  • What are Injuries From I-26 Accidents?

    You might not realize all of the different ways that your life has been changed in the immediate aftermath of an accident. Some people do not even feel symptoms of their injuries at the scene of the accident, prompting them not to seek medical treatment. However, it is always a good idea to speak directly with a medical professional to confirm that you do not have unnoticed serious injuries. 

    You may also begin to develop symptoms in the days and weeks after the accident, especially if you have suffered whiplash, internal organ damage, or brain injuries. Continue to follow up with any treatment or physical therapy if you have been diagnosed with something, as this could become important in your personal injury claim. There are many different kinds of injuries that might impact you following a crash, and the medical bills for these may exceed your health insurance coverage. It is also likely that if you have severe injuries, you will need to adapt your life and work schedule to account for these. Recognizing this, laws in South Carolina enable you to pursue compensation when you have been harmed by someone else is negligent behavior. 

    If you have suffered any of the following injuries, get help from a lawyer: 

    • Broken bones
    • Organ damage
    • Burns/scars 
    • Lacerations 
    • Whiplash
    • Brain injuries
    • Back injuries 
    • Fractures 

    All of these can come with serious treatments and pain, so you need to keep your personal injury lawyer informed as you seek treatment as well. 

  • What Kind of Damages Can I Recover?

    Recovering damages with the help of an I-26 wreck lawyer is essential for allowing you to move forward with your life and to get the medical treatment that you need. Far too many people find themselves dealing with the devastating consequences of someone else's negative actions, such as drunk driving, distracted driving, reckless driving, and more. In these circumstances, the support of a lawyer is instrumental in ensuring that you get your case filed in a timely fashion. 

    A lawyer may be able to help you work through the legal components of your claim. Working with your I-26 wreck lawyer in an initial consultation, you'll get a good idea of the types of damage compensation available. The purpose of receiving damages in an I-26 wreck lawsuit is to help make you whole for your losses and injuries. This includes economic losses, which are payments for damages you've already sustained, such as medical bills and future medical bills, as well as damages to cover intangible losses such as emotional distress or pain and suffering. 

    In some limited circumstances in South Carolina, punitive damages may also be applicable. 

    Medical bills can include payments for things such as:

    • Rehabilitation costs
    • Nursing care
    • Adaptive medical devices
    • Chiropractic care
    • Hospital stays
    • Medications
    • Physical therapy
    • Relevant surgical treatments
    • Doctor visits
    • Transportation to medical treatment

    Your medical expense compensation can include costs to treat your physical injuries caused by the accident and additional injuries resulting from the accident, such as therapy for depression or post-traumatic stress disorder. If your injuries are expected to be disabling or permanent, you may also be compensated for your future medical expenses, as well as future lost income. If your injuries cause you to miss time at work, you are entitled to compensation for that lost income and your I-26 wreck lawyer can help you recover this.

  • What About Pain and Suffering Compensation?

    One of the most complicated aspects of a South Carolina traffic accident case is compensation for pain and suffering. This encompasses all of the emotional and mental changes you've experienced due to your injuries and their consequences. You may be compensated for any reduction in your quality of life or limitations on your ability to engage in daily activities. The calculation of pain and suffering compensation in South Carolina is difficult because it is very hard to put a dollar value on it in comparison with actual economic damages, but an experienced and dedicated I-26 Wreck lawyer can help you.

  • When Can I Pursue Punitive Damages?

    In certain personal injury lawsuits, punitive damages may apply. These damages are not meant to pay you for specific monetary losses but are instead intended to level a punishment for the defendant for wrongful acts. Not every case in a South Carolina traffic accident will lead to the award of punitive damages. 

    South Carolina Code Section 15-32-510 allows plaintiffs to seek punitive damages and personal injury complaints when the harm to the victim was caused by reckless or willful conduct. It falls to the plaintiff to be able to prove misconduct, and you cannot demand a specific amount. However, your I-26 wreck lawyer can help you to calculate what may be fair for your pain and suffering or to make a compelling case for the judge or jury. 

    The jury and judge will consider numerous different factors in deciding punitive damages, such as:

    • The duration of the conduct.
    • The severity of the harm.
    • The degree of culpability of the defendant.
    • Whether the defendant profited from the conduct.
    • The defendant's ability to pay punitive damages.
    • The defendant's awareness of the risks they created.
    • Whether the defendant had civil fines assessed
    • Whether any criminal penalties were imposed on that defendant.

    South Carolina law also places a cap on punitive damages which is $500,000 or three times the total for compensatory damages received by a plaintiff. If you need assistance with obtaining compensation for personal injury lawsuits, you need to consult with an experienced and qualified lawyer today. An I-26 Wreck lawyer can significantly help you to recover compensation and help you to move forward with your life even when there are many complex factors at play.

  • Why Hire Morgan & Morgan?

    The experienced attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have a strong track record throughout South Carolina for taking our clients’ cases seriously and fighting hard on behalf of victims. 

    Our first priority when helping you to recover from an accident on this major road is to determine what expenses you've already incurred and to launch a thorough investigation to decide on the cause of the accident. It is likely that you do not remember all of the details leading up to the moment of or after the accident, and this is why we launch a thorough investigation to identify what might have caused it. This can also be extremely helpful for identifying any other liable parties since it is possible that more than one person or company could be responsible for your injuries. 

    Because we approach each case uniquely, we take our time to learn what is most important to you and what a win looks like for you. This could mean that we work as hard as possible to resolve the case outside of court so that you can put this matter behind you, or it may mean looking to maximize compensation by going to trial. We recognize that you have individual goals and have many things to think about in the wake of an accident, so we craft a legal strategy that is aligned with you personally. 

    If you require legal support after an accident on I-26, do not hesitate to contact us today for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
