Insurance Claims Following a Car Accident

After a car accident, victims are often preoccupied with any serious physical or emotional tolls they suffered during and after the accident. However, there comes a time after every accident when the financial costs begin to become a pressing concern. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, insured drivers will fortunately have much of their financial impact mitigated by a qualifying insurance claim. If your insurance company attempts to reduce or altogether forgo the payment of your claim, you may be left in a frightening situation with financial costs you can’t afford.

Fortunately, you do not have to face this situation alone. An experienced insurance claims attorney can help you file a claim or appeal a denied claim if your insurance company tries to act in bad faith and resist paying you the money you need.

When You Need an Attorney

If your insurance company or another driver’s insurance company attempts to engage in one or more of the following behaviors, an experienced legal advisor may be necessary:

  • If an insurance claims adjuster attempts to pressure you to take a quick but unfair settlement
  • If the compensation for valid, accident-related medical costs is inadequate
  • Should South Carolina’s statute of limitations prevent you from challenging a settlement claim

When insurance companies are coercive and unfair in their interactions with their policyholders, an experienced insurance claims attorney may be necessary to pursue financial restitution.
