Types of Cases We Handle
The attorneys at Stewart Law Offices represent clients in a wide variety of legal matters. These include:
In South Carolina, workers’ compensation benefits provide wage replacement and medical payments if you or someone you love is accidentally injured at work. Workers’ comp can be a valuable safety net for you and your family after suffering a job-related injury.
Workers’ compensation benefits are a no-fault approach to compensation. This means that it is not necessary for you to prove that anyone in particular was at fault in your accident. All that has to be proven is that the accident and resulting injury occurred while you were carrying out the duties of your employment.
However, there are instances where an injured worker might encounter problems when attempting to receive the benefits that they are rightfully entitled to. Certainly, insurance companies will be reluctant to pay out. This is where Stewart Law Offices can come to your aid. We will carefully investigate your claim and collect the evidence necessary to bolster your case for compensation.
The aftermath of a car accident can leave you with long-term physical issues that impact your health and your family’s financial future. Reaching out to a Greer personal attorney who can prepare and handle every aspect of your claim takes the pressure of you and protects your legal rights.
The simple fact is that any insurance company you are dealing with is going to be looking out for their own interests — not yours. Insurance agents are generally going to be digging for information that will allow them to deny you compensation or reduce the amount you receive. This is usually done by arguing that you were at fault or at least partially responsible for the crash. Our South Carolina car accident attorneys are familiar with these tactics and will prepare a strong defense for you.
Motorcycle accidents are among the most devastating types of road crashes. A moment’s inattention by the driver of another vehicle can result in a life-changing situation for a biker and his or her loved ones. The latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to die in a collision than passenger car occupants.
If you’ve been injured in a South Carolina motorcycle accident, our attorneys will conduct an extensive investigation to determine who should be held accountable. This typically means other drivers, but could also be the motorcycle’s manufacturer, parts designer or a city or government entity.
Large truck accidents claim the lives of thousands of motorists every year. The sheer size and weight of a tractor-trailer means that occupants of other vehicles are far more likely to be injured in a collision.
Recognizing the threat, state and federal lawmakers have placed strict regulations on the trucking industry. This makes truck accidents particularly complicated and is a primary reason that you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after a crash.
Patients place a lot of trust in health care providers to give them the best possible treatment. When this faith is broken through an act of negligence, they may have a medical malpractice claim against the provider or the facility where the treatment took place.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or medical professional fails to adhere to the expected “standard of care” that another provider with the same level of experience would have given to the patient, resulting in an injury or death.
Although malpractice by doctors is most frequently cited in the media, medical professionals that may also be held liable in malpractice actions include nurses, pharmacists, dentists, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, chiropractors and radiologists, among others.
If you suspect that you have been a victim of medical malpractice, our compassionate attorneys can examine your health history and the relevant laws to determine whether you have a claim.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries can result in long-term disabilities and even death. If you’ve been in a slip and fall accident caused by a negligent property owner in Greer, our personal injury attorneys can help you pursue compensation for your losses.
Winning in any slip and fall case requires proving that the property owner in question acted in a negligent manner. Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are free from all foreseeable hazards. Examples could include removing hazardous materials, making responsible repairs and warning visitors or customers about dangerous conditions, such as slippery floors, open ditches or holes, uneven pavement, torn carpets, poor lighting, insufficient warning signs or broken handrails.
Wrongful Death Attorneys
The sudden loss of a loved one is never easy. It’s even harder when someone else’s recklessness caused the death.
On top of suffering from immense grief, survivors must often pay expensive funeral and burial costs for the deceased. South Carolina law enables family members to bring a wrongful death claim against the liable party for compensation to address the considerable financial burdens that arise after a sudden loss. Although no sum is sufficient to compensate for this kind of suffering, our sympathetic lawyers will fight for just compensation to help ensure the family’s future financial security.
