South Carolina Personal Injury Attorney

While the laws that punish those who cause unintentional physical harm to others are soft when it comes to jail time and other penalties, our society does allow for compensation through the civil court system. This is often the greatest form of justice that an injured victim ever gets. Not only that, but depending on the size of the at-fault party’s insurance policy, this compensation can afford the injured party a degree of financial security that they would otherwise not be privy to if they were left to pay for their medical expenses, property damage, and other fallout from the incident. South Carolina personal injury attorney Marc Brown has vast knowledge pertaining to all personal injury claim matters, from gathering medical evidence and pouring over insurance policies, to negotiation and litigation.

The Four Key Elements in a Successful Personal Injury Claim

In order for a personal injury claim or lawsuit to be successful, the injured party—called the plaintiff—must be able to establish a specific relationship between themself and the at-fault party—called the defendant—as well as prove that the defendant’s negligence actions caused the incident in which the plaintiff was harmed. For example, the defendant was texting while driving and caused a car wreck. The plaintiff was injured in that car wreck, as a result of the defendant’s distracted/careless driving. The four key elements in a personal injury claim that apply in all types of injuries (medical malpractice, traffic collisions, premises accidents, etc.) are as follows:

  1. The plaintiff was owed a duty of care by the defendant
  2. The defendant breached said duty of care
  3. The plaintiff was injured (suffered damages)
  4. The plaintiff’s damages were a result of the breach
