Brain and Spinal Cord Injury

Serious trauma may cause an injury to the brain or spinal cord.  This type of injury may be catastrophic for the injured person and his or her family.  An impact can cause bruising and swelling of the brain, and, in some cases, the impact will be significant enough to tear blood vessels in the brain, causing intracranial bleeding  In addition, trauma could cause injury to the spinal cord resulting in partial or complete paralysis.

Drug Injury

Drug companies sometimes cut corners in the development and research of medications.  The corporation may rush a promising drug to market in order to begin to earn profit from it in a way that does not fully examine the risks to patients.  In addition, companies may market the drug for additional uses which have not been evaluated.  Serious injury or death may result.  The Dan Pruitt Law firm can investigate the drug company to determine whether a dangerous drug caused injury or death to your loved one and then seek justice if the facts support liability.

Defective Products

Every year thousands of products are found to be defective or unsafe and must be recalled by either the manufacturer or a government agency. The reasons necessitating a recall can result from a flaw in the product’s design, a manufacturing mistake, contamination of foods and/or materials used in the product, or an unseen risk which presents itself after the product has been on the market for months or even years. The Dan Pruitt Law Firm will help you through the complicated legal process and fight to obtain compensation for your injuries.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

When a Nursing Home is licensed, the nursing home corporation makes a promise to the state and to future residents to provide proper care.  Often, however, the nursing home fails to hire adequate staffing, to train their staff, or to supervise their staff.  The result is serious injury or death.  Signs and symptoms of neglect and abuse may include pressure sores, medication errors, medication overdose, broken bones, multiple falls, malnutrition, dehydration, and unexplained death. Dan Pruitt Law Firm holds nursing homes responsible for neglect and abuse. For more information about South Carolina nursing home abuse and neglect, visit our Nursing Home Neglect page.

Motorcycle Accidents

Cruising down the Carolina highways with nothing but the open road and distant mountain range before you—this is the beauty of riding a motorcycle on Carolina’s roads, highways, and interstates.

If you’ve been injured in a Carolina motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence, let the Dan Pruitt Law Firm help you get the compensation allowed by law for your injuries and suffering.

Premises Liability

Premises liability cases involve injuries received while on someone else’s property. Property owners and businesses have a duty to maintain a safe property for customers, pedestrians, and other visitors and effectively warn them of possible dangers.  When a visitor to a property suffers a preventable injury, the law of premises liability determines the responsibility of the property owner or manager; the law applies both to residences and places of business. If the landowner failed to follow the rules and was negligent, then the Dan Pruitt Law Firm can seek justice for those injured and harmed by this neglect.
