We Stand Up to Liable Parties and Their Insurance Companies in Myrtle Beach
After suffering injuries in a delivery van accident, you may hear directly from the insurance company representing the van owner or driver. An insurance adjuster may try to assure you that you do not need representation and offer a settlement right away. They may also ask you to answer some questions about the collision.
However, it’s crucial to recognize that the other party’s insurance company is not on your side, even if their representatives seem to be cooperative. They could use certain statements you make against you or offer a settlement that does not address the true value of the case, hoping that you will accept to avoid further hassle.
Hiring our firm to represent you means that our delivery van accident attorney will be on your side from start to finish. We do not care what the insurance company wants from the case’s outcome – our only goal is to advocate for compensation that accounts for your damages.

We Must First Prove Negligence According to South Carolina Law
Before we can win any settlement amount for you, our team has to establish another party’s negligence. There may be evidence that the delivery van driver made an error while driving that led to your accident and injuries. For example, they may have been speeding to make their deliveries on time and failed to stop in time to avoid rear-ending your vehicle.
Similarly, if the delivery driver does not have their cargo secured properly, as required in S.C. Ann. § 56-5-4100, this could lead to an accident. Loose cargo can strike other vehicles or cause drivers to swerve in order to avoid the debris, leading to an accident.
It’s worth noting that in many accident cases involving delivery van drivers, the company employing them is also liable. Employers have vicarious liability for their employee’s actions while they are on the clock performing their job duties. Our attorneys will identify if this legal doctrine applies in your case and prepare to hold one or more parties liable for your damages.

Compensation for a Delivery Van Accident in Myrtle Beach
Traffic accidents range from minor to severe, depending on various factors. As such, the amount of compensation you qualify to collect will depend on the unique circumstances of your case, such as:
- Each party’s level of fault
- Damage severity
- Length of the recovery period
- Any long-term damages that occur
We will review these factors and others that pertain to your case to place a fair value on your damages. From there, we can enter negotiations or head to trial with a solid idea of what you could recover from the liable parties.
Recovery of Medical Costs for Treating Your Injuries
After your accident, if you needed emergency care in Myrtle Beach, your medical costs could rise quickly. You could have tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills after several days in the hospital, as well as ongoing medical costs for your care in the future.
If so, we will seek a settlement or judgment to cover all of these costs incurred up to the point of the settlement. In addition, we can seek an estimated amount to cover any medical costs you will have going forward.
Reimbursement for Time Missed at Work While in Recovery
You may end up missing quite a bit of work while you recover from your injuries. If so, you deserve a financial award that reflects the income you were unable to earn.
For someone who cannot earn a living for months or years into the future because of their injuries, a settlement can also cover these losses. Based on the facts of your case, we will account for any estimated wages you will miss out on earning in the future.
Damages for Pain and Suffering
If you will have pain that lingers into the future, as well as a reduction in your quality of life from your injuries, you can receive an award that compensates you for these damages.
We believe strongly in our negotiating skills, which we will put to use for your benefit when seeking a pain and suffering judgment from the insurance company.
