Frequently Asked Questions:

How much is my case worth?

To answer that question, there are a few considerations that must be made. The first is how much insurance does the at-fault driver have? The second consideration is, in addition to medical bills and lost wages, will you need future medical care, and if so, what is that cost? Also, you must consider whether or not the at-fault driver’s conduct was so reckless that the law will make them pay even more money.

How much will it cost me to hire Mr. Mobley?

That depends on the type of case you have. Auto accident cases, workers’ compensation cases and defective drug cases are based on the amount of settlement that Mr. Mobley will be able to acquire for you. This is a contingency fee and it ranges from 33% to 40% depending on whether your case goes to court. Criminal defense cases have varying degrees of cost based on how much time that your case will need to ensure that the proper defense is established for you.

Can I be fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim?

It is against the law in SC for your employer to fire you for filing a workers’ comp claim.

Why do I need a lawyer?

The insurance company’s goal is to give you the least amount of medical care at the cheapest cost. They will not advise you if your injury gets worse or if you need more medical treatment. A lawyer will look out for those issues and will make sure that you receive the best medical treatment possible.

What do I do if I get stopped for a DUI?

Once you are stopped, you will be arrested, no matter what you do. First, do not answer how much you have had to drink. Second, do not perform roadside sobriety tests. Third, do not take a breath test; refusing this test probably will get your license suspended, but a lawyer can get it reinstated for you.

Do I have to go to the doctor to have a case?

The value of your case is largely dependent on your medical bills. If your injuries need medical attention, it is highly advisable to seek the advice of a doctor.

Who will pay my medical bills while I’m hurt? My insurance? My attorney? Me?

You are still responsible for paying your medical bills, even if you can pay only $5 a month to avoid having your accounts go into collection; however, once your case settles, you will have the money in your pocket to pay your medical bills.

How long will my case take?

The time frame for settling a case has many variables that will affect how quickly your attorney can get through the process. It depends on how long you will need medical attention and how quickly the insurance company responds to the attorney’s request for a settlement.

After I’m hurt, how long do I have to file a case?

The statute of limitations on an auto accident is 3 years from the date that you knew you were injured.

Am I supposed to talk to the insurance company?

After being represented by an attorney, you will no longer need to speak with the insurance company. The attorney that you hire works for you and will speak to the insurance company on your behalf.
