Goose Creek, South Carolina Personal Injury Attorneys
If you have been injured in an accident, you may be able to recover monetary damages from those who were responsible for your injuries. However, you only get one chance to bring a Goose Creek personal injury case against a negligent party. Thus, choosing which Goose Creek personal injury law firm to represent you is a crucial decision. While you do not technically need an attorney to bring a personal injury case, those accident victims who retain an experienced injury lawyer fare better than those who take it on alone.
Clients hire the Steinberg Law Firm because we have been trusted members of the Goose Creek community for more than 85 years. We proudly apply the same level of care and conviction to every client we serve. Whether we are handling a workers’ compensation claim, car accident case, or other personal injury matter, we treat every case as professionally and carefully as we can. We are here to serve you, and our experienced attorneys work hard to get the justice and compensation you deserve under the law.
Who receives compensation after a Goose Creek Injury

• 10 percent of accident victims received between $25,001 and $75,000
• 16 percent of accident victims received more than $75,001
On average, those accident victims represented by attorneys fared better than those who were unrepresented:
