Our Firm Focuses Exclusively on Personal Injury, Workers' Compensation, & Wrongful Death Cases
Our law firm knows that accidents can happen anywhere, at any time. No one wants to have a personal injury case anymore than they want to visit an emergency room. Nonetheless, when bad things happen to good people, we are here to help. Be it a car crash, on the job injury, or fatal accident, I have been helping families in their pursuit of justice since my first day in practice.
I am proud to call myself a plaintiff’s attorney, and have dedicated my legal career to representing clients in the following key areas:
South Carolina’s personal injury laws are designed to place you back in the position you enjoyed prior to being hurt. If you have been seriously injured due to someone else’s wrongdoing, you may recover damages (i.e. money) for medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, lost enjoyment of life, future expenses, and a number of other losses.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) has a dreadful way of changing lives. While your family and friends struggle to understand your condition, you wake up every day and deal with things like headaches, memory loss, mood swings, and even seizures that just won't go away. Let the Law Office of Kenneth Berger stand up to the negligent party who caused your injury and help you get the compensation necessary to move forward with your life.
If your child has been seriously injured in an accident or any other type of incident, you have only chance in our civil system to hold the responsible party accountable, and obtain the compensation your child needs to cope with the long-term consequences of his or her injuries.
There are a number of reasons why you may file a wrongful death claim. The legal process is often the best way to get clear answers about the causes of your loved one’s death. Your family might also need financial support through this difficult time.
If your loved one has been harmed, or has died, as a result of the negligence or recklessness of a nursing center, I will seek to help you in your search for answers and justice. There are all too many situations where under staffing, poor training, and a lack of supervision can result in serious injuries.
Almost every one of us has suffered a small burn in our lifetimes, but when an individual is severely burned due to another person's negligence, something needs to be done. Burn injuries can have lifelong physical and emotional effects. It is important that the person or business responsible for the burn be held accountable, and that they provide compensation for medical bills, time out of work, physical pain, and any other damages that have resulted from the injury.
Some product defects are the result of simple carelessness. Some are the result of a cold calculation in which a manufacturer decides that the risk of a lawsuit is worth the profit it stands to make from using substandard materials or failing to follow correct procedures. I firmly believe that companies must be brought to account in a court of law when they choose to gamble with the safety of our community.
Is the South Carolina workers' compensation system frustrating you? Are you afraid you're not getting the full amount you're entitled to? Are you worried you're going to get fired for filing a claim? Kenneth Berger is a Columbia workers' compensation attorney dedicated to properly handling your claim so that you can concentrate less on insurance questions—and more on getting better.
South Carolina healthcare teams must be held accountable for their actions when treating a patient. There is no tolerance for negligence, especially in the medical field. Errors on the part of hospitals and doctors can result in serious injury or death. When in doubt, schedule a free case evaluation with a Columbia malpractice lawyer, and allow him/her to uncover the truth.
