What type of Compensation Can I Expect in My Case?

Our  Columbia personal injury attorneys are often ask what kind of compensation  they can expect from their  personal injury case. While every personal injury case is different, in South Carolina, you can expect compensation for the following:
  • medical bills, including future medical care for permanent injuries
  • lost wages, and
  • pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life.

Obtaining Fair Compensation in a Personal Injury Case

The law  in South Carolina recognizes that the quality of life of the spouse of an injured person also suffers, and it allows   recovery for this injury even though the spouse did not suffer physical injury himself or herself. A loss of consortium case is separate from the injured victim’s case.

An injury plaintiff may be entitled to a legal award of the costs for future medical care for permanent injuries. Typically, this must be proven with expert testimony.

Most states including South Carolina  allow additional  personal injury recovery when an injury interferes with a plaintiff’s ability to lead a normal life. With an elderly personal injury  client, this could mean the ability to play with one’s grandchildren, to walk and exercise as one did prior to an injury, to communicate meaningfully with others, or to engage in pastimes one previously enjoyed.

A patient who was injured as a result of the medical malpractice may be entitled to recover his or her lost wages, past and future, incurred as a result of the malpractice.

Mental Suffering Damages in a Personal Injury Case

Mental suffering for which one may recover damages can include the following:

  • Fear of the consequences of an  injury while awaiting help;

  • Fear experienced in the period between realizing an incident likely to cause injury was going to occur and the time of occurrence;

  • Fear experienced after an  injury about what else could have happened;

  • Anxiety about one’s physical health and future well-being;

  • Fear of the need for future surgery as a result of one’s  injuries;

  • Fear of increased vulnerability to future  injury;

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder.

In a personal injury case, an injured person may be entitled to recover the costs of treatment for injuries as a result of the negligence or intentional conduct of a third party.

Pain and Suffering in a Personal Injury Case

Pain and suffering is the term used for damages designed to compensate someone for his or her  injuries that are physical and emotional in nature. Experienced Columbia  Lawyers may be able to add to the settlement compensation a victim can receive for out of pocket damages like lost wages and medical bills.

The South Carolina Courts generally do not recognize shortened life expectancy as a separate personal  injury. The South Carolina Courts  may be consider in determining the seriousness of someone’s injury, decreased earning capacity, pain and suffering, and mental suffering from knowing one’s life will be shorter.

South Carolina Jurors are typically told to determine a plaintiff’s future damages based on standard life expectancy tables. However, due to improvements in medical science and living conditions over the years, your Columbia Lawyers might argue that your life expectancy was/is actually greater than the standard tables would indicate, thereby entitling you to greater damages and better results.

If you have followed good health practices, such as not smoking, exercising, maintaining a good weight, and eating properly, this information might help your Strom Law Firm LLC Personal Injury Lawyers in arguing that you are entitled to greater damages due to your longer life expectancy.

Ask a Columbia Personal Injury Lawyer about Punitive Damages

Depending upon the nature of the case, punitive damages may be awarded.  For example, in a case where it is shown that a nursing home engaged in malicious or reckless conduct, punitive damages may be awarded. Because injured nursing home residents are generally older, in poor health, and have a relatively short life expectancy, damage elements that are common in other personal injury cases, such as lost earning capacity, future pain and suffering, and future medical expenses, will not be as significant. Awards against nursing homes are comprised for the most part of punitive damages, and damages for mental anguish, pain and suffering experienced by the injured person, medical expenses. Also, the loss of affection and companionship by the surviving spouse or children.
