You may be able to file a lawsuit, but without an Orangeburg personal injury lawyer, that can be tough. Fortunately, your attorney may be able to help you through your lawsuit when you’re struggling to recover.

Orangeburg personal injury cases are primarily handled out of our Columbia office.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

If you’ve suffered a severe injury because of someone else’s carelessness, you may be eligible for a personal injury claim in Orangeburg. These claims typically mean that someone was careless with your safety and that your accident wouldn’t have happened if they had met the duty of care that they should have.

However, it’s important to talk to your lawyer about the specifics of your accident. Some injury types may have laws unique to those injuries, especially regarding who’s responsible for your injuries. That’s why you may need to reach out to a lawyer before making any decisions.

If you’ve suffered an injury in an accident like one of the following, you may be qualified for compensation that covers your losses:

  • Motor vehicle accidents involving cars, motorcycles, or commercial trucks
  • Wrongful death
  • Dog attacks
  • Defective products
  • Slip-and-fall accidents

South Carolina Laws Affecting Your Claim

When you’re injured, it’s also important to consider the South Carolina laws affecting your accident claim. While some are case-specific, you may also need to consider general injury laws that could leave you with less or no compensation for your injuries.

For example, you have a limited time to seek compensation for your claim. In South Carolina, injury victims will typically have only three years to file a claim, often even less time. If you don’t act within that time, you could lose your compensation completely. Other factors may affect your claim, so speak to your Orangeburg lawyer, since you may have even less time than you expected.

You may also need to focus on protecting your claim from accusations of fault. The defense may put the blame on you, which can reduce the compensation you receive for your injuries. If you don’t prepare a defense against their claims, you could even lose your compensation completely.
