Under South Carolina law, you may seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, permanent impairment, and a number of other losses if someone else's negligence caused you harm. Personal injury cases differ in value based on these variables, as well as the venue in which the accident occurred. For instance, some South Carolina juries are very conservative, and do not provide much money for physical pain or mental anguish. Other juries are more willing to allow compensation for damages such as lost quality of life.
Don't trust an insurance company to properly determine the value your claim. Likewise, I would not sign any settlement agreements until at least consulting with an attorney. If you have any questions about a personal injury case in South Carolina - be it your case's value, the statute of limitations, or any other issue - call my Columbia office today at 803-790-2800 for a free consultation.
