Automobile Liability Insurance Coverage in South Carolina

Many drivers carry only the minimum levels of liability coverage. Your own liability coverage likely contains uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. Calculating the full coverage available to you as the injured party in a motor vehicle accident is extremely complex. Our experienced attorneys can help you determine the full coverage available to you.

In certain situations, South Carolina law allows you to "stack" auto insurance coverage, giving you access to additional money to pay medical expenses, replace lost wages and compensate you for your pain and suffering.

In a recent case, our lawyers represented the estate of a deceased passenger and her injured infant son in an auto accident involving multiple vehicles. One driver fled the scene of the accident and was never identified or located. Each party had only minimal insurance coverage. However, by stacking liability, uninsured and underinsured coverage, our firm was able to obtain a total of $395,000 for our clients.

Dealing With Insurance Adjusters

The interests of insurance adjusters in any vehicle accident case are the opposite of your interests as an insured driver or passenger. To avoid saying anything that could be used to damage your case, you should talk with a lawyer as soon as possible.

Free Attorney Consultation

Car and other motor vehicle accident initial consultations are free, and our attorneys undertake most personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that you pay no out-of-pocket expenses for our legal representation. Our attorney fees and costs are paid from the settlement funds at the successful conclusion of your case. We don't receive any money unless we collect money for you.
