About South Carolina Personal Injury Lawsuits

Some accidents are unavoidable. But when negligence and recklessness play a role in a preventable accident that causes personal injuries, the responsible party can be held liable under South Carolina personal injury or wrongful death laws.

Our personal injury attorneys frequently handle cases involving devastating conditions like broken bones, traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries, paralysis, burns, birth injuries, medical complications, back injuries and more. At Joye Law Firm, we understand that these types of injuries can cause lifelong disabilities and hardship for victims and their families.

It is important to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible following your accident. Injured victims typically have three years from the date of the injury to file a personal injury claim in South Carolina, but this time limit can be shorter if the at-fault party was a government entity. In wrongful death cases, surviving family members have similar time limits from the date of death to take legal action. Again, there are certain exceptions to those statutes of limitations. Talking with an attorney at Joye Law Firm can help you understand the laws so that you are equipped to take legal action, either immediately or once you are further along in your recovery.

Protect Your Rights

There are several steps you can take to protect your rights to compensation:
Let us speak to the insurance adjuster.
Joye Law Firm can handle insurance adjusters. Don’t sign documents without speaking to a South Carolina auto accident lawyer first. You may be signing away rights to compensation.
Contact your insurance company.
A delay reporting the accident may hurt your claim.
Visit your doctor.
Whether you feel hurt or not, see your doctor and tell him or her exactly what happened in the accident. Injuries can sometimes take time to manifest.
File receipts and documents.
Keep a journal detailing how you feel as you get better. It can be hard to remember details months later, like how hard it was to bend down to tie your shoes.
