What happens if I am partially at fault for my personal injury claim?

In South Carolina, the Modified Comparative Negligence rule applies to personal injury claims. This means that if you are found to be partially at fault for your accident, your compensation may be reduced in proportion to your share of the fault. For example, if you are found to be 25% responsible for the accident, any damages awarded to you will be reduced by 25%. However, if you are more than 51% at fault for your injuries, you may be barred from seeking any compensation.
