If you were involved in an accident in South Carolina, be sure to get medical help first. Don’t avoid the medical examination even if you don’t have any visible injuries.
Collaborate with the police but don’t talk too much nor try to explain who is at fault. Wait for your attorney before you say anything.
Remember that whatever you say, would be used against you in court. If you can and if there were any witnesses, collect their information. Take photos of the accident, your injuries, and the plates of every car involved in the crash.
You need to get legal help from an experienced car accident attorney. It is not the best idea to go through the process on your own because insurance companies have a team of lawyers who will not let you win in the case.
This means either you would get a lower settlement or no settlement at all. Call our firm for any questions you have.
