A person who negligently operates a
vehicle is required by law to pay for any and all
allowable legal damages he or she causes. All operators of vehicles must
drive with "reasonable care under the circumstances." If
such care is not used and an accident occurs, they are
responsible for all damages.
If you have been injured through the
carelessness, negligence or irresponsible behavior of
another driver, you probably have a valid personal
injury claim. It is important to preserve the evidence
photographs of injuries, the scene, skid marks, location
of the automobiles after impact, both automobiles
(showing the extent and location of the damage and
impact to both), etc.
Our investigators can assist you with this and we
will guide you through your case to see that you are
fairly reimbursed and paid for your medical bills (past
and future), lost wages, loss of earning capacity,
permanent impairment, disability, emotional distress,
pain, suffering, and other damages.
Because the legal system provides you with a
limited time within which to pursue your claim, you
should contact a lawyer immediately.
Unrepresented persons are unfamiliar
with claims and the litigation process.
Signing the wrong papers could mean you have
settled for less than you deserve and preclude you from
seeking additional monies (insurance coverage) that
you may have been available to you. You should not settle your
case until you receive the needed medical treatment.
You need an experienced lawyer to evaluate your
case considering all the circumstances.
Because of 28 years of
combined legal experience, we know the pitfalls

drivers should held be liable for punitive

against a reckless, willful or grossly negligent driver,
such as a drunk driver, to punish him and deter him from
future like conduct. We know the law and we aggressively
pursue punitive damages.
Additionally, road defects, low road
shoulders and road construction (particularly uneven
lanes) can also cause tractor trailer, motorcycle and
automobile accidents. It is important to take
pictures of the scene, any pavement edge drops, skid
marks, uncut grass or signs that may have blocked either
driver’s view, or other evidence at the scene as soon as
possible, if not immediately. Many times the South
Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) will
repair the defective road or shoulder condition shortly
after an accident. Pavement or road shoulder edge
drops should be measured and photographed with a tape
measure showing the measurement.
Injuries may also occur due to tire
separation or by airbag malfunction.
