Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury. Reckless driving, distracted drivers, and faulty equipment lead to a shocking number of severe injuries and deaths every year in South Carolina. Victims of serious auto accidents often experience lost wages, property damage, medical expenses, and substantial pain and suffering.
Sadly, many victims accept the first offer from their insurance company without understanding that the insurance company's job is to settle the case quickly and for as little money as possible. With a knowledgeable personal injury attorney, you can:
- Get help determining the seriousness of your injury and estimating lost wages
- Ensure strong evidence is preserved and witnesses are not lost
- Understand what treatments you may need
- Fully comprehend your legal rights BEFORE you accept a settlement
- Help you document your injuries to maximize your compensation
- Negotiate a settlement that takes into account all future medical and financial needs
Although our personal injury lawyers may handle car accident cases on a regular basis, we realize this is a difficult time for you and your family. Let us guide you through this process and make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical Malpractice Cases
Were you or a member of your family injured as a result of medical negligence or a healthcare provider's mistake? Do you need help figuring out what really happened? Do you want to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions?
Our lawyers believe you deserve a clear explanation, and if medical malpractice caused your injury, you deserve compensation too. Our attorneys have the experience and skill needed to get results in medical malpractice cases. If you believe you or a loved one were injured by a medical professional in a hospital, nursing home or clinic, we invite you to call us with the facts of your case.
Types of medical malpractice cases our law firm handles include:
- Birth injuries or death
- Emergency room errors
- Laboratory mistakes
- Medication errors
- Nursing home injuries
- Pharmaceutical negligence
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a treatable condition
Don't expect a medical provider to admit their errors and compensate you for your injuries or loss. If you or a family member have been injured, you need legal representation. Please contact our office immediately to speak with an attorney at our firm.
Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect Cases
Although many nursing homes provide fantastic care, far too many fail to properly accommodate the needs of their patients. Untrained or overworked employees, unsafe conditions, and overburdened doctors can all lead to costly mistakes that might harm your loved one. Even worse, sometimes our elderly population is a target for physical, emotional, and financial abuse.
Common examples of abuse and neglect at nursing homes include:
- Improper use of drugs
- Improper use of physical restraints
- Non-accidental use of physical force against a vulnerable adult
- Falls due to caregiver negligence
- Preventable pressure sores
- Unexplained or undocumented bruises or physical injuries
- Verbal abuse
- Intentional neglect or isolation of a vulnerable adult
- Financial abuse including extortion, check fraud and unauthorized access to accounts
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to nursing home abuse or neglect, please contact one of our experienced attorneys immediately. As attorneys who also deal with elder issues, we can approach your case from every angle to make sure your loved one is taken out of harm's way. In addition, we have the ability to provide fiduciaries, handle estate planning, and navigate the probate court as it relates to any recovery that might be obtained.
