You Are Entitled to Two Types of Recoverable Damages in Your Personal Injury Case
Were you or a family member injured in an accident in Florence? Our personal injury attorney can help you define your accident and prove it entitles you to compensation. Accidents that can lead to a personal injury claim include:
- Vehicle collisions
- Accidental falls
- Dog bites or attacks
- Slip and fall cases
- Wrongful death
- Product liability
- Physical assault
Our legal team will establish the at-fault party’s negligence by proving duty, breach, cause, and damages. We also help clarify the two types of damages you can recover – economic and non-economic, according to S.C. Ann § 15-32-210.
Defining Economic Damages
When you request economic damages after an accident, these are the damages that compensate you for the money you spent or will have to spend due to the injury accident. Economic damages include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future income loss
- Property damage or total loss
- Funeral and burial expenses, if applicable
We help you compile the bills and other documentation that prove the monetary value of your expenses. We also create a reasonable estimate of your upcoming costs to ensure your future medical and financial needs are met.
Defining Non-Economic Damages
Non-economic damages will include less easily calculated losses. Their value can vary depending on the extent, length, and outcome of your recovery and the arduousness of the recovery process. Non-economic damages include:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
We help you understand how these damages are assessed. We also make sure your case is not valued too low – which can leave you with out-of-pocket expenses – or too quickly – which can have the same result. Instead, we carefully calculate the value of your case and use that number when negotiating for a settlement in your favor.
South Carolina Law Limits Your Time to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
South Carolina imposes a statute of limitations – a predefined time limit – on filing all civil lawsuits. According to S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, you generally have three years to file:
- A personal injury lawsuit if you or someone you love was injured
- A wrongful death lawsuit if someone you love was fatally injured
If your lawsuit is not filed within the allotted time, you risk losing the ability to get compensation from the at-fault party at all. When we work together, we make sure the statute of limitations is met.
