South Carolina law allows you to hold at-fault motorists responsible if you were injured in a car accident. You can learn more about the legal options for seeking compensation in your case by contacting a Myrtle Beach car accident lawyer from Anastopoulo Law Firm today.
You may be able to file a car insurance claim or a Horry County civil lawsuit against the motorist who caused your accident. If so, you could recover damages that include medical care costs, lost wages, and more.
Types of Recoverable Damages Available for SC Traffic Accident Victims
If we can show another driver caused the accident, we may be able to file a claim based on their car insurance liability coverage. This allows us to demand fair compensation from the insurer using proof of your expenses and losses.
You should not have to pay for accident-related expenses or losses for a car wreck you did not cause. If the insurer refuses a just payout, we may be able to sue the driver on your behalf.
Recoverable damages in these cases may include:
- Costs related to your medical treatment and care
- Lost wages and other income
- Future care costs
- Diminished ability to earn for lasting injuries
- Vehicle repair
- Related expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
We Also Pursue Damages for Fatal Car Accidents
If your loved one could have pursued an insurance payout but died from their accident injuries, your family could have a wrongful death claim under South Carolina law. You can learn more during a free consultation with a Myrtle Beach personal injury lawyer from our firm.
A wrongful death action holds the at-fault party responsible for the damages the victim’s surviving family members suffered. These damages can include:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of services
- Intangible losses

Establishing Liability and Building a Personal Injury Case
When we represent an accident victim, we use our financial and legal resources and experience to build a case that:
- Proves how the auto accident occurred
- Shows the other driver caused the collision
- Ties the client’s personal injuries to the crash
- Puts a fair value on their case
Central to this is proving that negligence occurred and caused the accident. There are four factors required to document negligence in a car crash:
- The driver had to do or not do something according to traffic laws.
- The driver violated a specific traffic law or laws.
- This violation caused an automobile accident.
- The client suffered personal injuries and negative financial impacts.
Our Team Collects Evidence to Support Your Car Accident Claim
At Anastopoulo Law Firm, we know the evidence necessary to prove negligence. This allows us to show exactly what happened and who caused the collision. Potential evidence includes:
- The traffic accident report from law enforcement
- Witness accounts of the crash
- Accident reconstruction
- Relevant medical records
- Expert statements
- Documentation of losses

We handle developing the case and building a claim while you heal from your injuries. Our team is always available to answer questions or discuss case progress.

There are Deadlines to Take Legal Action in South Carolina Car Accident Cases
You should consider taking action as soon as you are able. The sooner we get to work investigating the car crash, the more evidence that may be available. Unfortunately, some types of evidence are gone within a few hours of the accident, and others have a short lifespan.
For example, if there is a video of your crash from a nearby traffic or surveillance camera, it could be available for a week or two before there is no more space and the file gets rewritten. We need to identify and preserve such evidence before this happens.
In general, S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530 puts a three-year deadline on personal injury and wrongful death cases in South Carolina. However, exceptions exist that could alter this time limit. We will discuss the applicable timeline for your car accident case during your initial consultation.
