You Can Hold Negligent Parties Liable
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. Negligence is the failure to take appropriate care when performing an action. In order to prove negligence, and thus hold another party liable, you will need to prove the following:
- The defendant had a duty to look out for your safety in a given situation.
- The defendant breached that duty.
- There was causation between the defendant’s breach and your injuries.
- You suffered actual damages.
