able to prove another person is liable for you or your loved one’s pain and suffering. If you are unsure, our Abbeville personal injury attorneys are available for free consultations today.

SHOULD I SETTLE WITH AN INSURANCE ADJUSTER?

Remember, insurance companies never have your well-being and future in mind. Their goal is to provide you with the least amount of money required to resolve the matter. Their offer may seem decent, but after you take into account lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering their offer is likely far below the money you deserve. Consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure you are fairly compensated.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE MY CASE?

Every state has a specific statute of limitations. In South Caroline, you have 3 years to file a personal injury claim. Be warned though, insurance adjusters will likely try and rush you through processing your case. Their goal is to settle the case as quickly as possible for as little money as possible. You’ve suffered enough, and you deserve to be compensated for your pain. Consider contacting an Abbeville personal injury attorney who can help you recover fair compensation.

A MEMBER OF MY FAMILY WAS KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT. CAN I FILE A CLAIM ON THEIR BEHALF?

Yes. At Hite and Stone, we understand the traumatic, emotionally stressful time you may be going through after the death of a loved one due to the reckless actions of another. In legal terms, you would be filing a wrongful death case. Our attorneys understand no amount of restitution could recover for the loss of a loved one but we can help you pursue compensation to ensure your family can financially move forward.

I AM UNABLE TO WORK AFTER SUFFERING AN INJURY. CAN I GET COMPENSATION?

Yes. If you are injured and are unable to work due to the negligent actions of a co-worker, manager or other person at the job site, you could be compensated for lost wages.
