Damages in a South Carolina Auto Accident Case

A car accident settlement can encompass various types of damages, each aimed at compensating the victim for different aspects of their loss and suffering. 

Damages are broadly categorized as such: 

Economic Damages

These are quantifiable financial losses resulting from the accident. They include medical expenses, covering both immediate treatment and ongoing rehabilitation costs. Lost wages are also claimed if the victim’s injuries prevent them from working, either temporarily or permanently. Compensation for property damage, such as repairs to or replacement of a vehicle, also falls under this category.

Non-Economic Damages

Pain and suffering damages cover the physical discomfort and emotional distress experienced due to the accident. Loss of enjoyment of life can be involved when injuries prevent the victim from engaging in hobbies or activities they once enjoyed. Furthermore, in severe cases, victims may seek compensation for loss of consortium, addressing the impact of their injuries on relationships with their spouse or family members.

In certain circumstances, punitive damages may also be awarded, not as compensation for the victim’s losses but as a punishment for particularly reckless or negligent behavior by the defendant.
