Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in South Carolina
In South Carolina, a personal injury claim must be commenced within three years from the date that the injury occurred. If you wait more than three years to file your claim, you can be permanently barred from recovery. Note that if your claim is being filed against a government entity, the statute of limitations is shortened and you have even less time to act.
Steps to Take Now
You can take steps right now to preserve your right to a personal injury claim. If you have not already done so, be sure to:
- File a police report related to the accident or another formal report and request a copy of the report;
- Seek medical care;
- Follow your doctor’s orders;
- Keep thorough documentation of your injuries, your treatment, and your healing progress;
- Gather any evidence related to the accident that you can, including photos of the accident scene, names of any eyewitnesses, and more; and
- Call a lawyer as soon as possible – remember, evidence doesn’t last forever, and the clock on the statute of limitations is ticking.
