What Types of Compensation are Available After a Charleston Personal Injury Accident?
South Carolina law allows people who have been injured in personal injury accidents caused by others’ negligence to seek compensation for medical bills and other losses related to your injury. This is done by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party and their insurance provider. You may claim compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Permanent disability
- Lost wages
- Loss of future wages
- Pain and suffering and emotional distress.
While no amount of compensation can change what happened to you, just compensation can ensure that you and your family are not financially burdened by medical debt and other expenses related to an accident that was not your fault.
