How Can We Help?
Our knowledgeable Lexington attorneys can assist with a range of accident claims, including:
Every worker in South Carolina is entitled to a safe work environment that is free from all foreseeable dangers. While many employers take the proper safety precautions, unfortunately, thousands of South Carolina workers still sustain on-the-job injuries every year, some of which prove to be permanently debilitating or even fatal.
Under South Carolina law, employees who are injured on the job may receive benefits to cover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and other expenses. Workers’ compensation is available to all workers (except for a few exceptions) in South Carolina regardless of occupation. At Stewart Law Offices, our experienced Lexington workers’ compensation attorneys are prepared to assist you with all your legal needs so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
When a workers’ compensation claim is filed, the employer’s insurer will investigate the claim and determine if the injury is covered by the policy. Workers’ comp claims are generally straightforward, because the injury typically occurred on the employer’s property, with employer-owned equipment, or there were witnesses who can confirm that the injury warrants coverage.
However, workers’ compensation cases aren’t always clear-cut. When workplace injury situations are more complicated, it is critical that injured workers are represented by a South Carolina workers’ comp lawyer with a great understanding of workers’ comp law. The role of the lawyer is to stand up for your rights and pursue the full benefits on your behalf. The experienced attorneys at Stewart Law Offices are prepared to help you navigate the complicated claims process.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a South Carolina car accident, you likely have a long road to recovery ahead. The Lexington car accident attorneys at Stewart Law Offices are here to help you. We have years of experience helping people like you who have been injured in a car accident caused by the recklessness or negligence of another. We’re ready to put our legal skills and knowledge to work for you.
You deserve the best legal representation available to help you obtain the maximum compensation needed to pay your medical expenses and support your family. With serious car accidents, the bills are often larger than the amount of the liability policy of the driver at fault. It’s important to remember that insurance companies do not represent your interests, while our Lexington car accident attorneys work solely for your benefit.
Commercial trucks and tractor-trailers are significantly larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, therefore a crash involving them can be especially devastating, causing catastrophic injuries. If you were injured in a truck accident, you need to contact a South Carolina truck accident attorney as soon as possible.
Truck accident cases can be complex and involve multiple negligent parties. Obtaining the trucker’s driving logs and records is critical to the success of a truck accident case. The trucking company and its insurance provider may arrive at the accident scene minutes after the accident as they attempt to control the evidence and fight against your injury claim. An experienced Lexington truck accident lawyer will have accident experts ready to investigate the crash immediately and legally demand that all evidence be maintained and secured, in addition to challenging the actions of the truck driver’s insurer.
The Lexington personal injury attorneys of Stewart Law Offices represent motorcyclists who are hurt by negligent passenger vehicle drivers. We help injured bikers in Lexington and throughout South Carolina seek the justice and compensation they deserve. Even though motorcycle riders have the same rights of the road as other vehicles in South Carolina, other drivers do not always respect the rights of bikers to share the road with them. Motorists may also fail to exercise proper caution when driving next to them.
If someone else’s recklessness or negligence caused your motorcycle crash, you could be eligible to pursue legal action against the responsible party. Our highly skilled Lexington motorcycle accident attorneys can help you pursue compensation for your losses.
If you were seriously injured in a boating accident due to someone else’s negligence, you could be owed significant compensation. Our experienced boat accident attorneys are well versed in South Carolina maritime law and will be able to show a judge or jury that a boat operator failed to operate their boat in a reasonably safe manner and their actions caused your injuries.
Under South Carolina law, wrongful death is defined as a death “caused by the wrongful act, neglect or default of another.” The law establishes that a wrongful death claim needs to be brought by the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate. State law provides that a wrongful death lawsuit is for the benefit of the deceased’s family, including the spouse and children.
The unexpected death of a loved one causes much confusion and grief for the surviving family members. Wrongful death actions, while very difficult, are important for family members to take following fatal accidents. Due to South Carolina’s wrongful death laws, it is advised that families ensure that the proper person is appointed as executor or administrator. The most important is to contact a South Carolina wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. It’s especially critical that is done prior to families speaking with any insurance company.
South Carolina wrongful death cases require a lawyer who is not only knowledgeable of the state laws, but also someone who can offer strong moral support, compassion, and empathy. The South Carolina wrongful death attorneys at Stewart Law Offices possess all these qualities. Allow us to help you in this difficult time.
