Assigning Liability in Your Personal Injury Case in Lexington, S.C.
Our team will prove the four legally required elements of negligence that allow you to seek compensation. These include duty, breach, cause, and damages. We will collect evidence from:
- Lexington police, including reports and evidence gathered in their investigation
- Lexington Medical Center, including emergency, follow-up, and ongoing medical records
- Our independent canvass for smartphone, security, surveillance, and dashcam images
Evidence collection can be overwhelming since it will come from various sources and require a lot of legwork to uncover. Leave it to us. We will ensure your evidence file is comprehensive and complete.
We will also interview witnesses and make a careful record of your statements about how the accident occurred and the impact it has taken on your lifestyle and on your family.
What if the At-Fault Says I Caused the Accident?
The at-fault party or their insurance company will try hard to lessen their damages. One way that can happen is by saying you are fully or partially responsible for the accident. Here’s why:
- C. Ann. § 15-38-15(South Carolina’s comparative negligence law) reduces your financial award according to the percentage of fault assigned to you.
- Having more than 50% of the fault attributed to you means they do not have to compensate you in any amount.
Even partial fault will decrease your compensation by a corresponding percentage. Our investigation will set out to prove the at-fault party is 100% responsible for the accident or that your contribution was minimal.

Personal Injury Cases Have a Time Limit in South Carolina
Like most people, you have probably heard of the statute of limitations and know it dictates how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. When seeking compensation, you should also know the details of:
- The personal injury and wrongful death statute of limitations found in C. Ann. § 15-3-530. It generally allows you to file a lawsuit within three years of an accident (personal injury) or of a demise (wrongful death)
- The medical malpractice statute of limitations found in C. Ann. § 15-3-545. It generally allows you to file your lawsuit up to threeyears from the date of the medical error or from the date the error was discovered.
When we handle your personal injury case, we explain the appropriate statute and any factors that lengthen or shorten the filing deadline. We also ensure timely compliance to protect you from the costly consequences of an expired statute of limitations.
