How Much Money Does the Person Who Caused the Accident Have to Pay?

The law in South Carolina mandates the wrongdoer to pay enough money to cover all the harms and losses of the injured person. Think of it this of it this way. Before the accident, the injured person didn’t have:

  • medical bills
  • anxiety
  • worry
  • pain
  • lost wages, etc

When a driver breaks a safety rule and collides with another vehicle, the driver must pay for all the damage to the other car. Additionally, the driver must also pay for the injured person’s medical bills and enough money to make up for all the injured person’s harms and losses.


There is no calculator that will help you. Each case is completely different.
