If you or someone you love was injured in a motorcycle accident in Columbia, S.C., you may qualify to seek financial recovery from the driver responsible. If you were hurt or a family member was fatally injured, a Columbia motorcycle accident lawyer from our team can help you prove the at-fault driver’s negligence. Additionally, we can help you establish your right to compensation and calculate the value of your expenses and losses.
When you are ready to seek a claim or lawsuit, our case evaluation team at Anastopoulo Law Firm will help you compile and organize the evidence. We will also present it to the at-fault driver or their insurance company to help steer settlement negotiations in your favor. If necessary, we will present your case in court if we cannot reach a settlement agreement. Lastly, we begin each with a complimentary case review.
Our Personal Injury Team Can Help Resolve Your Case
When you pursue the driver who caused your motorcycle accident for compensation, the state requires you to prove their negligence. Because the time you have to do so is limited, our team gets to work on building your case right away. So, you focus on getting better. We help you seek to prove:
- The cause of the accident
- The at-fault driver’s negligence
- The financial value of your case
As our team works through each phase of the case, we will update you with any progress and present any settlement offers you receive. Additionally, we help you weigh the feasibility of each settlement offer. While avoiding a trial can save money and time, you should not feel obligated to settle for less than your case’s value. Our team will not hesitate to go to court if necessary to fight for your financial recovery.
We Handle Case-Related Paperwork and All Communications for You
Our motorcycle accident lawyer can help you establish proof of the at-fault driver’s negligence in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident in Columbia. Doing so will involve a plethora of forms and documents that demand time and attention to detail. You will need both supporting evidence and paperwork outlining the claim or lawsuit.
Moreover, compiling these documents on your own can be a time-consuming undertaking. When you hire our Columbia team to represent you, we will obtain and organize the paperwork for you. For instance:
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Crash report
- Salary records
- Written prognosis
- Medication list
- Photos and videos
Also, we will help you obtain witness statements and other types of evidence. You will also likely receive communications from the at-fault party and their representatives. To avoid giving the other party any statements or information they could use against you, you can direct them to speak with us on your behalf.
Determining Your Case’s Potential Value
We can also help you assign an accurate financial value to your case. Using the bills, estimates, and receipts that we collect during the investigation, we will work to prove the value of your recoverable damages. For example, we usually consider the following types of recoverable damages:
- Property damage or destruction
- Physical disability or disfigurement
- Known and anticipated income loss
- Known and anticipated medical care
- Physical and mental pain and suffering
Our case evaluation team at Anastopoulo Law Firm can also help you establish the cost of funeral expenses and other wrongful death damages if your loved one was a motorcycle accident fatality.
Resolve Your Case without Going to Court
Our goal when representing you is to help resolve your personal injury case with a financial settlement rather than a lengthy trial. However, you will make the final decision on whether to accept any settlement offer you receive. To guide you toward an informed decision, our team will ensure that you:
- Obtain, complete, and submit insurance claim forms
- Understand the benefits and advantages of each offer
- Understand the finality of accepting a settlement
- Ensure you do not accept a speedy yet flawed offer
We work hard to have the case resolved in your favor so that you can avoid the time and expense of a trial whenever possible. However, we will also help you continue your fight for compensation in court if you do not receive a fair settlement offer.
We will File Your Case within South Carolina’s Statute of Limitations
To protect your ability to resolve the case in court, we also ensure the statute of limitations is met and your right to recovery is not put at avoidable risk.
Your right to file a personal injury lawsuit in South Carolina has a time limit. You generally have three years to file, according to S.C. Ann § 15-3-530. The same statute and timeline apply if a member of your family lost their life in the accident, and you file a wrongful death lawsuit. Failure to meet the wrongful death or personal injury filing deadline could prevent you from legally compelling the at-fault driver to compensate you.
The state-imposed timeline can be longer or shorter under certain circumstances. If these circumstances apply to your case, our team will inform you of the adjusted filing deadline you are required to meet. Given enough notice of your intent to seek compensation, we will work hard to ensure the filing deadline is met and your right to file your lawsuit is safeguarded.
