Spartanburg Personal Injury Lawyers
Representing Injury Victims in Spartanburg, Greenville, Cherokee, Union, & the Surrounding Counties
Personal injuries are injuries caused to individuals through the negligence or wrongdoing of others, whether persons, businesses, governmental agencies, or other entities. These injuries can be physical as well as psychological and are frequently long-lasting or even permanent. These are injuries that result in the need for medical care, including emergency room treatment, hospitalization, rehabilitative therapies, and, in the most severe cases, personal assistance, lifetime medical attention, and home or vehicle renovations to accommodate a permanent disability.
Injured individuals may bring a lawsuit to recover compensation for their damages and losses. This allows you to hold the responsible party or parties financially liable. This commonly involves going up against the other party’s insurer. These companies are known for their tactics designed to pay injury victims as little as they can get away with. Vulnerable injury victims are commonly no match for well-funded corporate interests defending their policyholders. That is why it is in your best interests to work with KD Trial Lawyers. We know how to fight back in aggressive negotiations for fair and just settlements or through conducting civil trials in court.

Damages in Personal Injury Cases
The damages you may recover in a personal injury case are typically categorized as economic and non-economic. Economic damages are those that are spelled out in bills, invoices, and receipts, while non-economic damages are those without such tangible evidence. No limit exists on economic damages that may be recovered. For non-economic damages, only medical malpractice cases cap the amount that can be recovered.
Economic damages can include:
- Medical expenses, both past and predicted future, including hospitalization, doctor visits, medical equipment, and rehabilitative therapies
- Lost wages or earnings due to being put out of work during your physical recovery
- Out-of-pocket expenses, such as transportation costs traveling to and from medical appointments
- Home services, such as the cost of home or vehicle renovations to accommodate your disability, caregiver services, and other needed services
- Property damage, such as to your vehicle in a car accident
- Vocational rehabilitation or training
- Lost earning capacity, should you be unable to return to your former job or career
Non-economic damages can include:
- Physical pain and/or discomfort
- Mental trauma
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
In cases where the other party engaged in gross negligence or extremely egregious behavior, you may be awarded punitive damages. These are a form of punishment for wrongdoers in such situations. These damages are generally capped at three times the amount of total damages recovered or $500,000.
