Victims often incur significant medical expenses and lose income due to not being able to work from their injuries. In addition, people who are hurt in accidents often experience substantial physical and emotional pain and suffering. Fortunately, South Carolina laws allow victims to recover compensation for these and other losses that they may experience as a result of a preventable accident. Our Lexington Personal Injury Lawyers at the Strom Law Firm are familiar with litigating South Carolina personal injury cases can often help victims recover substantially more compensation than they would be able to retain on their own, so it is highly advisable for anyone injured in an accident to discuss their legal options with an experienced Lexington Personal Injury Lawyers.

The CDC estimates that every year, at least 28,000,000 people across the country seek medical attention in emergency facilities for injuries

caused by accidents. Such accidents can occur in a variety of ways. Personal injury may occur as a result of a slip and falls, automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, work-related injuries, and the list of injuries in SC goes on.

Many of these accidents are caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person or company. When such an accident is caused by another party, the victim may be entitled to recover compensation for their medical injuries and other costs. Such personal injury compensation can include property damage, medical expenses, lost income, quality of life, and mental suffering.

When you or a loved one are injured by an accident, or if an accident has resulted in wrongful death, it is important to consult our experienced Lexington Personal Injury Lawyers to understand whether you have a valuable claim.

 

Personal Injury Claims Arise from a Variety of Accidents in South Carolina

There are many different types of accidents that cause accidental injuries. The steps to take in approaching each case are unique. Strom Law Firm’s experienced and skilled  have spent their careers successfully taking on and managing cases that arise from a variety of circumstances:

Car accidents

After being in a car accident, it is important to take steps to protect your rights, like seeking medical attention immediately and notifying your own insurance company that an accident has occurred.

Following an automobile accident, many insurance companies often reach out to the other drivers involved to ask for statements. It can be critical to speak with a Lexington personal injury lawyer before you give any statement to an insurance company. In addition, insurance companies may attempt to make early settlement offers that do not take into account the full value of your medical bills, your time away from work, your time away from your family, or the activities you were not able to do while injured. Always have your case reviewed by a personal injury lawyer before settling too quickly for medical compensation. Many insurance companies will work hard to take advantage of vulnerable accident victims.

Slip and falls

Slip, and falls are some of the most commonly occurring accidents and can often be caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person or business owner. Businesses and homeowners have certain responsibilities to keep their property safe for visitors, guests, and paying customers. They are responsible for accidents that happen caused by conditions on the property, including defective conditions. When you slip and fall, it is no laughing matter and you may have the basis for a legal medical claim.

A slip and fall often result in a violent collision with the ground, which can cause serious injury to the most healthy among us. It is important to speak with an attorney following your slip and fall because, at the time of the accident, you may not even realize the fall was someone else’s fault.

Whether you’ve slipped on a wet floor in a grocery store, tripped over a raised sidewalk, fallen on a curb or tire stop, or encountered a broken handrail or other condition, contact the Lexington Personal Injury Lawyers at Strom Law Firm immediately to discuss your slip and fall today.

Motorcycle accidents

Even the most skilled and experienced motorcyclists can be involved in accidents that result in multiple serious injuries. These can range from road rash and broken bones to traumatic brain injury and spinal cord damage. Sadly, these accidents can be fatal, leaving families behind with unpaid bills and the loss of a loved one.

Rarely will a motorcyclist not need medical treatment following an accident. They often require transport by emergency medical services (EMS) to a hospital. Medical bills and other expenses add up quickly. Fortunately, an injured victim may be entitled to compensation from negligent drivers and other parties. Speak with a personal injury attorney to determine if you have a legal case.

Boating accidents

Boaters and boating accidents can often lead to injuries and even deaths. Some situations where boat operators may be at fault include:

  • The operator was inattentive due to his phone or others on the boat.
  • The vessel had mechanical issues that were ignored.
  • The boater was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • The boater was moving too fast.
  • The boat operator was inexperienced.

While South Carolina does not require boat operators to carry insurance, every boat operator or owner should carry liability insurance, and many do. It is important to hire an attorney to work towards securing compensation from boat owners and their insurance policies when you or a loved one is involved in a boat accident resulting in serious bodily injury or death.

Trucking accidents

Truck accidents happen far too often across America. Truckers may be on the road for too long, overworked and tired, and make mistakes. Trucking accidents cause serious, and many times irreparable, injuries to drivers and passengers on the road when a large truck encounters a coupe, sedan, SUV, or even a truck or farm vehicle. An eighteen-wheeler’s size and weight make it capable of destruction when accidents occur. Whether an accident is caused by a driver’s carelessness, a decision by a trucking company to put an unqualified or overworked driver on the road, a maintenance problem, or a defect in the truck or cargo’s manufacturing, those responsible must be held accountable for injuries by filing a legal claim with the help of a personal injury attorney in SC.

Bicycle accidents and Pedestrian Accidents

Disappointingly, drivers often treat road cyclists as afterthoughts on Lexington roads, which too often leads to catastrophic accidents. The most common causes of these accidents include:

  • Aggressive drivers.
  • Failure to yield a right-of-way.
  • “Dooring.” 
  • Impairment.
  • Poor visibility.

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident or have otherwise been harmed by the carelessness of a driver on Lexington roadways, consult an experienced Lexington bicycle accident injury attorney. Personal Injury Attorneys may be essential to serve as protection from insurance companies trying to settle quickly with you.

Additional Areas of Personal Injury Law in Lexington, South Carolina

Whether injured during surgery, diagnosis, or routine care, hospitals, practices, doctors, nurses, and other clinical and administrative staff, who fall below the standard of care should be held accountable.
  • Bus accidents– It can be environmentally and financially friendly to travel by bus, but when a bus runs into a car or pedestrian, significant injury can occur.
  • Nursing home abuse– Nursing home abuse and neglect may present itself in several ways. All cause significant physical, mental, and emotional damages to vulnerable victims.

    • Financial abuse
    • Physical altercation
    • Sexual battery

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
