What should I do if the other person's insurance company contacts me?A.You are not required to provide any information to the other party's insurance company, even if they try to give you the impression that you are. If you are contacted directly by the responsible party's insurance company, do not speak with them. Instead, reach out to your Charleston injury lawyer to discuss how much information (if any) it is safe to share with them.
Are personal injury settlements taxable?A.In general, no. If you have received a settlement that is intended to replace any out-of-pocket expenses you incurred as a result of your injuries, you will not be taxed on that money. However, there are exceptions to this rule. If you would like more information about what types of settlements are taxable and which are not, you should contact a tax professional.
How much money should I ask for in my personal injury settlement?A.The value of your settlement will vary depending on the extent of your injuries and the monetary/non-monetary damages incurred as a result of your injury. In order to get an accurate idea of what you should ask for in compensation, you should consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who is capable of determining what a fair settlement may be. There are many monetary aspects to your recovery that you may not have considered. Don't risk getting an unfair settlement! Contact Ellis Roberts Law today to schedule a free initial consultation!

In a personal injury claim, you will generally be dealing with the other party’s insurance company. Insurance companies are large, powerful, and equipped with their own legal counsel, which works tirelessly to mitigate the company’s liability. Without your own legal representation, you will be at a severe disadvantage and may not recover the full compensation you deserve.
That is why it is in your best interest to retain a competent and trusted Charleston personal injury attorney. Ellis Roberts knows how insurance companies operate and can anticipate how they will react along the way. Our team can build a strong claim that holds the insurance company responsible for paying out the full amount you are owed.
