What Damages Can Hammack Law Firm Help Me Recover in My Accident Case?
The goal of an insurance claim or lawsuit is to hold the at-fault parties accountable and recover compensation to cover our client’s related expenses and losses. Since we cannot undo the damage and injuries, this is the best way to get justice in a personal injury or auto accident case.
Our team identifies the financial impacts of a collision and puts a price on the intangible harm our clients suffered. We seek monetary damages for our clients based on their costs and losses that include:
- Medical bills and related expenses
- Future treatment and care costs
- Ongoing support and therapy as needed
- Lost wages and other income from time missed at work
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damages, such as replacement of a totaled car
- Pain and suffering
- Other non-economic damages
Wrongful Death Cases Are Possible Following a Defective Part Accident
Under S.C. Ann. § 15-51-10, the representative for a late accident victim can file an action to seek compensation for the victim’s surviving family members. This is known as a wrongful death action. We extend warm condolences to you and your family if you lost your spouse, parent, child, or another close family member. Our team is here to help with your legal needs when you are ready.

Who Is Liable for my Greenville Mechanical Defects Accident and Injuries?
Your Greenville defective parts lawyer from Hammack Law Firm will investigate what happened to cause your collision and determine who is liable. When a part or vehicle component fails, the legally responsible parties could include:
- The designer of the defective part
- The component manufacturer
- The car company
- Another part distributor
For example, imagine you experienced a tire failure while driving on Interstate 85 North in Greenville County. The tires were new, and there was no indication of a problem before. During our investigation, we discovered that others had raised concerns about the rubber used in these tires, leading to several tread separations and injury accidents.
We may be able to use this information to:
- Build a case to prove a tire defect caused your crash
- Develop a strong argument to hold the tire manufacturer liable
- File a claim based on the manufacturer’s liability insurance
- Recover fair and just damages for you
According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS), vehicle defects caused less than 1% of all fatal crashes in the state in 2019 and 1.33% of all non-fatal accidents. While this is a small number, at Hammack Law Firm, we understand that these accidents do occur. We are here for those hurt in our community when they do.
Most cases settle out of court in a much shorter time than it would take to sue and go to trial. However, this is sometimes necessary to secure a just payout. If we need to sue the parts manufacturer or another liable party in your case, we likely have only three years to do so under S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530. Certain circumstances could reduce this timeline further.
