Determining Fault After a Car Accident
Once you consult with our team, we can collect evidence to identify who is responsible for the accident. We seek clear and compelling evidence that another driver, person, or entity is responsible for the collision. For example, the manufacturer could be liable for a defective design or vehicle parts.
Examples of evidence we look for in car accident cases include:
- Footage of the collision and vehicle damage
- Footage of the accident scene
- Witness statements
- The car accident report from law enforcement
Evidence like this can help us understand what caused the collision, who was present, and who to seek compensation from to cover your damages.

Recovering Damages After a Car Accident
Our car accident lawyers could negotiate a settlement from the liable party’s insurance company. Of course, you have the right to accept or reject any settlement offered. If you accept, you will sign an agreement, the defendant arranges for payment(s), and the matter is closed.
However, we may advise you to go to trial if a settlement seems unlikely. Note that you must file a lawsuit within three years of the accident in order to recover damages in court, as S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530 dictates.
Whichever path you decide to take, our team will advocate for the financial recovery your case warrants.
Types of Damages Available After Car Accidents
When our firm files a personal injury case, we may seek several types of damages for you, including:
- Medical expenses: These costs could begin at the accident scene if you receive emergency treatment and last until you recover. Your treatment might include hospital visits, surgeries, medications, medical equipment, transportation, mental health counseling, and more.
- Lost income: If you have to miss work as you heal, you could recover the income you should have earned during that time. We may also calculate how much money you could have made in the future if your injuries are long-term or permanent—this refers to your lost earning potential.
- Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering refers to the discomfort your injuries cause you after the accident, affecting your quality of life. If you are suffering long after the accident, we want to help you recover compensation for this pain.
- Emotional anguish: Emotional anguish refers to the psychological symptoms or mental health conditions you develop because of the accident.
Our team will identify each damage you suffered and calculate its value to determine how much your case is worth.
Wrongful Death Claims After a Car Accident
South Carolina law allows families to seek wrongful death damages when a loved one is killed in a car accident. However, only the executor or administrator of the estate can file the lawsuit. Surviving family members that could receive compensation include:
- Dependent parents
- Dependent siblings
- Any other beneficiaries of the deceased’s estate
In a wrongful death case, you may seek several types of damages that go beyond personal injury damages, such as:
- Burial expenses
- Administrative costs
- Loss of moral support
Note that wrongful death lawsuits are subject to a similar deadline as personal injury lawsuits in South Carolina. The executor only has three years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file.
