Accidents happen all the time, but fortunately, most accidents don’t often lead to serious injuries, and typically they’re caused by a genuine mistake. Unfortunately, you’ve experienced suffering because someone was careless, and now you need compensation to recover. To add insult to injury, perhaps you’re also finding that the at-fault party isn’t so willing to work with you.

When you’re facing major injuries in Anderson and need help, we will fight for you. Your personal injury lawyer serving Anderson will review your claim and defend you when the defense doesn’t want to pay. You deserve full compensation, and we’ll fight to try to make sure you get it.

Anderson cases are primarily handled out of our Greenville office.

Compensation for Injury Claims

After an accident or injury, it can take time and funds to fully recover. When the defendant tries to withhold compensation for your damages, then they’re leaving you to deal with the consequences of their actions. Instead of letting this happen, you need to make sure you’re getting the full amount of your economic and non-economic damages.

Your economic damages will be the easiest to calculate. This type of damage covers all financial losses you’ve suffered, from property damages like having your car totaled after an auto accident to the costs of hiring someone to clean your house because you’re no longer able to.

Non-economic damages are more complex and may require a lawyer to properly calculate. These intangible damages cover the mental and emotional toll of an accident. Fortunately, your lawyer will have the resources you need to calculate all your damages.

When you’ve been seriously injured, seek out the damages you need, which may include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional trauma
  • Household services

South Carolina Law May Affect Your Claim

Unfortunately, getting your compensation isn’t as simple as knowing what it’s worth. You may need to fight back against accusations of fault, which can hurt your claim. If you’re not careful, you could be left without compensation at all.

For example, if you don’t act within the legal time limit in South Carolina, your recovery may be completely barred, and your claim will be dismissed. You’ll only have three years to file your claim, so don’t wait and risk being unable to take your personal injury claim to court.

You’ll also need to make sure you’re not accused of fault. If you’re found partially at fault for your accident, you’ll lose compensation for your claim. For example, if you’re found 15 percent at fault, you’ll only recover 85 percent of your compensation. If that number is over 50 percent, your Anderson personal injury claim will be dismissed completely.
