Our Personal Injury Attorneys Explain

In South Carolina, negligence is defined as "the absence of due care or ordinary care. It is the failure to exercise due care as a person of ordinary reason and prudence would exercise in the same circumstances." We understand how frustrating it can be to receive a personal injury as a result of another person's negligence.  Your life as you know it can be turned upside down, and it is not fair for you to burden the physical and financial strains without compensation which is just.

Recklessness means "the conscious failure to exercise and observe reasonable or due care. Recklessness implies the doing of a negligent act knowingly."

Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers will use its years of experience in applying these definitions to your case in order for you to receive fair compensation.

In order to recover for personal injuries sustained due to someone else's conduct, you usually have to prove:

  • At least negligence on the other person's behalf; damages sustained by you; and that the damages were caused by the other person's negligence.
