Charleston Personal Injury Lawyers
Handling Accident Claims Throughout South Carolina
Were you or someone you love hurt/injured because of someone else’s actions, misconduct, or negligence? If so, there is one thing you can do to get answers to your questions, minimize the stress you are experiencing, and recover the costs of your medical bills and other damages: contact a Charleston personal injury attorney right away after being injured.
Quick Action Is The Only Option For Maximum Compensation
Reaching out to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible following an injury is vital. Evidence and witness memory can fade quickly. Insurance companies and opposing parties will quickly seek legal counsel to argue against you. And, without the right guide, you could inadvertently make mistakes that could reduce or eliminate your ability to receive compensation for your injuries. Time is of the essence, and you need to act now in order to maximize your compensation potential. One of our seasoned accident or injury attorneys can help you.

At the Drennan Law Firm, we pride ourselves on our commitment to our injured clients and on helping them get through the legal process as fairly and efficiently as possible. Our Charleston injury lawyers fight for their rights against insurance companies, who are interested only in their profits and bottom lines, not on helping injured people. These companies are not in business to pay out claims and will do everything they can to prevent and minimize paying claims.

- Back or neck injuries
- Ruptured disks
- Broken bones
- Lacerations, road rash or other surface injuries

If you have suffered an injury such as these, your top priority now is to recover as far and as fully as you can. Your attorney’s job is to build a strong case to present to claims adjusters and if necessary, a judge and jury.
Our law firm is dedicated to supporting clients through the full process of recovery — including physical recovery and the pursuit of maximum compensation through a claim or lawsuit. With an experienced, accomplished legal advocate on your side, you can concentrate on healing while our team takes care of your injury claim or lawsuit.
The sooner you have a lawyer representing you, the greater peace of mind you and your family may enjoy. We aim to free you to give all your efforts to getting well. Let us explain how we can help as you proceed toward a “new normal.” We can be your strong advocates while you move head toward a rewarding life once again.
Determining How The Accident Happened
Accident reconstruction is a key component of most personal injury cases. Discovering how a crash or another type of accident occurred can help pinpoint the wrongdoer. Understanding how an injury happened can confirm liability — that is, the responsibility of the offender to compensate the injured.
Drennan Law Firm has much experience working with crash experts and other professionals. These valuable resources help verify both liability and damages. With well-documented evidence, we create trial-worthy, persuasive arguments and presentations.
We will get to the bottom of what caused your injuries and how their impact on your life, and use that knowledge to your benefit.
Calculating The Extent Of The Injuries
Besides determining liability, the other critical task in a personal injury case is to document the seriousness of the injuries and losses. This information will provide a foundation for an effective claim or lawsuit.
When Drennan Law Firm is your personal injury law firm, rest assured we will do the heavy lifting through all stages of documenting your losses. Our years of experience in personal injury law have given us insights and tools that we will use to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. We understand the needs you face such as:
- Lost wage replacement
- Medical care
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ongoing medical treatment, care and evaluation
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Disability accommodations (temporary or permanent)
- Rental or purchase of durable medical equipment such as a wheelchair, lift and other devices
- Personal care attendant (PCA) needs once you return home
- Necessary modification to your home such as and/or purchase of a modified transport vehicle
- Other expenses related to your recovery, such as travel expenses needed for access to appropriate medical treatment and rehabilitation
At Drennan Law Firm, we understand the complexities and concerns that will affect you and your family over time. We aim to lighten the load for each client at the same time that we prepare persuasive arguments on their behalf.
If we represent you, we will take the lead in communicating with your health care providers to obtain and evaluate medical records and prognoses. You will not be overwhelmed chasing paper. Rather, you can focus on getting well. All information we gather may be used to build your injury claim or lawsuit. For example, if your doctor recommends plastic surgery later when your healing is complete, we will be sure to include the necessary costs in your injury claim or lawsuit.
Our law firm staff has access to many resources beyond the legal work we are prepared to do for you. We can advise you and refer you to professionals who facilitate recovery for people injured in accidents.
In Case Of A Fatality
If you are a family member of an accident victim who was killed or is in grave condition and unlikely to survive, please know that we understand the great stresses on your family at this time. We are prepared to bring a compelling wrongful death claim on behalf of qualified survivors. Our legal team extends our condolences. We are skilled at getting the groundwork done in the background during your time of remembrance of your lost loved one. We will gladly share with you how we can lift your burdens, beginning now. There is never a fee for an initial consultation.
Preparing As If For Trial
A great many personal injury cases settle outside of court. However, the results of settlement negotiations often depend on how ready a case is to go to trial if necessary. Our commitment to our clients. We make it clear to all legal opponents and decision makers in our clients’ cases that we can and will go before a judge. Consider our track record of client satisfaction as you decide on a Charleston personal injury lawyer.
