In 2020, South Carolina alone witnessed 153 recreational boating accidents, resulting in fatalities, injuries, and property damages. Drowning and trauma were the leading causes of death when it comes to boating accidents. In many cases, it was often due to the absence of life jackets. Operational errors, negligence, and risky behaviors like drinking while operating a boat were common factors contributing to accidents. South Carolina has specific laws governing boating, including requirements for personal flotation devices and reporting accidents to the authorities. If you were injured in a South Carolina boating accident, contact our personal injury lawyers today. We can victims pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Child Sex Abuse
Sexual abuse of a child is an atrocious act that can leave the victim with long-lasting emotional scars. Separate from criminal proceedings, child victims and their families may seek compensation through a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator, his or her employer, or other parties who should have prevented or reported the crime. A child sex abuse lawyer can review your case to determine who, in addition to the perpetrator, may be liable and seek compensation for emotional suffering, therapy, and other needs.
School-related violence has resulted in an unprecedented number of injuries, and even fatalities, across the country over the last 15 years. Schools may be liable for failing to intervene when they have reason to know that a student has violent tendencies. Parents may also be held responsible for their child’s acts. A school violence lawyer work to establish liability so that the victims can recover for these injuries.
Insurance Claim Denial
Insurance touches every aspect of our lives – policies cover both the physical conditions and the practices of the businesses we frequent, our homes and those of the people we visit, and the vehicles on the road. If you have experienced a personal injury, property damage, or countless other torts, chances are there is an insurance policy that affects it. If your insurance company denies your legitimate claim, the denial can be a breach of contract and possibly bad faith. We can review your case and discuss the policy coverage and exclusions to make sure your claim is handled properly.
Business v. Business
Every industry is full of opportunities for conflicts with other businesses. From contract disputes to insurance litigation to intellectual property issues, these conflicts can cause injury to both a business’s finances and good will. We skillfully handle all types of business litigation and torts and fight for a personally-tailored resolution. One-size-fits-all just does not fit when your business is on the line.
Pharmacists fill millions of prescriptions each year, providing us with everything from vitamins to crucial life-saving medications. When a pharmacist is negligent, the injuries can be serious – even life-threatening. Pharmacist negligence can lead to dangerous drug interactions, dangerous over- or under-medication errors, or unsuspected side effects. We help pharmacy error victims and their families receive compensation for their injuries.
When factories or businesses allow pollutants to escape into the environment, the contamination can lead to damage to people and property. Exposure to toxic chemicals can lead to unhealthy soil and water. People who have been affected by the pollution may experience cancer or reproductive, immunological, or neurological problems. Having begun his career as a full-time environmental attorney, Mr. Jeffcoat is uniquely qualified to take on polluters. We represent individuals and South Carolina communities – including those in Lexington County & Richland County – that have been exposed to contaminated water or polluted land and help them recover for the damages.
