We Handle A Wide Range of S.C. Accident Injury Claims
Everybody needs to earn a living. And we all have the right to do that in a workplace that is free of all reasonable hazards. If you’ve been hurt due to an unsafe work condition, you could be entitled to South Carolina workers’ compensation benefits.
Most South Carolina employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage provides financial benefits for medical expenses, lost wages and disability if a worker is injured on the job, even if he or she did nothing to cause the workplace accident.
Unfortunately, getting the full amount of workers’ comp benefits is rarely as simple as filling out the right paperwork and getting a payout. Many workers find their claims denied by the insurance carrier for any number of reasons.
Let us help. Our Rock Hill workers’ compensation attorneys understand how a job injury can result in significant hardships for employees who are treated unfairly. We will do everything in our power to prove your injury and help you obtain maximum workers’ compensation benefits.

Being hurt in a car accident is a shock, no matter how large or small the injury.

Truck Accident Attorney
Large trucks are the giants of South Carolina roadways. Even the heaviest SUV on the market is dwarfed by a fully loaded 18-wheeler. This dramatic size difference is the main reason why commercial truck accidents often result in some of the worst injuries.
Victims of truck accidents often suffer injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injury
- Neck injury/whiplash
- Chest and torso trauma
- Sprains and strains
In truck accident cases, you need a knowledgeable attorney who understands the complicated state and federal regulations governing commercial motor vehicles. Call our office now to arrange a free consultation.
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
By its nature, riding a motorcycle is a riskier form of transportation. Bikers simply do not have the same amount of physical protection on the roads compared to occupants of cars and trucks. But they do have the same legal rights as every other motorist.
If you were harmed in a motorcycle accident caused by another party’s reckless actions, you may be eligible for compensation.
Common examples of motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries (paralysis)
- Road rash
- Internal organ damage
Being injured due to another’s negligence is a serious legal matter. Seek advice from an experienced law firm with a proven track record of success. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help.
Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Walking down the street shouldn’t be a life-threatening activity. Sadly, it is. Nearly 6,300 pedestrians died in traffic crashes in a recent year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable in traffic accidents. They are not shielded from harm by a helmet, safety gear or the strong steel frame of an automobile. That means the force of impact on a pedestrian can be quite violent, even at low speeds.
Have you or a loved one been injured as a pedestrian in Rock Hill? Let us help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
Wrongful Death Attorney
Nothing is harder than losing a beloved family member in an accident. If you’re grieving the loss of a relative and you believe that someone else is to blame, it’s essential to contact an experienced wrongful death lawyer.
Money is often the last thing on a family’s mind after the immediate loss of a loved one. But if someone else’s negligence caused the death, you shouldn’t be responsible for paying medical costs and funeral and burial expenses on your own. Nor should you have to worry about the sudden drop in household income.
You’ll find sympathy, privacy and confidentiality at Stewart Law Offices. Let our hardworking attorneys help you through this difficult time.
Slip and Fall Attorney
Accidents that result in injuries at residences or in public places may be caused because a property owner or manager failed to fix a dangerous condition. If their failure to fix the problem or put up warning signs causes someone to slip and fall, they could be held liable under South Carolina law.
Examples of hazardous conditions include:
- Slippery floors
- Poor lighting
- Broken stairs
- Loose handrails
- Uneven pavement
- Icy sidewalks
Many different parties may be held responsible in a slip and fall accident. If the accident occurred at an apartment building, the landlord or management company may be to blame. If it happened at a city park, you may be able to seek compensation from the local government.

Dog Bite Attorney
Tens of thousands of people across America suffer dog bites every year. When a dog owner fails to properly control a dangerous dog and someone is bitten, compensation may be possible for the injured person.
South Carolina is a strict-liability state when it comes to dog bites. That means you do not have to prove that the dog owner knew or should have known that the dog could attack. However, the victim could be denied compensation if he or she was trespassing or provoking the animal.
Common types of dog bite injuries include:
- Puncture wounds
- Face, head and neck injuries
- Cuts and bruises
Suffering a dog bite is a traumatic event. Our reliable attorneys can ensure that your case will receive rigorous preparation and care as we pursue justice for you.
Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical treatment should be provided by highly qualified professionals that you can trust. But if you received care that was substandard and have been hurt, you may have a valid medical malpractice claim against the provider.
Medical malpractice is a complex area of the law. It’s not enough to say that you didn’t get the results you expected. You must be able to prove that the doctor’s care was reckless compared to the treatment someone with similar training and experience would have provided under the same circumstances.
Common examples of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose an illness
- Medication mistakes
- Inadequate monitoring
- Birth injuries
