Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in South Carolina?

A personal injury arises when a person causes harm to another person due to negligence recklessness or intentional acts. A personal injury may occur from an automobile collision, medical malpractice, or a slip and fall. A victim of a personal injury may suffer extensive injuries and may need to endure a long recovery process. These injuries and damages can cause an unexpected financial strain as well as an emotional toll on a person’s life.

To seek compensation for their injuries and resulting damages, the injured victim may file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. Under South Carolina law the injured party has three years from the date of the personal injury incident to file a lawsuit for damages. However, if the victim does not file their lawsuit before the three-year deadlines, she is barred from ever filing a lawsuit for that personal injury incident.
