By recovering monetary damages for the clients we represent, we hold negligent parties accountable for their reckless and careless actions. Our mission is to make South Carolina a safer place for all its citizens.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries, we want to help you prove fault and liability so you can receive compensation for medical bills, income loss, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys can handle all aspects of your case at no upfront cost to you. To learn more, you can reach out for a complimentary case review.
Proving Your Right to Recoverable Damages in Socastee
Your case must prove the four elements of negligence to recover compensation from another party after an accident. When we represent you, our team will gather evidence to prove the at-fault party:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Breached their duty
- Caused the accident that harmed you
- Caused you recoverable damages
According to S.C. Ann. § 15-32-210, you can hold the other party responsible for your damages if your case meets these criteria. We handle gathering, organizing, and submitting your evidence for you so you can focus on getting better.
Economic and Non-Economic Damages in South Carolina
After suffering injuries, you can seek two types of damages from the liable party: economic and non-economic. Economic damages have a defined monetary value and usually cost something out of pocket. They include:
- All injury-related medical expenses
- All injury-related loss of income
- Property damage or destruction costs
- In-home medical or domestic help
- Treatment-related travel expenses
If your family lost a loved one due to an accident, we would be honored to help you seek compensation. You could recover for their funeral and burial expenses, loss of household support, and intangible losses outlined in the next section.
Non-Economic or Non-Monetary Based Damages
Your injuries can also make you eligible for non-economic damages. These have an indeterminate financial value, so we help you calculate their worth based on the severity and impact of your injuries. Non-economic damages include:
- Diminished quality of life
- Mental and emotional trauma
- Ongoing pain and suffering
Your wrongful death damages could also entitle you to compensation for the loss of your loved one’s society, companionship, and consortium.

Your Potential Lawsuit Has a Time Limit
You generally have three years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in South Carolina, according to S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530. If you fail to comply with this statute of limitations, or deadline, you put your right to request compensation at risk.
Missing the filing deadline will likely prohibit you from filing a lawsuit at all. Even if you manage to file after the statute expires, the party named in your lawsuit can request an immediate dismissal, which the court is likely to grant.
That means you will have no legal method of compelling the liable party to cover your damages. When our team at Hammack Law Firm represents you, we take great care to file before the statute of limitations expires.
