Being hurt in an accident and losing personal property does not have to hold you back from recovering your losses and getting your life back on track. While you focus on your physical recovery, our team of personal injury lawyers can focus on getting you compensated for your injuries and other monetary losses.
What Can I Be Compensated For?
The state of South Carolina employs a cap, or limit, on recoverable damages in personal injury cases. Compensation for punitive damages is limited to three times the actual amount of damages OR $500,000. Compensation can cover:
- Bodily Injuries
- Personal Property Damage - not all types of personal property are covered, which is why you’ll want to discuss your options with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
- Pain and Suffering
- Lost Wages - for missed shifts due to your time in recovery
- Medical Expenses
The compensation varies from case to case, and you should discuss your goals immediately with your attorney so a plan can be crafted with your needs and wants in mind.
