How Our Auto Accident Attorney in Myrtle Beach Can Help You

A Myrtle Beach auto accident lawyer at Joye Law Firm can assist in a number of ways if you or a loved one has been seriously injured. We will:

  • Investigate your accident
  • Locate witnesses
  • Identify applicable insurance policies
  • Help you obtain medical treatment
  • Calculate your present and future losses
  • Submit demand letter to insurer
  • Negotiate with insurer
  • File personal injury lawsuit
  • Seek a just settlement
  • Seek justice for you in court if a settlement cannot be reached.

We will investigate your Myrtle Beach car accident thoroughly and identify all the potentially responsible parties. In some accidents, multiple drivers have joint liability for an accident. You may still be eligible to seek compensation even if you were partially responsible for causing a crash. We will determine all the applicable insurance policies that may provide compensation for your injuries.

We will help make sure you get all the medical treatment you need, especially if you have been seriously injured. Prompt medical attention is important to achieve the best recovery. If your injuries require treatment by a specialist, we can help you get a referral.

Most people who have been injured are unsure what the fair value of their claim should be. Our accident attorneys can provide guidance based on our years of experience. That prevents insurance companies from trying to take advantage of you with low settlement offers. We will determine what a fair settlement should be based on the extent of your injuries, your lost income and the impact of the injuries on your present and future.

We will handle the paperwork and the negotiations with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. We will keep track of the deadlines. You do not need that stress. If you have been injured, you should not sign anything presented by the other driver’s insurance company without having an experienced accident attorney review the details.

JLF For the People Final
Our car crash attorneys at Joye Law Firm place a priority on good client communication. We will keep you informed of our progress on your case. If we receive a settlement offer on your behalf, we will discuss it with you and share our perspective on whether it is reasonable. We are here to help you. If you have questions, you can expect your attorney to return your call within 24 hours.

Types of Car Accident Cases Our Myrtle Beach Accident Lawyers Handle

People sustain serious injuries in many different types of crashes in Myrtle Beach. Myrtle Beach has a lot of natural beauty to admire as well as a lot of traffic during certain seasons. Many drivers may be distracted. Other drivers may fail to yield the right of way or fail to heed a traffic signal. Horry County, which includes Myrtle Beach, is among South Carolina’s most dangerous counties for serious and fatal crashes. This is especially true for bikers and people on foot.  Motorcyclists and pedestrians accounted for nearly half the total traffic deaths in Horry County last year. Many accidents are avoidable and are the result of a driver’s carelessness, distraction or disregard for safety.

If you or your loved one has been injured due to someone else’s fault, you should talk with a knowledgeable Myrtle Beach auto accident lawyer about your legal options.

The types of car accidents that Joye Law Firm handles include:

Many people consume alcohol while spending time in Myrtle Beach. Unfortunately, some drivers use bad judgment and get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Drunk drivers jeopardize the safety of everyone they encounter on the road. All alcohol-related accidents are preventable. Drunk drivers should be held accountable for the injuries they cause.

You should not have to face medical bills for treatment of injuries caused by another driver’s carelessness. South Carolina personal injury law allows you to seek compensation for your losses when another’s negligence caused you harm. You need a car accident lawyer who knows South Carolina law and can advocate strongly for your interests.
