Simply the best! Mr. Geel is a lawyer who will fight and not be intimidated! It didn’t take long for him to see I had been screwed and appealed my case downtown. The Court of Appeals agreed and overturned my conviction!
I came to Meagan at the advice of another divorce attorney in Charleston and it was a great decision! She did everything she promised and went above and beyond in my circumstance. She is top notch in her communications as well as her ethics. My journey through the legal process was long and difficult but Meagan stood strongly throughout the whole process.
Mr. Geel was calm, cool and confident in handling my legal matter. He was always available to take my call and showed real concern for my troubles. In the courtroom, he displayed attributes more in keeping with a lawyer twice his age. There was never any fumbling or awkwardness; he was always prepared and negotiated a decision that was most favorable, on my behalf. Having been in a few scrapes before and having employed other lawyers, I was impressed by his overall knowledge and presence.
I called her office and SHE picked up, every time! She knew exactly what I needed to do to help processing my requests and fixing other lawyers mistakes. I cannot believe it took me this long to find her! Totally recommend! And yes, I will be hiring!
When someone else’s behavior causes you to have an accident, you may be entitled to compensation—for economic losses, such as medical bills, and non-economic losses, such as chronic pain or emotional trauma.
If the at-fault party has insurance, their policy may cover your damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies are notorious for offering inadequate settlements, since they are more concerned with profits than people. Our diligent Mount Pleasant attorneys can negotiate an appropriate personal injury settlement with insurance companies or serve as fearless litigators if negotiations break down.Contact Us now
Some states do not allow plaintiffs to recover damages if they are at all responsible for the accident. Others allow for recovery even when the plaintiff is 99 percent responsible for an accident.
When it comes to recovering damages, South Carolina takes a modified comparative negligence approach, with a 51 percent bar; in other words, you could receive compensation for injuries as long as you are not more responsible than the defendant for the accident.
Even though you could receive compensation if you are equally or less at fault, your award will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if the jury finds you to be 50 percent at fault for your accident and injuries, your $1 million award would be reduced to $500,000.
With some exceptions, a plaintiff in South Carolina typically has three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Reach out to our seasoned attorneys serving Mount Pleasant to learn more about modified comparative negligence, the statute of limitations on filing lawsuits, and how they could play a role in your personal injury case.
Following a personal injury, the key to recovering compensation is proving the party who caused your injuries was negligent. We can help with that.
At Geel & Gentry, LLC, we have extensive experience helping injured parties recover the damages they deserve for their suffering. While these payments cannot make up for what happened to you, they could help you address any costs related to your injuries.
Our attorneys work on a contingency basis, so you will not pay anything unless you receive a settlement. Call today to schedule your free consultation with a committed Mount Pleasant personal injury lawyer from Geel & Gentry, LLC.Contact Us now
