Protecting the Rights of Injured Victims in Orangeburg County
Imagine, for a moment, that you are traveling by car to someplace ordinary – such as the grocery store. All of a sudden, a speeding motorist approaches you rapidly across an intersection and crashes into your vehicle. There is no time to move. There is nowhere to go. In a matter of seconds, your life can change dramatically. A personal injury can occur in this or in any number of other ways, and it can alter life as you know it forever.
There are a variety of injuries that can be described under the term “personal injury.” At Chappell, Arden, P.A. & Smith, we handle the following types of claims including but not limited to:
Birth Injury. The times during labor, birth, and just after delivery are critically important to your baby. An injury during these times can have a life-long impact.
Catastrophic Injury. Any injury that causes a permanent disability falls into this category.
Defective Products. You deserve compensation if you have been injured by any defective product, which includes prescription and over-the-counter drugs, toys, motor vehicle parts, and much more.
Motor Vehicle Accidents. Any accident that involves a motor vehicle, including a car, truck, bus, train – or when a pedestrian is struck – can fall into this category. Injuries can happen instantly, and impact you for a lifetime.
Medical Malpractice. You have a right to expect an excellent standard of care whenever you visit your doctor or undergo a medical procedure. Sadly, preventable medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States.
Nursing Home Abuse. Unfortunately, the most vulnerable are often the victims of abuse and neglect.
Slip and Fall Accidents. This type of accident can happen anywhere – at a private home, a municipal location, or a business.
Work Injury. If you are injured at work you may be eligible to claim Workers’ Compensation benefits.
Wrongful Death. We can uphold your rights to compensation if a loved one has been fatally injured because of negligence or wrongdoing.
You Have a Right to Compensation
If you have been injured because of someone’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to recover all of your costs, and more. Your compensation should cover the costs of everything from your initial consultation with your doctor, to all of the costs incurred for the duration of your injury – even if that means lifelong care. Your financial recovery may include:
- Medical consultation
- Medical treatment
- Psychological therapy
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Travel to and from medical appointments
- Past lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Property loss
- Home care
- Home modification if necessary
- Punitive damages, if gross negligence was involved
