Yarborough Applegate’s attorneys have a proven track record of obtaining groundbreaking jury verdicts and settlements for clients in complex cases involving traumatic brain injuries (TBI), medical malpractice, dram shop law, spinal cord injuries, electrocutions, motor vehicle accidents and truck driving accidents, product liability, and more. We fight for victims in Charleston, across the state of South Carolina, and beyond.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can cause permanent impacts to movement, balance, cognition, and emotions.
When you pay an insurance premium, the insurance company is expected to hold up its end of the bargain—not place its own interests ahead of policyholder needs.
Victims of drunk driving accidents and their families can experience overwhelming injuries, loss, and physical and mental stress—all of which should be preventable.
When a parent, spouse, child, or loved one is killed in an accident, the emotional and financial loss a family experiences is sudden and devastating.
In a blink, a car accident can cause fatal injuries and permanent disabilities, leaving victims and families with expensive medical bills and and uncooperative insurance companies.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death on the job, you have the right to file a workplace injury claim to seek medical and monetary benefits.
Verdict for Paralyzed Worker
This verdict was achieved after a two week trial for a 28-year-old construction worker who was paralyzed from the neck down after he was electrocuted and fell eight feet from scaffolding. The power company and its insurers refused to offer anything close to fair compensation to cover this young man's basic needs.
Dram Shop Judgment
A passenger in the car of a drunk driver that was overserved by two bars in Charleston, South Carolina, was awarded a $33.8 million for catastrophic injuries that included a TBI and required lengthy hospitalizations.
Settlement for Missed Pediatric Brain Tumor
Yarborough Applegate secured a $28.5 million settlement for a young man whose life was forever changed when a radiologist failed to identify a malignant tumor on a brain MRI. This settlement includes critical corporate changes by the corporate defendants to help eliminate this type of error in the future.
Securities Fraud Settlement
We secured this settlement on behalf of shareholders who lost money when the national credit card company they had invested in made multiple false statements to the public about their financial results and engaged in fraudulent accounting in order to deceive the investing public.
Settlement for Victims of Tractor-Trailer Crash
