Personal Injury FAQs
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
