The aftermath of an accident can leave you with painful injuries, no way to work, a destroyed vehicle, and a reduced quality of life. When someone else injuries you, our lawyers can help you seek compensation. MDSW has the personal injury lawyers in Greenville you need to fight for what you’re owed.
Miller, Dawson, Sigal & Ward are also known as the Thumbs Up Guys because they’ve helped many accident victims like you recover money after accidents, sometimes to the tune of millions. With one free consultation, you can find out what your legal options are and how much your case is worth.
It’s Free to Talk to an Attorney in Greenville
Did you know it costs nothing to get a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer? Consultations help clients and lawyers figure out if they can work together. There’s more to picking a lawyer than picking a name off the internet.
From our side, we want to make sure that we can assist you in your case. Perhaps your case is worth less money than you think, or there are legal circumstances that will make it hard for you to collect. Personal injury attorneys only get paid if you win, so we have to do our due diligence.
On your side, you want a law firm that has experience in the kind of personal injury situation you’re facing. If you got hurt slipping and falling in a supermarket, you wouldn’t want a lawyer that only handles car accident cases.
Lawyers know you may want to consult with multiple attorneys before choosing one, but don’t stop your search before you’ve talked with the Thumbs Up Guys.
Can You Get Results?
We’ve had many successful cases for our clients, including high-dollar ones. The more your case is worth, the more you’ll need a Greenville personal injury attorney’s help to get all the money you deserve. Some results we’ve gotten for our clients include:
- $4,000,000 settlement for a tractor-trailer collision
- $2,000,000 settlement for a tractor-trailer collision
- $825,000 for back surgery after a car accident
- $437,000 for a back injury and surgery after a car accident
Every case is unique. But we can give you an estimate of your case’s value during your consultation and work to help you get the most value out of your claim. Bring any evidence you have, like photos or medical records, to your consultation. That will help us make a better estimate.
If we feel we cannot help you, we will explain why and perhaps have advice on what you can do instead. There could be many reasons. For instance, if your total damages fall under the small claims limit, that may be a better route to get compensation than hiring a lawyer.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
All people deserve personal injury representation, so we will charge you nothing to use our services. Instead, you’ll sign a contingency fee agreement that outlines what we’ll do for you and how much you’ll pay us if you win. If you end up getting nothing, we get paid nothing.
Contingency fees are a percentage of the final amount you win from your settlement or court-awarded judgment. That percentage varies from lawyer to lawyer and also on how far you take your case. A case that ends in a smooth settlement will be cheaper than taking one all the way to trial.
Our rates will ensure you get a quite sizeable portion of your final settlement, and any lawyer worth their while will help you get enough compensation to cover their fees and still get you more than you could by facing the insurance companies on your own.
What Will My Personal Injury Lawyer Do for Me?
Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation you can in your case. Working with a personal injury lawyer gives you the best shot of getting it. When you work with MDSW, our personal injury lawyers in Greenville will do things like:
- Collect evidence necessary to make a strong claim for high compensation
- File all paperwork with the insurance company and the court to keep your case moving forward
- Act as a go-between so that you don’t have to deal with the court or with the insurance companies
- Search out ways to get compensation you may not know how to get, like pain and suffering damages
Insurance company adjusters know all kinds of tricks to get you to settle for less or even deny you compensation. By having one of our personal injury lawyers, we know the tricks and we know how to fight back to protect your interests. As soon as you’ve seen a doctor and confirmed you were injured, call us for a free consultation and case review.
What Are the Steps After Hiring a Lawyer?
After the consultation, if you hire your lawyer they’ll start gathering evidence to build your case. They’ll seek accident reports and medical records, and ask you questions about what happened and if you collected any evidence on your own like photographing the accident scene.
With the evidence, they’ll calculate the full value of your case and then approach the insurance adjuster to negotiate for the best possible deal they can. Throughout all this, all you need to worry about is recovery. If an insurance adjuster calls you, just refer them to your lawyer and let them handle it.
Nearly all personal injury cases settle out of court, but around 10% go to trial. If negotiations break down, your lawyer will prepare to take your case to trial so that a judge and jury can decide how much you get. Going to court is risky for both sides, but the rewards can be tremendous.
If you’ve won your case, we’ll get the check usually within two weeks. After deducting our fee, we will deposit the rest of the money into your bank account.
