How can a personal injury lawyer help me?

Following an accident, you may have many questions about what to do next, what your rights are and how to effectively pursue those rights. People who seem to have your best interests in mind may approach you, including insurance adjusters and attorneys for the person responsible for your accident. Will you know what to say to them? Will you know how to judge whether their offers are fair and sufficient?

Accidents and injuries happen every day, and you may think that yours is something you can handle on your own. However, just as you rely on a medical professional to guide you in the steps of your physical recovery, you will certainly benefit from the trained and experienced guidance of a legal advocate for any issues where your rights are on the line.

James Brown’s contested will and estate

The estate of South Carolina native son and “Godfather of Soul” James Brown has been in a legal quagmire for more than 11 years. Since his death on Christmas Day 2006, Brown’s estate has not been settled due to a slew of lawsuits and constant bickering among his surviving children, grandchildren and widow.

Although Brown had a will with a bulk of the estate going toward a trust to distribute scholarships for children in South Carolina and Georgia, members of his family wanted it overturned. They claimed that Brown’s drug problems prevented him from making good decisions about his estate.

Drunk driving has serious consequences for college students

If you’ve had one too many alcoholic beverages, it’s never a good thing to get behind the wheel and drive a car. This goes for everyone, but if you’re a college student, a driving under the influence (DUI) charge may have additional serious consequences on your future.

A DUI may ruin what you perceived as an ideal college life of living in the dorm, going to classes, attending on-campus activities and hanging out with your friends. College years are often the first time students are away from home, and on their own. Young adulthood includes a bit of experimentation such as drinking alcohol.
