How We’ve Helped Our Clients
In a case managed by Attorney Tommy Terrell of Joye Law Firm, a 60-year-old Myrtle Beach man with a pre-existing back condition received a $450,000 settlement after being rear-ended by a reckless driver.
Despite initial challenges due to the client’s pre-existing condition, Terrell’s strategic use of an updated MRI was crucial in linking the accident to the client’s worsened back pain, leading to successful negotiations with both the at-fault driver’s insurance and the client’s own Underinsured Motorist policy. The case underscores the importance of selecting the right attorney and the role of detailed medical evidence in securing fair compensation in personal injury claims, especially when pre-existing conditions are involved.

In another case, a Joye Law Firm client, an executive chef at a Myrtle Beach resort, was injured on the job and initially had his workers’ compensation claim denied due to a coworker’s statement about preexisting back issues.
Attorney Matt King and Case Manager Kayla Ashley successfully contested this, leading to a $150,000 settlement covering lost wages and medical care, as the chef is still unable to return to his previous position. The case highlights the complexity of workers’ compensation claims in South Carolina and the importance of seeking legal assistance early to navigate the system effectively and secure the rightful benefits.

We get to know our clients and their families, take a personal interest in helping them regain the quality of life they enjoyed before the accident, and, most of all, we are proud to be part of the Myrtle Beach community. Call the Joye Law Firm to have one of our Myrtle Beach personal injury attorneys review the details of your accident and explain your options for moving forward. The initial consultation is free. You will not owe a legal fee unless we are successful in obtaining money for you.
We handle personal injury claims and deal with insurance companies every day. From years of experience working on many cases, we have developed a general sense of what an injury case should be worth depending on the factors. If you are dealing with an injury claim on your own, you may not have a clear idea of what is a reasonable settlement offer. Insurance companies will often make low offers to try to limit their liability. They know you are feeling financial stress and may feel pressure to accept whatever offer is put on the table. The offer may even sound like a substantial sum at first glance, but will not cover all your medical bills or future expenses if you have ongoing medical costs.
Will I Have to Go Through a Trial in Horry County Court If I File an Injury Lawsuit?
Our personal injury lawyers at Joye Law Firm settle most cases without a trial. A settlement avoids the uncertain outcome of a trial and allows you to receive the money you need more quickly. However, if an insurer refuses to agree to a reasonable settlement, our attorneys will be prepared to seek justice for you in court if necessary. We are confident in our trial skills based on having won significant jury awards in a number of accident cases. Insurance companies are familiar with our reputation as trial lawyers. That makes them more willing to offer fair settlements to avoid the expense and risks of a trial.
