Motor vehicle accidents happen every day on South Carolina roads and they happen for numerous reasons like inattention, distraction, construction/change in traffic patterns, weather, excessive speed, emergency situations, or poor decision making. Many times, injured parties in an accident bring suit against the purported at-fault driver seeking compensation for bodily injury, lost wages, emotional damage, and property damage. In certain cases, if the at-fault driver’s behavior was particularly egregious, an injured party will seek punitive damages in an effort to collect additional compensation, to “punish” the at-fault driver, or to deter similar behavior in the future. Knowing the intricacies of the damages sought by an injured party is essential to effectively defending a motor vehicle accident claim.
