We Get Results


Cameron was hit head-on by an uninsured motorist and luckily had uninsured motorist coverage on his policy. After negotiating through Cameron’s uninsured motorist policy, we were able to win Cameron $50,000 for his facial fracture and multiple contusions suffered in the accident.


Sophia was driving down the Ravenel Bridge one night when a drunk driver came careening down her side of the bridge driving the wrong way. Sophia won her $100,000 claim on the grounds of the Tyger River Doctrine, which states an insurer owes the insured a settlement covered by the policy under “reasonable circumstances”.


Chris was hit on his bike by a negligent driver after the driver failed to yield the right of way at an intersection. Chris tragically lost his foot as a result of the accident and was only covered for up to $50,000 in liability coverage. Even with no initial offers and tendered limits on all his policies, Chris received $325,000 in compensation after our attorneys negotiated a price with his insurance company.
