How We Help Murrells Inlet Area Residents

All we do is personal injury and wrongful death. This singular focus means that we have seen it all in our three decades of legal practice in South Carolina. Do not hesitate to call us if you or a loved one has been injured by the negligence of another party in any of the following types of cases.

Car Accidents

If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, you should be focusing on your injuries and not dealing with insurance companies and insurance claims. Our team will thoroughly investigate your case and evaluate all factors.

Boating and Jet Ski Accidents

A boat or jet ski accident claim is the legal right a victim has if he or she is injured by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional act of another. Drunk and careless boaters abound in the waters around Murrells Inlet, and if one of them caused your injuries, you need us on your side.

Denied or Delayed Insurance Claims

Insurance companies often fight to deny what is owed to you, delay your benefits, or attempt to lower what you should rightly receive. If this has happened to you, our 30 years of experience in bad faith insurance claims and insurance claims litigation could make the difference in your case.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents usually involve catastrophic injuries that incur high medical bills and missed time from work. Insurance companies aim to pay the smallest amount possible to those who have been injured instead of paying the full value of the accident claim. If you or a loved one is seriously injured in a motorcycle accident due to another driver's negligence, contact our motorcycle accident lawyers for a free case review.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect are genuine concerns and are shockingly common in some cases. If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected in a Murrells Inlet nursing home or residential care facility, it is important to speak with one of our nursing home neglect attorneys right away.

Personal Injury Accidents

A personal injury occurs when you are hurt because of the negligence, recklessness, or intentional act of another. Personal injuries can cause you pain and suffering as well as economic losses like lost wages and medical bills. If you are seriously injured due to the fault of another person or the negligence of a business, contact our Murrells Inlet office to discuss your case with an attorney. 

Spinal Cord Injury Accidents

There are over 12,000 new spinal cord injuries per year in the United States. An individual with only a partial spinal cord injury can incur costs of $100,000 a year in expenses for treatment and care. The cost for those with a full injury or paralysis is four times that much. Many of these injuries are the result of negligence on behalf of another. Our catastrophic injury lawyers can help you file a spinal cord injury claim.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Recovery from them can take months or even years, medical bills can accumulate, and the stress on you and your family is enough without worrying about your insurance company. Insurance companies often attempt to lower the amount of money you are rightly owed following an accident. If you have been injured in a tractor-trailer accident in South Carolina, you need an attorney who will look out for your interests.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Car accidents are the second leading cause of TBIs. If you have suffered a TBI, you need medical treatment to reduce the risk of long-term effects. Our TBI lawyers will work to get you the treatment you need.

Workers' Compensation

Nearly every job carries some risk of being injured on the job. If you are hurt while working, you are entitled to workers' compensation for medical bills, ongoing therapy, lost wages, and more. Your employer and insurance company may try to lower those benefits or deny your claim. If you are seriously hurt at work, contact the workers' comp lawyers in our Murrells Inlet office for a free case review.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one has been killed by the negligent act of another, your life has changed drastically. In coping with your loss, the last thing you should be worried about is your insurance company lowering the amount of money you are owed.  If your loved one was prematurely taken away, contact our wrongful death legal team in Murrells Inlet.
