Under South Carolina law, victims of a car crash are supposed to be fully compensated for their losses by the person or entity responsible for causing the crash. Although it is impossible for any attorney to guarantee a specific dollar amount, a car accident lawyer can help you gain a better understanding of what you could reasonably expect to recover.

Each case is evaluated on an individual basis, and it is impossible to make a generalization about how much money someone could recover after a car accident.
