Achieving Financial Recovery
after Serious Injuries and Wrongful Deaths in Charleston, South Carolina

The phrase “personal injury” is a legal term referring to physical injuries and financial losses resulting from another person’s reckless, careless actions, or intentional wrongdoing. Under South Carolina law, a person who suffers a personal injury may recover money and compensation for their immediate and long-term medical care, lost wages, and lost earning potential. Individuals can make claims directly with negligent parties or they can make claims with negligent parties’ insurers. The personal injury lawyers at the Clekis Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina may be able to help you with your case in these ways. Our personal injury lawyers understand how insurance adjusters arrive at estimates and settlement amounts. We can carefully review your losses, bills, and expenses to arrive at a fair estimate of what your claim is worth and can then take steps to provide insurance adjusters with the information they need to offer you the settlement you may deserve under the law.

If a person has died as the result of another’s negligence (a “wrongful death”), family members may seek compensation for their loss. Families of victims able to make a wrongful death claim include spouses, children, parents, and other family members and parties who relied financially on the person who passed away. Families may be able to seek compensation for lost earning capacity, medical bills a loved one sustained before passing away, and for funeral and burial expenses.

In order to receive compensation from an insurance company, or from a negligent party, you must be able to prove three things:

  • The extent of your damages
  • How the harm was caused, and
  • That the other party was liable

The Clekis Law Firm can review your medical bills and rehabilitation expenses and estimate the value of future medical bills and rehabilitation costs. We can estimate the future value of lost wages and also account for wages you may have already lost as a result of your accident. We can also estimate your pain and suffering damages. While these damages may seem less concrete, they are important because serious injury can interfere with a person’s life in many ways. It can prevent you from working, can prevent you from caring for children and family, and can prevent you from enjoying former life activities you once enjoyed.
