Personal injuries that occur in Charleston, as countrywide, often are due to negligence. It’s our job as your attorney to make sure the liable parties cover your medical costs and any financial losses.

Economic elements can include lost wages, medical treatment expenses and even the cost of a personal caretaker to assist you daily.
Types of Personal Injury Compensation in South Carolina
If you believe that your injuries were caused by another person who acted negligently, recklessly, or intentionally, you may be entitled to compensation for the financial, physical, and emotional consequences of that person’s actions.
In a typical personal injury lawsuit, the injured party (you) may seek economic, noneconomic, and punitive damages. The economic damages will include out-of-pocket expenses, medical bills, unemployment, and lost wages. Noneconomic damages might include pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, and a reduced enjoyment of life.
In some cases, an injury victim might receive punitive damages. Your law firm can help you request punitive damages. If a judge or jury decides to award the injured party punitive damages, the amount cannot be more than three times the economic and non-economic damages combined, or a total of $500,000 dollars. Punitive damages are meant to deter the defendant and others from similar acts.
