Taking legal action to collect compensation for injuries suffered due to someone else

Negligence is one of the most common causes of personal injury lawsuits. It is defined as when a person or company acts in a way that is careless, causing injury to another. It implies that there was a duty of reasonable care owed that was not provided. Injuries due to negligence can include construction defects, improperly maintaining a property or vehicle, and driving while intoxicated.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

When personal injuries arise, they impact personal finances in many ways. When legal representation is needed, Steinberg Law Firm provides experienced personal injury attorneys to help with:

Car and vehicle accidents — This category includes large truck accidents and motorcycle accidents, as well as pedestrian and bicycle accidents.

Serious injury cases — Serious injury cases include head and spinal cord injuries, dog bites, and other personal injuries that may require hospitalization or surgery, or that cause permanent disability.

Premises Liability — Property owners have a responsibility to those who visit to maintain the premises. Common injuries occur due to slip, trip, and fall accidents, poor security, and dog bites.

Medical malpractice and nursing home abuse — When you or a loved one are treated negligently by those responsible for your care, the effects can be devastating.

Large truck accidents are particularly dangerous and can inflict costly casualties on victims. Large semi-trucks weigh several times more than standard passenger cars, have higher ground clearance, and require a great deal more stopping distance than a passenger car traveling at the same speed. That makes accidents with large trucks, such as tractor-trailers, particularly deadly and costly for accident victims.

Likewise, accidents involving motorcycles are particularly injurious and deadly for motorcycle riders and passengers. Other than helmets and other safety gear worn, motorcyclists and their passengers have very little protection in an accident. That means bikers suffer the worst of virtually any accident.

Why Choose the Steinberg Law Firm

Injuries Can Have Lifetime Consequences

Every year, unintentional injuries cause more than 24 million doctor visits and over 97 million emergency visits according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Additionally, over 200,000 people die each year from unintentional injuries and violence. That adds up to about a tenth of the nation’s population every year suffering some form of personal injury that requires medical treatment or causes death. The most common injury-related cause of emergency room visits is unintentional falls, which also lead to over 42,000 fatalities in the U.S. every year. The second most common injury treated in emergency rooms was caused by motor vehicle accidents, which also lead to over 40,000 fatalities every year.

The cost of personal injuries in South Carolina

In 2019, the total cost of unintentional injuries in the U.S., including medical expenses, lost wages and productivity was over $1 trillion, according to the National Safety Council.

Sorting out which party is at fault and dealing with insurance adjusters is a taxing experience when recuperating from a bad accident. An experienced car accident injury attorney is a great asset when dealing with the aftermath. That is particularly true when the cause is disputed and both parties claim financial losses.

Let Us Handle the Insurance Companies

When personal injuries occur in South Carolina due to negligence, liable parties need to pay the costs of medical treatment and other financial losses.

Whether the issue is premises liability, such as a wet floor in a grocery store, or a defective product that causes injury or death, the cost of treating personal injuries can be great. Economic losses can include lost wages, medical treatment expenses and even the cost of a caretaker to assist with daily tasks.

Even doctors, professional caretakers, and entire facilities, such as nursing homes, can be liable for injuries and death arising from negligent acts. When loved ones suffer due to the negligent or even criminal acts done by those who are tasked with caring for them, the suffering is compounded. An experienced personal injury attorney can help hold liable parties accountable and prevent further abuses.

The Cost of Negligence Can Be High

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we can help you understand your legal options for recovery. We know that you prioritize the safety of your family and friends, and if one of your loved ones is involved in an accident due to another person’s negligence, our Charleston personal injury lawyers work to hold the responsible party legally accountable for all damages caused.

The Costs of Personal Injuries

The cost of injuries in South Carolina

In South Carolina, the economic loss caused by fatal car accidents including the cost of treating injuries, lost wages and property damage, totaled more than $4.7 billion in 2019, according to the South Carolina Traffic Collision Fact Book. Costs associated with treating injuries resulting from traffic accidents have risen millions of dollars in the last several years, as have the costs of treating injuries from other common causes.

Speeding and Driving Under the Influence

Driving too fast for road conditions accounted for the most fatal collisions in 2019, causing 217 deaths. That equals about 27 percent of all deadly accidents in South Carolina and illustrates the extent to which one driver’s bad judgment can kill. South Carolina’s Department of Public Safety also shows DUI drivers accounted for 210 deaths in the state, or 24 percent of the total.

THE Prevalence of Car Accidents

Among personal injury cases, car accidents account for the most claims and settlement payouts by those held liable. In South Carolina, there is one injury accident every 13.6 minutes, and one fatality every 8.7 hours. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates car accident fatalities inflict more than $55 billion in annual costs across the nation.
