Q. I’ve been in a car wreck and have been injured. What should I do?
A. If you are in a wreck, no matter how minor, it is important to always contact the police to report the incident and seek proper medical care, even if you are not certain you have been injured. Determination of fault and proper documentation of the wreck and injuries is crucial. Contact your automobile insurance company; however, if the wreck was not your fault, do not sign any documents or provide recorded statements to the at-fault driver’s insurance company until you have consulted with a personal injury attorney. We always provide initial consultations at no charge.
Q. What is the biggest mistake people make when it comes to estate planning?
A. The biggest mistake is having no plan at all. Having a will, a durable power of attorney, a health care power of attorney and a living will allows you to appoint someone to handle your affairs after you’ve passed away, which is very important.
Q. Do I need an attorney for my real estate closing in South Carolina?
A. Absolutely. South Carolina is what we call an “attorney closing state,” which means that you must have a licensed South Carolina attorney handle your real estate closing. Buying or selling a piece of real estate is a huge transaction. You definitely want to have an experienced attorney helping you through the process.
