Serving Aiken, Newberry, Lexington, Columbia SC

Get help today. Fight to get what you deserve.

It happens everyday. You’re going about life, minding your own business, and the next thing you know, you’re seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence.

What follows is pain and suffering, possibly time off from work and financial hardship.

Sound familiar?

 

If You’ve Been Injured Due To Someone Else’s Negligence

You may entitled to fair and just compensation.

In a perfect world the negligent party’s insurance company is supposed to compensate you, but will they? Insurance companies work hard to pay out as little as possible. They’re trying to protect their bottom line. In fact many insurance companies have a team of attorneys who are strategizing in an effort to minimize financial losses.

That’s why you need a personal injury attorney like Kent Collins to hold the insurance company accountable for treating you fairly and, if necessary, fight the company for what you deserve.

“It’s the insurance company’s job to pay you as little as possible.”

– Kent Collins

What to do when you’re seriously injured

When you’re in pain and emotionally vulnerable, it’s tempting to accept a monetary settlement quickly. But in trying to get the situation behind you, you could be passing up money that not only are you entitled to but that you may need to endure the pain, suffering and financial hardship now and in the future.

Here’s what to do when you’re injured …

  • Seek medical attention immediately for your injuries.
  • Write down what happened as soon as you can. Your memory of the events will gradually fade over time.
  • Keep all documents you receive. Police reports, letters from insurance companies, receipts and medical reports all prove what you did and help show you acted in good faith.
  • Speak with an attorney immediately. Don’t just take what an insurance company offers you. Remember, they want to pay you as little as you will accept.

Do I have a personal injury claim?

To have a legitimate personal injury case, you just have to meet these three criteria:

  1. You have an injury. This one is pretty straightforward.
  2. Someone else’s negligence caused your injury. This means another person must have caused your injury by acting negligently or failing to act when they should have.
  3. Your injury resulted in financial loss. Do you have medical bills, lost wages or a disability limiting your ability to work? If so, you have a financial loss.

If you aren’t sure whether your situation meets all three, just ask Kent. He can help you determine whether you have a valid claim.

Don’t wait!

If you need of a personal injury lawyer, don’t wait. Timing is critical because the insurance company or other responsible party is hard at work strategizing. And you should be, too. No matter how small you think your injury might be, a personal injury attorney can help you get the money you need to take care of yourself and your family while you cope with the injury and its effects.

Why choose Kent?

Whether it requires negotiating with insurance companies or responsible parties, or representing you in a court of law to defend your right to fair compensation, Kent is on your side.

He understands how the system works, the parties involved and will methodically work to help you get the compensation you deserve.

I was a skeptic at first. He told me to trust him. "There is a method to my madness " he told me. And bam! He was correct. He got my case dismissed. Thank you Mr. Collins!

Over the years Kent has assisted me with several legal matters and his performance has always been solid and sound. Being someone who has a record, I know it wasn't always easy for Kent, but let me just say he has helped me overcome several legal hurdles successfully. Perhaps the most important thing he did for me was help me resolve a licensing issue with the LLR, and enabled me to have a successful and productive career. I highly recommend his services to anyone who is need of solid legal counsel!
