Personal Injuries Can Occur in Many Ways in Charleston

Some serious accidents cannot be prevented. But many personal injury accidents are caused by the negligence or misconduct of others such as a drunk driver who causes a crash. Some severe injuries lead to permanent disabilities and leave the victim unable to work. The injured individual needs all the financial resources available to move forward. The attorneys at Joye Law Firm handle a wide range of personal injury claims in Charleston and North Charleston, South Carolina.

Among the types of cases our Charleston injury attorneys handle are:

Wrongful death
Our personal injury lawyers will investigate your Charleston motor vehicle accident or personal injury and identify all who are potentially liable for your injuries. In some cases, more than one party may be held responsible. We will gather information about the insurance policies available to provide compensation and the amounts of coverage. We will notify the insurance companies that we are representing you.
We will make sure that you are receiving the medical care you need and help you find medical specialists to treat your injuries if you need assistance. Our personal injury lawyers care about our clients’ recovery and quality of life.
We will calculate your present and future losses and submit a demand letter to the insurer. We will negotiate aggressively with the insurance company to maximize the amount of your settlement.
If the insurer refuses to agree to a fair settlement, we will be prepared to present your case to a South Carolina jury. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and settle most cases without a trial.


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.

South Carolina law allows people who have been injured in personal injury accidents caused by others’ negligence to seek compensation for medical bills and other losses related to your injury. This is done by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party and their insurance provider. You may claim compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Permanent disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future wages
  • Pain and suffering and emotional distress.

While no amount of compensation can change what happened to you, just compensation can ensure that you and your family are not financially burdened by medical debt and other expenses related to an accident that was not your fault.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, you may have received a call from an insurance adjuster. It is important not to give a statement or sign anything presented by an insurance company until you have consulted with an attorney. You may be waiving your legal rights. Before signing anything or accepting any settlement, you should take advantage of a free consultation with a Charleston personal injury lawyer. If you or your loved one is trying to recover from a serious injury, you need knowledgeable legal representation you can trust. Trust the experience of our attorneys at Joye Law Firm. Since 1968, Joye Law Firm has been helping injury victims in North Charleston and throughout the Charleston area rebuild their lives after serious accidents.
