We Work To Maximize What You Recover After An Injury Accident

Lives can change instantly when accidents occur. Serious injuries can leave individuals unable to work for an extended period. In some instances, an accident may leave a person permanently injured and unable to ever return to work. The most tragic accidents result in the death of a loved one.

If a serious injury or a fatal accident that was caused by someone else has disrupted your life, you may feel overwhelmed and uncertain about what steps to take. Once the immediate needs of injured parties have been addressed, the most important step is to enlist the assistance of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer.

South Carolina is a "contributory negligence" state, which means the plaintiff cannot collect damages if it can show that he or she was responsible for the accident in any way.

The Perfect Mix Of Toughness And Tenderness

At McCormick Law Firm in Beaufort, we provide injured parties throughout South Carolina's Lowcountry with smart and assertive legal counsel aimed at maximizing the amount they recover in personal injury lawsuits. We also bring a caring approach to helping our clients receive the medical treatment they need. We will handle all communication on your behalf with insurance company representatives, medical providers and others.

Earlier in his career, attorney Harvey W. McCormick had worked the "other side" of these cases while working with an insurance defense firm. Harvey understands the strategies insurance providers use to minimize the amount they payout in settlements and verdicts, and he knows how to counter with facts-based arguments that produce positive results.

We have the resources to develop strong cases and the skills to present them in court whenever necessary. It is important that insurance company representatives understand from the start that you are working with a lawyer who is willing to litigate when a fair settlement is not on the table. Our firm has established that reputation.

What You Can Recover

We represent clients in the full range of personal injury lawsuits. These include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites and other premises liability incidents. We also represent family members in wrongful death lawsuits. If you are injured due to someone else's negligence, or if you lose a loved one, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Lost wages and loss of earning power
  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost or damaged property
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Prompt Action Is Important

In most South Carolina injury cases, plaintiffs have up to three years to file a lawsuit. However, prompt action is always recommended. Important evidence may disappear if too much time expires or an injured party may make mistakes regarding medical treatment that negatively affects the outcome.

Our law firm accepts personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. There are no upfront costs and we only get paid if we help you recover compensation. The initial consultation is free. Call 843-593-0359 or use our online contact form to schedule a meeting.
