Who is liable if I am injured at work?

If you have been injured at work, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages through your employer’s workers’ compensation policy. Employers have the responsibility to keep the workplace safe for employees. If you have been injured due to a slip and fall on work premises, or if you have inhaled toxic fumes at work, or if you have sustained any other injury at no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation. Common workplace and premises liability claims are slip and fall, elevator and escalator injuries, stair collapse, fires, and countless others. We have a proven track record in successfully representing injured workers before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.

What kind of compensation might I be owed if I was hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence?

In a personal injury case, if you have been injured or suffered property damage, or any other kind of loss, you may be eligible to seek compensation from whoever caused the accident. Financial compensation may include loss of past and future earnings, medical bills for injuries sustained, and other costs associated with the accident.

If you have lost a loved one to an accident, you may be able to take legal action to hold those accountable for their demise responsible. Financial compensation for wrongful death cases are designed to assist with funeral expenses, pre-death medical cares, pain and suffering of family and loved ones, loss of financial contribution, services, and support and loss of companionship. While no amount of money will bring back your loved one, financial compensation will help your family with expenses while you recover from this loss.

How long will my case take?

It is hard to determine how long personal injury cases may take because every case is different. The most efficient way to determine how long your case may take is to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer today. Each case varies so much that is hard to pinpoint how long your case may take. However, if your case requires the collection of a lot of evidence, witness testimonies, or has general delays in proceeding, then your case may take longer. While taking the first insurance settlement may seem like a quick and easy fix, it is essential to know that you are entitled to much more than what an adjust is trying to settle for. Once we are given a case, we begin working immediately to gather evidence and learn all the facts to make the strongest case possible for you. Our attorneys work diligently and relentlessly to win your case and will continue to do so throughout your case. Call us today to discuss the specifics of your case and determine an estimate of how long your case may take.
