Personal injury law involves injury or death suffered by a person due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another. If you have been injured in an accident, you may feel lost. Who will pay your medical bills? What will you do if you are unable to return to work? Insurance Companies may try to pressure you into accepting a settlement offer, but keep in mind that these offers are generally far less than they should be. Insurance companies are businesses, and they prioritize profits over your wellbeing. A good personal injury attorney will ensure that you receive the compensation and reimbursement you deserve. While most personal injury cases do end in a settlement, it is critical that your personal injury attorney is capable and willing to argue your case at trial. It is your attorney’s ability to effectively try the case that ensures an appropriate settlement offer is made.

What is Negligence?
A person has been negligent in South Carolina if he or she breaches a duty owed to another. If the breach results in an injury, then the injured party may be entitled to damages. A personal injury attorney can help resolve these issues.
South Carolina is a comparative negligence state. This means that even if you contributed to the cause of your injury, you may still, and often are, entitled to damages.
Types of Personal Injury Claims:
- Automobile Accidents: Car, Motorcycle, and Trucking accidents cause thousands of injuries and deaths annually. While actual damages are available if the at-fault driver was acting negligently or was violating traffic laws or driving recklessly, then you may have the right to seek punitive damages for the injuries you have suffered.
- Slip and Fall Accidents: Property owners are required to keep properties free of dangerous conditions and defects. This includes maintaining stairs, cleaning up spills, de-icing sidewalks, as well as preventing any other dangerous conditions and defects. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, then the property owner, whether it’s an individual, a business, or a government agency, may be liable for any damages you sustained.
- Wrongful Death: Often the negligence, recklessness or intentional wrongdoing of another leads to the death of someone we know. If you believe a loved one died as the result of these types of wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss.
- Product Liability: Unsafe products can cause catastrophic injuries. Manufacturers, distributors, and marketers are required to maintain standards when constructing products and advertising them. If a defective product causes injury to a person, that person may seek damages from the company or companies responsible.
