Vannoy Law Office Personal Injury
How can money make a person “whole” again after an injury or death? It cannot. No amount of money or property can ever put a person back to where they were prior to being the victim of an accident. Over the past two hundred and thirty odd years of American civil jurisprudence and even before that, the process has changed shape and evolved into our current civil justice system.
Negligence Cases and Personal Injury Cases
Most personal injury cases I deal with are “negligence cases”. Generally, “negligence” is a breach of the duty of care that results in damages. There are several facts that make up a negligence case in South Carolina. These are:
2. Breach of Duty
3. Proximate Cause
Perhaps the most common negligence case is a car accident. All drivers owe other drivers a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe and ordinary manner in conformance with State law. This duty is breached when someone neglects to operate safely and proximately causes damage to another driver’s car and/or person. I have been involved in a variety of personal injury cases. In most cases, not only are my clients hurt but also deal with no means of transportation because of damages to their vehicle. Most are dealing with the shock of the accident along with the pain of injuries and damages to their vehicle. If you have become a victim of an accident or other incident, you may have legal remedies. Please contact my office for a confidential consultation and case evaluation.
South Carolina has a “strict liability” dog bite law. Generally, so long as you are in a place you have a right to be, if you are bitten by a dog without provocation, the owner is “strictly liable” for your damages. My office handles these types of cases. If you have been bitten by a dog and have suffered damages, please contact me today.
