Greenwood, SC -- February 3, 2016 (FPRC) -- AYERS, SMITHDEAL and BETTIS, P.C. announces the launch of a new educational website, one designed to inform them about personal injury, car accident and workers' compensation cases. The site contains information on Auto Accidents, Personal Injury law, workers' compensation, DUI, medical negligence and nursing home neglect cases. Individuals find this site to be of great assistance when they are dealing with a variety of legal matters.
"Winter weather often leads to a variety of accidents. Individuals who find they are harmed as a result of negligence on the part of another want answers to their questions, and these answers need to be obtained in a timely manner. With the help of this educational website, consumers find they have the information they need right at their fingertips," Wm. Chad Bettis, spokesperson at Ayers, Smithdeal and Bettis, P.C., declares.
One thing many individuals wish to know is the time frame they have for filing a lawsuit in a situation like this, as they want to ensure they do so in a timely manner. Those injured in the state of South Carolina generally have three years from the date he or she was injured to file their lawsuit in the South Carolina civil courts; however, in some cases they only have three years to do so. Individuals who miss this time frame most likely will find they have no legal recourse.
In addition, Bettis continues, individuals must be aware of the shared fault laws in the state. When a person if found partially at fault for their accident and injuries, the amount of compensation they obtain will be decreased by the amount that equals their percentage of fault. When the injured party is found to be responsible for more than 50 percent of the legal blame, they are no longer able to collect anything from any parties that may also be at fault.
Furthermore, when an individual is injured, he or she needs to be aware of any limits placed on the amount of compensation they may receive. Certain states restrict the types of damages an injured party may be compensated for, and this depends in part on the type of case being tried. For example, in the majority of medical malpractice cases in South Carolina, individuals cannot obtain more than $350,000 per defendant for their non-economic damages, which includes things like pain and suffering. In addition, generally a claimant cannot obtain non-economic damages in excess of $1.05 million against up to three health care providers related to the same claim for injuries from medical negligence. Other caps or limitations may be applicable to a medical negligence case as well.
"As this law only applies to medical malpractice, individuals need to seek legal representation to learn their rights and responsibilities as they pertain to their case. Although the new website will be of great assistance in answering many questions, don't hesitate to call the firm for a consultation. Anyone injured through the actions of another deserves compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering and more, and the right attorney will work to ensure this is exactly what they get," Bettis states.
