What you can expect from our Greenville injury attorneys

After an accident or injury, you may be searching for guidance on what to do next. Once you make a consultation with an attorney, you can expect to discuss the circumstances of your accident and injuries. Your Greenville lawyer will go over a variety of topics with you to gather details about your case, including things like:

  • When did your accident happen or when did your injury make itself known? Different injuries have different statutes of limitations, and you can be time barred from collecting compensation if you make your claim after the statute of limitations has passed. You should speak to an attorney as soon as possible after your accident because the statute of limitations can be as short as one year.
  • What were your initial injuries? Have they worsened over time? If you have any complications from your accident, like ongoing physical rehabilitation or surgeries, you may be eligible for additional compensation.
  • Are you keeping track of all your medical bills and expenses? Ensure you save and document all expenditures for hospital and doctor visits, prescriptions, medical treatments and therapy, as well as travel mileage to and from appointments a lengthy distance away.
  • Have you lost time from work? If you have had to take time off work to recover from your injuries and lost paychecks as a result, those losses can be included in your personal injury claim.
  • Are you experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder or emotional distress from the accident? Many injury victims suffer anxiety, depression, nightmares, or other issues after a traumatic experience. You may be eligible for pain and suffering compensation.

The attorneys at Merkel & Cocke, P.A. are committed to helping you hold the right people accountable for what happened – and ensuring they are not able to do it again.
