Personal injuries can be severe, life-changing, and even deadly. Trying to repair one’s life after a personal injury may seem like an insurmountable challenge. The pain, treatment, and attempt to recover financially, physically, or mentally can seem everlasting. The last thing you or a family member needs is pressure to settle your case only days after it occurred.

Auto accidents are one of the personal injury focus areas of The Law Office of Deondra Sexton. South Carolina follows the modified comparative negligence rule. Under this rule, fault is attributed to a party based on their negligence in causing the event. Even if a plaintiff is partially negligent, the plaintiff can still recover as long as their negligence is not greater than that of the defendant. Simply stated, a plaintiff found to be greater than 50% negligent, the plaintiff is barred from recovering in South Carolina.

Personal Injury cases can be hard to value. A case’s value depends on many factors, including but not limited to the personal injury involved, the assessment of fault, lost wages, medical expenses, permanent injuries, effects on earning capacity, future medical care, and other damages and financial losses.

In South Carolina, there are time limits for which a person has to bring a personal injury action. Therefore, it is important to seek a lawyer’s assistance to protect your rights to recovery.
