Why Choose Us?

The decision you make when selecting an attorney will determine the outcome of your case and in return, can affect your overall well-being. When you choose our Columbia car accident lawyer, Marc Brown, he will do everything he can to keep you informed, put your needs first, and make sure justice is served.

Your Rights After An Accident

After a car accident in Columbia, SC, or the surrounding areas, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. Because South Carolina is an at-fault car insurance state, you may seek compensation after an accident by:

  • Filing a claim with the insurance company of the at-fault driver
  • Filing a lawsuit directly against the at-fault driver
  • Filing a claim with your own insurance company if you maintain certain coverage types, such as Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UM Coverage) and/or Under-Insured
  • Motorist Coverage (UIM Coverage).

It is important to remember that you do not have to provide a written or recorded statement to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Also, it is not in your best interest to provide a medical records authorization to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Often, insurance companies will try to use this information to increase your degree of fault and minimize your degree of injury.

Types Of Car Accident Cases We Handle

At the Marc Brown Law Firm, we want you to know that we are here for you. We have experience navigating various types of complex car accident claims, including claims involving: Uninsured Drivers, hit and run accidents, drunk drivers, distracted drivers, severe injuries, fatal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, head-on, rollover, rear-end, side-swipe, and t-bone collisions, and more.

If you are involved in a car accident, you can count on the Marc Brown Law Firm to have the skillset and experience that your case demands.

Limits On Recovery

Note that while you have the right to recover compensation, your recovery can be limited by two factors:

  • Degree of fault. Typically, an at-fault driver (or their insurer) is responsible for paying for damages after a crash. If you contributed to the accident through negligence of your own, your award can be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault.
  • Statute of limitations. In South Carolina, you only have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim for damages. If you wait longer than three years, you can be barred from recovery. So contact an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
