In the state of South Carolina, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is
usually three years. This means that from the date of your accident or injury, you have a period

any chance to demand compensation from them. Some cases have shorter statutes of
limitations, though, so it is recommended that you talk to an attorney as soon as possible after

client owes no attorney fees, making it a smaller financial risk for people with limited resources
to pay for legal representation.

necessitating going to trial. Therefore, while a law firm can work diligently to negotiate a fair
and reasonable settlement on your behalf, it's important to understand that no law firm can
promise that a case will settle, as the outcome is influenced by many variables beyond their
