South Carolina Serious Injury Attorney
As the term implies, serious injuries are life-altering physical injuries. Paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, disfigurement and amputation are some of the more common serious injuries befalling South Carolinians. Vehicular accidents are the leading cause of serious injuries, but they're not the only cause. Falls, for example, are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries.
And although no amount of money can reverse the effects of a serious injury, money can help ensure those injured do not face financial hardships due to the lifelong economic and emotional burdens created by the injury. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury due to another person's negligence, Trey Cook Law can help make sure your rights are accounted for so that you can get properly compensated.
Initial Steps After Suffering a Serious Injury
The first thing you should do after any accident is tend to your medical needs. Nothing is more important than your health and safety. With a serious injury, that may very well mean weeks of intensive care. However, once your health is stabilized, you should seek legal guidance as soon as possible from a South Carolina personal injury attorney with experience dealing with serious injury cases. Ideally, you should talk to a personal injury lawyer before talking to anyone else about the accident, including any insurance agent or attorneys who may be representing other parties. As always, be sure not to sign any documents prior to consulting with an experienced attorney.
Call Trey Cook After Any Serious Injury
Anyone suffering from a serious injury has spent a lot of time with physicians and other health care providers. Those hospital stays and doctor visits add up quickly. On top of that, once you realize you’ll never regain the same ability or function you had before the accident, you can suddenly feel overwhelmed with anxiety, depression and stress. Turning to an attorney is probably the last thing on your mind, but when someone else’s negligence has caused you or a loved one to sustain a serious injury, you are entitled to compensation and you need an experienced attorney on your side.
It’s in your best interest to consult with an attorney like Trey Cook soon after any serious injury, as there are not only statutes of limitation to consider, but the window of time to fully investigate an accident scene and interview potential witnesses begins closing immediately after the accident.
