Car wreck injuries and fatalities have increased in South Carolina in recent years, especially between 2020 and 2021, according to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety and Office of Highway Safety and Justice Programs.

Statute of Limitations for Car Wreck Cases in Summerville

When a car wreck happens, how much time do you have under South Carolina law to file a claim for compensation? Most insurance companies do not have a specific timeline for filing an auto insurance claim, but it is important to do so as soon as possible so that valuable evidence in your case is not lost. There is, however, a firm timeline for filing a car wreck lawsuit. If you plan to file a civil lawsuit against the at-fault driver or another party who may be liable for your injuries, you will need to do so within three years from the date of the crash. Although three years might seem like a long time, it can pass quickly. Further, the longer you wait to file, the more complicated it may be to gather evidence for your case.
