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 harmed 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 harms. As a Columbia accident attorney handling cases across our state, I am here to help victims of negligence, recklessness, and abuse.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
My firm represents individuals and families throughout South Carolina. We have handled cases ranging from drunk driving collisions to medical malpractice. However, we accept only a small percentage of potential cases every year because I believe in dedicating our full resources to each client rather than seeing them treated like a file number. Likewise, 100% of my practice is devoted to protecting the rights of accident victims. In other words, I have dedicated my career to holding rule breakers responsible for the harm they cause. While we have successfully pursued a wide variety of personal injury cases since opening our doors, we place special emphasis on the following:
- Auto Accidents
- Injuries to Children
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Unsafe Products
- Wrongful Death
How To Make Sure Your Rights Are Protected After an Accident
No matter how the injury occurred, once an insurance company gets involved, that company's sole purpose will be to safeguard their own insured and pay you as little as they can. With this fact in mind, remember that signing documents and giving statements without first speaking to a lawyer can be problematic later. After seeing so many terrible TV ads, I never thought I would become a personal injury lawyer, but then I witnessed firsthand how poorly insurance carriers treat accident victims. I saw the games they played, the way they exploited financial hardship to settle cases for less than full value, and the tone they used when addressing truly injured human beings. First it made it angry, then it served as motivation.
Even though you might never need or want to hire an attorney, it certainly does not hurt to at least get some free legal advice from someone with experience navigating South Carolina's injury laws. Therefore, have a lawyer review your case at no charge. If you think it makes sense to hire them on a contingency basis, then do so. If not, leave armed with the knowledge you will need if you are going to successfully resolve the case on your own.

No one wants to get hurt. Likewise, rarely do injured people want to deal with insurance adjusters, health insurance liens, and bill collectors when they could be focused on getting well and regaining the life they knew. As I often tell clients who have been harmed due to accidents or abuse, "allow us to focus on the legal and insurance issues while you concentrate on the things you can control." In addition to providing legal counsel, we are here to make the legal process less frightening by providing you with answers. We want every personal injury client to experience the compassion and respect their hardships demand.
