Your Free Initial Consultation with Bauer & Metro, P.C.

During your initial consultation with Attorney Metro and/or Attorney Bauer, many questions will be answered. You will know exactly where you stand, and what to do next.

Some of the common questions we discuss are the following:

  • Do you have a viable case? (i.e. Is there liability against the Defendant?)
  • Is there insurance coverage for my claim?
  • How do I pay my medical bills?
  • Should I file a lawsuit?
  • How long do I have to take action?
  • How long will it be before I receive compensation?
  • How much is my case worth?

Questions Regarding Medical Treatment & Bills

Most injured people have urgent questions regarding their medical treatment and medical bills. While we are not physicians and cannot provide medical advice, our personal injury lawyers in Bluffton and Hilton Head will help find a doctor who can. In this day in age, many physicians refuse to treat victims of negligence fearing that litigation may ensue later.

However, there are some doctors that will treat you and we will provide referrals. If you have been injured and intend to pursue a personal injury claim, it is imperative that you seek treatment for your injuries not only for your own health benefit, but because you will need documentation when you make your claim.

No insurance company will accept liability and pay a claim without documentation. If your case goes to trial, medical documentation is crucial evidence for the jury.

We Collect No Fee Until Your Case Is Resolved or Won At Trial

Another common question is, "Am I required to pay my lawyer a retainer for representation?"

No. In personal injury matters and worker's compensation cases, Bauer & Metro, P.C., collects no attorney fee until your case is resolved or won at trial. South Carolina permits "contingency fee" agreements between lawyers and their clients. In other words, lawyers and their clients may agree that there is no fee unless we obtain compensation for you. The contingency fee depends on what type of case you have, and it is discussed in detail during your initial consultation. Contact us now to schedule an appointment.

Battling with Insurance Companies on Your Behalf

While no injured person is "required" to consult and/or retain an attorney, we highly recommend that you do. We hope you will take advantage and schedule a free consultation at Bauer & Metro, P.C., especially since you will receive valuable advice and information and it cost you nothing.

Dealing with insurance companies after an injury may be an unpleasant experience. More times than not, insurance companies do not make reasonable settlement offers to injured people without lawyers. It often seems the primary goal of the claims adjuster is to save money for the insurance company that he or she works for. That means they will pay you as little as possible. At the beginning of the case, an insurance company may ask you to offer a "recorded statement" or sign a written statement.

In some cases, the insurance company even offers to pay your existing medical bills immediately in exchange for your signed "Release" which effectively eliminates any further claim by you. Do not proceed without consulting an attorney first. During your initial consultation, Attorney Metro or Attorney Bauer will review such documents with you, and help you decide what is best. We will help you decide whether you should speak with an insurance company yourself, or have a lawyer speak on your behalf.

Proceeding without adequate information can seriously damage your claim & allow an insurance company to evade responsibility. Contact us and protect yourself.
