Our History

Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers are standing by for you.

As one of the first Jewish attorneys in Charleston, Steinberg experienced discrimination and this inspired him to assist another disenfranchised group during that time — African Americans.

The firm began handling criminal and civil cases, and in the early 1920’s, Steinberg became interested in workers compensation law. There were, however, no workers compensation laws on the books at the time. Steinberg and other South Carolina attorneys then gathered statutes from other states and lobbied to add a similar law in South Carolina in 1936.

If you have been injured on the job, you must inform your employer of your injury as soon as you can. You can report this injury to a supervisor, manager, or safety administrator through writing or in person. You have 90 days to report an on-the-job injury, but you are encouraged to report your injury as soon as possible to lessen the chances of your claim being denied by the insurance company or your employer. After this, you have two years to file a claim for benefits.

Construction Defects

South Carolina law provides that anyone who sells someone a new home, townhome, or condo guarantees that the home is suitable for someone to live in. Anyone who works on the home is liable if the work is done incorrectly. You may be able to receive compensation for the costs to repair your home and to recover for any expenses you may have if you have to move out of the home while repairs are performed.
