Beaufort, SC Personal Injury Attorneys


If you have been injured by another party, whether at work, in a store, at a medical office, out in your community or elsewhere, that person’s insurance company may lull you into a sense that you are being taken care of. However, that is rarely the case. Insurance companies want to pay you as little as possible — or to avoid paying you anything at all.  If you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, our team of Beaufort personal injury attorneys always offers a free consultation to explain your rights.

Since 1922, our clients have leaned on the experience of Harvey & Battey, P.A. to handle their personal injury cases from negligence in their workplace, neighborhood or community.

Our attorneys are capable of handling every type of personal injury case, including:

If you have been injured, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. Our personal injury lawyers will act immediately to protect your rights and gather the evidence we need to resolve your case by obtaining the full compensation which is rightfully yours. We will settle your case if that is in your best interests. However, our lawyers are willing and able to take your case to trial and through appeal, if legally appropriate.

Our experienced team of South Carolina personal injury attorneys include William B. Harvey III, Thomas A. Holloway, J. Samuel Scoville, and Austin Blake.

Common Personal Injury Questions:

Q: I had a car accident that was the other driver’s fault and I have a damaged car, medical bills and lost time from work. I don’t want to sue anyone but how can I get my lost money back?

A: Most personal injury cases like yours do not involve a lawsuit. Your lawyer can make a claim to the other driver’s car insurance company and most times the matter is resolved quickly without court intervention. Contact us for an appointment so we can discuss how we can help.

Q: How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in South Carolina?

A: In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is three years. This means that you must file your claim for an injury within three years of the accident. 

Q: Can you sue for pain and suffering in South Carolina?

A: If you’ve been personally injured, you may experience physical pain or emotional suffering, which gets placed in the non-economic or nonpecuniary damage category under South Carolina law. As the victim, you can seek pain and suffering as a form of recoverable damages from the person or entity that caused your injuries, and your attorney can assign value to them for your claim or lawsuit. We recommend having an initial consultation with our experienced team of personal injury attorneys to find out more about your specific case.
