Our Attorneys Can Help in Many Types of Car Accidents
We start by understanding your story. That way, we can advocate for the unique circumstances in your case. Each car accident has a unique set of circumstances. By understanding what happened and your personal needs, we can look at your case from every angle.
Some types of car accident cases we handle are:
Speeding and other traffic violations
A traffic violation is often a cause or contributing factor of a car accident. Speeding, stop sign, and traffic light violations, following too closely, lane change violations, and other traffic offenses can cause an accident. A moving violation can be grounds for claiming compensation.
Rear end, side-swipe, T-bone, rollover, head-on
Vehicle collisions happen in a variety of ways. Rear-end accidents, side swipes, and other types of crashes are all capable of causing serious injury. Examining the location of impact can explain how the crash occurred and prove fault.
Single-vehicle and multi-vehicle crashes
A car crash may involve one, two, or several vehicles. Our lawyers can look at the causes of the crash and the actions of all involved. We represent people involved in single, two-vehicle, and multi-vehicle accidents.
Drunk driving, driving under the influence victims
If you are hurt because of a drunk driver, you may receive financial compensation. Even if the person is criminally charged, a civil case is necessary to focus on the victim’s losses. You can bring your own case, and our lawyers can represent you.
Defective vehicle designs and malfunctions
A crash may occur because a vehicle malfunctions. Its design may make it especially dangerous. Investigating how a vehicle defect may have contributed to a crash can help determine how to pursue your case.
Inadequate vehicle maintenance
Vehicle owners must keep their vehicles in good condition. If brakes or brake lights don’t work, for example, the result may be a crash. We represent people when a car accident may involve inadequate vehicle maintenance.
If injuries are especially serious, a case needs special attention. Long-term medical bills and expenses in the future can be reflected in compensation. When victims have catastrophic injury, we are their advocates in the claims process.
Sometimes, multiple family members are hurt in a crash. When there are multiple victims, you need experienced and compassionate legal representation. See how we can help your family.
When a trucking company, delivery driver, or other commercial vehicle is involved, our lawyers can make sure your interests are protected. We look at the underlying causes of the accident and focus on your needs.
Complex determinations of fault
If the insurance company says the accident is your fault, get a second opinion. It’s not always easy to know who is at fault or even what it means to be at fault legally. We take all the steps needed to build your case.
Claims involving a government entity
An accident may involve a government vehicle or a government employee. Our lawyers know how cases work when a public entity is involved. We can explain your options and work for results on your behalf.

Legal Help for Car Accident Victims in South Carolina
If you’re in a car accident, you may receive compensation. Driving is a dangerous activity, and all drivers have a duty of care. Negligence is behavior that falls short of the standard of care – and it may be the legal basis for compensation.
What that means is that the party who caused the accident should pay victims for their losses.
That’s the law in South Carolina. You may receive compensation for the financial and personal impact of the car accident. Our lawyers can represent you in the steps involved to get your compensation.
