Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina
If you have been injured by an attacker or drunk driver, he or she may be facing criminal charges. While it is satisfying to know that he or she will face consequences for his or her crimes, it does not help you with the medical costs of your injuries. Fortunately, you can still file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to criminal charges. Even if your attacker is found not guilty in a criminal court, you may still have grounds for a successful lawsuit.
