South Carolina Car Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been involved in a car accident anywhere in South Carolina, contact our South Carolina car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 32,000 people are killed and 2 million injured in car accidents each year. One-third of these accidents are speeding, while one-third of deaths are caused by drunk driving. Roads can be a dangerous place for anyone because accidents can also be caused by Nature or vehicle damage such as a flat tire.
Joel Bieber and his experienced team can walk you through the process. Our South Carolina car accident attorneys will ensure you have the evidence and information you need to enforce your claim if your injury or financial loss was caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person.
Car accidents are traumatic and often preventable. Unfortunately, there are so many factors that can lead to car accidents that are so common across the country.
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important that you see a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Also, make sure you do the following:
- Contact the police about the incident
- Never leave the scene of the accident
- Begin documenting information about the accident as soon as possible
- Seek legal counsel when disclosing details to the at-fault party’s insurance company
- Do not settle a claim with an insurance company
According to ISO, the average car accident payout is approximately $18,417. The last thing you want to do is settle too quickly, especially if your future earning potential is impacted by the accident. Insurance companies are banking that you’ll settle fast and under value. They may reach out to you for a recorded statement about the accident; do not provide this statement. At most, just provide general details about the damage to your vehicle and the location of the accident; that’s it.
This is why a South Carolina car accident lawyer from the Joel Bieber Firm is your best resource to make sure you receive compensation you’re rightfully entitled by ensuring your legal and procedural rights are protected. For instance, there are time limits for filing claims, known as “statutes of limitation,” and it is crucial that your claim is properly filed within those time limits. Our investigators will travel to wherever you are to collect the information required to help you with your case.

What’s REALLY Happening with
Auto Accident Claims
CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 aired a three-part report that revealed the underhanded tactics that many insurance companies are using to save themselves billions of dollars by reducing claims paid to minor-impact crash victims. These tactics – dubbed the “Three Ds,” delay, deny and defend – are discussed in the reports by former insurance industry insiders. CNN’s investigative team’s research and interviews revealed that multiple major insurance providers have employed these tactics during the course of the past 10 years. The result: 80 percent to 90 percent of accident victims settling without a fight for the small sums the companies offer. Often, these sums are as small as $50 and $100 when the victims are facing thousands of dollars lost.
