Hurt in a crash? We’ll help you move forward

If you or a loved one was in a car accident, we know how drastically your life can change in an instant. Accidents can cause serious injuries ranging from broken bones to internal bleeding to traumatic brain injuries. You may have even lost a loved one due to another driver’s negligence.

Without warning, an accident can derail your life. You need legal help to get things back on track. Turn to Matthews & Megna to fight for the financial compensation you need.

To us, you’re a real person in need of real help to deal with your auto accident. You may be unable to work while recovering from your injury. Medical bills and other expenses can add up fast. Pursuing compensation after your accident can help pay those bills and provide you with peace of mind.

Insurance companies are supposed to pay for the cost of an accident. Unfortunately, they too often see an injured person as an opportunity to save money. They may offer you a “low-ball” settlement that only covers the short-term cost of your accident, not the long-term expenses years after your crash. With us on your side, you can fight for the full amount of compensation you need.

At Matthews & Megna, we’ve been advocating for hardworking South Carolinians for over two decades. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, contact us today. Call (803) 799-1700 or reach out online for your free case evaluation.

Motorcycle Accidents

Thousands of bikers take to the open road throughout the Palmetto State and enjoy the beautiful weather. Unfortunately, they’re also some of the most vulnerable people on the road in the event of an accident. Without the body of an enclosed vehicle protecting them, they can be severely injured or killed in collisions with trucks and passenger cars.

Unfortunately, for many bikers, the accident itself is just the beginning of their troubles. Insurance companies don’t treat motorcyclists well. They may think you’re just an irresponsible thrill-seeeker – even though we know most bikers are safe, responsible operators. They may try to blame you for the accident or deny your claim because you assumed the risk of an injury.

You don’t have to face that battle alone. At Matthews & Megna, we’re proud to advocate for motorcycle riders injured by the negligence of motorists and truckers. If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, give us a call today.

Truck Accidents

South Carolina is home to six interstate highways and over a dozen rural routes, all of which see plenty of truck traffic every day. Most days, motorists don’t pay much attention to the big rigs on those roads – until there’s a collision. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and collisions involving those vehicles can lead to devastating injuries.

Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Speeding Truckers
  • Distracted/Texting Drivers
  • Asleep-at-the-Wheel Truckers
  • Poorly Maintained Trucks
  • Overloaded and Improperly Loaded Vehicles

Whatever the cause of your accident, you’ll need legal help. Truck accident cases are almost always high-stakes cases, and the trucking company – and their insurers – will fight hard to reduce or deny your claim. Without a tough attorney on your side, it’s you against the trucking company. With us advocating for you, you’ll be able to fight for the compensation you need to move on.
