Can I Get Compensation After a Car Accident?

The days following a collision are often very frightening for the drivers involved. While you can’t go back in time and stop the accident from happening; luckily, there are actions you can take after an accident to make the process a little easier.

There may be a lot of costs associated with an auto accident that you wouldn’t immediately consider such as medical expenses from doctor’s visits and ongoing care, lost wages if you can’t go back to work, property damage, and more.

One of the best things you can do for yourself following an auto accident, is contact an experienced personal injury firm. The Conover Law Firm can help you get the money you need to cover these expenses, damages, and more. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Charleston, SC, schedule your free consultation with our firm to learn more.

Compensation for Medical Expenses

Conover Law Firm will fight to get you compensated for any medical expenses incurred from the accident. Common examples include:

  • Ambulance Costs
  • Chiropractic Bills
  • Hospital Charges
  • Medications
  • Physical Therapy Bills, and more.

Compensation for Lost Wages

If the accident resulted in injuries preventing you from returning to work or forcing you to take a new role, then you may be eligible to receive payments for these lost wages and benefits. Beyond time missed from work, our firm will consider lost benefits, missed promotion opportunities, changes in position, and more as a result of the injuries sustained in the accident.

Our firm represents workers’ compensation cases, so we have an in-depth understanding of South Carolina law as it relates to workers’ rights. You can have confidence in your accident case knowing the Conover Law Firm will fight to get you the entirety of what you’re owed under South Carolina law.

Compensation for Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering refer to the physical and emotional trauma caused by an accident or injury. According to South Carolina law, these are “noneconomic damages” that arise from pain, suffering, inconvenience, physical impairment, disfigurement, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of society and companionship, injury to reputation, humiliation, fear, loss, illness, injury, and more.

Oftentimes, insurance companies and the other party’s legal team will challenge these claims because there is no identifiable dollar amount associated with pain and suffering. Conover Law Firm will fight to secure these damages on your behalf and will explain the entire claims process to you, so you never feel alone throughout the legal process.

How Much Money Will I Get?

This is probably the most frequent question our office gets; however, it’s impossible to answer accurately without understanding the specifics of your case. This number will depend on multiple factors, including:

  • The extent of your injuries and cost of associated medical bills
  • The other party’s insurance coverage
  • How much time you missed from work
  • The extent of property damage, and much more.

To get a better understanding of what you may be entitled to and for a more accurate number, please schedule your free consultation with the Conover Law Firm.
