Yarborough Applegate is my "go-to" firm when I associate co-counsel in complex and catastrophic cases. They are honest, aggressive and possess the knowledge and resources to outwork their adversaries and deliver superior results. They work every case as if it is going to trial and, as a result, most of them settle favorably for our clients. I value them as trusted co-counsel and friends.Owner, Clark Law Firm, Sumter, SC John Clark
Douglas fought hard for me every step of the way. He turned down several low-ball offers and pushed my case right up to a trial. Douglas and his team turned a horrible experience and injury that I suffered into a positive result. I can’t say enough good things.Helene S.
When I got in a wreck the doctor told me I needed urgent surgery or I could be paralyzed. The cost was over a hundred thousand dollars, and I didn’t have insurance. David Yarborough made arrangements so that I could get the needed surgery by assuring the doctor that he would win my case. Then he won a settlement against the at-fault driver that covered all of the costs of the surgery, all of my lost wages, and pain and suffering. Thank you, Yarborough Applegate.Lamont B.

We still stay in touch to this day, and we are so thankful for all his help.Jessica R.
Beyond helping our clients recover well-deserved compensation for their injuries, our cases have prompted sweeping cross-industry safety improvements—the kinds of reforms that can prevent countless instances of future harm.
Settlement for a missed pediatric brain tumor includes corporate changes for Medquest facilities nationwide to reduce MRI and CT scan margin of error.
Trucking case settlement prompts cell phone policy change for a large manufacturer and sets the stage for other large trucking companies to follow suit.
This case involved the tragic (and preventable) choking death of our client’s elderly mother with dementia at a nursing home. In addition to a significant monetary settlement, with the help of experts we developed a high-quality, professional training video that the large national nursing home corporation was required to use in all future training to prevent similar choking deaths from happening again.
After a woman ingested a metal wire embedded in her dish at Outback Steakhouse, a jury verdict leads to a safety change across the entire Bloomin’ Brands family of restaurants, protecting customers worldwide.
We have litigated numerous dram shop cases against bars and restaurants for violating the standards of safe alcohol service. On several occasions, our settlements in those cases have gone beyond financial recovery for our clients. For example, we have required bars to implement additional training programs and policies to prevent reoccurance, and required servers of alcohol to undergo “Responsible Alcohol Service” training by nationally recognized, third-party providers.
We’re advocates for the underdog, not afraid to stand up to corporations in our pursuit to level the playing field for individuals who have suffered a loss.
