The Role of Liability in Your Bamberg, S.C., Personal Injury Case
To seek compensation from the person or entity who caused your accident and injuries, you have to prove their negligence. This means proving the at-fault party’s:
- Breach of duty
Our team helps you meet this requirement with evidence, including witness statements, police, accident, incident, and animal control reports, and medical records and bills. We compile the required evidence for you and submit it to the at-fault party and their insurer in an organized fashion.
If your case goes to court, we also prepare exhibits that complement the collected evidence and establish your right to compensation.
Comparative Negligence in Bamberg Personal Injury Cases
In South Carolina, comparative negligence laws can impact your recoverable damages. If any percentage of fault in the accident’s cause is attributed to you, any compensation you receive will be reduced by a corresponding percentage, according to S.C. Ann. § 15-38-15.
When our Bamberg injury lawyer represents you, we make sure the evidence shows the percentage of liability attributed to you to ensure any reduction of your compensation is not exaggerated.

The Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in South Carolina
Filing a personal injury lawsuit is a complicated legal matter. Even the statute of limitations-the state-mandated filing deadline-is complex, as many circumstances can lengthen or shorten it. On your own, it can be hard to determine the appropriate filing deadline.
One of the following statutes of limitations will apply to your potential lawsuit:
- C. Ann. § 15-3-530 defines the personal injury and wrongful death statutes of limitations and generally gives you three years to file either lawsuit.
- C. Ann. § 15-3-545 defines the medical malpractice statute of limitations and generally gives you three years from the error date or its discovery.
Failing to file your lawsuit on time could prevent you from filing it at all. Even if you do manage to file it after the deadline has expired, the at-fault party’s representative will ask to have it dismissed. Leave this concern to us-with sufficient notice, our legal team will ensure your case is filed on time.
