Our Charleston personal injury lawyer will help you build a comprehensive case file that leads to financial recovery after an accident. Hammack Law Firm will help document and prove the value of your personal injury lawsuit. We will also prove the at-fault party’s negligence that forms the basis of your case and make sure you recoup the cost of treating your injuries, lost wages, compensation for your pain and suffering, and more.
Accidental injuries can lead to unexpected and unpredictable medical expenses. Even after identifying the person whose negligence led to your personal injuries, getting financial compensation can be a complex legal process. Our personal injury law firm helps by explaining the process in detail, starting with the legal elements of negligence and the potential compensation timeline.
Recoverable Damages We Will Pursue in Your Personal Injury Case
Each personal injury case we handle is unique, and its financial consequences will vary from client to client. While the value of your case can vary, the types of damages you can recover are similar. According to S.C. Ann § 15-32-210, your economic and non-economic damages are made up of the following:
- Known and anticipated medical bills
- Known and anticipated income loss
- Physical disability or impairment
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and suffering
If your accident damaged or destroyed your personal property, you can also recover compensation for its repair or replacement. In addition, if an accident resulted in the death of a loved one, you are entitled to recover their reasonable funeral and burial expenses. We will carefully review your damages before assigning a value to your case to ensure its accuracy before the settlement negotiation phase.
Your Case File Proves the at-Fault Party’s Liability in Your Personal Injury Claim
Since neither your representative nor representatives for the at-fault party witnessed your accident, we rely on the details of your case file to understand what occurred. We work hard to ensure yours is as complete as possible and tells the story from your perspective and that of any available witnesses. Your case file will contain:
- Medical records
- Accident report
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Witness statements
In addition to these documents that prove the at-fault party’s liability, many of them do double-duty by also proving the value of your personal injury claim. To further establish value, we make sure your evidence file includes your medical bills and employment records. Our legal team will help you request and organize these documents and submit them to representatives for the at-fault party.
There Are Strict Deadlines to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in South Carolina
Per S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, the statute of limitations in personal injury lawsuits is generally three years. However, defining the statute of limitations can be more complicated than you think because factors like the at-fault party’s age can mean a change to the filing deadline.
In addition, the same accident can result in different filing deadlines based on its outcome because the personal injury statute begins on the date of the accident. Conversely, the wrongful death statute begins on the date of the victim’s demise. Our team will help you understand how the statute of limitations works and how critical its compliance is to your case.
