Is South Carolina a No-Fault State?
South Carolina is not a no-fault state. States that follow no-fault systems require motorists to carry minimum amounts of personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. After an accident, injured individuals can file PIP claims and recover compensation for certain damages, such as medical bills, regardless of fault.
Because South Carolina follows a traditional fault-based (or “tort”) system, you must typically file a claim with the other party’s insurance provider to recover compensation. This involves proving that the other person or party was at fault for the accident. If insurance refuses to pay your rightful compensation, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against that provider. There may also be a case for filing a third party lawsuit depending on the circumstances of your accident.
Know Your Deadlines
It is important to know that South Carolina accident claims must be filed within three years of the date when the accident took place. If you miss this statute of limitations, your case will be thrown out.
Waiting to take action is one of the most common mistakes victims make. It can take time to build a successful case, so it is important to reach out to the Motorcycle Law Group at (855) 529-7433 to get your case started today.
