Spartanburg, SC asked in Car Accidents for South Carolina

Q: The other party's insurance company said they would be keeping in touch with me but I've heard nothing. Could I sue?

I was in an accident on 8/8. The other party's insurance contacted me on 8/20 and told me they would be keeping in touch with me. I've left her voicemails. She hasn't returned my calls. I just continue to get her voicemail which says "Welcome to our voicemail box system. You have reached the voicemail of 15102.." I pushed the option for the operator as well as the company directory and nothing happens. It just takes me back to the greeting for her voicemail box. When I talked to her on 8/20, I didn't catch her name or the name of the insurance company she was calling from. When I googled the number nothing came up as far as a company's name. (I googled my work phone number and the name of the business automatically came up.) At this point I don't know whether to believe if this is an actual insurance company or not. If I don't hear anything from the other party's insurance by this week could I seek legal proceedings from the owner of the van or the driver of the van?

A: Don’t talk to the insurance company. They are only looking to string you along until you get frustrated and give up or say something that hurts your case.

You should seek at an attorney to assist you immediately.

A: You patiently waited this long. At this point, you could arrange a consult with a South Carolina attorney. Most attorneys in this field offer free initial consults and work on a contingency basis. Good luck
