Not all cases require the use of an attorney. In fact, there are times when an attorney is not needed at all, such as in the case of very small claims. In South Carolina, a small claims court will handle claims of up to $5,000; therefore, if your injury is a small one that will not subject you to being incapacitated in any way (or require extensive medical care), you might want to settle the case on your own in a small claims court.
In the alternative, you may want to consult with an injury lawyer if you have sustained a major injury or if you’re unsure about the possible outcome of the injury incurred. These types of cases can be complicated, and one of our attorneys will have the legal know-how, the time, and the resources to effectively handle your claim. Any learned personal injury attorney also will be able to properly assess the value of your claim and fulfill all of the state rules, requirements and deadlines that must be followed.
