There might be a way to recover. But you probably need to hire an attorney that does injury cases. Bars in sc are not required to carry insurance so recovery can be a little tricky. I would be happy to talk to you about this in more detail over the phone. I am just outside of Columbia. Or you could hire a personal injury attorney.
Consult with an attorney. Most attorneys will not charge you anything to consult with you on a carwreck case.
My family and I were in a bad car wreck in November. A drunk driver turn in front of us on a 2 lane road. I hit him doing 50 mph. I have represented many people who have been injured in car accidents. The wreck gave me a very different view of how it works. It was amazing how nice the first adjuster was to me. That changes when you try to get what you are entitled to. Long story...
I am pretty sure of a way to do it. But to adequately address this question you would need to disclose your total assets. However, depending on how much you have, your question might be to complex for this forum.
I am not an estate planning lawyer, but I know enough about it to say that at if you have substantial assets, you do not want to try an protect them on your own. Especially, in South Carolina because it is hard to protect your assets from creditors in this state.
Many criminal defense attorneys will work out a payment plan for the criminal charge but most will want a substantial amount upfront. If you can't afford a criminal charge I would suggest doing is requesting a public defender.
I generally do not do many criminal cases in dillon. I would consider calling Henry "hank" Anderson in Florence.
However, I would be happy to talk to your sister about a possible civil case she might have against the cop.
You probably do have a claim. Although medical malpractice is a very complicated area so you certainly need a lawyer to assist you. I would be happy to meet with you in person for a free consultation.
As a practical matter, two things are generally needed to sue a doctor for medical malpractice in this state 1) objective signs of negligence where another is doctor is willing to testify that your doctor messed up and 2) damages sufficient where it is worth the great expense of filing a...
I would highly recommend you hiring a lawyer or requesting a public defender.
That being said it is unlikely that you will go to jail. Back when I represented a lot of defendants charged with shoplifting, I was often able to get the company to agree to drop the charge in exchange for restitution and a trespass notice. But at the time store employee's actually prosecuted the case. That ended around the time the SC Supreme Court came out with In Re Richland County Magistrate Court came out in...
If you have his plate number you should be able to get the info but I would suggest going to the ER ASAP for your pain. I would also contact a personal injury attorney ASAP. I am in Lexington but would be happy to discuss it with you.
