PERSONAL INJURY

No amount of money can put a person back to where they were prior to suffering an injury through no fault of their own; however, this is the only means with which we’re able to compensate the victim of an accident.

 

Most Personal Injury cases are “negligence” cases, and of these negligence cases, perhaps the most common is the car accident case. Each driver owes others a duty to operate his or her vehicle safely and in conformance with the law. A driver breaches that duty when he or she neglects to drive safely, and, in failing to do so, proximately causes damage to another driver’s vehicle and/or person. Our office handles these cases and will aggressively pursue recovery of damages to fairly compensate clients for their injuries. If you have suffered this type of injury, obtaining legal counsel at the earliest possible date allows for timely investigation and thorough preparation of your case, improving your chances for fair compensation.

 

Other cases may involve strict liability. For example, South Carolina has a “strict liability” dog bite law: If you’re bitten by a dog without provocation while in a place where you have the right to be, the owner is “strictly liable” for your damages. If you have questions concerning these issues or others, contact our office today at 803-909-9415 to arrange a free, confidential consultation. If you are unable to travel, we will come to you. Evening and weekend appointments are available for your convenience: During those hours and on weekends, Matt can be reached directly by e-mail, at info@mattburgesslaw.com.
