South Carolina Car Accidents Lawyer
Car accidents are the most common cause of injury and death in South Carolina and across the nation. In Upstate South Carolina, I-85 and I-26 are particularly bad highways for car accidents because of the large amount of truck traffic and frequent road construction. Negligent drivers, drivers using cellphones, drunk drivers and distracted drivers account for numerous injuries and deaths.
If you were hurt in an auto accident or have lost a loved one in a fatal car crash, getting legal assistance can be tremendously helpful. You are dealing with the pain and difficulties of recovery. As a Spartanburg/Greenville car accidents lawyer I can handle the details of your accident and injury claim. As you work to get better, I work to ensure that at the end of the legal process you are back on solid financial footing.
Impaired drivers in South Carolina cause highway injuries and deaths - TV Station WHNS in Greenville recently reported that a head-on collision in Cherokee County claimed the lives of two people after being struck head-on by a vehicle operated by an intoxicated teenage driver.
As the founder of the Knie & Shealy Law Offices, I have been representing accident victims for more than 35 years. I represent families who lost a loved one in fatal accidents, as well as people who have suffered catastrophic injuries in car wrecks, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis
- Lost limbs
- Scars and disfigurement
- Burn injuries
Achieving a settlement from an insurance company or a verdict from a jury depends upon being able to prove who, or what, was at fault in causing the accident. Achieving full compensation for injuries depends upon being able to determine the current and future costs of those injuries and persuading the insurer or the jury that this is an accurate and fair assessment of those costs.
At my law office, I make extensive use of technology in trials: exhibits, PowerPoint presentations, animation and videos. I work with skilled investigators and accident reconstructionists to gather evidence and then create simulations of what occurred. When needed, I work with engineers to identify roadway design problems, vehicle design defects or auto part defects that caused or contributed to the car accident.No Recovery, No Fee
At the Knie & Shealy Law Offices, I make every effort to make things easier for my clients. I never charge a fee for consultations and case evaluations in personal injury or wrongful death cases. In fact, there is no fee charged until there has been a recovery — either a favorable jury verdict or a settlement in a case.Contact a Spartanburg & Greenville County Personal Injury Lawyer
