Compensation You Can Recover After the Wreck
You are entitled to hold the at-fault driver financially accountable for the financial consequences you experience because of his negligence. To ensure your right to seek damages, we prove the at-fault driver’s negligence.
The four legal components of negligence we prove include:
The investigation we conduct will uncover evidence that establishes these elements for you. Once established, we help you prove the financial value of your recoverable damages.
You can recover two types of damages after a car accident in Spartanburg County. The first type—economic damages—are the ones that come with bills, receipts, and estimates that establish their value.
- Current and future medical bills
- Current and future lost wages
- Property damage or destruction
We do not burden you with evidence collection. Instead, our team handles it for you and ensures the evidence we compile is thorough and organized. It will include medical records and bills, income statements, and car repair estimates or replacement values.
Non-economic damages are the second type of damages you can collect after your wreck. Our car accident attorney will explain how we use your written prognosis and other evidence to prove their value.
Recoverable non-economic damages include:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
These damages are more difficult to assign a value to on your own. With our guidance and support, you can ensure they are accurately documented and valued.

Ensure Compliance With South Carolina’s Statute of Limitations
S.C. Ann § 15-3-530 generally gives you up to three years from the date of the wreck to file your personal injury lawsuit. It also gives you up to three years from the date of your loved one’s demise to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
We use your car accident report, medical records, and a loved one’s death certificate to establish the correct filing date. We also explain any factors that may alter the state’s filing deadline.
Complying with the statute of limitations is as important to building your case as evidence collection and other methods of proving fault. If you wait too long to file your potential lawsuit:
- You will not be allowed to file your personal injury lawsuit at all
- It will be dismissed immediately without the opportunity to be heard
- You will have no remaining legal avenues to compel compensation
Our car accident lawyer at Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC serving injured clients in Spartanburg County will ensure your case is filed on time and preserve your right to seek compensation in court, if necessary.
