Get Compensation for All Aspects of Your Injuries

Physical injuries are easy enough to prove in a personal injury claim with visual proof and medical records, but what about emotional and psychological trauma as a result of an accident?

You are able to get compensation for these types of injuries. Known as "pain and suffering", symptoms that you are entitled to get compensation for include:

  • Emotional trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Feelings of shame or humiliation
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Persistent pain
  • Scarring

At Bluestein Johnson & Burke, LLC, our Charleston County personal injury lawyers will build a strong case to help you fight for fair compensation that covers all aspects of your injury.

How Does Liability Affect My Injury Claim?

Liability determines who is legally responsible for the injuries that you acquired after an accident. No matter how you injured, the first step in any injury claim is proving that someone else was responsible for your injuries.

When liability is clearly proved, then it will be easier to deal with the insurance company and get a fair settlement. There are four elements of negligence that you need to win your case:

  • You were owed duty of care
  • The duty of care was breached
  • That breach of duty caused your injuries
  • You suffered verifiable damages

These elements apply differently to every injury case, but must be present for all types of injury claims. For example, if you were to apply these elements to a car accident case, the other driver owed you the duty of care by operating their own vehicle carefully. They breached that duty when they ran the red light and hit your car. You hurt your back as a result of that accident, which can be clearly proven through hospital and doctor records.

What is the Average SC Personal Injury Settlement?

When it comes to estimating how large your settlement may be, it's impossible to give an answer that will be true for every individual. Typical personal injury payout amounts differ depending on the extent of your injuries, the likelihood of you making a full recovery, and oftentimes the defendent's insurance policy limits.

Personal Injury Case Statistics

While it's true that some personal injury cases go to trial, many of them are settled out of court with the help of a personal injury lawyer. One study showed that 67% of personal injury cases received a settlement, rather than going to trial.

There is one thing that is important to remember when considering filing a personal injury claim: Claimants who have a professional injury lawyer representing them often receive more favorable settlements.
