)-- Shelly Leeke Law Firm, LLC is pleased to announce that experienced personal injury lawyer Shelly M. Leeke has authored a book entitled, "The South Carolina Accident Book: Avoid the Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Injury Case." The book was written for South Carolina residents, and is meant to be an informative, practical, and easy to read guide for accident victims and motorists. The book addresses various aspects of the insurance claims and litigation processes that are common in personal injury cases, and is being offered free to residents in South Carolina.
The book covers important topics, such as, "What is a Personal Injury or Accident Case?", "Should I talk to the insurance company about my case?", and "Do I really need an attorney?" The book also discusses in depth the steps to take after an accident, the critical mistakes that can destroy your injury case, medical treatment considerations, why you may not even need an attorney for your case, and the legal process involved in resolving a personal injury claim. The book includes fifteen chapters spanning some 75 pages.
"Most of my clients come to me after having been involved in a devastating accident. I've seen many unfortunate situations where an injured accident victim was taken advantage of by the insurance company. Too often, the accident victim has made a serious mistake in their case before they seek the advice of an attorney. Accident victims have questions that need answers immediately. They need useful information available to them before they hire an attorney or speak with an insurance adjustor," said Leeke.
Leeke says that she also wrote the book to provide accident victims with accurate information about insurance claims and the legal process. For instance, the book addresses common myths associated with accident claims and it offers an inside look at tactics used by the insurance companies to devalue accident claims.
The book has been published by Word Association Press and is available for $16.95 at Amazon.com. As a public service, and for a limited time only, residents in South Carolina will receive a free copy of the book by ordering it at TheSouthCarolinaAccidentBook.com
