The duration of a personal injury case can vary depending on various factors, such as the complexity of the case and the willingness of the opposing party to negotiate. While some cases can be resolved through settlement negotiations within months, others may require litigation and can take longer. Rest assured, we will work diligently to resolve your case as efficiently as possible.
In a personal injury case, you may be eligible to receive compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage. Our experienced attorneys will assess the specific details of your case and help you pursue the maximum compensation you deserve.
Yes, you may still be able to file a personal injury claim even if you were partially at fault for the accident. South Carolina follows a modified comparative negligence rule, which means that as long as you are less than 51% at fault, you can still recover damages. However, your compensation may be reduced in proportion to your level of fault. We can evaluate your case and determine the best course of action to maximize your recovery.
For the most part, photographs of the scene usually won’t show proof of distracted driving – unless the other party was rendered unconscious by the accident with the phone in her hand. However, you (or a friend, family member, witness, or passenger) should still err on the side of too much evidence and take as many pictures, videos, and notes about the accident scene as you possibly can. Photos are great evidence for the attorneys and court to get a better idea of the accident scene.
Furthermore, in many cases, the police will respond to the scene and investigate the accident. If they ticket the other driver for distracted driving or texting while driving, which has been illegal in South Carolina since 2014, this can be used as proof of fault in your car accident claim.
Lastly, talk to nearby witnesses. It’s a longshot, but one of them may have noticed the other driver looking down at a phone or screen, rather than focusing on driving their car safely.
If you suffered an injury from a serious auto accident, you may be facing significant medical bills.
