South Carolina Lawyer Dirk Derrick helps victims recover from car accidents, personal injury & wrongful death.

The Derrick Law Firm recently settled a Myrtle Beach car accident case where our client, a Coastal Carolina University student, was the passenger in a reckless vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle was attempting to race another car beside it and in an attempt to "win the race," turned in front of oncoming traffic where the driver failed to yield the right of way. It was also stated that the driver had been drinking prior to driving.

When the driver turned in front of oncoming traffic, the passenger side of the car was hit. Our client suffered a laceration to her face and a broken rib.

The laceration created a scar above her eye, but thankfully her broken rib healed naturally, and correctly, and did not warrant surgery.

Because of the drivers recklessness, we were able to increase the value of our clients case.
