Steinberg Law Firm Named Best in State for Workers Compensation Advocacy
Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina
The Association of South Carolina Claimant Attorneys for Workers’ Compensation has named The Steinberg Law Firm the Outstanding South Carolina Law Firm of the Year. David Pearlman accepted the award earlier this month at the annual meeting of the Association held in Columbia, SC.
The award, which is made only in rare cases -when members feel that a law firm has excelled in the area of workers’ compensation – was given to the firm based on its advocacy for the rights of injured workers and its success in cases before the SC Court of Appeals and the SC Supreme Court.
In June, Pearlman and Kevin Holmes won the case of a teenager who was involved in a single care accident while working part-time after school. Tragically, the young man was rendered a paraplegic. The attorneys for the Steinberg Law Firm were successful in obtaining an award of compensation based on his probable future earnings. The firm’s efforts prevented their client from suffering a lifetime of poverty.
In November, Tom White and Kevin Holmes argued the case of a former North Charleston firefighter before the Supreme Court. The firm’s efforts successfully lengthened the period of time that an employee has to bring a claim for a repetitive trauma injury.
The firm, which was founded in Charleston over 76 years ago, has long been an advocate for workers’ rights. The firm’s founders helped write the original workers’ compensation law in South Carolina and its attorneys today remain committed to protecting the rights of workers injured on the job. The Steinberg Law Firm operates offices in downtown Charleston and Goose Creek. Its nine attorneys practice in the areas of workers’ compensation, auto accidents, wrongful death and product liability, social security disability and bankruptcy.
