FAQs

  • What is a personal injury case?

    A personal injury case is just that:  a case involving injury to a person caused by someone else’s fault (negligence).  A typical personal injury case can vary from an automobile accident to medical malpractice. Using automobile accidents as an example, if you are in a fault state, such as South Carolina, and you’ve been injured by a driver who failed to exercise reasonable care whilst they were driving, personal injury law declares that you can recoup your losses.

  • Is there any other basis for personal injury besides negligence?

    Yes.

    • Strict liability holds designers and manufacturers strictly liable for personal injuries resulting from a defective product. In strict liability cases, the injured person does not have to prove the manufacturer’s negligence but instead, needs to show that the product was designed, manufactured, or marketed in a way that made it unreasonably dangerous when it was used as intended.
    • Intentional wrongs are also a basis for a personal injury case. For example, if someone hits or attacks you, you may be able to file a suit for battery or assault. While offenders of intentional torts can be held criminally liable for their actions, a tort case is a civil proceeding in court brought by an individual or entity and is separate from a criminal charge brought by the government or state.
  • What do you get when you win a personal injury lawsuit?

    We will fight for you to be awarded the damages you deserve for you injury. It will depend on the individual case, but damages can include compensation for expenses such as medical bills and loss of wages, as well as compensation for future wage losses. What’s more, it also can compensate you for any physical pain and suffering as well as any physical disfigurement or disability resulting from your injury.

  • What does it mean to settle a case?

    When you settle a case, you will be asked to sign a release which excuses the other side of any liability. This means that you accept compensation (money) in return for dropping any action against the person who caused you injury. We will provide you with the best advice to decide whether you should accept the settlement offer.

    A settlement can take place at any point in a lawsuit, including before a jury reaches a verdict, after a verdict, or even if there is an appeal from a verdict.

  • Will the person who caused my injury get punished?

    No, a tort case is a civil proceeding. Punishment in the form of jail or fines only comes from criminal cases, so defendants in civil actions for personal injury will not receive jail terms or stiff fines as punishment. However, in certain unusual cases, if the defendant’s conduct is so wrong that it amounts to complete indifference or recklessness, then you may be able to recover extra money damages from the defendant for punishment--so called “punitive” damages.

  • What is the time limit for personal injury claims?

    A time limit, also known as a statute of limitation, governs the period during which you must file a personal injury lawsuit after the event or your injury, depending on the type of case or circumstances. The statute of limitation varies between states, but, in South Carolina, for a personal injury case, you generally have three years to file your case against private individuals or entities. In South Carolina cases against government entities (state, county, city), the statute of limitations deadline is generally two years.  While there may be other exceptions or longer deadlines sometimes, like for children or people who are incompetent, you cannot take this for granted.  If you miss the statutory deadline for your type of case, your case will be is thrown out of court.
