Damages Available in a Carolina Forest Personal Injury Case
The amount of damages available in a personal injury claim depends on the details of the case and the extent of a victim’s injuries, as well as the amount of insurance coverage available. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, your injuries might be life-threatening or cause permanent and costly conditions that disrupt your life for a long time.
Compensation in personal injury cases is typically intended to help victims cover the wide range of damages they suffer, even long after an accident. Compensation might help cover things such as:
- Medical expenses – This might include outstanding medical bills for expenses like emergency room treatment, surgeries, doctor visits, hospitalization, medication, and ambulance transportation. Coverage might also involve ongoing care and future costs like rehabilitation, therapies, medical devices, surgeries, follow-up appointments, pain management, and disability accommodations.
- Income impacts – Accidents can keep victims from working for a short time, force them to change jobs, or even prevent them from ever being able to work again in the future. Compensation might cover things like income lost during recovery or the reduced ability to earn comparable wages in the future.
- Non-economic losses – Victims of tragic accidents suffer multiple impacts, not all of which have a specific dollar value attached. These non-economic injuries include things like mental anguish, emotional distress, pain, suffering, loss of consortium, and loss of ability to do activities they used to enjoy like sports or hobbies.
In addition, if your loved one was killed in an accident, then you might be eligible for wrongful death or survival damages. While no amount of compensation can fully make up for your loss, this compensation might help cover some of the damages from this traumatic event, such as funeral costs, lost income, loss of consortium, and loss of companionship.
SC Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims
Each state has special regulations that limit personal injury claims. In South Carolina, one of these regulations is the statute of limitations. Under this law, victims typically have only three years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury claim. If the deadline is missed, the courts will forever bar a claim unless a very narrow exception applies.
These laws aren’t completely straightforward. For example, the statute of limitations regulation is subject to some narrow exceptions that might mean you have more time to file a claim. It can be easy to mistakenly miss this filing deadline, so people who try to handle a claim on their own often miss out on compensation they’re owed for their injuries.
The knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Jebaily Law Firm can evaluate your case, help you understand which of these confusing regulations and exceptions might apply to your specific situation, and help you fight for your legal rights.
