Frequently Asked Questions
What to Expect When You Contact Us
Clients of the Maxwell Law Firm will be treated with respect and dignity throughout the process. When you call our office, you will speak to an attorney who will discuss your claim with you. If needed, you will be set up to meet with that attorney for a free consultation. This allows you the opportunity to decide if you want our law firm to represent you in the matter. Please rest assured that should you hire us to handle your legal matter, we will take it seriously, properly investigate, and when appropriate, seek to get all the medical information about your claim so that we might fully protect your legal rights. We try and resolve matters without the need to go to court, but if those attempts fail, we will be prepared to go to a trial or hearing depending on your type of claim to make sure your rights are protected. We have two locations, Aiken and North Augusta, and will make things as convenient as possible for you, and would certainly be willing to come to your home or to your hospital room if that is necessary.
What is Workers' Compensation?
When you are injured at work, workers' compensation coverage should provide you medical care and if you are out of work for 7 days or more, it pays 2/3 of your salary up to a maximum rate set by state law. You may also be entitled to additional benefits if your problems are permanent.
What is Premises Liability?
a/k/a — Slip and Fall. To collect damages for personal injuries from a business/owner in S.C., you must prove the business/owner caused the unsafe condition or had notice of the unsafe condition and did not remedy it.
The Wreck Wasn't My Fault!
Why Should I File a Claim with My Insurance?
Medpay — Medical Payments or Medpay is optional automobile insurance coverage you can purchase on your policy that helps pay your medical bills when you are involved in a collision, regardless of who is at fault.
Full Coverage — Full coverage typically means that you have comprehensive and collision coverage to pay for damages to your vehicle.
Underinsured Coverage — If the at fault driver does not have enough insurance coverage to compensate you for your damages (medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering) purchasing underinsured coverage through your carrier can protect you.
