Personal Injury Compensation

Recompense for Your Losses

Personal injury compensation covers economic and noneconomic losses. However, a case for damages must be made where the victim points the finger at a specific party (or more than one party) for unlawful acts that led to their injuries.

Personal injury lawyers in Mauldin who handle personal injury cases take their time to build strong cases that compel insurance companies to pay what they owe. They perform detailed investigations and analyses and gather evidence to demonstrate that it was an unlawful act that is to blame for their client’s injuries. Without this proof, there can be no compensation.

With a strong case, the personal injury lawyer in Mauldin handling the case can recover a variety of damages, including compensation for:

  • Medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering.

At Whalen Montalvo, our goal is to recover every form of compensation you are entitled to under the laws of South Carolina, even punitive damages. Although rare, punitive damages may be awarded in cases involving especially reckless or intentional behavior.

Whalen Montalvo personal injury lawyers in Mauldin never back down when our clients deserve more compensation for their losses

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

No matter what the context, people have a general duty to exercise reasonable care toward others. For this reason, personal injury cases are quite varied. At Whalen Montalvo, we handle many different types of personal injury cases.

Car Accident

Tens of thousands of people are injured each year on South Carolina roads. Sadly, the number of injuries and deaths need not be so high. However, negligent and reckless drivers make choices that put others’ lives in danger. We hold careless drivers accountable for their destruction.

Motorcycle Accident

We also fight for compensation for motorcycle accident victims, who face more significant injuries after accidents caused by unlawful acts. Due to the significant injuries they typically face, they need the aggressive advocacy we provide at Whalen Montalvo.

Truck Accident

Truck accident cases require extensive knowledge of trucking regulations and the operation of commercial trucks. The trucking accident lawyers at Whalen Montalvo confidently navigate the challenges in these cases to get their clients compensated.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the wrongful or unlawful acts of another. Our personal injury lawyers in Mauldin represent clients during this dark time in their lives and fight hard to recover the wrongful death compensation intended for them.

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Property owners whose negligence causes others to be injured can be held liable in many cases. Often, slip-and-fall accidents are the consequence of property owner negligence. For example, failing to remove ice or snow promptly from a walkway can lead to accidents and injuries for which the property owner may be held liable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Personal injury law has numerous categories and is often confusing for many. Below, we have included some of the most common personal injury questions our clients bring to us. We hope they provide you with some of the answers you’re looking for.  

Should I hire a personal injury attorney in Mauldin to represent me?

You should hire a Mauldin personal injury attorney to represent you if your goal is to recover appropriate compensation. Insurance companies will not offer you a proper compensation payout. Instead, they will do what they can to get you to accept less than you are owed. Your personal injury lawyer in Mauldin knows how much personal injury cases are worth and how to compel insurance companies and defendants to pay what they owe.

What exactly do Mauldin personal injury attorneys do?

Mauldin personal injury lawyers advocate for the highest compensation payment possible under the law. More specifically, they meticulously gather evidence to build a strong case for compensation and use legal strategies and aggressive negotiation methods to recover more compensation than you would likely receive without a Mauldin personal injury lawyer.

How long will my personal injury case take my Mauldin personal injury attorney to resolve?

Your Mauldin personal injury attorney must first review the facts of your case in order to give you an approximate timeline for your claim. Generally, complex personal injury claims typically take longer than straightforward cases. Complexities that might make a case take longer to resolve include multiple plaintiffs or defendants, unclear liability, and serious injuries.

How long do I have to seek compensation for a personal injury in South Carolina?

South Carolina gives personal injury claimants three years to pursue compensation. After three years, insurance companies and defendants are no longer under an obligation to pay. If your claim is against a government agency or department, you have two years.

When a minor is injured, the minor has until their 19th birthday to take legal action for compensation. Additionally, medical malpractice victims who discover their harm after the date it was caused may have up to six years from that date to seek compensation.

Will my case go to trial?

Most personal injury claims don’t see the inside of a courtroom. However, each case is different. During your free initial consultation, your personal injury attorney in Mauldin will be in a better position to comment more on whether your case may need a trial.
