Compensation for Your Injuries
Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident or a slip and fall or any other type of accident that wasn’t your fault, you can be compensated for those injuries by the person or entity responsible for the accident. As long as you are within three years since the date of your accident, you can file a personal injury lawsuit in the state of South Carolina.
There are several different types of damages that may be included in your compensation. “Damages” is the term used for the money that will cover your accident-related losses. The two most common forms of compensation are economic damages and non-economic damages. The main difference between the two is one is a calculable, generally objective type of compensation (economic damages), and the other is more subjective (non-economic damages).
- Economic damages cover medical costs associated with treatment you received for the injuries caused by the accident. You can be reimbursed for past medical costs or paid for any future medical costs related to your injuries. Economic damages also cover any home or car assistance modifications you may need as a result of your injuries, loss of income, loss of future income, and reimbursement for accident-related property damage.
- Non-economic damages are awarded as a means to compensate you for the impact your injuries have had on other areas of your life — primarily, your mental health and any change in the quality of your life. Recovering from injuries can be traumatic and long-lasting, and the mental anguish you have to endure as a result may lead you to acquire new conditions, such as anxiety or depression. Your life can change drastically and unexpectedly. You may be compensated for that pain and suffering. Your family can also be compensated — called a loss of consortium — for the impact the accident has on them while they support your healing.
Depending on what kind of accident you’ve been in and what caused your injuries, the amount of non-economic damages you may be awarded in South Carolina may be capped.
Another form of compensation is rare and can only be awarded by a judge or jury. Punitive damages serve to punish the liable party and deter them and others from committing the same negligent act in the future. In South Carolina, if the person who caused your accident is found to have acted willfully, wantonly, or recklessly, they may be ordered to pay punitive damages.
