Anderson Accident Injury Attorney

An accident can change your life in an instant. Accident injuries can include everything from soft tissue injuries (like joint and muscle damage) and broken bones to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation, and the loss of vision or hearing.

If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury because of someone else's negligence or misconduct — including drunk driving or distracted driving — you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, wrongful death or other damages. Filing a claim in court — a lawsuit — is the most common way of obtaining proper compensation for such damages.

The personal injury attorneys of Smith & Griffith, LLP, based in Anderson, South Carolina, handle serious accident cases that have affected our clients and their families. We can protect your legal rights and make sure you are treated fairly.

We Can Answer Your Questions | There Is No Fee And No Obligation

Do I have a case? Do I need an attorney? Can I afford to pay an attorney? Can I get compensation on my own? How much is the right amount? How long will the case take? These are common questions asked by injured people and their families. Our attorneys can answer them for you.

We recommend you talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer about your case. Well-intentioned friends and family are important, but if they are not experienced civil trial lawyers, you could be misdirected with regard to the legal aspects of your situation. If our attorneys believe you do not have a case — or that you can handle your claim on your own — we will tell you.

Get The Medical Care You Need | Leave The Legal Issues To A Professional

In general, we recommend the following actions after an accident:

  • Talk to a lawyer with the experience to help you explore all possible sources of financial recovery, which can include punitive damages, and thus maximize what you receive for your losses.
  • Seek appropriate medical treatment promptly. Your health is important. It is better to be safe than sorry.
  • Report the accident to the police. We can help with that.
  • Do not accept an insurance company's settlement offer regarding property damage (or anything else) until you have consulted a knowledgeable attorney.
