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

On a warm Summer day, our client was mindfully driving down the highway in the far-right westbound lane and the other vehicle was in the left eastbound lane. Suddenly, the car in the left eastbound lane crossed over the median and two lanes of traffic and stuck our vehicle head-on. Unfortunately, the at-fault driver died at the scene. 

Our client was immediately transported to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center via EMS. When he arrived, he explained to the doctors that he was experiencing pain in his chest, right and left ankle, both knees and pelvis and abdomen area. The doctors conducted CT scans, and X-rays where it revealed a possible posterior malleolar avulsion fracture. He was released in a stint for his right ankle and instructed to follow up with an orthopedist within one week. 

Our client saw an orthopedist at Strand Regional Specialty Associates and complained of his calf region, pain and swelling in his left big toe, the doctor confirmed that he had a broken bone in his right ankle and placed him in a boot. He treated for over two months and completely recovered. Our client also suffered a second degree burn, and started experiencing worsening of his erectile dysfunction (should I add more details or leave it at that)? 

Physical pain was not the only thing our client experienced, he suffered mental anguish and treated with counselors in order to overcome the anxiety, fear, and anger he had been experiencing since the wreck.

Due to the mental, physical and emotional pain this wreck had on our client, our Team at The Derrick Law Firm thoroughly evaluated all factors and demanded full policy limits. Attorney Derrick, worked hard to give our client the best result for his case.

Our Auto-Accident client settled his case for $175,000.
