HURT 999 Law Offices of Shane Smith - South Carolina

Firm Overview

We focus on helping injured people throughout South Carolina and the Southeastern states. We only take personal injury cases. This allows us to fully understand South Carolina Personal Injury Law, since we do not have to practice other areas. Our firm is focused on several things: getting our clients the medical care they need (whether this is a chiropractor, physical therapist, medical doctor, orthopedist or any other specialist), finding all of the available insurance coverage, and fighting to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. This includes compensation for medical bills, medical treatment, lost wages, pain, suffering, and disruption of life, and sometimes punitive damages.

While we attempt to settle our clients' cases without filing a lawsuit or going to court, this is sometimes impossible. If the insurance company will not make a fair offer, we will file suit against the insurance company and go to court.

Within the Personal Injury area of law we spend a large amount of our practice in several areas: car accidents, victims of drunk drivers, pedestrian/ crosswalk accidents, wrongful death cases, and brain injured clients.

I have been practicing personal injury law for many years. After working at one of the biggest Personal Injury Firms, I left to start my own firm. After establishing the firm, I focused on personal injury cases. My offices have grown tremendously over the past several years, and as a result I have been able to hire several attorneys with over 35 years combined experience and we have established a reputation as a personal injury law firm that is not afraid to file suit, whether the case is large or small I am constantly working in the best interests of my clients.

Example cases

A recent case that my firm settled was a drunk driving accident. The drunk driver struck the vehicle our clients were riding in. One of our clients suffered a broken arm and required surgery. The second suffered from "soft tissue" injuries, but required epidural steroids shots for continuing pain after chiropractic treatment. Initially the insurance company claimed that their driver had a concussion and was not drunk at the scene. They made offers ignoring the punitive damages portion of the case. We rejected their settlement offer, followed the criminal trial, forwarded all the medical information to the Coweta County Solicitor, talked to their office and made sure that the drunk driving charge was not dropped. We also investigated the history of the drunk driver and found that after our accident, she had received a second drunk driving charge. After finding this information, and after the criminal case, we contacted the insurance company and shortly afterward, the cases settled. One client received the insurance policy limits, and the other case settled for very close to the insurance policy limits. Our clients were very happy that we fully investigated the case since for one, the settlement was over 3 times what was offered in the beginning.
