What is a contingency fee?

It’s standard practice for attorneys to charge a contingency fee when representing you in a personal injury case. With this type of agreement, the attorney and client agree that the attorney will take a certain percentage of the settlement or verdict as their fee for representation. If the case is unsuccessful or the client does not receive any money, the client does not owe the attorney anything. Additionally, the attorney covers upfront costs related to the case, and those costs are later deducted from any recovery obtained on behalf of the client.

Where is our firm located?

Our firm, Dial, Grimm & Rupert, has physical locations conveniently located in Columbia, Sumter, and Orangeburg, South Carolina.

What if I have an urgent question or request?

We understand that urgent questions and requests can arise at any time. Our team is always available to assist you promptly. You can reach out to us via phone, email, or through our website, and we will respond as quickly as possible to address your concerns.

What should I do if I’m injured at a store or restaurant?

If you slip and fall at a store or restaurant, get the name of the manager on duty and ensure an incident report is filed. Take pictures of the scene and any visible injuries, and get the names and contact information of any witnesses. Seek medical attention immediately if you are hurt. Documenting the conditions and your injuries will be critical for your case.

What should I do immediately after a wreck?

Immediately after a wreck, take pictures of the property damage, the wreck scene, and any visible injuries. If possible, get the names and contact information of any witnesses. Filing a police report is essential, and seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if your injuries seem minor. This documentation will be crucial for your claim.

What types of cases do we handle?

We handle a wide range of personal injury cases, including car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, wrongful death, product liability, workplace accidents, and premises liability. Our diverse experience enables us to provide expert legal representation for various types of injury claims.

Do I need a lawyer?

Insurance companies are experts at minimizing payouts. Without a knowledgeable attorney, you risk receiving a settlement far below what you deserve. An experienced personal injury attorney will understand the tactics they use and help you significantly increase your chances of receiving fair compensation.

Should I speak with the insurance company after an injury?

It’s advisable to avoid speaking directly with the insurance company after an injury. Insurance adjusters are trained to minimize payouts, and anything you say could be used against you. Instead, let your attorney handle all communications to protect your interests and ensure you receive fair compensation.

Do you charge for consultations?

No, we offer free consultations to discuss your case and explore your legal options. This allows us to understand your situation and provide initial guidance without any financial obligation on your part.

If my child is injured, how do I file a lawsuit for him or her?

As a parent, you can file a lawsuit on behalf of your minor child. To protect your child’s privacy, only their initials will be used publicly. Any settlement obtained for a minor must be used for their benefit. In South Carolina, if the settlement exceeds $15,000.00, the court requires the funds to be placed in a structured settlement, such as an annuity, or to appoint a conservator to manage the funds until the child reaches adulthood.

How much is my claim worth?

The value of your claim depends on several factors, including the extent of your injuries, your medical bills, the length of your recovery, and any lost wages. Other considerations include the location of the accident and the history of verdicts in that jurisdiction. Each personal injury claim is unique, and we will thoroughly assess all aspects of your case to determine its fair value.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit?

The statute of limitations (SOL) for personal injury claims varies by state. In South Carolina, you generally have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.  However, there are certain cases where the statute of limitations may be less than three years.  It’s crucial to act within this timeframe, as missing the deadline could result in losing your right to seek compensation.  It is important to seek an attorney immediately following your injury to make sure you do not miss this deadline.

How long will this take?

The duration of your case depends largely on the extent and duration of your medical treatment. We cannot begin negotiations until you have fully recovered or reached maximum medical improvement. Once we start negotiating with the insurance company, the process can take several months. If we need to file a lawsuit, it generally takes 18 months to 2 years to get to trial, though this timeframe can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the court’s schedule.

Will I have to go to court?

Not necessarily. Many personal injury cases are settled out of court through negotiations. Initially, we will gather all the necessary evidence and begin pre-suit negotiations with the insurance company. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we will file a lawsuit. This process includes several phases: discovery, where both parties exchange information; mediation, where an independent attorney attempts to resolve the case; and finally, trial preparation and trial if necessary. It’s important to be prepared for all possibilities, but many cases do settle before reaching the courtroom.

Why should I trust DGR with my case?
