Types of defenses we employ
We understand the potential complexities of a civil litigation case. We anticipate what the plaintiffs will assert and we are prepared to defend you. If someone is seeking undue compensation, we look closely at the evidence. Some of the defenses we use include:
- Comparative negligence. South Carolina is a comparative negligence state. This means that, before awarding damages, the court will look at each party’s contribution to an accident. The amount of financial compensation will be based on these findings. If the plaintiff’s negligence exceeds the defendant’s, the plaintiff will not be awarded damages.
- Assumption of risk. If the plaintiff has willfully participated in an obviously dangerous activity, they may not be given compensation. We can use this defense if the harm incurred was a result of an inherent risk in the voluntary activity.
- Prior injuries. Sometimes, a person who is already injured may be involved in an accident and claim that their original injuries are a result of that accident. We study the medical records and talk to doctors to discover evidence that the plaintiff’s injuries were not caused by the accident.
These are just a few of the many defenses we can make on your behalf. We utilize all of our resources to ensure that we defend you to the best of our ability.
