Compensation Available in a Personal Injury Case

Blythewood Personal Injury AttorneysThe compensation you recover will depend on multiple factors, such as the severity of your injury, the determination of who was at fault for the accident, and the total value of your expenses and other losses.

You could file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company and receive a settlement to compensate you for accident-related losses, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Property damage

You might also recover punitive damages. However, this form of compensation is only available in a personal injury lawsuit. You must provide clear and convincing evidence of the defendant’s wanton, willful, or reckless conduct for the court to make an award of this type to you.

Some accidents are traumatic and have fatal consequences. If you lost a family member due to someone else’s wrongdoing, you might be entitled to compensation in a wrongful death case.

Only the administrator or executor of the deceased’s estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit. The recovered compensation might cover losses, such as:

  • Lost financial support and benefits
  • Medical bills and costs related to the fatal injury or illness
  • Pain and suffering endured by surviving family
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of the deceased’s companionship, care, and protection
  • Loss of judgment, experience, and knowledge the deceased can no longer provide

Frequently Asked Questions

The Blythewood personal injury attorneys of Goings Law Firm, LLC understand the confusion of pursuing legal action after an accident. The process can be complex to handle on your own. You should not take on a personal injury case without the help of an experienced lawyer.

Below are the most common questions clients ask us. You should review them so you can prepare yourself for what you might face while seeking compensation from the at-fault party.

Can I talk to the insurance company about my claim?

If the at-fault party’s insurance carrier contacts you, avoid discussing the details of your claim with them. You don’t have to speak with them about the accident, your injury, or any other information associated with the case.

Insurance companies want to avoid paying claims by any means possible. If they can find a reason to offer a lowball settlement or deny your claim entirely, they will. That means they might try to obtain information from you that they can use as evidence against you.

Inform the insurance adjuster you hired Goings Law Firm, LLC and give them our contact information. We can communicate with them on your behalf, so you don’t risk saying the wrong thing.

What should I do if I can’t afford to hire an attorney?

At Goings Law Firm, LLC, we know the financial burden that follows being injured in an accident. Many people can’t afford the cost of treatment and legal fees. However, you don’t have to worry about additional expenses when you hire us.

Our personal injury attorneys in Blythewood, SC, take cases on contingency. That means you don’t have to pay us upfront to represent you in your personal injury case. We won’t expect you to pay our legal fees unless we secure compensation for you.

How much time do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

South Carolina has a statute of limitations for personal injury cases that allows a three-year timeframe to file suit. That means you must file your lawsuit within three years from the date of the accident.

Two exceptions could potentially toll the statute of limitations, meaning you could delay or extend the timeframe. These exceptions include:

  • Disability – If you are under 18 years old or deemed mentally insane at the time of the accident, the period of your disability will not be part of the allotted time for filing suit. However, you cannot pursue your case beyond one year after the disability ceases or five years for any disability except infancy.
  • Out of state – If the defendant leaves South Carolina before you file suit and remains absent from the state for at least one year, their absence will not count towards the three-year timeframe.
