Do My Car Accident Injuries Qualify for a Lawsuit?

Car accident injuries come in a wide range. Some of the most common injuries we work with include include:

Soft tissue injuries generally refer to injuries that don’t involve your bones. The most common we see from these is whiplash, but internal injuries to your organs count, as do torn muscles and the like.

Traumatic brain injuries, or TBI, can result in lifelong impairment, including causing depression, mood swings, difficulty with reasoning, and even personality changes that make it hard to have relationships.

Damage to your spine can harm your brain’s ability to talk to your body. It can mean that you have difficulty thinking or moving, and you may end up living in chronic pain.

When you suffer damage to your arms and legs, you might lose your strength or range of motion. In some extreme cases, you might even lose a limb entirely.

Paralysis can result from spinal damage, brain damage, or damage to your limbs. It can also be permanent or temporary, partial or total. In any case, it can turn your whole life upside down.

Does My Car Accident Qualify for a Lawsuit?

Car accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. The causes we see most often can include, but are not limited to:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Distracted drivers.
  • Eating or drinking while driving.
  • Driving while tired.
  • Carelessness.
  • Road conditions.

If you’ve been in an accident caused by any of these reasons — or any other reason, call our Greenville, SC, car accident lawyers to learn about your legal options.

How Do I Prove Negligence?

Negligence is an important concept at the heart of your car accident case.
Proving negligence means you have to prove it was someone else’s reckless actions that caused your injury. In order to fight for compensation, you need to demonstrate three things:

  1. The other driver was acting so irresponsibly that no reasonable person would act the same way in similar circumstances. This is called the “reasonable person standard.”
  2. The irresponsible behavior of the other driver led to the accident.
  3. You got hurt as a direct result of the accident.

Attempting to prove this clearly can be complex and tricky. That’s why it’s so important to have a car accident attorney in your corner.

 

Car Accident FAQs

The statute of limitations, put simply, is the window of time you have to file your case. The South Carolina legal code sets this limit at two to three years from the date of your accident depending on the circumstances or, in the case of wrongful death, three years from the date of the decedent’s passing.

Legally, you’re entitled to represent yourself if you want. Having a car wreck lawyer like those at Harris & Graves, P.A. in your corner can give you a better shot at receiving compensation for your injury.
