Financial Recovery Based on Your Myrtle Beach Personal Injury
You may be able to hold the negligent party who caused your accident and injuries liable by recovering financial compensation for the losses you incurred, including non-economic losses. This is possible through a liability insurance claim or civil lawsuit.
To help prove your case, the team at Hammack Law Firm will gather evidence to document your damages and the value of your claim. This will vary from case to case, depending on how your injuries occurred, their severity, your required treatment, and whether you have lasting effects.
Some common recoverable damages after a Myrtle Beach personal injury include:
- Current and future medical treatment
- Ongoing care and support costs for lasting injuries
- Lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning ability for long-term impairments
- Property damage, such as damage to your car in a crash
- Pain and suffering
- Other intangible damages

Read What Past Clients Say About Us
Our previous clients recommend us frequently to family and friends and overwhelmingly provide positive testimonials and reviews. Consider these comments from recent client Maio Russel:
“Definitely one of the best accident attorneys around! Would recommend to anyone facing injuries from the result of an accident. Previous insurance company litigation makes Mr. Hammack a very well-informed litigator when going against the insurance companies trying to minimize their loss. Be sure to contact Paul before contacting the insurance company, as they only care about their interests, not the injured. Please note my 5-star recommendation. Thanks for reading.”
In addition to providing complimentary consultations, our personal injury attorneys work based on contingency fees. In other words, we do not charge anything up front. We only bill for fees when we recover money damages in your case.

Do I Have a Valid Personal Injury Claim in Myrtle Beach?
Under South Carolina’s negligence laws, you may have a personal injury case any time that someone else’s actions cause your injuries, whether through carelessness, recklessness, or an intentional act. Some common examples of personal injury accidents include:
- Car crashes
- Truck collisions
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls
- Other fall accidents
- Boat collisions and injuries
- Construction accidents
- Dog bites and other attacks

Any time a personal injury leads to death, we may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of the victim’s survivors, too.
Proving Negligence on Your Behalf
Winning a personal injury case in Myrtle Beach requires us to show that negligence occurred, and the defendant is liable. Therefore, we will need evidence that proves:
- The defendant had an obligation to behave a certain way for your safety
- They failed to do so
- This led to an accident and your injuries
- You suffered financial, physical, and/or psychological damages
The team at Hammack Law Firm files insurance claims and lawsuits on behalf of our clients. While we can often negotiate a settlement in personal injury cases without suing, it may be necessary under certain circumstances. South Carolina usually allows up to three years after an incident to file a lawsuit under S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530.
We like to get started as quickly as possible to build a stronger case and hopefully recover money damages for you sooner. The sooner we can settle your case and get you back to spending time with your loved ones, the better.
