About Our South Carolina Car Accident Lawyer in Midlands or Lowcountry

Car Accidents

On any given day in South Carolina, millions of cars, tractor trailers and motorcycles traverse our roads, highways and interstate freeways crisscrossing the state. Thankfully, the large majority of drivers are courteous, experienced and safe. Unfortunately, negligent drivers are out there, causing thousands of accidents with injuries and fatalities every year.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident in South Carolina, don’t talk to an insurance representative until you have talked to us, the attorneys of Wilson Law Group, LLC. With offices in Bamberg County, Orangeburg County and Barnwell County, we are a team of experienced South Carolina car accident lawyers with a successful record of aggressively protecting the rights of people injured because of another driver’s negligence.

Not Sure Whether You Have A Case Against The Other Driver?

At roadway and highway speeds, it is often difficult to determine exactly what went wrong when an accident happens. Drivers on both sides are likely to deny the accusations and point fingers. Determining liability for causing the accident is often the first part of every personal injury case. Tractor trailer or log truck wrecks often need immediate action to protect your rights. We will review the circumstances, police reports and evidence to determine whether you have a valid claim against the other party for liability. We don’t charge anything for the investigation and promise to provide an honest appraisal of whether you have a claim for damages.

Car Accident FAQs

How long do Personal Injury Cases take?

It generally takes one year from the date a lawsuit is filed for that case to be called to trial.

Insurance companies often try to delay the process, resulting in cases not being called to trial for 18-24 months. Fortunately, most accident cases settle short of trial.

Are there limitations for a settlement claim in South Carolina?

South Carolina has set limitations on the settlement amounts for personal injury claims. Punitive damages may not exceed three times the amount of compensatory damages or $500 000.

Certain circumstances such as a felony conviction, the cap is four times compensatory damages or $2 million.

Is South Carolina a fault state?

South Carolina uses a fault based system for dealing with accidents.

In South Carolina with the fault scheme, the person at fault is the only one who is responsible, and an innocent driver’s insurance company does not necessarily need to be brought into the case.

Is South Carolina a Tort State?

South Carolina is a tort liability state, which means the not-at-fault person can pursue a claim against the at-fault party.

South Carolina is also comparative negligence, which means you can be barred from collecting for the percentage you contributed to the accident.

What is the statute of limitations in South Carolina?

You have three years to file a complaint for damages from a car accident, whether those damages stem from personal injury or damage to property.

If there is any kind of government or municipality involved, for example the collision was with an on duty police officer driving his police provided vehicle, then the statute of limitations is much shorter and you need to file specific papers to give the municipality notice.
