Do I need a car accident attorney?

Do I need a car accident attorney?

Thousands of car accidents occur in South Carolina each year. After an accident you may be feeling shocked and overwhelmed. Moreover, you may have physical injuries and property damage and other financial burdens. To receive compensation for the accident, you may file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to pay for the damages.

You may file a lawsuit on your own as a pro se litigant. A pro se litigant is a person who acts as their own attorney in a lawsuit. South Carolina law requires pro se parties to handle a lawsuit in the same manner as an attorney. If you chose to represent yourself, you will have to follow the court rules and lawsuit procedures as well as meet all legal deadlines. However, car accident lawsuits are time-consuming and complex. They involve insurance providers and insurance law. They may also involve jurisdictional issues, multiple defendants and comparative negligence. When representing yourself you must competently understand the legal process.

For this reason, we recommend that you contact an experienced car accident attorney right away. Our team of attorneys has the training and knowledge to protect your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve. Do not do it alone or you might lose out on compensation.
