According to the CDC, there are more than 2.8 million emergency room visits for traumatic brain injuries each year. Over 837,000 of these are children. While that number is staggering, it doesn’t make a TBI any easier to cope with when it’s happening to you or your family member.
A TBI can result from motor vehicle collisions, sports injuries, violent crimes, bicycle or motorcycle accidents, exposure to toxic chemicals, infections, and more. Additionally, TBIs can sometimes sneak up and go undetected on an MRI or x-ray.
Our attorneys understand how gravely a serious incident like a TBI can affect your family’s life. Our experienced South Carolina traumatic brain injury lawyers are well-equipped to guide you through the complicated legal process and fight for justice.
Accidents involving trucking, semi-trucks, construction vehicles, tractor-trailer rigs, commercial or industrial vehicles, or 18-wheelers can be devastating. Tractor trailer crashes can often be due to their massive size, blind spots, and difficult maneuverability, but it is sometimes the result of a careless driver, poor driver training, speeding, an unbalanced load, mechanical failure, or driver fatigue.
If you or someone you love has been in a serious tractor-trailer wreck, turn to our team of tractor trailer accident attorneys for guidance you can trust. Our lawyers advocate aggressively on behalf of our clients’ rights, and work tirelessly to get results.
Aging is inevitable, and there often comes a time when a family member requires long-term residential care. In that instance, we want our loved ones to be in a safe, caring environment with healthcare professionals who treat people with dignity and respect.
When it comes to nursing homes, the unfortunate reality is that profit is sometimes put above people. Sadly, this vulnerable population can be taken advantage of in a variety of ways. Overlooked medical needs, overt bullying or threats, and accidents that are wrongly attributed to “old age” are all examples of how abuse can occur to people who are not in a position to make their concern heard.
If you suspect elder abuse, negligence, or nursing home abuse, our team of experts wants to help. Our nursing home abuse attorneys are committed to identifying neglect, exposing injustice, and securing compensation on behalf of your loved one.
People in South Carolina occasionally must entrust their well-being to healthcare professionals or hospital systems. In turn, these providers must adhere to a certain standard of care when treating patients. What happens when you or a loved one receives substandard treatment that results in more harm or injury?
When a medical provider makes a critical mistake in treating a patient, the results can be harmful or even life-changing. Medical neglect cases can apply to doctors, surgeons, dentists, chiropractors, nurses, physician’s assistants, pharmacists, hospitals, birthing centers, trauma centers, nursing homes, and others. Proving that the provider deviated from the standard of care is complicated — and that’s where our lawyers can help.
If you or someone you love has been harmed by a preventable medical error, our medical neglect lawyers want to help. Medical professionals are sometimes unwilling to acknowledge serious mistakes — and those errors could range from illegible written prescriptions, to a failure to diagnose, to surgical injuries. Our attorneys help you navigate the legal process and fight diligently to hold the negligent health care provider accountable for the error.
As United States citizens, there are certain rights and protections that every single one of us is guaranteed. Under these laws, each citizen has the right to freedom from discrimination and repression. When those rights are violated, our team of South Carolina civil rights lawyers work to seek justice for victims and their families and to hold accountable the responsible corporations, institutions, and individuals in power.
At MLG, our mission is to amplify the voice of — and provide legal power to — citizens whose civil and personal rights have been violated. Civil rights cases can involve discrimination due to religion, race, sex, familial status, and national origin. Our civil rights attorneys have a range of experience in complex cases, and can develop a comprehensive legal strategy in order to fight for the results you deserve.
Accidents of any kind cause pain, stress, and worry. Sometimes, they result in catastrophic injuries that leave you disabled mentally, physically, or in appearance for an extended period of time or even permanently. Catastrophic injuries can include motor vehicle accidents, product liability injuries, construction injuries, and others.
Not only can these types of injuries cause real physical suffering, but there are often continuing costs and associated damages. If you suffer a long-term or permanently disabling injury — whether it’s caused by an automobile accident or if it happens on the job — MLG catastrophic injury attorneys have the experience needed to guide you through the legal process in the fight for medical costs, lost work wages, pain and suffering, and more.
