First Steps for a Strong Case

After an injury, your first priority should be focusing on recovery. In fact, that is the primary objective of a personal injury suit: securing the resources you need to recover from those who have wronged you. The following actions could speed your healing process and support the arguments in your case:

Filing and requesting copies of:

  • official accident and police reports
  • Seeking immediate medical attention for those injured
  • Keeping records of all medical treatments and follow caregiver directions precisely
  • Recording or enlisting someone to record the details of the incident, including photos, contact information, witness accounts, your own reactions and so on
  • Avoiding stressful distractions, such as social media
  • Contacting an attorney to advise on initial strategies and assist with investigations

Quick Action for the Best Possible Outcome

There is an expiration date on these types of cases, outlined in the South Carolina statute of limitations for personal injury. In general, the limit is three years from the time the injury occurred — or the time you should have reasonably noticed the injury. Some factors could shorten this deadline.

In practice, the time limit for successful cases is often considerably shorter than three years. Evidence degrades, memories fade and arguments become harder to make as time passes. Brief to medium delays could make it difficult to convince the court to award maximum compensation, even if such delays do not officially bar you from recovery. In short: Your case will probably be stronger the sooner you start.
