Actions to Avoid
Your personal injury may be the fault of someone else's negligence, but your actions during the investigation process will determine your outcome. When you seek legal assistance for your personal injury you must be aware that the following actions will be carefully assessed to verify if your claim is true:
Careless disclosure of information - While your intentions may be valid, you should avoid speaking with anyone who is not your attorney. Due to the sensitive nature of the incident, you do not want your statements to be taken out of context and used against you at a later date.
Failure to disclose your abilities - Your injury may limit your ability to do some activities, however, you should inform your attorney and healthcare providers about the activities you can perform.
Missing the deadline to file your personal injury claim - You may think that you have a lot of time to submit a claim for your benefits, but the statutes of limitations in the state of South Carolina for personal injury claims is three years.
