From careless drivers to unsafe areas to unforeseeable accidents, we all face dozens of risks every day. All it takes is one instance of being in the wrong place at the wrong time to change your life forever, no matter how careful or responsible you’ve been. The law gives you the right to recover the damages you’ve suffered due to another person’s carelessness, but often the process can be overwhelming. What damages can you recover, and how much are they worth? If there are multiple people involved, which ones should you sue? What forms do you have to file with the court, and how soon?
The Elrod Pope Law Firm can answer those questions for you, standing by your side to guide you through the complicated and often confusing requirements of the legal system. We will take care of the details—collecting and preserving evidence, deposing witnesses, filing your case, and responding to objections—while keeping you informed and in control. With over 50 years of experience serving the citizens of South Carolina, we are fully familiar with all types of personal injury cases, requirements of the court system, and the damages you can recover.
Even in catastrophic cases which involve the most severe injuries—permanent impairment, paralysis, or even death—we will be there to help you. Cases with injuries like this can be even more difficult to evaluate, since many of the effects are lingering and long-term, and it’s uncertain when, if ever, the victim will recover. Damages such as future impairment, ongoing physical therapy, scarring, and loss of quality of life are difficult to assess on your own, and the opposing party’s insurance company will be pressing you into accepting an offer—an offer that may be well below what you would receive at court. And after you agree to settle, it’s nearly impossible to get another dime for your injuries.
When you’ve been injured, you have enough to worry about without having to deal with the courts and insurance companies. Come to us at Elrod Pope Law Firm and let us take care of your case while you take care of yourself.
