Sports Injury

After spending decades fighting on behalf of injured clients, our Moore Bradley Myers attorneys know that each case is vastly different from the rest. That’s why we devote our full time and effort to every case that we take on.

 

Our attorneys will sit down with you and fully discuss all aspects of your situation. Then, we will help you determine your best courses of action and start developing a strong case strategy. Our litigation attorneys genuinely care about our clients and will fight for the full and fair compensation that you are entitled to. Either through your insurance provider, the party that was responsible for harming you, or a negligent third party, we will help you get the financial resources you are owed.


Those financial resources can help you pay for:

 

Lost Wages

Hospital fees

Ambulance Costs

Pain & Suffering

Damaged property

Disability-related expenses

Lost income-earning abilities

 

If you were injured and need to act against the party responsible, the time limit generally starts on the day that the injury took place. The statute of limitations is usually three years which may be less or more depending on several factors. That is why it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as practicable.

Premises Liability

In the state of South Carolina, property owners have a certain responsibility to ensure their premises are safe for other people. Unfortunately, visitors, customers, and even friends are severely injured when property owners are negligent in their duties.

 

You shouldn’t have to pay for these consequences on your own, especially considering they weren’t your fault to begin with. When there was a dangerous condition on a person’s property that they reasonably should have known about;
and it injured you, you could potentially have a successful case on your hands.

 

The most common ways that people get injured in premises liability cases include:

  • Negligent security – People can suffer injuries when a property owner’s security is negligent and fails to keep out a threat.

  • Slip and fall injuries – Many of our clients are injured when they are simply walking in a store and slip on a wet surface that should have been labeled or removed.

  •  Construction site injuries – Construction sites are notoriously dangerous and many people – both construction workers and innocent passerby’s- are injured when a site fails to follow proper protocols.

  • Dog bites and animal attacks – Many people suffer dog bites and animal attacks when negligent property owners leave their gates open or their property unmanaged.

Administrative Law

Local, State or Federal Administrative Law can impact everything from your job to your property. This increasingly broad area of governance operates under its own set of rules and regulative authority.

When someone convicted of a crime is sentenced, a Judge can order any combination of punishments: fixed term of imprisonment, payment of fines or fees or restitution.

At both the state and federal levels, the strategic practice of appellate law operates under a different set of rules than trial courts.
