What are My Rights after an Accident Causes Injury?
After sustaining an injury or losing a loved one from an accident of any kind, you have the right to pursue a claim for compensation from either the person, company or government agency which was to blame — through carelessness or intentional wrongdoing.
You have the right to be “made whole” following an accident, which means obtaining fair and just compensation for:
- Treatment expenditures for medical care required after the accident;
- Income loss from missed work, vacation or sick days you were forced to take, or a reduction in earning power resulting from injuries;
- Pain and discomfort endured from your injuries;
- Emotional distress resulting from the accident or its aftermath;
- Financial and non-financial losses resulting from a loved one’s untimely passing.
How Can I Recover Compensation for Injuries Resulting from an Accident?
You must take the right steps in the aftermath of the incident. This means collecting evidence at the accident scene, reporting the incident to the police, obtaining medical attention to document your injuries, and speaking with an attorney who can file a damage claim for you.
You can pursue your claim in court, which would mean having to prove that more likely than not the evidence you’re presenting is true, and the defendant was responsible for harming you. You can also get help from an experienced South Carolina injury attorney to negotiate a settlement outside of court so you can obtain compensation without the stress of a trial.
