Meet Mark Joye

South Carolina Injury Lawyer


As head of the litigation department and having represented injured persons for over 26 years, Mark practices what he learned as an Eagle Scout – be prepared. He believes his experience has helped him to be prepared for any circumstance and he puts that to good use in and out of the courtroom on behalf of those who have been injured by defective products, in car crashes, and in tractor trailer collisions.

In 1997, Mark represented the parents of Sergio Jimenez who was ejected from the back of a Chrysler minivan in an accident and killed. The case resulted in a $262.5 million verdict for the family and remains the largest personal injury verdict in South Carolina. When he’s not with clients or family, Mark can be found golfing, boating or bow hunting.

Q: What is my case worth?

Every case is different. The facts, the clients’ injuries, and the way the clients progress throughout the case are all factors that can affect the outcome. Once a client has been released from the doctor and I have all the medical records, I investigate each facet of the case and look at it from every angle. I gather all the information about the progression of treatment, future prognosis, and investigate the actions of the defendant before I begin to estimate what a case is worth. There is simply too much information in each claim to hazard a guess at the beginning, but I promise to work thoroughly and diligently until I know exactly what we have ahead of us.
