Damages and Compensation

Your damages are the losses that you have sustained as a result of your injury. South Carolina law allows you to seek compensation for a whole host of damages, both economic and non-economic. 

Economic damages include monetary losses, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Income loss
  • Home care expenses 
  • Property damage
  • End-of-life-care expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs

If you have already suffered a loss and have incurred expenses, keep track of the time you have missed work and gather all of your receipts and account balances. They will be instrumental in proving your losses. 

As far as non-economic damages are concerned, there are no receipts or balances. However, you can still recover valuable compensation for these losses.

Non-economic damages might include:

  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Inconvenience
  • Physical impairment
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of society and companionship
  • Loss of consortium

Instead of a set formula to calculate these damages, parties to the litigation use various factors to arrive at an acceptable compensation value, including the type and seriousness of the injury, its permanence, the strength of the evidence, and other relevant facts from the case. 

Types of Personal Injury Cases

It is practically impossible to count all of the different ways people are injured by others. With that being said, many personal injury cases fall into one of the following categories.

Traffic Accidents

According to the South Carolina Traffic Collision 2020 Edition Fact Book, a traffic collision resulting in injury occurred every 16 minutes in South Carolina, and a fatal collision every 9.1 hours. Many of these crashes are due to negligence, and many of them are caused by recklessness. 

Examples of negligent and reckless driving include:

  • Driving under the influence 
  • Driving distracted
  • Excessive speeding
  • Failure to yield, signal, or stop
  • Following too closely

For motorcycle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians, the risk of serious injury and death on the road is higher than those riding in cars and trucks. 

Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

You can hold a property owner or tenant liable when they fail to keep their premises reasonably safe. Conditions such as slippery aisles, broken deck planks, poorly lit walkways and areas, and cluttered pathways are all dangerous conditions that may lead to injuries. 

Third-Party Worksite Accidents

Workers’ injuries are settled using the workers’ compensation system. However, some injury victims may file lawsuits against third parties for negligent, reckless, or intentional harm. 

For example, a construction worker can sue a negligent motorist who injures them in addition to seeking workers’ compensation coverage.

Other common types of personal injury cases include medical malpractice and intentional torts. Doctors, nurses, technicians, and institutions can be held liable for negligence, as can those who assault or abuse another person.

Then, they’ll also identify if you’ve suffered from any non-economic forms of trauma. These are damages that represent non-financial forms of harm you experienced as a result of your accident. 

Common examples include pain and suffering, emotional anguish, or disfigurement. Once your lawyer has fully assessed the damage, they’ll begin collecting the evidence needed to prove these damages in your claim. 

Fighting for Compensation

Your lawyer’s final responsibility is to do everything in their power to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company of the party liable for your injuries. Insurance companies are notorious for minimizing payouts, which is why you need an experienced  Philadelphia personal injury lawyer negotiating on your behalf. 

The majority of cases successfully settle through compensation. If you’re among the small percentage for whom an insurance settlement proves impossible, your lawyer can file a lawsuit and take your case to court.
