Howell and Christmas attorney analysis and comments: We have very strong wrongful death and survival action statutes in South Carolina that can be used to help protect the surviving members of someone killed by the negligence or willful conduct of another.
It is very important to note that if you or a loved one believe that a family member is the victim of a negligent or intentional death, there is a statute of limitations that begins to run from the date of the accident. If you and/or the estate of your family member do not file an action against the wrongdoer within the time period allowed by the statute of limitations, you are forever barred from bringing a claim against those you feel are responsible for your family member’s death or injuries.

Firstly, and perhaps most significantly, in order to receive punitive damages in a personal injury claim, it must be specifically prayed for in the complaint. It is not necessary for the plaintiff to specifically plead the amount requested; however, if a plaintiff fails to ask for punitive damages in the complaint, he or she will be barred for recovering them at trial. If the plaintiff requests punitive damages then a defendant may request two separate verdicts regarding, damages, one for compensatory damages and one for punitive, called a bifurcated trial. Firstly, the jury must determine whether or not compensatory or nominal damages are appropriate. If compensatory or nominal damages are awarded, the jury must determine whether punitive damages are appropriate.
If a jury finds that punitive damages are appropriate, it can award an amount up to three times the amount awarded during the compensatory damages determination, or $500,000, whichever is greater. The defendant has pled guilty to or been convicted of a felony arising out of the same act or course of conduct complained of by the plaintiff and that act or course of conduct is a proximate cause of the plaintiff’s damages; or. If the defendant intended to harm and actually did harm the plaintiff, then there is no cap to punitive damages. If the compensatory damages are high, the punitive damages can be high regardless. A similar award to the $25 million punitive damages in Florida award could be upheld in South Carolina under the current legislation.
