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.
