South Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer
Accidents are a part of life for anyone in South Carolina, but you may not realize the true nature of the threats to your safety until you review the statistics. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 24 million victims head to the emergency room and another 39.5 million individuals visit a physician for unintentional injuries every year. Victims and their families suffer tremendous losses that affect them physically, financially, and emotionally.

Our Legal Services in Accident Claims
In most personal injury cases, the first step in the legal process is filing a claim with the responsible party’s insurance company. Our attorneys at the Gus Anastopoulo Law Firm will attempt to reach a settlement, but dealing with insurers can be challenging because they are for-profit businesses. We may need to take your case to court if the insurer refuses to pay a fair amount. It is the goal of our personal injury attorneys to ensure you receive the full monetary damages under South Carolina law, including:
- Costs for hospitalization, rehabilitation, surgery, and other medical treatment;
- Lost wages, if you missed work because of your injuries;
- Pain and suffering;
- Scarring and disfigurement;
- Amounts based upon how your injuries affect your quality of life and relationships; and
- Many more.
