Personalized Legal Services in a Family Setting
We know that coping with life after an injury is difficult — and even harder if the accident occurred due to someone else’s recklessness. We also know how quickly financial hardships can arise when there are mounting medical bills and an uncertain timeline for your recovery.
Stewart Law Offices was established with more than just your legal needs in mind. You’re family to us. You can count on our attorneys to provide personalized legal services that deliver on both quality and compassion.
Your case begins with a free consultation with one of our experienced injury lawyers. Don’t worry if it’s too hard to make it to our offices. We can meet at your home, in the hospital, at a rehabilitation center or anywhere that is best for you.
The first thing we will do is listen to the facts of your case and discuss your legal options. South Carolina personal injury law makes it possible for people to obtain compensation if they have been harmed in accidents caused by someone else.
Talking to our Chester lawyers is important for several reasons. First, we can protect you from insurance companies that may use unfair tactics to minimize your payout.
Second, we can investigate your claim thoroughly to determine who should be held accountable for your injuries. In a basic two-car accident, figuring out who is to blame may be relatively simple. But if you were injured on the job, you may be entitled to more than just workers’ compensation benefits if another party contributed to the accident. We’ll identify everyone who should be held liable and pursue compensation from them.
At Stewart Law Offices, we understand how vital compensation can be to ensuring a secure financial future for you and your family. We will fight every day for you to receive full and fair compensation for your injuries and accident-related losses.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve
At Stewart Law Offices, our Chester personal injury lawyers don’t back down until we negotiate a settlement or obtain a verdict that meets your financial needs and goals. We’ll stand by you every step of the way, always offering advice but never forcing you to make a decision that you are uncomfortable with.
In South Carolina, accident victims can obtain compensation for:
- Current, past and future medical bills
- Lost income and diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Wrongful death damages (for spouses and children of accident victims)
- Punitive damages (in rare cases)
Our injury attorneys will build a solid legal claim that takes all of your losses into account. We do that by:
- Collecting medical records, receipts and documents showing the extent of your injuries
- Gathering physical evidence from the accident scene, photos, video surveillance and witness statements to show exactly what happened
- Consulting with medical professionals, financial planners, accident reconstruction specialists and vocational rehabilitation representatives to explain your limitations and what that means for the future
- Negotiating aggressively during settlement talks
- Taking the case to trial if an unsatisfactory settlement cannot be reached
Our skilled Chester injury attorneys provide all of these services without an upfront cost to you. That’s because Stewart Law Offices represents clients on a contingency fee basis. That means that we only get paid if we obtain a successful settlement or verdict on your behalf.
What Can We Do for You?
Our Chester lawyers work in a firm that has more than two decades of experience handling a broad range of claims, including:
Most South Carolina employers provide workers’ compensation benefits to their employees, which pays for medical expenses and partial wage replacement as they recover from their injuries. Employees who suffer permanent injuries are also entitled to settlements through their workers’ comp benefits, and family members can receive death benefits.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always make it easy for employees to collect the compensation they deserve. Our Chester workers’ compensation attorneys can help you prepare an appeal if you’ve been denied benefits and represent you at hearings before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Workplace accidents can result in severe injuries, and you shouldn’t have to pay more because you were denied the benefits you deserve. Let Stewart Law Offices fight for the workers’ comp benefits that you are owed.
Our Chester car accident lawyers can handle every aspect of your claim for compensation after a crash. We’ll negotiate with the insurance companies so that the extent of your injuries and losses are not minimized. You have the right to compensation if your accident was the result of negligence, and we pledge to fiercely represent your interests, both during settlement talks and at trial if necessary.
At Stewart Law Offices, we represent bikers who were injured in accidents in Chester and throughout South Carolina. Motorcycle accidents often result in severe trauma, and we will stand up for you so that you get the compensation you need during your recovery and beyond.
If you’ve been in an accident with a tractor-trailer or other commercial truck, you’re likely to have suffered significant injuries. Because these accidents are often the most catastrophic, it’s important to have trusted legal representation to look out for your best interests.
The attorneys at Stewart Law Offices will investigate your truck accident claim thoroughly to determine what went wrong and who is at fault. In these types of claims, there may be more than one defendant, which means that compensation could come from several sources.
Slip and Fall Accidents
The term “slip and fall” doesn’t sound so serious at first. But at Stewart Law Offices, we know exactly how severe the consequences of a slip and fall accident can be.
Head trauma, back injuries, neck injuries and broken bones are all common injuries associated with slip and fall accidents. If you have suffered from these or any other types of injuries after falling on someone else’s property, our knowledgeable premises liability lawyers will help you get quality medical care and compensation for your losses.
No one can prepare for the moment they learn that a loved one has died in an accident. South Carolina law allows the executor of the deceased person’s estate to seek compensation for the spouse or family members through a wrongful death lawsuit.
Our deepest sympathies extend to the families who have lost someone in an unexpected accident. Allow our reliable attorneys help you prepare for the future by filing a wrongful death action against the party responsible for your loss.
