How We Help North Myrtle Beach Area Residents and Visitors

We practice personal injury law exclusively. Our practice includes:

Our dedicated car accident attorneys want you to focus on your physical and emotional recoveries without the additional burden of navigating your insurance claim or legal case. The experienced North Myrtle Beach personal injury lawyers at Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers will do that for you as we tirelessly work to represent you.

Boating and Jet Ski Accidents

Whether you join a friend on their boat for the afternoon or use one of the many commercial boating and watersport vendors in North Myrtle Beach, you intended to spend some relaxing or enjoyable time on the water. Regrettably, a day on the water can lead to a serious boat or jet ski accident. Our North Myrtle Beach boat accident lawyers will vigorously advocate for your recovery if the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of a boat or jet ski owner or operator leave you hurt.

Denied or Delayed Insurance Claims

Insurance companies often fight to deny rightful claims, delay benefits, or reduce your entitlement. If you are in such a situation, Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers may offer assistance. With over 30 years of experience in bad faith insurance claims and insurance claims litigation, we are equipped to help you navigate through these challenges.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, leading to substantial medical bills and lost work time. Insurance companies aim to minimize payouts to those injured rather than offering the total value of the accident claim. If you or a loved one has suffered a severe injury in a motorcycle accident due to another driver's negligence, contact the motorcycle accident lawyers at Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers to understand how to safeguard your rights.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect should never happen. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect do occur, and it could be your loved one who was hurt or killed. If you suspect your loved one experienced abuse or neglect in a nursing home or residential care facility, it's crucial to consult with a North Myrtle Beach nursing home injury attorney promptly. Derrick Law Firm is dedicated to helping you protect your loved one and advocating for the rights of all nursing home residents to reside in safe and secure environments with dignity and respect.

Personal Injury Accidents

Personal injuries resulting from negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts of others can cause physical and economic hardships. If you've suffered a serious injury due to the fault of another person or a business's negligence, seek the guidance of an experienced North Myrtle Beach personal injury attorney at Derrick Law Firm to fight for your recovery.

Spinal Cord Injury Accidents

Thousands of individuals suffer spinal cord injuries annually in the United States, incurring substantial treatment costs. Many of these injuries result from someone else's negligence. An experienced North Myrtle Beach spinal cord injury attorney can assist you in filing a legal claim and advocating for fair compensation for past and future medical costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can cause catastrophic injuries that result in accumulating medical bills, lost income, physical pain, and emotional stress for you and your family. Insurance companies often seek to reduce rightful compensation following a truck accident. If you've been injured in a tractor-trailer accident in South Carolina, trust an attorney from Derrick Law Firm to safeguard your best interests.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) disrupts the normal function of the brain and can result from a blow to the head or a penetrating head injury. Recognizing the signs, such as persistent headaches, neck pain, difficulty concentrating, and blurred vision, is crucial. Our North Myrtle Beach traumatic brain injury attorneys are dedicated to securing compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages.

Workers' Compensation

Almost every job carries some risk of on-the-job injuries. If you're injured while working, you may be entitled to workers' compensation. However, your employer and their insurance company may attempt to lower benefits or deny your claim. Our experienced North Myrtle Beach workers' compensation lawyers are committed to working tirelessly to secure your recovery.  

Wrongful Death

If the negligent actions of another person have resulted in the death of your loved one, your life has been profoundly altered. In this difficult time, the last thing you should worry about is an insurance company minimizing the compensation owed to you after a loved one's wrongful death. A North Myrtle Beach wrongful death attorney can guide you through the process following the loss of your family member.
