South Carolina Car Accident Statistics and Recoverable Damages
According to South Carolina Traffic Collision Fact Book statistics for 2019, there were 1,661 car accidents in Cherokee County, including 476 involving injuries and 14 fatal wrecks. The resulting financial damage of car wrecks statewide was approximately $4.77 billion.
When our team represents you after a collision, we help you recover from the monetary impact on your life. We carefully assess the value of your recoverable damages such as:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost income
- Property damage or total loss
- Lasting disability or impairment
- Mental and emotional trauma
- Physical pain and suffering
Our team does more than assign a value to your damages. We also collect the evidence that supports your right to compensation, the individual value of each item, and the overall value of your case.
Track the Value of Your Injuries and Related Expenses
To ensure we accurately calculate the value of your damages and submit a complete request for compensation, we collect your:
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Pay stubs
- Tax records
We also obtain the receipts and estimates for repairing your car. In addition to ensuring your vehicle is restored to its pre-accident condition, these documents also help us establish your vehicle’s diminished value. We also use authoritative and accepted industry guides to place a value on your car if the insurance company declares it a total loss.
Comply with the Relevant Statute of Limitations
S.C. Ann § 15-3-530 sets the general filing deadline for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits after a car accident at three years. However, each type of claim has a different starting point:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is based on the date the accident occurred. We use your car accident report and witness statements to prove the relevant date and ensure compliance with the filing deadline.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is based on the date your loved one dies from the injuries they sustained in the accident. Again, our team uses your car accident report to prove the relevant date along with your loved one’s death certificate.
When you get our team involved in your case early, we will make sure to file your lawsuit on time. We also have time to investigate the accident and search for supportive witnesses and evidence.
