How We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable
In South Carolina, you can’t be compensated by claiming someone hurt you; it must be proven. If your case is successful, the liable party can be held accountable according to South Carolina personal injury laws. You need to prove the following to obtain compensation:
- The defendant had a duty of care. For example, a driver in South Carolina has a duty of care to obey the law and drive safely to avoid harming others.
- The defendant breached their duty of care. Using the above example, a driver could breach their duty by running a red light.
- The breach caused your injuries. Running the red light and hitting your vehicle could cause your broken arm and leg.
- You suffered damages. The accident and injury caused damages that can be monetarily compensated for.
