- Bicycle Accidents
Traveling by bicycle has surged in popularity. After all, it’s a green mode of transportation and great exercise. While bicycles and automobiles are supposed to share the road, too often they collide – sometimes with catastrophic results for the bicyclists. We can help you through the confusion and strain that follow a bicycle accident. Respect and compassion are what you will get from our lawyers and staff.
- Birth Injury
The goal of the labor and delivery process is to end up with a healthy baby and mother. But about seven out of 1,000 babies born in this country suffer some type of birth injury in the process. Some of these injuries will affect the child’s physical and cognitive abilities throughout his or her life — and, sadly, many of these injuries could have been avoided if the doctor and other health-care professionals had performed their duties properly. If your child suffered serious injuries during delivery, you can trust our dedicated attorneys to get you the money and benefits you need for a full recovery.

The South Carolina defective products attorneys at Joye Law Firm have over 110 years of combined litigation experience and are committed to helping people who have suffered a life-changing injury because of unsafe products. We can help you get the compensation you deserve if a defective product is to blame for your injuries.
- Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional falls short of the standard of care in the treatment of a patient because the medical professional acts or fails to act, resulting in an injury to the patient. Medical professionals can include doctors, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, surgeons, physician’s assistants, pharmacists and more. In addition to the individual who made the mistake, injured patients can also bring a lawsuit against the hospital, medical practice, clinic, nursing home or other medical institution that employed the at-fault professional.
- Surgical Injuries
Some patients suffer injuries when a surgeon performs an operation on the wrong body part or even on the wrong patient. Surgical errors are still common even when the surgeon operates on the correct patient in the right place, particularly with laparoscopic and bariatric operations. Another common type of surgical error happens when sponges or other instruments are left inside the patient. Malpractice can also occur after surgery when medical personnel fail to properly monitor the patient and provide proper post-operative care.
- Medication Errors
One of the most common forms of medical mistakes, medication errors cause a significant number of injuries and deaths each year. Illegible handwriting and confusing abbreviations sometimes result in medication errors, as can medical professionals’ failure to properly communicate with each other. Another issue is drugs that have similar sounding or appearing names.
- Failure to Diagnose
Failure to properly diagnose a serious condition early when the condition is still treatable leads to many preventable deaths each year. Commonly misdiagnosed illnesses include cancer, heart attacks, appendicitis, strokes and pulmonary embolisms. Sometimes diagnostic errors happen because doctors fail to spend enough time talking to patients about their symptoms, other times they are the result of bad communication among the medical personnel themselves.
- Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are sometimes branded as being rebels who speed and ride recklessly. Insurance companies often use that stereotype to assume that the motorcyclist was at fault. At Joye Law Firm, we know that most motorcycle riders are safe and cautious – often more so than other drivers. Our South Carolina motorcycle accident attorneys are on your side, and we fight for the rights of our clients.
- Nursing Home Abuse
Because nursing home residents are some of society’s most vulnerable individuals, they can be easy targets for abuse and neglect. It is often hard for them to speak up about the mistreatment, either because they are too ill or because they are embarrassed or don’t want to get anyone in trouble. That means it’s very important for their family members and other loved ones to keep close tabs on them and serve as advocates when something goes wrong.
- Premises Liability
Premises liability is the umbrella legal term for lawsuits related to accidents caused by dangerous conditions on someone else’s property. These accidents can happen virtually anywhere and come in a variety of forms, including slip and fall accidents, dog bites, insufficient security, falling merchandise, defective elevators and more. The South Carolina premises liability attorneys at Joye Law Firm have over 110 years of combined litigation experience and are committed to helping people who have suffered a life-changing injury because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. We can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
- Social Security Disability
The federal government’s Social Security disability program provides benefits to people whose health prevents them from performing their old job and who are unable to adapt to any other meaningful type of employment. It can provide crucial assistance to workers who can no longer earn a living. Although the concept might sound simple at first, actually receiving the Social Security disability benefits that you deserve usually requires a drawn-out bureaucratic process, including a lengthy appeals period. That’s why you need the South Carolina Social Security disability lawyers at Joye Law Firm working for you.
- Spinal Cord Injury
At Joye Law Firm, we know how difficult it can be on spinal cord injury victims and their families to cope with the condition. Work is missed. Bills pile up. Insurance companies call and press for a quick settlement of any claims against the party who caused the injury. We want to help you. If you’ve suffered spine or back injury in a South Carolina auto, truck, motorcycle or workplace accident, or as the result of a doctor’s malpractice, you can trust our dedicated attorneys to get you the money and benefits you are entitled to receive.
- Traffic Ticket
Thousands of drivers are cited each year with traffic tickets in South Carolina. The fines imposed for violations can be problematic, but they are rarely the real problem for drivers. Many traffic offenses come with a host of serious collateral consequences. Before making a decision about how best to handle your traffic ticket, you must know the consequences of a conviction. A plea of guilty, nolo contendere, or simply forfeiting your bond counts as a conviction in South Carolina — this can affect your ability to drive and raise your insurance costs.
- Truck Accidents
Trucking companies and their drivers sometimes fail to maintain their equipment like they are required to, resulting in brake failures or other malfunctions that can lead to serious accidents. At Joye Law Firm, we hold trucking companies responsible for demands that result in irresponsible and reckless driving.
- Workers’ Compensation
If you’ve suffered an injury at work, the proven South Carolina workers’ comp attorneys at Joye Law Firm can help you through the bureaucratic process of securing the money and benefits you deserve. Respect, compassion and care are what you can expect from our lawyers and staff. Since 1968 we have helped injured people like you recover not just the money they are entitled to, but also their lives. Let us help you too.
- Wrongful Death

Respect, compassion and care are what you can expect from our lawyers and staff. Since 1968 we have helped bereaved families like yours recover not just the money they are entitled to receive, but also to regain their lives.
