Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Case
A car accident, slip and fall accident, nursing home abuse case, or other accidental injuries can leave you with lingering pain and discomfort and lasting financial upheaval. If the injuries you sustain are serious enough, they can prevent you from working, which could worsen your financial predicament.
According to S.C. Ann. § 15-32-210, you can recover your accident-related expenses and losses from the at-fault party, including:
- Economic damages, which can include ongoing medical care, ongoing income losses, reduced future earning ability, and property damage or destruction.
- Non-economic damages, which can include ongoing physical and emotional pain and suffering, lasting disabilities and disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life.
- Wrongful death damages, which can include compensation for your loved one’s final arrangements, your family’s pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
At Poulin | Willey | Anastopoulo, LLC., our accident lawyer in Dorchester will handle your case’s details, including collecting the evidence that can steer your case toward a financial settlement versus a lengthy trial.

What You Need to Know About Comparative Negligence
Before speaking to one of our team members, you should avoid speaking to anyone-particularly the at-fault party or their representative-about your accident and injuries. Anything you say, write or sign, or post on social media could later be misconstrued and used to decrease or eliminate your potential financial recovery.
According to S.C. Ann. § 15-38-15, if any portion of fault and liability is attributed to you, your damages will be reduced by a corresponding percentage. If half or more of the fault is attributed to you, you will not be allowed to recover any damages. Our Dorchester injury lawyer will ensure liability is accurately assigned.
We Make Sure Time Works for You, Not Against You
When you or a loved one is injured, or a loved one is fatally injured due to negligence, the state determines how much time you have to file a lawsuit against the at-fault or liable party.
According to S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, in South Carolina:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years from the date your accident occurred.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of your loved one’s demise.
If your case is one of medical malpractice, the statute of limitations is defined in S.C. Ann. § 15-3-545. It generally gives you up to three years from the date a medical error occurred or three years from the date it was discovered.
If you do not file your lawsuit within these time limits, you may not be able to file it at all, or it will be dismissed without ever being heard. Either of these outcomes means you will have no legal recourse that can compel the at-fault party to compensate you. To avoid this costly outcome, our legal team will ensure your case is filed on time.
