Financial Compensation in a Personal Injury Case
On your own – especially while you are focused on recovery – it can be difficult to understand the scope of your financial damages. It can be even more difficult to understand the compensation S.C. Ann. § 15-32-210 allows you to recover.
At Poulin | Willey | Anastopoulo, LLC., we help you assess the value of your injuries and the financial expenses and losses that stem from them.
Recoverable Economic Damages
You can recover economic damages that have a direct cost. These damages have or will have an out-of-pocket, provable value. They include:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation services
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property repair or replacement
- In-home domestic services
While simple to assess, economic damages can be difficult to compile on your own. Our case assessment team will make sure no valid economic damages are overlooked or omitted.
Recoverable Non-Economic Damages
Non-economic, or intangible, damages are difficult to calculate. Our legal team will explain how we use your medical records and written diagnosis to assign a value to your:
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment
- Physical disfigurement
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
We will not tax you with proving the financial value of these recoverable damages. Instead, our personal injury team will explain how we reach an accurate value for these ongoing costs.
Recoverable Wrongful Death Damages
If your family lost a loved one because of negligence or carelessness, you have our deepest condolences. You also have our commitment to helping your family recover the following damages:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of society and companionship
- Loss of consortium and society
- Loss of parental guidance
We will explain the timeline for recovering these damages and the family members who are legally allowed to file a wrongful death action in South Carolina.

Assigning Liability in Your Personal Injury Case in Hampton, SC
Accurately assigning responsibility is critical because, in South Carolina, if ten percent of fault is attributed to you, your settlement or verdict will be reduced by ten percent. If more than half the fault is attributed to you, you will not be able to recover any damages at all.
Our Hampton injury lawyer makes sure the evidence we collect accurately assigns fault to prevent you from losing compensation. This task is an important part of representing you because S.C. Ann. § 15-38-15 will decrease your financial award according to the percentage of fault apportioned to you. We make sure the evidence tells the accident’s true story.

Your Hampton Personal Injury Case Has a Time Limit
If your personal injury case cannot be resolved with an insurance settlement, you may have to pursue compensation in court. In South Carolina, all personal injury cases have a filing deadline. The personal injury and wrongful death statutes of limitations are defined by S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530. You generally have three years to file your lawsuit. The primary difference is:
- The clock starts running on a personal injury lawsuit as soon as the accident occurs.
- The clock starts running on a wrongful death lawsuit on the date of demise, even if it is different from the date of the accident.
The medical malpractice statute of limitations is defined by S.C. Ann § 15-3-545 as generally three years from the date of the error or the date of discovery of the error.
Because it can fluctuate for a number of reasons, it can be hard to understand and comply with the statute of limitations. Our team will ensure it is met in your case and eliminate the costly risks of non-compliance.
