  11. 11. Motor Vehicle Accidents A serious accident can change your entire life in a matter of seconds.

Our founding attorney, Paul Uricchio, represented persons seriously injured in automobile, motorcycle, and trucking accidents for over 40 years.

  21. 21. Personal Injury: Premises Liability The legal theory of “premises liability” holds owners and occupiers of property legally responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on that property. The types of incidents that give rise to premises liability claims can range from a slip and fall on a public sidewalk to an injury suffered on an amusement park ride.
  22. 22. Personal Injury: Premises Liability The liability of owners and occupiers of property will vary depending on the legal rules and principles in place in the state where the premises liability injury occurred. In some states, the court will focus on the status of the injured visitor in determining the liability of the owner or occupier. In other states, the focus will be on the condition of the property and the activities of both the owner and visitor. The Uricchio Law Firm will investigate any claim based on premise liability. If you or someone you love has suffered due to another’s neglect, contact us for a free case evaluation at 843.795.9300.
  23. 23. Personal Injury: Products Liability An individual who has been injured using a product may have the right to pursue a claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler, store, or individual that sold the defective product. In such cases, the injured party may be able to collect compensation for their injuries. Conditions that may cause an individual to be injured include: • • • The product was improperly manufactured The product may have been improperly designed Absence of proper warning about the use of the product. If you feel that you may have a product liability claim contact our office for a free case evaluation.
  24. 24. Personal Injury: Sexual Assault Each year, millions of people are victimized by violent crime. Unfortunately, most sexual abuse crimes are committed by someone the victim knows such as a school teacher, minister, medical provider, relative, or family friend. In most cases, the victim feels helpless and is too afraid or embarrassed to come forward. The Uricchio Law Firm is equipped with the knowledge and resources to help assist victims and their families pursue justice, improve public safety, and seek monetary compensation. If you feel that you or someone you know may be a victim of sexual abuse, contact our office at 843.795.9300 so that we can help assist you through this traumatic experience.
  25. 25. Personal Injury: Animal Attacks Animal attacks can result in serious and, at times, permanent injuries. The most common type of animal attack is a dog bite. Unfortunately, most dog bite victims are children. It is not uncommon in today’s society for dog owners to train their dogs to be overly aggressive for the purposes of protection and even dog fighting. Often, young children cannot tell the difference between what looks like a playful dog and an aggressive one. In some cases the individual has done nothing to provoke the attack.
  26. 26. Personal Injury: Animal Attacks If ever attacked by an animal you should: • • • • • • • • • Seek medical attention immediately Get the name and contact information of the animal’s owner Get the name and contact information of any eye witnesses Report the attack to the police Request a copy of the police report Take photographs of the animal and the location where the incident occurred Take photographs of the injuries Do not accept any settlement or admit fault with the owner’s insurance company Save any clothing damaged by the animal
  27. 27. Personal Injury: Workplace Accidents Many employees in South Carolina are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage pays for medical care and rehabilitation therapy after a workplace accident. It can also provide compensation for lost wages and any disability resulting from the accident.
  28. 28. Personal Injury: Workplace Accidents However, your employer’s compensation insurance company may try to minimize the extent of your workplace injury. Without the help of a workers’ compensation attorney, you may not get the medical care and benefits you deserve. Uricchio Law Firm is knowledgeable in this complex area of the law and work tenaciously to get our clients the medical care and benefits they deserve. If we determine that your initial medical evaluation did not fully identify the extent of your injury, we can arrange for you to receive a second medical opinion.
  29. 29. Personal Injury: Third-Party Claims If your injuries were caused by a third party, such as a contractor or equipment supplier, or you were injured in a vehicle accident while on the job, you may have a thirdparty claim. This can enable you to obtain compensation in excess of what you get from the workers’ compensation system — including compensation for pain and suffering. Uricchio Law Firm successfully handled a large number of third-party claims, including many involving catastrophic injuries. We will work to maximize the compensation you receive from all sources. If you have suffered a serious injury, Uricchio Law Firm will advocate on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve. Contact us today or call for a free consultation.
