When You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney


Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury claim, you might need the expertise of skilled Charleston, personal injury attorney. If the circumstances surrounding your injury involve complex legal rules to resolve, or if your injuries are serious, or if the insurance company refuses to settle in good faith, hiring an attorney to help you get the compensation you need is worth it.

Below is a list of circumstances you should seriously consider hiring an attorney:

  • Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice claims are extremely complex, to have a valid claim, you must prove the doctor was not acting within reasonable duty of care. To prove this, you must provide expert testimony of a medical professional in the same medical practice area and geographic location as the individual you’re filing suit against. Additionally, you must also gather your medical records and other proof of the malpractice. A skilled Charleston personal injury attorney can help you navigate the complexities of this type of personal injury case.
  • Toxic Chemical Exposure: We use chemicals in everything from food production to vehicle manufacturing. Often, workers become ill due to contaminants in the water, soil, or air. Businesses that use chemicals can have comprehensive legal teams hired to protect them from personal injury lawsuits, which is why working with an attorney through this process is crucial.
  • Insurance Company Won’t Pay: At Berthold Law Firm, PLLC, we are most contacted by clients who are frustrated by an insurance company that refuses to resolve their claims in good faith. Our attorneys have extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies.
