When it comes to Charleston personal injury attorney practices, Auger & Auger has over 50 years of combined litigation experience protecting the rights of injured victims. The state of South Carolina allows you to file a civil lawsuit against another person, company, or government agency when their acts or omissions have caused you harm. Whether your case is resolved by negotiating a settlement or in a courthouse — having a highly experienced legal advocate at your side can make the difference between disappointing and comfortable compensation.
The laws of Charleston dictate that citizens, business owners, and even government institutions owe each other certain considerations. For instance, all vehicles driving on public roads must follow the state’s safety laws and make sure they use diligence when it comes to others they may pass along the way. In South Carolina, the owner of a dog is responsible at ‘first bite’ unless the victim was purposefully provoking the animal instincts of the pet.
Some of the most common Charleston personal injuries have been traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord impairments, and whiplashes. The compensation you are awarded is dependent upon the severity of your injuries. Auger & Auger’s Charleston personal injury attorneys will pursue a claim with the intention of ‘making you whole.’ You should receive monies to pay for medical bills, lost income or reduction of earning potential, damages for pain and suffering, and from emotional distress.

When your personal injury case involves the death of a victim, then wrongful death compensation may be paid to surviving members of the family. If you have lost a spouse, damages can also include compensation for the ‘loss of companionship.’
Personal injury cases are usually satisfactorily negotiated by a settlement between the defendant, their insurers and the legal representatives for the opposing parties. Sometimes mediation or arbitration is employed as the next alternative to taking the case to court; in fact, compulsory arbitration is sometimes applied for certain civil disputes.
