Representing Injury Victims Throughout South Carolina

At John Price Law Firm, LLC, we understand how traumatic an auto accident can be. In the blink of an eye, your life can be changed. If you suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another driver, we can help.

Both minor and serious accidents can leave a person with devastating injuries. Many accidents are avoidable and caused by negligent drivers. The leading causes of accidents with motor vehicles include: sleepy drivers, distracted drivers, drunk drivers, aggressive drivers and reckless speeding drivers. Drivers distracted by their smartphones has become a serious risk when driving on the roads. Reckless drivers, such as these, and other drivers who engage in things like road rage, intoxicated driving and any reckless driving in general, irresponsibly risk their own lives and the lives of others.

Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents can run from minor to fatal. Many victims of auto accidents aren’t able to go back to work or return to their normal daily activities. Lost wages, hospital bills and rehabilitation costs can add up quickly. Some of the most common injuries caused by auto accidents are:

Neck Injuries

Oftentimes an accident victim has been rear ended. This type of accident results in neck injuries. Victims can suffer from severe whiplash or neck strain, and in some cases even cervical dislocation or damaged disks.

Scarring

Scarring and disfigurement can be caused by accidents where chemicals spill, glass shatters or fires start. These kinds of scars can be devastating to an individual and damage confidence and self-esteem.

Broken Bones

Broken bones can happen in serious accidents and often take a long time to heal and extensive rehabilitation.

Amputations

This type of injury leaves the victim with a lifelong disability that will forever impact every aspect of that person’s life.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

During an accident a driver or passenger may hit their head on the steering wheel, dashboard or seat in front of them. Unfortunately, traumatic brain injury signs do not always show up immediately, and should be watched for in the hours and days following.

Back Injuries

The lower back is the most common area to be injured in a motor vehicle accident. Victims of a car accident can also suffer from herniated discs, sprained back and broken or fractured vertebrae. Back injuries often take months and even years to heal.

Damages You Can Claim After A Motorcycle Accident

In South Carolina, there are several types of compensation you can recover after a motorcycle accident. You shouldn’t have to pay for any of the repercussions of an accident caused by another party. The following are ways you can receive compensation.

From The Insurance Company Of The Party At Fault

Property damage: If there were damages to your vehicle during the accident, the party at fault’s insurance company is responsible for repairs to your vehicle and paying for the cost of a rental car while your vehicle is being fixed. If the cost of repairs exceeds 75% of what is considered the fair market value of the vehicle, your car is considered damaged beyond repair. If this is the case, the other party's insurance company is required to compensate you for what your car was worth.

Bodily injury and other loss: Once all medical treatment has been completed for your injuries, the other party's insurance company will most likely try to settle your case for a lump sum. Things you could be entitled to compensation for include: pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, disfigurement, and scars and other permanent injuries.

From Your Insurance Company

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: If the other party was uninsured or underinsured, you should receive compensation to the full extent of your coverage.

Payment For Medical Coverage: If your policy includes this coverage, your insurance company should pay your medical bills, up to the pre-selected coverage amount.

Collision Coverage: Sometimes, the at-fault party's insurance company takes a good amount of time to accept liability and pay you for the repairs to your car. If this happens, you can use your policy's collision coverage. You will have to initially pay the deductible, but can recover this as soon as the other party's insurance company accepts liability. If you are having trouble getting the compensation you deserve from the responsible party’s insurance company, don’t hesitate to contact a lawyer.

Punitive Damages

Along with compensatory damages, you may be eligible to receive punitive damages, if you are able to prove the driver at fault was reckless or negligent. These types of damages are usually awarded in cases where the driver responsible for the accident was driving while impaired.

Dealing with Insurance Companies After A Motorcycle Accident

Being involved in an accident can be very stressful. You may feel that you want to put it all behind you as quickly as possible, but this may not be in your best interest. Resist the urge to make a quick deal with the insurance companies. It may take some time for you to become fully aware of the extent of your injuries and the costs that have accrued. This is why insurance companies do not want you to speak to a lawyer. At John Price Law Firm we know how to handle the insurance companies, so you don’t have to play their games. We will fight to get you the highest amount possible.
