We help restore justice to victims of injury and negligence in the Columbia area, managing cases such as:
There’s almost nothing as emotionally distressing to a family as a birth injury. When a complex legal process and staggering medical bills are added to the equation, it can feel overwhelming. JJS attorneys have dedicated their careers to seeking justice and compensation for families affected by birth injury. If your child has been harmed during the birthing process, we’ll fight for the compensation you deserve and for an improved quality of life for your child.
A child diagnosed with cerebral palsy can require a lifetime of care and expenses — all of which take an emotional toll on the family. And when you suspect that medical malpractice caused your child’s condition, it’s especially heartbreaking. If it can be proven that a doctor’s negligence caused your child’s condition, you are entitled to compensation for your future and current expenses as well as non-tangible losses and damages. We will help you fight for your family’s future.
South Carolina has no statute of limitations for any felony sex crime, which means that if you or a loved one is a survivor of sexual abuse, assault or misconduct, it’s never too late to come forward. As trusted confidants, we’re here to advocate for your rights and the compensation you deserve, while protecting your privacy and safety as our first priority. As recognized leaders in personal injury law, our team has helped thousands of survivors of sexual abuse — including in past high-profile cases against Catholic Church clergy and former Penn State University football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
Any kind of sexual misconduct is reprehensible, yet the persistent, malignant abuse perpetrated by religious organizations against vulnerable members is particularly odious. We understand just how incredibly difficult it can be to stand up to these religious groups, particularly given their reputation of secrecy and suppression around instances of abuse. Our team is here to listen and give a voice to those harmed by the church.
Our experienced attorneys are devoted advocates for those who have been injured by the very medical professionals they trusted to help them. The legal team and in-house medical experts of JJS have years of experience in high-profile cases, which have led to multimillion-dollar verdicts and outstanding reviews from past clients. If you’ve been a victim of medical negligence, you deserve to understand your rights and pursue action if you choose to do so.
Military service members who have been harmed by negligent medical practices deserve the right to argue for compensation — and we can help. Our team helps vulnerable victims injured by military doctors decide how best to move forward with their cases and their lives. We will fight hard for your right to seek justice.
