While the majority of our time and focus is on building families, we also advocate in Circuit Court and before the South Carolina Supreme Court for our clients to be made whole from injuries they sustained due to the negligence of others.
We do not accept many civil cases, but when there is a significant injury or injustice, we commit our firm’s resources, time and energy to vindicate our clients’ rights. Our firm takes particular interest in pursuing novel claims or unique legal theories. In one such case, we obtained a $3.75 million verdict for our clients and were the first to obtain a damages award against the State of South Carolina that was double the statutory limits ($1.2 million), by proving that two occurrences of negligence had occurred.
We review civil cases for no charge. We believe your injury should be appropriately valued, and reflect the serious long-term financial and medical consequences you and your family will experience.
None of this information should be considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the firm’s representation and in no way should be interpreted as a guarantee of a specific result for your case or any case. Every case is different and must be evaluated on its own merits.
