Claim Compensation Provides Money to Cover
Accident-Related Costs and Losses

Our team works hard on Spartanburg car accident cases with two primary goals in mind:

  • To hold the at-fault driver responsible for their negligent actions
  • To recover compensation based on our client’s injuries, losses, and expenses

Part of building our case against the other motorist or liable party includes gathering proof of our client’s damages. This includes economic and non-economic damages. Common examples include:

  • Medical evaluation and treatment
  • Future care
  • Other injury-related costs
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Rental car fees
  • Miscellaneous related costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other intangible losses

If your family member died from their car accident injuries, S.C. Ann. § 15-51-10 may allow you to recover additional compensation. We manage these wrongful death actions for our clients. Only the decedent’s personal representative can file, but the immediate family benefits by recovering an award that could help them cover:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of income and benefits
  • Loss of services handled by the decedent
  • Non-economic losses suffered by surviving family members, such as loss of companionship

Determining Your Spartanburg Car Accident Case’s Value

An essential part of your case will be when we determine the fair settlement range based on the damages you experienced and the strength of your evidence. We will consider various factors when estimating your claim’s value. This includes:

  • The other driver’s negligence
  • The kind of insurance available
  • The severity of your injuries
  • Other case facts

These factors will largely determine how much your claim may be worth. It can be challenging to estimate your claim’s value on your own. For instance, we often use complex formulas to assess pain and suffering damages.

Other considerations our team must think about when estimating a claim’s value include:

Comparative Negligence

In South Carolina, you cannot sue if you are more to blame for an accident than the other parties involved. Any shared fault will also reduce your financial recovery.

For example, if you were 10% responsible and your damages were $100,000, you would only be able to collect $90,000. If there are allegations of shared fault in your case, we will work to minimize or eliminate their impact and build a strong case to show that you are not to blame.

Economic Costs and Losses

While it may seem straightforward to determine the value of medical expenses and lost wages, this is not always true. Some individuals only consider the medical costs they have already incurred, unaware that their injuries may require long-term treatment and care.

At the same time, negligent parties are responsible for covering your past lost wages and your future lost income. This is especially true if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous job.

Non-Economic Damages

Pain and suffering damages are based on intangible losses, making them especially difficult to value. Non-economic damages may seem like the most “subjective” aspect of your personal injury claim, but these figures matter. They could easily double or even triple your claim’s value.

Individuals who suffer serious injuries in an accident may not be able to enjoy hobbies they once did. They also may not be able to participate in everyday activities with their family, and they may have to navigate a range of lifestyle changes. Pain and suffering damages compensate them for these troubles and more.

Navigating the Process to Recover Compensation

Most car accident claims settle with an insurance agreement. However, insurance adjusters will often offer victims and their families a lower settlement than they deserve and pressure them to settle. When individuals do not understand their claim’s full value, they may forfeit important compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages.

When Hammack Law Firm manages your claim, we will fight for a fair and just settlement based on the value of your case. If they do not pay it, we will sue the at-fault driver and go to trial.

Generally, S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530 gives us up to three years to sue a negligent motorist in a car accident case in Spartanburg. Exceptions exist that could alter this timeline, though. Plus, we understand you need money to pay your bills and help you cover lost wages as soon as possible. We can go to work on your case when you hire us to represent you.
