The following is a list of some settlements and verdicts obtained by Joye Law Firm’s South Carolina personal injury lawyers. The results listed are provided to be representative of the types of cases the law firm has experience handling. These results should not be considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the firm’s work and in no way should be interpreted as a guarantee of a specific result for a potential case.
The value of every case is determined based on specific factual and legal circumstances. In many cases, the amount of the recovery depends on the amount of available insurance coverage. Also, there may be legal restrictions on how much someone can recover even when they have sustained severe injuries.
For example, some of the results listed below refer to recoveries obtained on behalf of injured workers. The settlement amounts listed for those cases are based on third-party liability cases pursued against a party other than the worker’s employer since the amount which can be recovered under our workers’ compensation system is capped.
Joye Law Firm is proud of the results our South Carolina accident attorneys have achieved, but prior results should not and cannot be relied on to create any expectation about what can be recovered for a client in a subsequent case.
