Frequently Asked Questions

Injury

Can I file a claim against the individual who caused my injury?

Typically, whenever an individual gets hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence, the injured individual can file a claim against the person or persons (or entity) that caused his or her injuries. In general, the success of personal injury claims greatly depends on a person’s liability, the damages incurred, and whether or not you will be able to collect from the negligent defendant or entity. Any injury attorney will tell you that even if you bear some of the fault for your injuries, you might still be entitled to receive partial damages.

How will I know if I need an attorney?

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.

Should I give the insurance company my statement without first speaking to an attorney?

When it comes to auto accidents, it is always in your best interest to provide the insurance company with only that information that is required by law. You will need to send the FR-10 form to the insurer after an auto accident, but you certainly should not make any recorded statements without the benefit of an attorney (unless you’re contractually required).

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?

We take cases on a contingency fee basis. You will owe no fees unless we win your case through a settlement or verdict. This means you do not have any upfront costs.

If I meet with you, will you charge me?

We offer a free case evaluation and consultation. We will discuss what happened to you, who was responsible, and the extent of any damages. You need not worry that you will be forced to pay for our initial meeting.

Has Jebaily handled cases similar to mine?

Our six attorneys have a wide range of practice areas. While each case we handle is unique, all of our clients benefit from our more than 100 years of shared legal experience.

Will I work with an attorney directly?

Yes. Your attorney will work with you from the beginning of your case through its resolution. We focus on personal, individualized service, and we will never see you as just another case number. You will get to know your lawyer as a person and work together as partners.

Who else will be involved in my case?

We work with various experts, including investigators, consultants, and medical experts who can supply vital information for your injury case. We mount a coordinated effort by a team dedicated to your case.

Will you be accessible and keep me informed about the progress of my case?

We believe that it is important to have a close working relationship with those we represent. We are available to answer your questions and concerns. Personal injury cases vary in the time it takes to reach a resolution, and there may be settlement offers, challenges,or other issues that arise. We will keep you fully informed as your case progresses toward resolution.

What should I bring to our first meeting?

If you have medical records, police reports, copies of claims you have filed, communications from the insurance companies, or other documents that could be helpful to your case, we urge you to bring then to our initial meeting.

How much is my case worth?

There is no way to determine the value of a case until we review the facts. Cases of serious or catastrophic injury involve large damages. A person who can no longer function as in the past may require ongoing medical care, years of rehabilitation, medical equipment, and a refit of the home, among other necessities. Pain and suffering and loss of quality of life also must be evaluated in monetary terms.

What if the insurance company offers a low settlement? What will your firm do?

We are steadfast in the pursuit of justice for our clients. Should the insurance company fail to make a fair offer within a reasonable period of time, we are more than willing to take the case to court for a decision. We know you deserve a fair settlement, and we don’t back down.

Should I give the insurance company access to my medical records?

Insurance companies are extremely interested in finding any way to reduce the value of your claim and will attempt to identify any medical condition that you had prior to the accident. We recommend that you refer any insurance company requests for records to your lawyer at Jebaily Law Firm where you rights and interests will be protected.

How Can Our Florence Personal Injury Lawyers Help You?

After you have been in an accident of any kind, you may need to report it to your own insurer. However, if any other party’s insurance company contacts you, we urge you to contact our office to get answers and get help.  In the meantime, we urge you to:


Not give a recorded statement

Not give a recorded statement

Not grant the insurer access to your medical records

Not sign away your rights.

The insurance company’s goal is to minimize the value of your claim. The insurer will try to use any statement you give or any medical condition in your records against you for its benefit.

We will discuss the facts of your case and review all legal options available to you, which may include personal injury damages as well as:

Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?

Not every accident in Florence and elsewhere in South Carolina will result in a personal injury claim. Several factors must be analyzed. One of those factors is whether you were harmed by the negligence of another person, company or government agency.

As we examine your case, Jebaily Law Firm will focus on the four elements that go into establishing negligence:


Duty

Duty – The other party must have owed a duty of care to you. For instance, drivers owe a duty to other motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists to follow the rules of the road and drive in a reasonable, prudent manner.


Breach

Breach – The other party must have failed to fulfill the duty of care owed to you. For example, a driver can breach a duty of care owed to others by speeding, running through a stop sign, driving drunk or texting while driving


Causation

Causation – The other party’s actions (or failure to act) must have caused harm to you. In other words, did you suffer injuries because another driver fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed into you? 


Damages

Damages – Finally, you must have suffered actual harm due to the party’s wrongful conduct such as bodily injuries that require extensive medical treatment. 

If the evidence in your case would satisfy each of those four elements, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the physical, emotional and financial harm you have sustained.

Jebaily Law Firm represents clients in personal injury claims that arise in many different scenarios, including those that involve:


Pedestrian and bicycle accidents 

Pedestrian and bicycle accidents 

Defective products. 


If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another, we can assist you with pursuing a slightly different type of legal action. Please see our section on wrongful death claims to learn more about those cases.

Past and future medical expenses

Lost income

Pain and suffering.

Pain and suffering.


If your spouse has suffered a loss of companionship and services due to your injuries, we may also pursue a separate but related claim for loss of consortium.

In some cases, punitive damages may be sought as well. These damages are awarded to punish and deter especially egregious misconduct rather than to compensate you for your losses.

Another factor that often comes into play in a personal injury claim is the amount of available insurance coverage. As we seek to maximize your financial recovery, Jebaily Law Firm will turn to all insurance policies that apply in your case, including your own coverage.

If an insurer makes a settlement offer to you, please allow Jebaily Law Firm to review the offer before you accept it. Based on our review of your case, we can advise you on whether the offer justly compensates you. You do not want to make the mistake of accepting an offer that falls short of fully covering your losses.
