Do I Need an Attorney
Car wreck? Injured by a doctor? Child hurt at school? Parent injured at a nursing home? Loved one died at the hands of another person? Then the following question has probably crossed your mind: do I need to hire a lawyer? Based upon his experience as a South Carolina personal injury lawyer, attorney Andrew Littlejohn Johnson explains the top questions to ask yourself before retaining counsel.
Do you Need a Lawyer?
Some injured people in South Carolina do not need an attorney. If your case involves simple liability, minimal damages, fully restored health, and no insurance coverage questions, you likely don't need an attorney. However, if this is not the case, think about the following points.
1. Know the Law
If you don't know the ins and outs of car wreck laws, or gross negligence requirements in medical malpractice cases, or governmental immunity in school injury claims, and so on, you may need to hire an attorney.
2. Moving the Case Along
If you are having issues communicating with the adjuster, if you haven't fully analyzed your damages, or if you feel your medical treatment is not going well, you may need to speak with a lawyer.
3. Getting Full Value on a Case
If you are unsure whether you've fully evaluated the entirety of your damages, if you haven't spelled out your non-economic damages story, or if you have trouble analyzing the punitive exposure in your case, calling an attorney might be a smart move.
