When an auto accident happens unexpectedly, anyone can become a victim. One moment you're commuting back home after a long day at the office. The next, your car is totaled, and you're injured in the hospital due to another person's negligence. It's not fair, but it happens every day. Unlike the irresponsible party who caused the accident, personal injury victims often suffer the most in auto accidents. They have to worry about lost days at work, the long road to recovery, and the inability to provide for their family. Sadly, many people injured in car accidents don't have the luxury of worrying about bills because they're fighting for life in the emergency room.
And while modern cars come equipped with safety features like blind spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts, motor vehicle accidents are still a huge problem in South Carolina. According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, in 2020, one person was injured every 11 minutes in a car collision. Even worse, one fatal collision was recorded every 9.1 hours.
Unfortunately, victims of auto accident negligence often don't know what to do when another driver hits them. They have questions like:
These same innocent people provide official statements to insurance agencies without knowing the consequences.
However, if you or your loved ones are victims in a car crash, there's good news. Laws in South Carolina mandate that guilty parties must compensate for pain and suffering. But in order to get the compensation you deserve, it's crucial to work with a personal injury attorney in Beaufort, SC. Experienced personal injury lawyers know how to bolster your case by securing witnesses for questioning, obtaining accident scene information, and documenting vehicle damage. If these tasks aren't completed quickly, you are far less likely to receive the compensation you and your family deserve.
Theos Law Firm exists to fight for your rights and to ensure negligent drivers are held responsible for the damage they do to your family. It's really that simple. We aren't afraid to trade blows with selfish insurance agencies. Because, unlike Theos Law Firm, they couldn't care less about your best interests.
Here are just a few reasons why so many hardworking people choose Theos Law Firm:

We have represented clients involved in DUI accidents, truck rollovers, reckless drivers, interstate pileups, rear-end collisions, and even Uber driver crashes. With such extensive experience, our team has the tools and talent to take care of you, regardless of how complicated your case might be.
The recovery process involved with automobile accidents changes with every person we represent. There are dozens of details to account for, from car repairs to insurance questions and everything in between. These small but necessary details aren't easy to accomplish for injured parties. That's why our team goes the extra mile to help cut through the red tape to ensure your medical bills are paid, and your car gets fixed. The less weight you have on your shoulders to worry about, the faster you can focus on recovering.
Unlike other personal injury law firms, our team is 100% committed to protecting your rights, and we're uniquely positioned to do so with decades of combined experience. We offer robust representation for many types of auto accidents, including:
If you have been the victim of an accident listed above, please understand that time is of the essence. There is limited time to seek compensation for your injuries, hospital bills, lost wages, and more. As such, there is only a short time to obtain experienced representation for your personal injury case.
Our team knows that finding the right attorney to represent you is an important choice. Therefore, we believe that an initial consultation is imperative to understand your needs and identify your goals fully. When we sit down with you to learn the nuances of your accident, we'll cover all aspects of South Carolina law pertaining to your case. That way, you're armed with information and have an idea of the next steps our firm will take to represent you.
Remember - the sooner we can dig into the details of your case, the sooner we can pursue your rightful compensation. As seasoned personal injury attorneys, our team specializes in several types of automobile accidents:
Car accidents are a serious problem in South Carolina. If you're an adult, you probably know someone involved in a bad car crash in our state. When you look at the stats, it seems like car accidents are always on the rise. One person was killed every 8.2 hours in a car collision. Even more sobering is that one teen driver is involved in a fatal or injury-causing collision every 1.6 hours. The unfortunate truth is that many people involved in car crashes were hurt due to the other driver's negligence.
Common car crash injuries in South Carolina include:
Car accident victims in South Carolina are often left to pay their medical bills but can't do so because they're too hurt to go to work or take their car in for repair. These life-changing scenarios can snowball into a series of scary events, leaving victims hopeless and unsure where to turn.
Fortunately, a car accident attorney in Beaufort, SC can help you avoid these pitfalls and obtain the money you need to survive. At Theos Law Firm, our team has a deep understanding of the rules that dictate fault in South Carolina. We know that thorough representation is needed to receive maximum compensation, and we're well-prepared to achieve that goal for you.
Our car accident lawyers in South Carolina can recover compensation for injuries and damages:
The moments following the crash are often a blur when you're involved in a car accident. However, per South Carolina law, those on the scene must adhere to legal responsibilities and obligations.
First, try to stop your car and ensure it is positioned safely near the scene of the crash. Then, call 911 to report the accident. While most folks go into full-blown panic mode, you need to stay calm so you can process the situation. If you notice that there are injured people, give them "reasonable assistance." Per South Carolina Code of Laws, that could include transporting hurt people to a hospital or calling an ambulance for them.
If you're in a car crash, you need to be prepared to exchange contact information with other drivers at the accident scene. If the person who caused the collision is present, make sure to get their name, phone number, address, and insurance info. If witnesses are present, get their contact info, too, in case our team needs to obtain their account later.
Next, try to piece together how the car crash happened. This is an appropriate time to take photos of the cars, wreckage, and debris. Ask yourself if you think a vehicle failed to follow the rules of the road, like speeding or failing to stop at a stop sign.
Regardless of how minor your injuries may appear and who may be to blame for the accident, get legal advice from Theos Law Firm first before giving any recorded statements or refusing medical care.
Tractor-trailer and semi-truck crashes are often more complicated than two car crashing. Because these cases are more complex and nuanced, it's imperative that you contact a truck accident attorney in Beaufort, SC to help you through the recovery process and win the compensation you deserve.
After a semi-truck crash, you must take steps quickly to preserve evidence so that the crash may be recreated. In serious semi-truck accidents where people are injured or killed, trucking companies usually send a team of investigators to the accident site immediately. These investigators will do their best to obtain evidence that can hurt you in court or even attempt to hide or destroy evidence. The last thing a trucking company wants is for you to win a settlement against them.
That's especially true since various entities may be liable for your truck accident injury, not just the driver. The trucking company, the trucking manufacturer, and the team responsible for truck maintenance could also be responsible. Additionally, if dangerous or inadequate road conditions factor into your accident, you could actually sue some government departments. For those reasons, it's critical to retain quality representation ASAP after a truck accident in South Carolina.
At Theos Law Firm, our team has experience winning compensation in many types of truck accidents, such as:
As your truck accident lawyer in South Carolina, we work hard to fight for your rights and win your case. In order to do so, our team will:
We'll arrive on-scene to notate skid mark length and the locations of vehicles involved. We will also capture detailed pictures and measurements pertinent to your crash.
Obtaining the trucking company's records and discovering the info they have on the semi-truck driver involved is an important part of our process. We will also secure access to the trucker's driving log notes, which they must maintain according to law.
Like airplanes and helicopters, big rigs have a "black box" that records real-time truck data, like speeds, changes in direction, and brake application.
We'll arrive on-scene to notate skid mark length and the locations of vehicles involved. We will also capture detailed pictures and measurements pertinent to your crash.
Sometimes an expert is needed to digest all the evidence and provide an expert opinion on the cause of the semi-truck collision. When needed, our team will hire such an expert to ensure your case is robust and air-tight.
We will obtain the police's investigation report and any accident photos, measurements, or other documentation taken by officers while investigating your semi-truck crash.
It's imperative to find all the witnesses of your accident and interview them to get recorded statements in a timely manner. Doing otherwise may result in faded memories and inaccurate facts.
Time and again, auto accident victims agree to early settlements provided by insurance companies because the offer seems like a lot. But what if you return to work after recovering from an accident, only for your pain to return?
With adjusters, lawyers, and investigators at their disposal, insurance agencies will do everything in their power to minimize the compensation you deserve. Don't let them pick on you or silence your voice. If you or a loved are victims of a negligent car or truck accident in South Carolina, contact Theos Law Firm today. We have the team, tools, and experience to fight back on your behalf, no matter how complicated your case may seem.

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., will open its newest restaurant in South Carolina next month in an area of Beaufort that’s being invigorated with new retail development and restaurants.
Often known simply as Chipotle, the Newport Beach, California-based chain of fast casual restaurants specializes in bowls, tacos and Mission burritos made to order in front of the customer.
“We are planning to open the first Chipotle in Beaufort in March,” Chipotle spokesperson Sally Evans told the Beaufort Gazette and Island Packet.
Specifically, Chipotle says on its website, a March 6 opening is planned.
The new Chipotle is located in Beaufort Plaza shopping center at the busy intersection of Robert Smalls Parkway and Boundary Street. Its address is 21 Robert Smalls Parkway but the restaurant fronts Boundary Street and is across from Walgreens.
It will have a drive-through for pickup of digital orders, Evans said.
The Chipotle will be the second in Beaufort County — the other is at Bluffton’s first Tanger Outlet Mall at 1250 Fording Island Road — and the 36th in South Carolina.
As of Dec. 31, Evans said, Chipotle had nearly 3,200 restaurants nationwide. It is the only restaurant company of its size that owns and operates all its restaurants.
Chipotle is hiring in Beaufort, Evans said. On average, there are 25 jobs per restaurant that carry competitive benefits including a crew bonus, a debt-free college degree program (including English as a second language) and access to mental healthcare for employees and families.
Several new businesses have opened at Beaufort Plaza, which is owned by Paul Trask, following the completion of a $33 million redevelopment of Boundary Street in 2018 to make one of the city’s main thoroughfares more welcoming while encouraging development.
In July, a long-awaited Publix grocery store opened. The 48,387-square-foot store is located at 33 Robert Smalls Parkway. Burkes HomeCentric, a discount home goods retailer, also is open for business.
Five Guys, known for its hand-crafted burgers, is going up across from McDonald’s. And a Lowcountry Urgent Care is planned next to Chipotle.
The new facilities are joining existing tenants Burkes Outlet, Staples, Big Lots, Aaron’s appliance and electronics store and a U.S. Post Office.

More than 75,000 votes were cast in the third round of voting in our quest to find the best pizza in Beaufort County, and we are down to two finalists.
The winner will be named just in time for National Pi Day (March 14 or 3/14), which many celebrate by having a slice of pizza.
Here’s a little bit more about the two restaurants advancing to the final round:
Mama G’s is the newcomer to Beaufort County, having opened in the spring of 2022 in Moss Creek Village, on the Bluffton side of the bridges to Hilton Head Island.
Glen Grace, who is originally from New Jersey, owns and operates the business with his wife and three adult children. They prepare pizza, calzone and stromboli with fermented pizza dough, which Grace says makes it more flavorful and more digestible.
Pizzas at Mama G’s come in a 12-inch or 18-inch rounds. The menu lists a cheese pizza for $14.50 or $22, depending on the size.
Also on the menu: Italian salads, appetizers and Marion’s Gelato.

Local Pie started offering its Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizza at a location on the south end of Hilton Head, and it proved so popular that a second location opened in Old Town Bluffton in 2016.
Chef Lee Lucier is chief operating officer of the Richardson Group, which owns both Local Pie locations along with FISH at Coligny Plaza on Hilton Head. Lucier has long been an advocate for hospitality workers, who are provided with no-cost health insurance at the three restaurants.
The Local Pie website says that Local in the name not only means “the highest quality, regionally-sourced ingredients ... (but) also represents a sense of community.”
Pizzas come in 10-inch or 16-inch rounds. The menu lists a cheese pizza for $9 or $17, depending on the size.
Also on the menu: Starters, salads, calzones and subs. Delivery is available from both locations through Cool Delivery.

If social media has taught us anything, it’s that people have strong feelings about pizza, and they aren’t afraid to share them.
We decided to settle the debate. We asked Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette readers for nominations for the best pizza joint in Beaufort County. Hundreds of responses poured in, and the top 16 nominees were included the first round of voting. Consecutive rounds of voting cut the field in half and in half again.
In the most recent round, Dough Boys Pizza, located at 1 New Orleans Road on Hilton Head, finished third, and La Pizzeria, located at 1460 Fording Island Road, near the Tanger 2 Outlets in Bluffton, finished fourth.
Now, in our final round, the slate is wiped clean, and this is anyone’s game to win.
