CHARLESTON, S.C. - s4story -- Nearly 150,000 car accidents happen in South Carolina each year, but not all of the accident victims receive the compensation they deserve from their insurance companies. The #1 mistake those drivers make? They call their insurance companies before consulting an attorney.

If you are in an automobile accident, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure you're okay. If you need medical attention, that's your #1 priority.
  2. Call 911.
  3. Speak to an attorney BEFORE you call your insurance company.

Contacting an auto accident attorney for a free consultation before calling your insurance company will ensure that you maximize your chances of receiving the settlement you deserve. An insurance adjuster's job is to adjust your claim with the goal of paying you as little as possible. When you call to submit your claim, the adjuster will typically record what you say and may use your words as grounds for denying your claim later.

That includes making sure that their medical needs are addressed, their vehicle is repaired, and they are compensated for any missed work as a result of the accident.

So many of my clients have been loyal customers of these insurance companies for years, always paying their premiums on time, but when they actually need assistance they are unable to get the help they were promised." —Trey Harrell
