This is Greenville, South Carolina Auto Accident Injury Attorney Dan Pruitt explaining what you should do if you’ve been involved in a car accident in South Carolina.
First, if you believe you have been injured, you should seek medical treatment. Far too often, people wait to get treated for their injuries, putting their health at risk. The best thing to do is to get medical treatment as soon as you can after an accident.
Second, remember that the insurance company is NOT working for your best interests. They are working on behalf of the person who caused the accident. So no matter how nice they may seem, you should never trust them to tell you what your rights are. Sometimes people make the costly mistake of signing forms or documents with the insurance company without consulting an attorney, and end up having trouble getting the insurance company to pay their medical bills in the future.
It’s best to seek the help an attorney who has experience dealing with insurance companies and their lawyers. Having an experienced professional fighting for you prevents the insurance company from taking advantage of you.
