What is the general compensation of Whiplash and Mild Concussion from a rear-end collision in the state of South Carolina ?

Asked over 1 year ago - Myrtle Beach, SC

I was in a collision and not at fault. I was rear-ended at a red light; I went to the ER and was told I have Whiplash and a Mild concussion. I would like to know the general price range of this type of claim without being represented by an attorney at this time.

    Answered . A plethora of factors go into putting a number on a case. Without a lawyer, you'll likely get #1. no money or #2. a tiny nuisance settlement. Retain a personal injury lawyer to get maximum compensation. Good luck.

    Answered . These types of cases are extremely nuanced and have almost an unlimited number of variables that you will not be able to grasp if you have not spent a career doing so. If you want to make sure that you do NOT maximize the value of your case, handle it yourself.
