  • What Are Economic Damages in South Carolina?

When you’re hurt in an accident, you need to know what your claim is worth. That means doing more than going along with what an insurance company says your claim is worth—you need to look closer at the damages you’ve suffered. 

If you’re not sure what economic damages you’ve suffered, a South Carolina injury attorney from HawkLaw, PA can help. We understand that the numbers can get complicated, so we offer the support injury victims need to calculate their economic damages. 

Financial Losses after an Accident

When you’re injured in an accident, the expenses can get out of hand fast. You’re hurt, and that usually means hospital bills. It could also mean property damage costs, household services if you’re unable to take care of your home, and lost wages if you can’t work. 

In contrast, your non-economic damages cover the intangible losses you’ve suffered that may not have a specific price tag. Keep in mind, though, that both types of damages should be included to help you fairly recover from your injuries. 

Other Damages You Could Be Due

When you’re injured, the costs could add up faster than you think. The good news is that if someone else caused your accident, you’re eligible for compensation for all your losses, not just the initial injuries from the accident. 

For example, let’s say you’re scheduled for a future surgery, but you’re not getting the surgery for another year. When it happens, though, you’ll need compensation for your medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages, and other financial losses. Your lawsuit should cover those losses. 

During a lawsuit, it’s hard to anticipate every loss you may suffer from. Fortunately, your lawyer can help you seek your fair compensation and estimate your future losses.

Finding the fair value of your lawsuit is tough. Knowing what economic damages in South Carolina you’re eligible for is already difficult, but you’re not just dealing with those. You also need to know the value of your non-economic, intangible damages. 

Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone. Start with a lawyer from HawkLaw, PA, and we can help you go after the maximum compensation possible for your lawsuit. We offer free consultations,* too, so you know what to expect from your attorney before you begin.
