Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina
When a person suffers an injury that was caused by someone else’s mistakes, that individual may decide to take legal action to pursue compensation. When taking this first step towards compensation, it is important for a claimant to ask the right questions of any prospective legal advisor.
#1: ‘WHAT COMES NEXT?’
It is important for anyone filing a personal injury lawsuit to understand the legal process involved in these cases. By having a more complete understanding of the legal process, a claimant can better prepare themselves emotionally for the hard-fought legal battles ahead. Also, by understanding the legal process, a person can have more realistic expectations of what they may face during their case.
#2: ‘WHEN SHOULD I FILE?’
Most lawyers will try to get a claimant to file their injury claim as quickly as possible, and this is because of the statute of limitations. If a person waits too long to file their claim, they may not be allowed to pursue any legal action against the responsible party. A lawyer can help their client determine whether a claim still falls within the statute of limitations and roughly how much time a person has to file.
#3: ‘WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES?’
Compensation is the ultimate aim of most personal injury lawsuits, but there may also be additional outcomes or sentencing. By asking an attorney about what they can realistically expect from their personal injury lawsuit, a claimant can have a better perspective throughout his or her case.
