A: If you have sustained injuries, including a concussion and facial stitches, due to a hazardously mounted road sign on the sidewalk, you may have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim. Documenting the incident with pictures and seeking immediate medical attention strengthens your case by providing evidence of the hazardous condition and the resulting injuries. In a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages caused by the unsafe condition.

A: Until you arrange a free initial consult with an attorney in South Carolina to discuss your accident, keep in mind that these kinds of cases could involve notice of claim elements. If applicable, these provisions mean short filing deadlines. I'm sorry about your accident - I hope you have a healthy recovery. Good luck
