The SC Bankruptcy Court held that all of Debtor’s personal injury settlements were protected from the Trustee.  “Testimony established that Debtor had no medical conditions prior to the accident, that he was unmarried, unemployed, and had no minor children living with him. Based on the evidence presented, it appears that the entirety of the settlement proceeds were paid to Debtor as a direct result of the accident, and to compensate him for his bodily injuries. The entire amount of the settlement proceeds are exempt under S.C. Code § 15-41-30(A)(12)(b).”
