How to File an Injury Lawsuit in Myrtle Beach
From the moment you contact us about your potential claim, our firm will go to work on your behalf to build a strong case. We’ll help you get the medical treatment you need and pursue the compensation you deserve for injury-related expenses, lost wages or income, vehicle property damage, pain and suffering. You will not have to deal with insurance company representatives who may try to get you to settle for far less than you deserve, after which you will be required to sign away your legal rights for future action.
Your injuries or losses may have occurred through a motor vehicle accident or another scenario, such as through medical malpractice, the use of a defective product, premises liability, dog bites, nursing home abuse, or some other type of accident. Traffic accidents lead the list for personal injury and wrongful death cases, all of which hinge on establishing the negligence and liability of the other party. Per the U.S. Census, South Carolina’s 2009 traffic crash fatality rate stood at 1.8 per 100 million miles traveled, one of the higher rates in the nation. Statistics generated by most state and federal agencies show that the primary contributing factor in both fatal and non-fatal road accidents consists of drivers. Negligent drivers may be inattentive, impaired by alcohol or drugs, distracted, fatigued, or in violation of traffic laws.
