Personal Injury Law

We are committed to getting you fair compensation fast, without sacrificing dollars.  Dana is a natural in the courtroom and loves going to trial but she also knows the litigation process is slow and stressful. Because of her humble roots, Dana understands that patience does not pay your bills.

When you hire Dana, we get to work immediately and do not slow down until we are done.  We rely on sophisticated technology and unflinching negotiation skills to present a clear case to our opponent and get you meaningful results.

Of course, we can and will go to court if that's what is right for you! 

Crashed Car

Automobile Accidents

When your life is disrupted - sometimes permanently - due to the negligence of another individual, you are entitled to be fully compensated for the other driver's negligence. 

Medical bills pile up fast and often reach tens of thousands of dollars or more.  However, you're entitled to compensation for all of your damages, not just medical bills, this may include lost wages, the estimated cost of future medical care, pain and suffering, and, in some circumstances, even the cost of remodeling your home to accommodate an injury (for example, installing handrails or building a wheelchair ramp).

Insurance agents often call you in the early days after an accident and usher you down a road to settle your claim for the least amount of money possible.  You should avoid these conversations, instead contact a trustworthy attorney to discuss your case.

Emergency Vehicles

Wrongful Death

As you grieve a loved one, it can be emotionally overwhelming to navigate all the complex legal issues at hand.  Dana knows this first hand, as she lost her Dad and brother tragically. 

We will handle your case with the attention and respect that it deserves.  No matter the circumstances of your case, you will get our personal and focussed attention every step of the way - from gathering evidence, properly calculating damages, negotiations, and trial when necessary.

Slip and Fall Accidents

There are near limitless scenarios that can give rise to a premises liability claim.  Every case is unique, so it is important to hire an attorney who is experienced in a variety of premises liability claims.  The following are examples of premises liability cases Dana has handled:  debris left in walkway, not cleaning up a spilled liquid, not fixing holes on a property, failing to abide by building codes, insufficient lighting, failing to perform necessary maintenance.  

Time is of the essence in any slip & fall claim, because valuable evidence may disappear within hours of your injury. This evidence might include testimony from eyewitnesses, photographs of the scene, surveillance camera footage.  The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can investigate your accident.  

Dana will review every aspect of your case, interview witnesses, and possibly bring in an expert witness to ensure your case is as strong as possible.  We will make sure your claim includes all potentially recoverable damages and injury-related expenses.

Dog Bites

In South Carolina, dog owners are strictly liable if their dog attacks someone, even if the dog has never bitten anyone before, and even if the owner did not know the dog was dangerous.  

Many dog bites cause scarring, disfigurement, and infections.  Recovering fair compensation after a dog bite can involve complicated legal battles.  We will fight for you to make sure you receive fair compensation, for not only your medical bills, but also your emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Ride Share Laws

Uber and Lyft both cover their drivers with a $1 Million Dollar insurance policy.  If a rideshare driver was on duty and caused an accident that resulted in your injuries, then you can bring a claim against the policy.  This is true whether you were a passenger, pedestrian, or a driver or passenger in another vehicle.  

Coverage may also be provided if you were an Uber or Lyft passenger and your rideshare vehicle was hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver.  

Uber and Lyft's insurance policy does not apply to accidents caused when a driver is not on duty.  Determining insurance liability is just one of the many complicated steps in the process of filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim after a rideshare crash.  We will help you overcome the legal hurdles and hold liable parties accountable for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.  

Drug and Syringe

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can happen in any area of medicine and at even the best hospitals.  Common areas for medical malpractice include:  birth injuries, surgical errors, misdiagnosis (or failure to diagnose), and medication errors.  

This area of the law is particularly complex.  If you suspect that you have been the victim of medical malpractice, contact us as soon as possible.  Quick action is crucial to protecting your rights.  


Nursing Home Abuse

Elderly residents are among the most vulnerable members of our society.  According to the National Center of Elder Abuse, senior abuse and neglect can take many forms, including:  malnutrition, dehydration, falls, poor hygiene, poor medical services, assault, and sexual assault.  

Your loved ones deserve to be protected.  We will passionately pursue every elder abuse action with vigor and a great sense of personal involvement.  


Pedestrian Accidents

Most of us share the roads with motorists as a pedestrian from time to time, either crossing the street to enter a restaurant, walking across a parking lot, or jogging around your neighborhood.  Pedestrians have zero protection from impact. For that reason, injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents can be catastrophic, and the cost of medical care and lost income can be exorbitant.  

We will help you stay one step ahead of the insurance company.  This does not mean accepting a lowball settlement just to resolve your claim quickly, and it also does not mean pursuing litigation if it is not necessary.   What it does mean is doing what is right for you!

Defective Products

Companies are sometimes not as careful as they should be when bringing products (like home appliances, furniture, electronics, beauty products, and more) to the market.  When a defective product causes an accident, many different parties in the distribution chain may be liable, such as the designer and manufacturer, the installation company, distributor and the retailer.

You may be uncertain as to the validity of your potential claim, who is responsible, and how to address the situation.  These are all questions and issues that we can help you. resolve. We will do everything possible to see that you deserve the compensation you deserve.  


Trucking Accident 

Tractor-trailers and commercial trucks are the largest vehicles on the road and inherently more dangerous than other vehicles.  Just like any other vehicle accident, failing to pay attention, overcorrecting steering, speeding, and distracted driving can cause a wreck. Poor maintenance and defective parts may also cause a truck accident.  

Truck drivers and the companies they work for have a higher duty of care than private drivers.  The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) oversees the trucking industry in the US.  It is important to understand how their rules and guidelines may impact your case.
