South Carolina Attorney Represents Victims in Personal Injury Lawsuits
Determined Columbia lawyer does not back down in even the toughest accident cases
While an accident can be over in a matter of seconds, the effects of such an incident can be life altering for you and your family. Nothing can change the past, but receiving fair compensation from those responsible for your injuries can help alleviate the physical, emotional and financial impact on your future. At Howard B. Hammer in Columbia, South Carolina, I will use my 40+ years of experience to advise you and best position your case to recover the much-needed compensation you need to move forward.
Attorneys puts experience to work for victims of driver negligence
From medical bills and rehab expenses to pain and suffering and lost earning capacity, I know how important financial compensation can be after an accident. When a driver breaches the legal obligation they have to other motorists by their actions or inaction such as not paying attention, speeding or driving while impaired, and you suffer economic or non-economic damages as a result, I will mount a strong case to prove their liability. South Carolina is a comparative negligence state, which means that even if you were partially at fault for the accident that caused your injuries, you can still file a claim against a wrongdoer if you were less than 50 percent responsible. However, your recovery may be reduced based on the percentage of your fault. In situations involving comparative liability, I will design a strategic approach and strive to build a case that improves your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve.
Aggressive lawyer fights for those who have lost a loved one in an accident
No amount of compensation can replace a loved one who was lost due to another person’s intentional or negligent actions, but it can provide you with the means to move forward with your life. At my firm, I have been helping the surviving family members of those who have died due to their injuries seek damages for loss of companionship, loss of future income, funeral expenses and other losses. Whether your loved one died due to injuries sustained in a car accident, slip and fall incident or they died as the result of a medical professional’s negligence, I will fight for your right to pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
Dedicated attorney informs clients about claim filing timeline
The time period in which you must file a personal injury claim in South Carolina, also known as the statute of limitations, is three years from the date of the accident. While the effects of a car crash, dog bite, slip and fall or other accident can be overwhelming, it is important not to put your legal claims aside. To protect your rights, I will work hands on with you to handle your lawsuit in a timely manner, keep evidence preserved and the case moving forward.
