Helping Victims of Personal Injury in Charleston and North Charleston
Statistics show that most of us will be involved in more than one car accident during our lives. But when it happens to you, it’s not something you ever expected. Knowing what to do or how to act can be overwhelming. You know the accident wasn’t your fault, but how do you go about holding the other driver liable for your injuries? Do you call your own insurance company or the other driver’s? Talking to the insurance company is a strange experience. They may seem nice and even offer a quick settlement, or they might take a very businesslike approach, asking you a series of questions, recording your answers, and quickly putting you on guard that they aren’t on your side. The insurance company isn’t your friend, even when they are acting like it. If you don’t have an attorney representing you, any amount they offer you is going to be far less than the full value of your claim. That’s just the way it is.
Gus Anastopoulo will intervene on your behalf and take over all communications with the insurance company, the other driver, and their lawyers. Gus will guide you toward getting the medical treatment you need to deal with your injuries, including finding doctors and therapists who will treat you with no upfront costs while your case is pending. While you are working on getting better and putting your life back together, Gus is building your case so when the time is right, he can negotiate a maximum settlement with the insurance company. If we can’t come together on issues like liability or damages, our firm is fully prepared to take your case into the courtroom and try it before a judge and jury to get a favorable verdict that meets your needs.
Our Charleston injury lawyers handle car accidents, tractor-trailer truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and moped accidents. Gus is particularly interested in helping victims of drunk drivers recover compensation not only from the driver who chose to drive drunk and cause an accident but also from the bar that overserved a visibly intoxicated person and then sent them off into the night with no care or responsibility toward others on the road. Not every law firm takes the extra step of bringing cases against the bars or shops that served or sold to a minor or a drunk in violation of the law. The Gus Anastopoulo Law Firm also pursues punitive damages in appropriate cases as well to hold bad actors accountable when their actions are especially reckless. Gus Anastopoulo takes these extra steps to help victims and their families achieve not only compensation but justice and closure.
Helping People Charged With DUI, Drugs, and Burglary Offenses in Charleston
Let’s hope your first encounter with the criminal justice system is the last. The Gus Anastopoulo Law Firm works with young people and students at the College of Charleston who may have made a mistake in judgment or just been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and now they find themselves entangled in a criminal matter. It’s important not to let the situation overwhelm you or intimidate you. You have certain rights when you are accused of a crime, and just because you got arrested for something, your life is far from over. Gus Anastopoulo will be at your side immediately making sure your rights are protected and that you are positioned for a positive outcome in your case.
The police and prosecutors might try to make you think their case against you is already complete and that your best chance is to confess your guilt and beg for mercy. In reality, they might have pressed charges that are more serious than what they can actually prove, hoping you’ll plead guilty to a lesser offense. They might also have mistaken the facts and arrested the wrong person or made an arrest where no crime was actually committed. Law enforcement officers, for the most part, are trained experts in the law and criminal procedure, but that doesn’t mean they don’t make mistakes sometimes or even press charges they know won’t stick. With Gus Anastopoulo at your side, you’ll get honest advice about your situation so you can make rational decisions in your best interest based on facts and not fear. Plus, you’ll have a skilled litigator representing you whose goal is to make sure you get the best possible disposition of your case.
If you have been charged with DUI, drug possession, burglary or other felony or misdemeanor offenses in Charleston, call the Gus Anastopoulo Law Firm and talk to your lawyer before you talk to anybody else.
