Columbia, South Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers
When you use the term “personal injury,” you’re probably referring to an individual who has been hurt somehow. But in the legal world, the definition of “personal injury” is much more specific. Used in the legal sense, it describes an injury caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person or a business. If you or a loved one has been the victim of this type of personal injury, Louthian Law is here to help.
The first thing our experienced Columbia personal injury attorneys will offer you is a listening ear. Through personal interviews and clear communication we will sort out the facts of your situation to determine how best to obtain compensation for your undeserved suffering. We listen hard and work harder . . . for you.
The threshold question is, “Whose fault was it that you were injured?” To pursue a personal injury claim, the other party must be found to be at fault in an action that resulted in your injury. Maybe this was a vehicle accident or a boating accident. Injuries resulting from a dog bite, a slip and fall or an unsafe product or medicine may also allow you to file a claim for financial compensation.
A serious South Carolina personal injury accident can result in life-altering injuries that can leave you and your family overwhelmed. Unfortunately, a recovery from a serious accident can be a long, slow process. It can also be expensive. At the Louthian Law Firm, we will use our 80 years of experience to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Injuries from Car Crashes
If you have been involved in a car accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may have been left with lingering pain and disability, not to mention medical bills. You may have missed time from work or still find yourself unable to earn a living and support your family. And no one can doubt the emotional toll a serious accident can take on its victims. All of these are damages for which you may receive compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
Fault in South Carolina Personal Injury Cases
What if you were partially at fault for the accident? Under South Carolina’s comparative negligence law, you would still be entitled to seek recovery, but the amount would be reduced according to your share of the liability. In other words, if you shared 30 percent of the blame, the amount of damages you could recover would be reduced by 30 percent. However, if you are more than 50 percent liable for your own injuries, you will not be able to recover any damages.
A slip, trip or fall sounds like it would be much less serious than a car crash. However, many such accidents cause significant and expensive injuries like broken bones and brain injuries. Thousands of senior citizens die each year as a result of a slip-and-fall accident. The personal injury attorneys of Louthian Law can help you prove the negligence of a property owner, store keeper or employee so that you may receive adequate compensation in a favorable settlement or trial.
Keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations – or a time limit – for filing personal injury claims. If you have been injured in an accident or have otherwise incurred a personal injury, don’t delay.
