How We Help North Myrtle Beach Area Residents & Visitors

Our practice areas include:

Car Accidents

If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, you should be focusing on your injuries and not with dealing with insurance companies and insurance claims. The North Charleston car accident attorneys at The Derrick Law Firm will thoroughly investigate your case and evaluate all factors to get you the benefits you need. The Derrick Law Firm strives every day to outwork their opponents, get the full value of each case, and treat clients like family along the way.

Boating & 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.

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, The Derrick Law Firm may be able to help you with their 30 years of experience in bad faith insurance claims and insurance claims litigation.

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 are seriously injured in a motorcycle accident due to another driver's negligence, contact motorcycle accident lawyers at The Derrick Law Firm for a free case review. With over 30 years of experience, attorneys at The Derrick Law Firm will work to obtain the full value of your case and treat you like family along the way.

Nursing Home Neglect & 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 nursing home or residential care facility, it is important to speak with a South Carolina nursing home neglect attorney right away. At The Derrick Law Firm, we focus on personal injury claims, including nursing home neglect and abuse.

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, you may need an experienced North Charleston personal injury attorney to help you get the benefits you need. 

Spinal Cord Injury Accidents

There are over 12,000 new cases of 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. A good attorney can help you file a spinal cord injury claim to help you get the compensation for your medical costs, lost wages and other needs.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can happen in the blink of 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 best 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 TBI's. Signs of a traumatic brain injury include headaches and neck pain that won't go away, difficulty concentrating, and blurred vision among many other symptoms. If you have suffered a TBI, you need medical treatment to reduce the risk of long term effects. Injury attorneys at The Derrick Law Firm will work to get you the treatment you need as well as compensation for your injuries, any lost wages, and pain and suffering. 

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, etc... Your employer and insurance company may try to lower those benefits or deny your claim. If you are seriously hurt at work, contact The Derrick Law Firm 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 rightly owed. A wrongful death attorney can help you receive the benefits you need following your family member's death.
