Personal Injury Liability Laws South Carolina
Determining liability after an accidental injury is not always as straightforward as it seems. You — or eyewitnesses of your accident — may believe it is obvious that another motorist, a shopkeeper or another party caused your accidental injury through some negligent actions. However, keep in mind that South Carolina is a comparative negligence state. If a judge or jury determines that you were partially at fault, you may have trouble collecting compensation through a lawsuit against another driver.
Specifically, if you are judged to be 51 percent or more at fault, you will not be able to recover compensation from the other driver. Insurance claims adjusters are well-aware of this. An insurer will, therefore, naturally try to claim that you were more than half to blame. For example, you may have been in the right of way — but speeding. So where does fault lie in that case?
