MYRTLE BEACH PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS

If you have been seriously injured in a car crash caused by another driver in Myrtle Beach, it is normal to feel anger and frustration about what has happened. You may feel financial stress because of the medical bills related to your injuries. You want an attorney who understands that you have had a serious setback through no fault of your own and you are going through one of the most difficult times of your life. You need trusted legal guidance now more than ever. If your injury was caused by another driver’s negligence, South Carolina law allows you to seek compensation for your injuries and related expenses. You need our compassionate and experienced Myrtle Beach car accident lawyers at Joye Law Firm to advocate for you and help you recover your quality of life. We are here to handle the legal issues so you can focus on your recovery.

The attorneys at Joye Law Firm have experience handling a wide range of personal injury matters. Our attorneys have more than 150 years of combined legal experience. We are proud that we can use our legal skills to make a positive difference in the lives of people we represent. We take a different approach than many law firms. We get to know our clients and their families. We take a personal interest in our clients regaining the quality of life they enjoyed before the accident. We are proud to be part of the Myrtle Beach community. Call the Joye Law Firm to have one of our 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 auto accident lawyers at Joye Law Firm settle most personal injury 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.

TESTIMONIALS

5 star rating
"I really don't know what I would have done or where I would be if it had not been for Ken and Matt. Unless you have been as down as I got, you can't understand it, but those guys really saved my life. There is no way I can say enough to thank them for what they did for me."

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A MYRTLE BEACH INJURY LAWSUIT?

The quickest and most reliable way to find out whether you have a personal injury lawsuit after a serious car crash or personal injury accident is to seek a free case review with our knowledgeable Myrtle Beach accident lawyers at Joye Law Firm.   To have a valid personal injury claim in South Carolina, your injury must have been caused by the carelessness or negligence of another individual or business.

For example, if a driver speeds through a Myrtle Beach intersection running a red light and hits a pedestrian who is crossing the intersection, that driver may have acted with disregard for the safety of others and be found liable for the pedestrian’s injuries. Our experienced attorneys will review the details of the accident, listen to your concerns, and explain your legal options.

We understand that for you and your family, this is more than just a personal injury case. This is about your life and your future and whether you can regain the quality of life you previously enjoyed before your injury.

HOW LONG DOES A MYRTLE BEACH PERSONAL INJURY CASE TAKE? 

It depends on several factors including the complexity of the case, the court’s schedule and whether the case is settled out of court. Our attorneys may be able to resolve your case in a matter of months if an out-of-court settlement can be obtained. But if the case requires a complex investigation and the other side is unwilling to settle, it may take a year or longer to resolve. Some defense law firms will not seriously discuss a settlement until after a trial date is set. If we receive a settlement offer, we will discuss it with you and offer our assessment of whether it represents a reasonable offer. It will be your decision about whether to accept the offer or proceed with the lawsuit.  Some complex cases that go to trial take two to three years to complete. Each case has its own set of factors that determine the timetable. However, we understand that this is YOUR case, and you will always be in control of it.  We will advise you on what we believe is your best interest, but the decision on whether or not to settle your case will always rest with you.
