Car Accident Lawsuits & Insurance Claims
If you've been in a car accident in South Carolina, our attorneys can help.
Through no fault of your own
Not all car accidents, of course, are serious. If you are lucky, you will escape a wreck with just a few bumps and bruises and a dented fender.
But if you are not as fortunate, a car wreck can result in serious, even permanent, injuries — through no fault of your own. This, in turn, can lead to dire financial consequences such as large medical bills, plus income lost while recovering from your injuries. In some cases, the ability to earn the same income as you did before the accident is greatly diminished.
Experience in all kinds of motor-vehicle cases
At M&G Personal Injury Group, we have represented clients in a wide variety of cases stemming from auto wrecks. We’ve helped those who have been the victims of negligent and reckless driving, including speeding, failure to yield right-of-way or to obey traffic signals, or driving aggressively. We also have experience with wrecks caused by impaired driving due to use of alcohol or drugs. Driving while distracted by talking on the phone or texting is a rising problem, and we are familiar with the intricacies of those cases as well.
Things can get particularly complicated when you are involved in a traffic accident while on the job – whether you drive for a living or occasionally get behind the wheel of a fleet vehicle for company business.
In most cases, work-related car wrecks are covered under South Carolina’s workers’ compensation system. However, if a third party is deemed to be responsible for the car crash, you may have an additional claim that can brought against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company. The dynamics between your workers’ compensation claim and your third-party claim can be tricky, and it is critical that both claims are handled by someone intimately acquainted with the relevant laws. At M&G Personal Injury Group, we are well-versed in both.
Don’t fight car insurance companies alone
Regardless of the cause or type of motor vehicle accident, injured people often face long-term health problems that require extensive hospitalization or ongoing treatment. A return to work or school can be delayed, adding another layer of complication to their lives. When the victims are children, such as one young client who was struck by a car while walking home from school, serious injuries can lead to a lifetime of expenses.
Our personal injury attorneys have the skills to help injured victims through any of these situations, so they that do not have to fight the insurance companies alone.
