A list of South Carolina’s top settlements and verdicts of the year was recently published by SC Lawyers Weekly. We are pleased to share that the Law Office of Kenneth Berger claimed two spots on this year’s list: #11 and #35. Despite the pandemic and the courts being closed for the majority of the year, our firm and many others were still able to secure 7-figure settlements on behalf of our clients.
We are proud of the results we achieved for these clients as well as many others in 2020. When people have sustained life-changing injuries or lost someone they love, we are here to protect their legal interests.
Attorneys Kenneth Berger and Brad Lanford at the Law Office of Kenneth Berger worked with a wonderful legal team including Chris Finney of St Louis and Mark Bringardner of Charleston to turn an insurance company's original offer of $350,000 into a $3.5 million settlement for our client who suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was struck by a car while walking down the sidewalk. Learn more about the case here.
Attorney Kenneth Berger and attorneys Christ Pracht and Kerrison Schmutz of Thomason & Pracht, secured the $1 million policy limits of Club South 29’s insurance after the club overserved the defendant and allowed him to drive drunk, which resulted in him hitting a moped, killing one person and seriously injuring the other. While no amount of money can ever bring a loved one back, we were honored to help this family seek justice and hold the drunk driver and the bar that over-served him accountable.
