Injury Case Types We Handle
The injury lawyers at The Lovely Law Firm represent negligence victims in many different types of personal injury cases. Our breadth of legal knowledge and experience allows us to help the victims of negligence recover compensation in all of the types of injury claims that are described below.
South Carolina car wrecks make up the majority of our personal injury practice. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that an average of three million people in the U.S. is injured in car accidents every year. Motor vehicle accidents can cause the victims to suffer substantial economic and non-economic losses. Our attorneys work to recover compensation for all of the losses that our clients have suffered because of the negligence of others who caused their accidents.
Commercial truck accidents
Tractor Trailers litter our South Carolina interstates and secondary roads. South Carolina is home to the port of Charleston and several major interstate systems. This is a blessing for the state’s economy but can also be a curse for tractor-trailer traffic. There is a large disparity between passenger vehicles and commercial trucks in terms of their weights and sizes. A fully-loaded combination truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds while an average passenger vehicle weighs from 4,000 to 5,000 pounds. These differences make commercial truck accidents much likelier to result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities than other types of motor vehicle accidents. Because of the severity of the injuries and damages that result from trucking accidents, substantial sums are often involved. Insurance companies often litigate against truck accident claims aggressively. Our attorneys are prepared to fight for our clients’ rights in truck accident claims and know how to investigate these cases to properly identify every party that should be named as a defendant.
If you haul within or through South Carolina, you may have run into trouble on one of our many interstate highways such as I-20, I-95, I-26, I-77, or I-85. Even if you don’t reside in South Carolina, having an attorney admitted to practice here and familiar with our rules, regulations, and laws with regards to commercial truck accident claims.
Motorcycles are popular because of how economical they are and the sense of freedom they offer to riders. South Carolina is a great state to ride your motorcycle in. Bikers can be sure there is always something going on in the rider community somewhere in the state. While motorcycles offer riders many benefits, people who ride motorcycles have a much higher risk of suffering serious injuries or being killed when they are the victims of motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists do not have the same degree of protection when they are involved in collisions, and the physical forces of a crash can cause severe injuries. Our attorneys understand the unique aspects of motorcycle accident claims and fight to help our clients to recover everything that they are entitled to receive.
Slip and falls
Slip and fall accidents are prevalent and can cause serious injuries or deaths. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 29 million older adults suffer falls every year. Three million adults over the age of 65 suffer injuries that require a visit to the emergency department, and 800,000 die from their injuries. Property owners have a duty to keep their properties safe and hazard-free for people who are lawfully on their premises. When a property owner or operator negligently fails to maintain their property in a safe condition, a victim of a slip-and-fall accident may be entitled to recover damages. South Carolina slip and fall injuries frequently occur in hotel properties along our coastal city regions.
People who suffer injuries from dog bites may be left with serious injuries, psychological trauma, and permanent scarring. Unfortunately, our practice sees more bites involving children and women in South Carolina. Dog owners are strictly liable to dog bite victims when their dogs attack others while in public. Dog owners are also strictly liable when their dogs attack visitors to a private property who are lawfully present, including by invitation or for business purposes. If you have been injured by a dog bite attack, an attorney at The Lovely Law Firm can fight to recover compensation for your losses and injuries.
In South Carolina, the workers’ compensation system provides relief to people who suffer work injuries while they are on the job. South Carolina has a long history of strong workforces, and with that comes the need to protect themselves from suits due to employee injuries and unsafe work environments. From agriculture to manufacturing & tourism – the potential for workplace injuries is always there. People who are injured at work can file workers’ comp claims to recover their medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, and related costs. If a worker is partially or totally disabled by a workplace accident, he or she may also recover partial or total disability benefits to replace a percentage of his or her former income. In some cases, a third party may also be liable for causing a workplace accident, allowing the victim to recover workers’ compensation benefits while also pursuing a negligence claim against the third party. A work injury lawyer at The Lovely Law Firm can carefully examine the facts of your case to help you to recover all of the benefits and damages you might be owed.
Designers, manufacturers, and others that are involved in the chain of production and distribution may be liable when consumers are injured by defective products. While you might expect the products you buy to be safe, defective products injure and kill many people each year. The Lovely Law Firm works to identify all of the parties that are liable in a defective product claim to ensure their clients are fully compensated for their losses.
The unexpected loss of a loved one because of another person’s or entity’s negligent or wrongful actions can be overwhelming. Many surviving family members also have to contend with substantial losses caused by their loved ones’ deaths. The legal team at The Lovely Law Firm fights for our clients to hold the defendants accountable and to recover fair compensation for their losses in wrongful death cases.
