What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do
What does a personal injury attorney do? Well, the attorney answer is that “it depends.” Simply put, our job is to maximize the recovery of our clients by proving a defendant’s actions caused certain damages. However, the process is much more involved than this.
What Kind of Cases Involve Personal Injury
Personal injury cases involve a duty owed to a person, a breach of that duty by a third-party, and damages caused by the third-party's breach. This is (without an expanded explanation of proximate cause) the definition of a "tort" claim in South Carolina. Personal injury matters include the following causes of action:
dram shop cases
nursing home abuse and neglect
Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
That depends. If you know the law, have maximized your potential for recovery, and have a good idea of how to seize that potential, then you likely don’t need an attorney. If you have a question or two and need direction, you likely just need to speak with an attorney during one consultation. If you are unsure of the law and your damages, watch the below video, and then reach out to attorney Andrew Littlejohn Johnson: 803-764-4099.
