Blacksburg Personal Injury Attorneys

Blacksburg Personal Injury Attorney*

The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to obtain compensation for injuries that you or a loved one suffered due to someone else’s irresponsible actions. In the legal world, that’s known as negligence.

When a drunk driver takes to the roads after one too many drinks, that’s negligence. When a contractor fails to provide respiratory equipment to construction workers who handle toxic substances, that’s negligence. When a trucker falls asleep behind the wheel because he or she did not follow mandatory rules for resting, that too is negligence.

Any of the examples described above are bad enough on their own. But when those types of negligence cause accidents that injure or kill someone, it may be possible to file a legal claim against the person or entity that is to blame.

The experienced personal injury attorneys at Stewart Law Offices have represented the citizens of Blacksburg in a wide variety of injury claims, including but not limited to:

If you have been injured in these or any other types of work accidents our lawyers can discuss your case in a free and confidential consultation.

Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle

Personal injury law covers a broad range of accident claims. However, there are differences in how certain types of claims must be handled, which is why it’s so important to have an attorney who understands those requirements by your side.

Workers’ Compensation

You should always feel safe in the workplace, no matter whether you work on a construction site, at a hospital or in a quiet office. Unfortunately, workplace accidents can happen in all kinds of settings. When they do, most South Carolina employers are required to offer workers’ compensation benefits to injured employees.

Workers’ compensation can cover medical expenses and provide partial wage replacement to employees during their recovery. It also provides death benefits to bereaved families who lost a loved one in a workplace accident. But just because employers are required to provide these benefits doesn’t mean they are always easy to receive.

Workers’ compensation is an insurance-based system. Just as insurers can put up a fight to make a payout to someone after a car accident, employers’ insurance companies may resist providing full and fair compensation to an injured worker. A qualified workers’ compensation attorney can stand up for you to help you obtain the benefits you deserve.

In some cases, you may also be able to file a civil lawsuit if a third party (not your employer) is responsible for your injury. That is another avenue that our lawyers can explore for you.

Car Accidents

Getting compensation for a car accident can be especially challenging, simply because they happen so often. It’s almost guaranteed that injured victims will receive low settlement offers from insurance companies, so having a tough car accident attorney to advocate for your interests will be critical.

Motorcycle Accidents

South Carolina is filled with motorcycle enthusiasts. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can lead to some of the worst injuries. After a crash, getting sufficient compensation can mean the difference between being able to afford quality health care in the years ahead and struggling to make ends meet.

Boating Accidents

Blacksburg residents can enjoy boating in many bodies of water in South Carolina. Boat operators are responsible for using their vessels responsibly to avoid accidents. When their negligence injures someone else, it’s possible to bring a maritime claim against them for compensation.

Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks are the powerhouses on the roads. It’s no surprise that crashes involving 18-wheelers and other large trucks are often deadly or result in catastrophic injuries.

Both the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the state of South Carolina have strict laws regulating the trucking industry. The intersection of federal and state laws that apply in truck accident cases makes injury claims especially complicated. An experienced Blacksburg attorney who understands those complexities can argue your case for compensation effectively.

Medical Malpractice

Suffering an injury at the hands of a medical professional is a betrayal of trust that can have lifelong consequences. If you’ve been injured by a healthcare worker or hospital, you could have a medical malpractice claim against the practitioner or facility where the injury occurred.

Blacksburg victims can bring claims against providers for injuries caused by diagnostic errors, emergency room errors, surgical mistakes, birth injuries, medication errors, a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose an illness, and other instances of malpractice. The best way to know whether you have a case is by arranging a consultation with a South Carolina medical malpractice attorney.

Wrongful Death

No one should have to suffer the loss of a loved one due to negligence. If a family member died due to injuries sustained in an accident, a successful wrongful death claim can provide compensation for both your financial and emotional losses.

While money cannot possibly make up for the person you’ve lost, it can provide financial security to ensure your family’s wellbeing. At Stewart Law Offices, our compassionate attorneys can help hold the responsible parties accountable for their carelessness with minimal interruptions as you grieve.
