How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in South Carolina?
According to the South Carolina Code of Laws section 15-3-530, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of South Carolina is three years. This means you have three years from the date your injury occurred to file, or you will almost certainly lose your right to do so.
It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit, so it’s crucial you speak to an experienced Horry County personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can. Jeff Johnson Law offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!
If you are injured or hurt, you may be entitled to receive compensation in personal injury settlements and court verdicts for damages caused by someone else’s carelessness, negligence, recklessness, or even intentional actions. Some of the most common personal injury cases we handle include:
- Auto Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Wrongful Death
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Product Liability
Personal injury cases can be complicated and daunting, especially when having to deal with insurance companies whose main objective is to pay out as little as possible on liability claims. Without a trusted attorney on your side, you could be taken advantage of by their tactics designed to undermine your claim or its value.
Our attorney is here to maximize your compensation; we fight for the full value of your damages and losses, including:
- Past and future predicted medical expenses
- Loss of income/wages
- Property damage or loss, such as to your vehicle
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of earning capacity
- Permanent disability
- Any other losses relevant to your circumstances
Jeff ensures that your claim is backed by solid evidence that puts you in the strongest position for negotiation purposes. Most personal injury claims are resolved outside of court through settlements. However, if that process fails or does not yield fair results, we can take your case to trial. Jeff’s litigation background is impressive, and our firm’s commitment is to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
