How We Help Anderson Car Accident Victims

We understand the civil claim and lawsuit process.

The time following a traumatic crash is not the time to attempt to learn South Carolina civil law. Studying the law takes years, and time is not on your side.

Insurance companies are formidable forces for accident victims to take on alone. While most cases settle out-of-court, negotiating for a fair settlement on your own is never a good idea.

In addition to personal injury cases, we help victims who have lost a close loved one due to negligence. A fatal drunk or distracted driving case involving a loved one is heartbreaking. Compensation cannot replace your loss but can, if successful, ease your financial burden and serve as a form of justice.

Personal injury and wrongful death cases are complex and critical matters following Anderson car accidents. Leave your case to those familiar with civil law and focus on your recovery or grief instead.

An Anderson, South Carolina, car accident caused by negligence changes your life. If a dangerous driver altered your quality of life forever, contact Whalen Montalvo Attorneys at Law for a free consultation today.
