Columbia
Personal Injury Attorney

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, it’s important to understand that you have rights. It’s also important to hire the right Personal Injury Lawyer to help you. Dealing with medical providers and fighting with big insurance companies can be a tiring battle, but you don’t have to fight on your own.

According to the National Safety Council, an American is injured every second, and one dies every three minutes due to a preventable accident. Getting injured due to someone else’s negligence is a very painful process that can have lasting effects long after the injury has physically healed.

If you are wrongfully injured in Columbia, then the first thing you need is an experienced personal injury lawyer by your side. Only skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable personal injury lawyers in Columbia know how to fight for your rights to help you get full compensation for your loss. It is because they understand all that it takes to get results.

Welcome to Marc Brown Law Firm, where we focus on getting results by providing a client-friendly experience.

Provided our extensive knowledge and experience in this field, we take care of even the smallest things for you and make sure you get a friendly experience from us. We listen to your needs and expectations from your case and then get to work.

Types of Personal Injury Claims  

Personal injury is a section of the Law of Torts which concerns an individual directly. While personal injury affects a person, the compensation you get from it can be used to cover other areas that are not directly related to your person. For instance, if your injury prevented you from working for a period of time, it would be a factor in deciding your compensation.     

Personal injury claims branch out into numerous subsections. Some of them are: 

    • Automobile Personal Injury: This area of personal injury concerns automobile accidents from things like trucks, cars, motorcycles, and bikes.  
    • Medical Malpractice: This happens when a doctor is so negligent when giving you treatment that it causes you harm.  
  • Slip and Fall Accident: This happens when you have a slip accident at business premises. You’ll be entitled to compensation if the negligence of the owner of the premises caused your accident.  
  • Animal Liability Personal Injury: This occurs when you get injured due to an attack by an animal owned by another person. This mostly happens with dogs, but other animals are generally applicable. 

There are numerous other areas of personal injury, but the above is a broad overview. 

Laws that Affect Personal Injury  

There are some general legal principles that you should take note of when it comes to personal injury claims in Columbia. They are: 

Statute of Limitation  

When it comes to civil suits generally, and personal injury in particular, most states have a period within which you have to bring your claim. If you don’t bring your claim within that time frame, your case would be thrown out. The reason for this is that in a lot of cases, after a period of time, it would be difficult to ascertain evidence in determining who is at fault. In Columbia, this period is 3 years. If you have a personal injury and you bring your claim after this period, the claim would fail. 

Negligence 

Most personal injury cases stem from negligence. This happens when the person who caused your injury acted in a nonchalant way that ended up causing your accident. One principle to note of when it comes to negligence is whether it was contributory or not. Negligence becomes contributory if you also shared some of the fault in the injury caused to you. For instance, if you had an auto accident but you were not using your seat belt, the other party can claim that you bear some of the blame for the injury. The courts normally decide on the extent of compensation based on the extent of contribution to the negligence. If the court determines that you share 15% of the fault in causing an accident, then your compensation would be reduced by 15%. If you have 50% of the blame, you get no compensation.
