Biography

I have been representing those wrongfully injured in our State since 1990 and have never represented or defended an insurance company. The Hayes Law Firm is concerned about quality representation, not quantity. We aggressively represent our clients in and out of the court room. Please call me for a free consultation today to see if I can help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. The insurance companies and their adjusters have attorneys working for them, please make sure you have an attorney working for you. I have been doing this now for over 30 years and would be honored to meet with you.

Legal Answers
41 Questions Answered
Q. I’m being sued because of a traffic accident (7/27/21). My insurance company said that my insurance isn’t sufficient.
A: Ask your insurance agent, or if there has been a defense attorney assigned to you by your insurance company, ask that attorney what that means. Your insurance company is going to provide an attorney for you at no extra charge to frfff we no a possible lawsuit. It sounds like you may not have enough in coverage to compensate the injured party. The max they can get us what your policy provides for, unless you have a lot of assets. If there is obviously not enough coverage, you are insurance company will most probably just pay it. There are a lot of unknowns here. Suffice it to say, you will be OK because you have insurance coverage. Even if it is not enough that should satisfy any monetary requirements on your behalf. I wish you the best. I also suggest that you call your agent immediately to put your mind at ease. Carole
Q. I have a workers comp settlement awarded how much of that settlement can be garnished for back child support in SC
A: You are not going to like my answer but I believe 100% of it can be garnished for past child support. This is a big exception to the usual practice of no assignments on a worker's compensation settlement. I wish you the best. Carole
Q. When I file a complaint in the court of common pleas in SC, how long after do I have to wait to send my interrogatories?
A: Some people actually send the discovery requests with the complaint when it gets served. I would suggest waiting until they file an answer, wherein they will probably deny everything, and then send the interrogatories, request for production of documents and anything else you might want to send such as stipulations.
