South Carolina motor vehicle accident and personal injury attorneys

The personal injury services we provide at the Powers Law Firm are varied, and include injuries in the workplace and injuries caused by both defective products and professional negligence—as well as compensation for car accidents in the greater Pee Dee region, including Myrtle Beach. We can help you get the compensation you deserve in the following areas:

  • Automobile accident injuries – This is the leading cause of injury death in the United States for people ages 3 to 33.
  • Motorcycle injuries – Statistically, you are in the greatest danger not on a road trip, but making a quick trip to the store.
  • 18-wheeler injuries – The destruction caused by out-of-control trucks can be devastating.
  • Workers’ compensation – Regardless of who is at fault, workers’ compensation provides benefits when you are injured on the job.
  • Malpractice – When the negligence of professionals results in injury, death or financial loss, we can help.
  • Product liability – Did you know you can file a claim of product liability for an injury, even if you aren’t the person who bought the product?

Your trusted advocate in personal injury claims

Consumer product defects and professional negligence cause bodily and emotional harm to millions of Americans each year. In fact, the National
Center for Health Statistics reports that each year, 27.7 million Americans visit emergency rooms for unintentional personal injury—and a shocking
121,599 people die each year from those injuries.

It doesn’t take much: a slippery floor, a loose lug nut on a wheel, a laptop battery that heats up and explodes. The variations of personal injury are great, but the business of tracking down the party responsible for the injury, and the collection and presentation of evidence is about the same from case to case.

 

Workers’ Compensation

Although South Carolina Law sets out procedures for handling on-the-job injuries, it does not answer the questions and concerns arising when one is injured while working, and then fired by the employer when he or she can no longer do the job. Often employers and their insurance companies will make the injured worker come to work and sit at the jobsite, calling it “light duty”. When the time comes to compensate the injured worker, his benefits are decreased because he was able to perform the so-called “light duty” work. This can result in an injured worker being unable to receive proper medical treatment and evaluation, unable to pay medical and other bills, and often, being left jobless, penniless, and unable to find future employment or pay future medical bills. Insurance companies have spent many years and countless dollars developing this and other ploys to reduce the amount of compensation given to the injured. Most adjusters are more than eager to “work with you” and will assure you that they are acting on your behalf. Do not assume anyone is working in your best interest unless you hire him/her to do so. The adjuster gets his paycheck from the insurance company.
