Frequently Asked Questions
How is negligence determined in South Carolina?
Generally, there are three prongs for proving negligence. First, the evidence needs to show that the person who caused the injury owed the victim a duty of care. Second, it must be proven that the person who caused the injury failed to carry out that duty; third, the proof will demonstrate that the victim suffered damages because of the failure to carry out that duty. Proving negligence is the foundation of a successful personal injury claim. It is difficult without the assistance of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer. Call the Theos Law firm for help.
