Auto Accidents in Charleston

Auto accidents are a common occurrence in Charleston, often resulting from distracted driving, speeding, or reckless behavior. After an auto accident, it’s essential to remain calm and take the following steps:

  1. Ensure Safety: Move to a safe location if possible and check for injuries. Call 911 to report the accident and request medical assistance if needed.
  2. Document the Scene: Take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and any visible injuries. Collect contact information from witnesses.
  3. Exchange Information: Share contact and insurance details with the other driver(s) involved.
  4. File a Police Report: Ensure a police report is filed, as it will be crucial for insurance claims and any potential legal proceedings.
  5. Seek Medical Attention: Even if injuries seem minor, it’s important to get a medical evaluation to identify any potential issues and to have documentation for your case.
  6. Notify Your Insurance Company: Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible.
  7. Consult a Personal Injury Attorney: An experienced attorney can guide you through the process of filing a claim and ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare professionals fail to provide the standard of care expected, resulting in injury or harm to a patient. In Charleston, medical malpractice claims can arise from misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, or inadequate treatment. Victims of medical malpractice should:

  1. Seek a Second Opinion: Obtain a second opinion to understand the extent of the medical error.
  2. Gather Medical Records: Collect all relevant medical records and documentation related to the treatment.
  3. Consult a Medical Malpractice Attorney: An attorney specializing in medical malpractice can help assess the validity of your claim and guide you through the legal process.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, from public places to private properties. In Charleston, these accidents often result from hazardous conditions like wet floors, uneven surfaces, or poor lighting. After a slip and fall accident, you should:

  1. Report the Incident: Notify the property owner or manager immediately and request an incident report.
  2. Document the Scene: Take photos of the hazard that caused your fall and any injuries sustained.
  3. Seek Medical Attention: Get a medical evaluation to document your injuries.
  4. Consult a Personal Injury Attorney: An attorney can help determine liability and pursue compensation for your injuries.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims arise when a person dies due to the negligence or wrongful act of another. In Charleston, surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for their loss. The process involves:

  1. Filing a Claim: The claim must be filed by a personal representative of the deceased’s estate.
  2. Proving Negligence: Establish that the death was caused by the negligence or intentional act of another party.
  3. Calculating Damages: Assess the financial impact of the death, including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income, and emotional suffering.
  4. Consulting a Wrongful Death Attorney: An experienced attorney can provide guidance and representation to help secure fair compensation.

Navigating personal injury cases in Charleston, SC, requires a clear understanding of the legal processes and timely action. Whether dealing with auto accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall incidents, or wrongful death, consulting with knowledgeable attorneys at Mickelsen Dalton LLC can make a significant difference in achieving a favorable outcome. By taking the appropriate steps after an incident, individuals can protect their rights and work towards recovery and justice.
