Liability, determining fault and other aspects of South Carolina injury law
For a party to legally owe you compensation for injuries following an accident, you and your lawyer must prove that negligent action or inaction resulted in your injuries — and you must file the case within three years. This involves proving the following:
- That the other party had a legal duty to make a reasonable effort not to cause you harm
- That the other party failed to meet that duty by engaging in negligent, careless or reckless behavior
- That the other party’s negligence caused an accident that left you with one or more injuries
- That you incurred measurable physical, financial and/or emotional damages as a result of your injuries
Although many accidents are the fault of a single person or entity, some involve multiple causes, factors and parties. In South Carolina, we use comparative negligence to apportion fault — this means that an injured person, even if partially at fault, can still obtain a portion of the compensation for injuries.
