  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish

The statute of limitations in South Carolina for personal injury claims involving minors

Usually, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is three years in South Carolina (S.C. Code § 15-3-530).

However, when the victim is a minor, they have until their nineteenth birthday to start a claim. (S.C. § Code 15-3-40, stating that a person under the age of 18 is considered under a disability and may bring a claim until one year after the disability ceases.)

S.C Code § 15-3-545 addresses the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims involving children. The time limit may be tolled for up to seven years on account of minority up to age 19. The rule results in different time limits for different ages, depending on the child’s age when the malpractice occurred.

What makes a child injury case different from an adult case?

An injury case involving a child is different than one involving an adult in several respects. As discussed above, the statute of limitations is different.

The child must rely on their parent or guardian to make decisions for them during the case. The parent must decide whether to accept a settlement or proceed to trial, for example. Children often suffer serious injuries, and their case must take future damages and care needs into account.

A settlement over $25,000 requires a judge’s approval. The court must conclude that the settlement is in the best interests of the minor. Delivery of the money must be made through a conservator.

A settlement may be structured or court-supervised until the child turns 18. A trust may be appropriate to allow a child to be eligible for government benefits. A lawyer can help you understand what each option involves and what is right for your child.

The Supreme Court has issued Revised Minor Settlement Procedures to guide litigants in claims involving minor children.
