Charleston Serious Injury Lawyers
Handling Cases for the Catastrophically Injured in South Carolina
Any accident can leave a victim injured, but when those injuries are severe enough that the victim cannot live their life as they once did, it is important to seek legal help. Serious or catastrophic injuries can have long reaching consequences on one’s everyday life, making it impossible for the injured person to go back to work or enjoy the things they once did. Furthermore, those who have been seriously injured often require expensive medical and rehabilitative care, modifications to their living space, in-home assistance, therapy, and much more.
Sanders Law Firm, LLC understands the toll these injuries can have on you and your family. We will work diligently to seek the full and fair compensation you need to move forward with your life. Call us today at (843) 573-8828 to schedule a free consultation.
Serious Injury Cases We Handle
Any injury that results in serious financial, emotional, or physical hardships for the victim and their loved ones can be deemed “catastrophic.”
Examples of serious injury cases our lawyers routinely handle include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Injuries to the spine or neck
- Paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia
- Hearing or vision loss
- Serious burns
- Crushed or amputated limbs
- Multiple broken bones
- Injuries to internal organs and soft tissues
The above injuries often require ongoing and extensive medical attention which can be extremely expensive, especially when the victim is unable to return to work due to their injuries. Our Charleston serious injury attorneys are dedicated to fighting for full and fair compensation that takes the cost of future care and the terrible losses a victim has suffered into account. We work hard to build a strong claim based on your unique circumstances and will fight lowball offers from the insurance company, even taking them to court when they refuse to pay you all you need to move forward with your life.

The Statute of Limitations in South Carolina
If you believe you have suffered a serious injury due to the negligent actions of another, it is important you contact Sanders Law Firm, LLC as soon as possible. Under S.C. Code Ann. section 15-3-530, victims have three years from the date of their injury to file a claim. If a lawsuit is not filed within that time limit, the victim may lose their right to file a claim in the future.
Though three years may seem like a long time, understand that the sooner our attorneys can get to work, the stronger your case will be. Memories can fade, evidence can be lost, and documents can be destroyed. By contacting our firm as soon as you are able, we can get to work on gathering the information needed to build a strong claim on your behalf and increase your chances of receiving the compensation you need.
