What is the Statute Of Limitations For a Personal Injury Claim in South Carolina?

In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years from the injury date. You must file your lawsuit within three years of the injury date, or you will likely be blocked from seeking compensation for your injuries. It is important to note that there may be exceptions to this general rule depending on the circumstances of your case. For example, if you were injured due to medical malpractice, the statute of limitations may be shorter, and there may be additional requirements you must meet before filing a lawsuit.

If you have been injured in an accident or due to someone else’s negligence, it is essential to speak with an experienced Columbia personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to understand your legal options and ensure your rights are protected! 

Why You Need a Columbia Personal Injury Attorney

Negligence-based accidents can occur in all kinds of scenarios that leave victims and their families struggling to recover in terms of physical and emotional health and financial stability. Under South Carolina personal injury law, you may be eligible to file a claim against the at-fault party and/or their insurance provider for damages and losses. 

Most people fail to realize that insurance companies are not really on your side. While they may appear to be helpful, their goal is to pay out as little as possible in claims. Thus, they may pressure victims into accepting quick settlements that are much less than the true value of their cases. A savvy and staunch legal professional on your side, however, levels the playing field. 

Our team will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case, build your claim with supporting evidence, and negotiate for optimum compensation based on the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life. Insurers are much more willing to pay you fair compensation when they know you have a law firm on your side that can take them to trial if they do not. 

Let Us Protect Your Rights and Pursue Your Best Interests

Our attorneys also understand the frustration of dealing with insurance companies who are on the line for paying out injury claims on behalf of their policyholders. These companies can engage in various tactics designed to delay, deny, or reduce what you are truly owed in terms of rightful compensation. Their main concern is their own financial bottom line, not yours. That is why you need an aggressive attorney who knows how to hold these companies and/or at-fault parties accountable for the harm they have caused. At Truslow & Truslow, we have been doing just that for more than 50 years.
