Meet Mark Bringardner

I’m a trial lawyer at the Joye Law Firm who handles complex catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases against insurance companies, corporations, and governmental entities. I represent people who have been injured, as well as the families of people who have died due to others’ negligence. I’ve been the voice of injured pedestrians and those hurt or wrongly killed in collisions involving motor vehicles, motorcycles, trucks and commercial vehicles.

In addition, I’ve helped people involved in construction accidents, incidents where there was negligent security or premises liability, actions related to dram shop laws in which a person or a business continued to serve alcohol to someone obviously intoxicated, and insurance bad faith. I have extensive experience in cases involving spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries.

Before joining the Joye Law Firm in 2016, I worked for a prominent personal injury law firm in Los Angeles, California.

Tell us about your practice

I treat my clients with respect and compassion. When a person comes to us for help, he or she is often in very difficult circumstances and needs understanding and personal attention. I seek to provide legal guidance based on experience. I keep them updated every step of the way.

I’m comfortable representing clients in both state and federal courts. I concentrate on taking on insurance companies that try to avoid responsibility for the harm that someone has experienced. Insurance companies are almost always the decision-makers in handling injury and wrongful death claims.

If an insurance company tries to treat a client unfairly with a “last and final” offer that is significantly less than full value, I’m not intimidated. I’m confident of my litigation skills and will be ready to take the case to trial. Every case stands on its own. But I’ve had repeated success on behalf of my clients, obtaining sizable jury verdicts and settlements.

What is the most satisfying aspect of being a personal injury lawyer?

I’d have to say it’s seeing my clients rewarded for my persistence. Since passing the bar in 2012, I’ve recovered more than $70 million for my clients, including what is thought to be the largest-ever jury verdict in Dorchester County history in 2018 and another in Charleston County in 2019.
