Time Limits on Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Greenwood, SC
You generally have three years from your accident’s date to file a lawsuit, per S.C. Ann § 15-3-530. If we don’t file your lawsuit within this deadline, the judge will dismiss your case, preventing you from pursuing the at-fault party in court.
To protect your right to legal action, we encourage you to consider your legal options. While some circumstances could toll or extend this deadline, it’s wise not to assume anything before consulting our team.
We Aim to Build a Strong, Comprehensive Case
Our Greenwood injury lawyer will:
Investigate Your Case
We must learn about the cause of your accident to determine fault and liability. In some cases, liability is obvious and only requires a few pieces of evidence. In complicated situations, we may call on witnesses, pull security camera footage, and recreate the incident with accident reconstruction specialists.
Information to support your case may include:
- The accident report
- Photos of the accident scene
- Testimony from your doctors
- Your imaging scan and blood work results
- Damage to your personal property (if applicable)
- Statements from eyewitnesses
- Your medical records
- Your written testimony
Identify the At-Fault Party
The at-fault party largely depends on the cause of your accident. For instance, if you slipped and fell at a neighbor’s house, the homeowner could be at fault. Liability is a different story; it refers to who pays for your damages.
So, if you slipped at your neighbor’s house, the homeowner could be at fault, but their homeowner’s insurance policy could be liable.
Negotiate a Settlement
We’re proud to announce that most of our cases never make it before a jury. That’s because we resolve them through insurance claims. To negotiate a fair settlement with the liable party, we will:
- Calculate your losses
- Determine the policy limits
- Use evidence to prove negligence
- Demonstrate the cause of your accident and the nature of your condition
File Your Civil Lawsuit
Although we resolve many of our cases through settlements, we’ve also had our share of successes in the courtroom. We will do everything possible to bring your lawsuit to completion. This involves presenting your case’s argument, proving your accident’s cause, and cross-examining witnesses.
How Long Does it Take to Recover Compensation?
The progression of your case depends on numerous factors, including:
- The value of your damages
- Whether you’ve reached maximum medical improvement
- The liable policy’s limits
- The availability of evidence
- The insurance company’s cooperation
We want to resolve your case as quickly as possible. The insurer may tempt you with an easy, lowball settlement offer. While accepting this initial sum can resolve your case quickly, it may not account for all of your losses. We can assess any offers and fight for what you deserve.
