We Handle Injury Cases Just Like Yours
If you were hurt in a workplace accident or are suffering from an occupational illness, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Most employers in South Carolina are required to carry worker’s compensation insurance to provide treatment and pay a portion of wages to injured employees, regardless of how they were hurt or who was at fault.
While workers are entitled to claim these benefits if they are hurt or ill, the process of getting them is not always simple or straightforward. Injured employees are often disappointed to find that the insurance company has denied their valid claim.
Fortunately, you have the right to hire an attorney to help you get the benefits you’re owed. Put your trust in the workers’ compensation lawyers at Stewart Law Offices.
Our legal team will help you avoid some of the common pitfalls that result in rejected claims. We’ll make sure that all required paperwork is completely accurately and submitted on time. If a second opinion or independent medical evaluation is needed, we’ll get that scheduled.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers also have extensive experience appealing denied claims and fighting for the full benefits that you need to get back on your feet.
Don’t let the insurance company deny your claim for benefits. Choose a team that knows how the system works and how to navigate it to get you what you’re entitled to. Choose Stewart Law Offices.
Individuals are hurt or killed in car accidents across South Carolina every day. A vast majority of these devastating collisions could have been avoided if one or more drivers had acted more responsibly.
Some of the most common causes of severe injury accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving aggressively (road rage)
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Failure to adjust for inclement weather conditions
- Failure to observe construction zones
Whether you were hurt in a sideswipe crash, a T-bone collision, a rear-end crash, a head-on collision, or another type of auto accident, it’s highly likely that you will incur costly expenses if you are injured.
If someone else’s negligence caused the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, repairs or replacement of your vehicle, lost wages, and other damages. But
determining fault and proving liability after a car accident will be the key to obtaining an award.
Even if the other driver was clearly at fault, it’s not uncommon for the insurance company to dispute your claims and try to shift the blame onto you or others. A skilled car accident attorney from Stewart Law Offices can investigate the crash, obtain vital evidence and demonstrate the other party’s negligence so that you are not unfairly blamed.
You don’t have to fight this battle alone. Contact one of our Hampton injury lawyers for help today.
Collisions involving commercial vehicles are some of the most devastating accidents on South Carolina roads. Injury claims arising from truck accidents are often more complex than standard passenger vehicle claims for a few reasons, including:
The massive size and weight of an 18-wheeler means that the injuries suffered by victims in a crash are often catastrophic or fatal.
Multiple parties could bear responsibility for a large truck accident, and unraveling the mystery of who is at fault can be challenging.
A seasoned truck accident lawyer from Stewart Law Offices can work quickly to secure vital evidence before it is lost, overwritten, or destroyed. We will also identify any and all liable parties and hold them accountable for their negligence.
Potentially liable parties in a commercial vehicle crash include:
- The truck driver
- The truck company
- The cargo loading company
- The cargo owner
- Third-party companies responsible for vehicle maintenance and repairs
- Parts manufacturers (if a defective part or system caused the accident)
Be aware that there are complicated state and federal regulations that trucking companies and drivers must adhere to. You should only hire a legal team that has experience with truck accident claims and understands the intersection between South Carolina and federal laws. Luckily, you’ve got that experience and understanding on your side when you choose Stewart Law Offices.

Bikers often suffer severe injuries if they’re involved in a motorcycle crash. Because they have little other than helmets and protective clothing to shield them from harm, they are among the most vulnerable motorists on South Carolina roads.
Also, an unfair bias exists against bikers. Many people (including insurance company representatives and jurors) view anyone who rides a motorcycle as a “risky individual.” But for the majority of motorcycle owners, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Stewart Law Offices protects clients from being unfairly judged so that they can achieve the best outcome possible.
Here’s the bottom line. If you’re hurt on a motorcycle through no fault of your own, you deserve justice just like any other injured individual. You have the right to expect compensation for the losses you’ve incurred and the injuries you’re coping with. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Stewart Law Offices believe this too, and we’ll utilize every tool the law allows us to get you the maximum amount of compensation you’re owed.
Clients trust us because we provide high-quality legal services that stand up to the challenges presented by any opposing parties. Contact our law firm today to discuss your case in a free consultation.
As a pedestrian, you have the right to expect that drivers will be cautious at all times when near you. If a negligent motorist hits you while you’re crossing the street, walking in a parking lot, or on a sidewalk, the consequences could be life-changing.
It’s easy to see why an accident involving a motor vehicle and a pedestrian can be so severe. Pedestrians have nothing to protect themselves in the event of a crash. A person on foot is simply no match for a vehicle that weighs 4,000 pounds or more. Even at low speeds, pedestrians could suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord trauma, and countless other injuries.
If you were hurt while walking in Hampton, we can help. We will fight to hold the negligent motorist liable for their actions. Even if you bear some responsibility for the accident, South Carolina law says that you still may be entitled to compensation.
