Do I Have a Valid Personal Injury Case?
In order to have a valid personal injury case in South Carolina, you or a loved one must have been injured due to the negligence of another person, and four elements must be established.
Here are the four primary elements of a personal injury case:
Duty of Care
A person is held to a legally recognized duty of care. Basically, this means that a person, through either their actions or inaction, must prevent reasonable harm to another. If they have a heightened responsibility or special relationship with that person, the duty of care can be great. A few examples of those with a duty of care over another include employers to their employees, business owners to their customers, and homeowners to their guests.
Proving negligence is the cornerstone of all successful personal injury lawsuits. It is also a very difficult concept to grasp. A defendant is negligent or breaches the duty of care by failing to meet the standard of care that someone of ordinary skill and good judgement would have exercised under the same circumstances. Negligence is that failure aspect.
Causation means that someone else must have been the sole cause of your injuries. There are two different types of causation: Cause-in-fact and proximate cause.
You must prove that you have suffered damages as a result of the accident. Damages include things like medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If these four elements can be established in a case, then you likely have a valid personal injury claim in South Carolina. The courts may award damages to compensate you for your injuries or loss. Some jurisdictions may decide to punish the defendant by awarding punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages.
