    Medical Malpractice
    Helping victims of Charleston car accidents

    People are hurt in crashes on I-64, I-77, Patrick Street, Lee Street and many other roads throughout the city. All because a negligent driver was speeding, texting behind the wheel, driving recklessly or had too much to drink. Victims are left with serious injuries and need to be taken to area medical centers, such as Saint Francis Hospital.

    What should you do if you’ve been in a Charleston car accident?
    • Call the police to the scene, even if the accident seems minor.
    • Get medical attention as soon as you can, even if you feel OK.
    • Gather contact information for all people involved in the crash.
    • Take photos and video of the accident scene and vehicle damage.
    • Contact an experienced Charleston car accident lawyer.

    Your life can change quickly after a crash. Suddenly you are left injured and need medical treatment. Medical expenses can add up quickly and you may not be able to work because of your injuries. This results in less income coming in and you may not be sure how you’ll be able to pay your bills.

    When a negligent driver caused an accident that left you hurt, you should be able to recover financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. But it’s not a simple process. Negligent drivers deny doing anything wrong. They may blame you for what happened. Insurance companies challenge the seriousness of your injuries and try to limit your compensation.

    Insurance companies have lawyers looking out for their best interests. You need an experienced car accident attorney who will fight for you. We build strong cases that force insurance companies to take you seriously.
