Our experienced Summerville personal injury lawyers have represented thousands of clients who were injured in accidents. We work hard to assist you in recovering compensation for your damages and losses. We can represent you in settlement negotiations to resolve your accident claim and will stand by you if your case has to go to court.

Assessing Legal Liability

Sometimes, it is difficult to know whether an accident leads to legal liability or not. The general rule to remember is that people, companies and government agencies are liable for their negligence. If any of these entities were unreasonably careless in their behavior, then they can be liable if their actions cause injuries.

However, in certain situations, such as injuries caused by a defective product, negligence isn’t required for the company responsible for your injuries to be held liable for losses.

Personal injury attorneys can assist victims of many types of accidents and injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Dog bites
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Medical malpractice/birth injuries
  • Construction accidents
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Defective products
  • Maritime injury
  • Injuries involving industrial machines

We can evaluate the facts of your accident and help you determine if you have a case. If so, we’ll pursue your claim on your behalf.

Common Injury Claims

Motor vehicle collisions are one of the top causes of injury and death in the state of South Carolina. Over the course of just a single year, car accidents cause an estimated $1 billion in losses in the Palmetto State. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this includes $8 million in medical costs and the remainder of loss comes from lost wages and productivity.

Accidents that lead to these losses include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents

Each of these accidents raises unique legal issues in Summerville. For example, in a bus accident case, you may be taking action against a government agency and your claim will be complicated by sovereign immunity rules giving the government limited protections from lawsuits. In a truck accident case, you will have multiple potential parties to sue, including drivers, trucking companies and shippers. A Summerville accident claim lawyer will advise you on whom to pursue your claim against and will help you pursue your damage claim.
