Q: live in the county and have problems with drainage ditches what kind of lawyer do I need to speak with
our neighborhood flooded due to the drainage ditches backing up - we had nearly 24 inches of water under our house - it ruined our ac/heat unit and the ductwork. we have had this problem since hurricane Matthew nearly 5 years ago. we have been trying to get the dot to help but no one with help us. our homeowners insurance does not cover this because we did not have flood insurance.
A: A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. A starting point could be a civil litigation attorney who is familiar with technical property damage claims. Good luck
A: Addendum - if you are dealing with public entities, it's possible that there could be a requirement to file a notice(s) of claim(s). A local attorney should advise on this, as these elements can vary across the nation by jurisdiction. These notice of claim deadlines, if applicable, can be short (in the order of days). Good luck
