How Much is My Columbia Personal Injury Case Worth?
Obtaining Compensation in a Personal Injury Case
Our team of Columbia accident injury lawyers are often asked how much a personal injury case is worth. This is a difficult question to answer because no two cases are ever quite the same. The amount of compensation you can receive depends largely on the underlying nature of the incident, the severity of your injuries, the long-term damages you face, and the insurance policy limits of the “at fault” parties. There are other factors that can affect the value of your case, including how much work you miss and pain and suffering.
At Strom Law Firm, LLC, we know that you need answers. We offer free consultations to get to know you and your case better. Through this consultation we can better assess the details of your case and how that might affect your overall financial recovery.
While every personal injury case is different, in South Carolina, you can receive compensation for:
- Medical bills, including future medical care for permanent injuries
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life
The law in South Carolina also recognizes that the quality of life of the spouse of an injured person also suffers, and it allows personal injury 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.
A personal injury plaintiff may be entitled to a legal award of the costs for future medical care for permanent injuries.
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 the pastimes one previously enjoyed.
Mental Suffering Damages in a Personal Injury Case
Mental suffering can include:
- Fear of the consequences of a personal injury while awaiting help;
- Fear experienced in the period between realizing an incident likely to cause personal injury was going to occur and the time of occurrence;
- Fear experienced after a personal 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 personal injuries;
- Fear of increased vulnerability to future personal injury;
- Post-traumatic stress disorder.
In a personal injury case, an injured person may be entitled to recover the costs associated with this mental suffering.
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 personal injuries that are physical and emotional in nature.
Ask Our Personal Injury Lawyers about Punitive Damages
Depending upon the nature of the case, you might receive punitive damages—for example, in a case where you can show that an at-fault party engaged in malicious or reckless conduct.
