After you or a loved one are involved in a collision, it is completely understandable that the last thing you want to deal with is the insurance company. However, more likely or not, the insurance company is already investigating and valuing your claim. So make sure you speak with a Charleston auto accident attorney before you have any conversation with an insurance adjuster to familiarize yourself with the process and to learn your rights.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, the at-fault driver should be responsible for your medical bills as well as any consequential damages, including lost wages. Additionally, an injured person could be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering as well as punitive damages.
Statistically speaking, texting and driving is as dangerous as drinking and driving! The law of South Carolina reflects this by allowing injured persons to recover punitive damages if hit by a distracted driver just as they would if hit by a drunk driver.
