Some of the out-of-pocket expenses you spent as a direct result of the accident you were involved in may be covered by a personal injury settlement. These settlements in South Carolina could pay for costs like hospital bills, compensation for suffering, missed wages, prescription drug costs, and perhaps even lost potential future wages. Insurance may cover your inadvertent losses, but if you want the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled, you will need legal counsel.
Anyone who has been hurt or lost property in a vehicle accident due to the negligence or carelessness of another driver is eligible to file a claim for compensation. It is the burden of the injured party to prove that the negligent party owed them a duty of care, that the negligent party violated that duty of care, that the violation led to the accident, and that the accident actually resulted in injuries. In other words, it is up to the injured party to prove that the careless party owed them a duty of care.
