Personal Injury Areas We Can Help You With

Here are just some of the types of cases we can handle on your behalf.

Understanding Columbia South Carolina Personal Injury Law

“Personal injury” is a legal term for any injury that a person undergoes at the hands of another. It covers injuries of the body, emotion and mind. “Personal injury cases” are legal disputes that are brought when one person experiences an injury due to the negligent actions (or lack of actions) by another. The objective of personal injury cases is for judging bodies to decide who is at fault for an injury and what the proper compensation is.

Personal injury law does not cover damage to property; property damage is not the same thing as “personal injury” law, but the two are often bundled together in cases. Personal injury cases are usually resolved one of two ways; with a lawsuit or an informal settlement. Lawsuits are federally recognized actions between a person who starts a claim (known as a “plaintiff”) and a defendant; in these cases, a judge or jury makes the decision regarding fault. A settlement is when both parties agree to a negotiation that transpires between attorneys and insuring agents.

After having a car accident I felt so hopeless and don’t know what do but everything went different after my cousin referred this law firm to me. It could have been a lot worse, but thank God that it wasn’t because of their help. I so grateful with this firm. Highly recommended.

Essential Information About Personal Injury Law

Here are a few more things to consider about your personal injury case.

First, that all cases have a deadline for filing. This is known as a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations varies state by state. In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit is three years. After this time, it is unlikely the civil court system will hear your case.

Personal injury law is not the same thing as criminal law. Forget about what you know from watching years of “Law and Order”. Personal injury law is “civil” law. In civil lawsuits, one person brings a case against another; in criminal law, cases are initiated by the government on behalf of an injured party.

South Carolina follows a rule of “modified comparative negligence.” This means that your compensation will depend on the amount you may have contributed (if in any way) to the accident that caused your injury. Personal injury law is not an example of definitive black and white! There’s a lot of gray involved in providing enough evidence to determine fault. This is one of the reasons it’s essential you work with a highly skilled personal injury attorney! Bill Green and Green Law Firm understands how to make your case rock solid, so you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.

There is a limit on compensation in South Carolina based on the type of personal injury case being pursued. For example, in medical malpractice, damages designed to compensate for pain and suffering are limited at $350,000 and $1.5 million overall.

South Carolina does allow punitive damages to be rewarded in personal injury cases. Punitive damages are compensation that is awarded to a plaintiff to punish the defendant for wrongdoing. For those in South Carolina, the limit on punitive damages is set at three times the actual damages, or $500,000.

How an Insurance Company Impacts Your Personal Injury Case

To put it plainly, insurance companies work very hard to pay you as little as possible! As a single entity, it is up to your skilled personal attorney to compile a tight and detail-oriented case to support you. Once an injury as occurred and has been reported, the insurance company that represents the defendant will snap into gear to protect their client. They will work tirelessly to do “damage control” and pay out as little as possible by trying to prove you are partially responsible for the accident. Remember, the more you are responsible, the less they are legally required to compensate you for:

  • Lost wages due to your having to take a break from work while recovering
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
