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 Jedburg, 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.

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 Jedburg, 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 Jedburg, 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.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Located at the corner of Berlin Myers Parkway and Highway 78, a 57-acre multi-use property will bring new development to the Summerville area by early 2025.
The property, named Sawmill, will include 474 multi-family apartment units, offices, restaurants, hotels, stores, banks, outdoor spaces and a 40,000-square-foot Roper St. Francis facility.
Summerville spokesperson Mary Edwards said the task to get the development started was a long process.
“It’s something that people have been wanting for a long time, and council has really supported the developers, too. It’s a big deal for us; I mean, it’s a new big development that’s coming to our area,” Edwards said. “It’s something that’s needed. It’s something that the public has really wanted.”
The developers, Lee & Associates, said in a news release that “a new walkable community designed to better connect residents with the fun they want and services they need will be anchored by a major healthcare system.”
Although not everyone in the area is excited about the new development. Some members of the Summerville community shared their concerns on a Facebook post with over 400 comments mentioning traffic problems, school enrollment and housing availability.
Located near the development, the Spinx gas station may see increased traffic with the upcoming construction. Employee Rona Emons, shared her concerns.
“I don’t think we can really handle it because this road is already always backed up; it’s already hard to get in and out of the store,” she said. “I think that’s going to make it a lot worse unless they try to widen the road somehow, which I don’t know how they can do that. But yeah, it’s going to cause a lot of congestion in this area.”
In response to the concerns, Edwards said the city and developers studied research before deciding if the project was appropriate for the area.
“The town is growing really fast,” Edwards said. “So, we know that people want to come here, and they want to experience the area. We want to be able to provide these types of options for people when they come.”
Construction on the health care facility and multi-family apartment units will begin in early 2023.
“I’m kind of excited,” Emons said. “I’d like to get out. You know, it’d be nice to see something new in this area. So yeah, I’m looking forward to it in some ways, and otherwise, I’m kind of a little leery of it.”
Overall, the project is expected to cost $200 million.

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — For months, Jedburg residents have fought to be heard by developers and Berkeley County.
They were against a proposed development in their neighborhood.
The proposed development came as Berkeley County Council passed a moratorium to control growth.
Residents wanted to see this moratorium in effect to keep developers from building homes near their property.
"Pulte is not going to be here. They're not going to live in this area. They're going to take their profits back to Atlanta. We're going to have to deal with this on a daily basis. I'm retired, I don't want to move. And so, we decided to fight," said Bill Shelton, a retired resident in the Jedburg community.

Ongoing efforts made by the Jedburg and New Hope communities paid off Monday night as Berkeley County Council denied lifting the moratorium for Pulte Homes.
The homebuilder proposed the Sandy Run development, which would have been 465 homes, a school and commercial business on Jedburg Road.
"Jedburg Road has become a major corridor. The traffic is so heavy, it's become hazardous, and people are literally frightened to drive on that road making left turns into the driveway. That's how hazardous it is. They're talking about adding 1,000 cars onto that road. It was just not compatible," Shelton said.
Neighbors of the proposed development met several times this year. They shared concerns about increased traffic, flooding, privacy intrusions and more.
Previous Coverage: Jedburg resident wants to be heard by developers & Berkeley County
"I think a lot of that stood out to be the traffic congestion that areas a lot of growth going on in that area. A lot of the area is also wetlands as well. So trying to preserve the green space in that area. The zoning of that area is flex 1, so it's a lot of a lot of larger lot sizes, and that potential development would have a lot of smaller houses on smaller lots. So to protect the integrity of that community and keep those lot sizes larger," said Phillip Obie II, councilman for District 3.
"I think they saw the passion and accounting. I think they saw the lengths we were willing to go to make our voices heard. And I think they realized that we were organized, we were going to be a force to be dealt with. And if we didn't get our voices heard, we were going to keep fighting," Shelton said.
Neighbors say they met with Pulte Homes to talk about their plans. Pulte modified them.
Then the community took a unanimous vote and submitted it to county council.

"We had plenty of time to hear what the community's concern was and saw that the developer was not meeting those concerns of the citizens fully, which is ultimately why it was not lifted tonight," Obie said.
"We are delighted and we feel that Berkeley County is making progress to realize, yes, we need jobs and we're not against people developing their land, but not when they're doing things to people, not for the community. You know, we want it to be compatible. And we hope that's the direction we're going with this," Shelton said.

Berkeley County Council to consider major development off of Jedburg Road despite moratorium (WCIV)
It's a well-known sound to those who live off of Jedburg Road: the humming of cars speeding by.
"We used to stand right here, and we would only see one or two cars, but now, as you can hear and see, they are just coming through like crazy."

Doug Burges has lived in his home in Berkeley County for 14 years, but with more growth, he says he is concerned for the safety of his four daughters.
"It is just getting frustrating as people who have lived down here for a long time like myself, it is just getting to the point of 'when are they going to fix the roads?' It is just not safe," says Burges.
So when he heard about a possible new development across the street from his quaint neighborhood, he became worried.
Under a current proposal, the empty space across the street could house more than 460 homes and a 21-acre elementary school site.

"You cannot build more homes, especially a development like this, and think you are being safe," says Burges.
County leaders say that is why the moratorium is in effect, so developers can see the concerns of residents and address them.
“We have heard the residents of Berkeley County loud and clear in terms that there is too much growth going on and infrastructure is not keeping up, so this is one of the ways that council is trying to make sure that we are growing equally," says county councilman Phillip Obie II.
The Land Use committee will consider the development at a meeting on Monday, August 8 at 6 p.m.

Construction of the biggest speculative industrial project in the Charleston region kicks off this week with a groundbreaking event for the 1.1 million-square-foot development at Crossroads Logistics Center in Summerville.
The site, near the Jedburg Road exit on Interstate 26, is being built out by a partnership between Citimark Realty and Pure Development. The Indianapolis companies formed Citimark Pure Charleston LLC to buy roughly 131 acres fronting I-26 for $8.75 million last year.
Their first building will eclipse by 10 percent the previous record for a local “spec” project — a 1 million-square-foot structure at the nearby Charleston Trade Center.
The Crossroads project is scheduled for completion by late 2022. Plans call for three more buildings to rise in two phases totaling an additional 1.53 million square feet at the Berkeley County site.
Wednesday’s groundbreaking will feature speakers from the State Ports Authority, operator of the Port of Charleston, as well as commercial real estate firm CBRE Inc., which is marketing the project.
The term speculative in this instance means that no tenants have been secured at the time construction begins.
While such projects continue to grow in size and scope, they still don’t approach the region’s biggest-single industrial property. That distinction belongs to the cavernous 3 million-square-foot import hub built just up I-26 in Dorchester County for retail giant Walmart.
The Crossroads project is part of a boom in speculative industrial-grade real estate deals in the Charleston area, particularly along the I-26 corridor from North Charleston to Ridgeville. Almost all of it is being driven by the need to store and sort goods that retailers are importing through Charleston.
Mike White, broker in charge of Daniel Island-based Charleston Industrial, said about 5.1 million square feet of “Class A” space is set to open by the end of this year. Most of that space will be snapped up before a certificate of occupancy is issued, he added.
“The conditions of a high demand and low volume of space available will continue,” White said.
CNN will feature Charleston in its upcoming fourth season of “The Wonder List with Bill Weir,” but it’s not looking to be yet another wonderful tourist piece.
The series is now part of the content catalog at CNN+, the cable network’s subscriber-based streaming service.
The four new shows will focus on “fascinating locations at a critical crossroads brought on by climate change,” according to a written statement last week.
The season kicks off April 21, on the eve of Earth Day.
Weir, who has been CNN’s climate correspondent for about a decade, will anchor reports from Montana, Greenland and Hawaii as well as coastal South Carolina.
In its statement, the network suggested that the Charleston episode will look at the “surging seas and frequent floods” that “batter one of America’s most storied cities and the critical reminders of its slave trade past.”
A North Charleston-based global textile manufacturer’s next stop in its 232-year journey is in the Lone Star State.
AstenJohnson, which makes specialty fabrics for industrial customers such as paper mill operators, recently picked Waco, Texas, for a new 220,000-square-foot plant that will employ 36 workers.
The $40 million factory is expected to open in 2023 and will make “nonwovens,” a widely used material formed by bonding synthetic fibers through either a chemical, mechanical or heating process.
In this case, the specialty textiles to be made in Waco will be sold to manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace, filtration and piping industries, among others.
A local economic development group provided the 36-acre plant site, and the company qualified for $2 million in public financial assistance from the city and county, according to a report in the Waco Tribune-Herald.
“The long-term prospects for our nonwovens business are excellent,” CEO Kevin Frank said in a written statement. “Customer demand for our products has only been growing. This investment will allow us to satisfy the increasing demand and continue to offer more products and innovation.”
The global company expanded into the nonwoven sector when it acquired a Missouri-based manufacturer in 2014. It bought another plant a few years ago in New Hampshire.
AstenJohnson traces its corporate ancestry to a family-owned wire business that was started in 1790 in Manchester, England. It’s now headquartered on Corporate Road. Its only South Carolina plant is in Clinton.
Boeing South Carolina’s science-and-math-focused education program has learned that it’s reached a major milestone.
The manufacturer, which makes its 787 Dreamliner in North Charleston, announced last week that more than 1 million students had participated in DreamLearners, a STEM-heavy instructional outreach it launched about 10 years ago in the Palmetto State.
As part of the program, school kids have toured the Boeing South Carolina campus and have had the program come to them in their classrooms. During the COVID-19 pandemic, DreamLearners went virtual.
Students do a hands-on paper airplane activity and learn about careers in the core STEM elements of science, technology, engineering and math, as well as advanced manufacturing and aerospace.
More than 7,600 Boeing employees have volunteered to participate in DreamLearners, the company said.
Boeing celebrated hitting the seven-figure milestone last week at North Charleston Elementary School, not far from its 787 Dreamliner campus.
A Charleston-born business built from formal-wear feathers made famous by celebrities has fashioned a new formation to fete its decade-old creations.
Brackish, a bow-tie retailer that launched after groomsmen’s wedding gifts made from turkey feathers proved popular, is toasting its 10 years in business with a new neckwear adornment called “Cheers.”
The latest version features a turkey feather in the center, a nod to the original design. Its colors — blue, white, green and others — are meant to reflect the Palmetto State from the salty Atlantic to the rolling hills of the Upstate.
Owners Ben Ross and Jeff Plotner, friends from their college days at Wofford, say the commemorative and limited-edition tie “instantly invokes good times with family, friends and, in this case, feathers.”
Edwin Hughes figures he’s spent about half of his adult life at Charlotte Douglas International.
As a member of American Airlines’ Executive Platinum club, he is a frequent visitor to the big Queen City airport, which serves a major hub for the carrier.
Now he has a new place to spend his layovers. A passenger lounge concept that’s already available at Charleston International recently opened its doors at Charlotte Douglas.
The Airports Dimensions-operated Club CLT in Concourse A made its debut March 30. It’s open daily from 5 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and seats 105. Hughes, who lives in West Ashley, said it’s a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle at the North Carolina travel waystation that accommodated more than 43 million passengers in 2021.
“If you’ve got a long layover and you need to get some work done or just relax, it’s a great extra amenity,” said Hughes, who travels about 40 weeks out of the year. “If you fly out of Charleston, you’ll either have to go through Charlotte or Atlanta on most flights, so it’s nice to have this place to go if you’re an American flyer.”
Anyone can access the lounge with a $45 day pass. Club CLT is also available to Priority Pass members, a lounge access membership that starts at $99 a year. Customers in the lounge are limited to a three-hour maximum stay. Food and drink are complimentary with entry.
The Club concept also has outposts in Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and 10 other U.S. airports. Club CHS at Charleston International opened in mid-2019.

Three new shops are in the works for the Charleston region’s growing suburbs, and a longtime downtown retail business is moving to a new location.
A butcher shop is opening near Summerville while a new coffee shop is in the works in Goose Creek and a new fast-food restaurant is planned near Jedburg.
Business partners Devin Kelly and Hunter Bishop, a former Stingrays hockey player, plan to open New York Butcher Shoppe at 502 Nexton Square Drive in Nexton Square off U.S. Highway 17A by late August.
The two Charleston residents bought the franchise last October and purchased development rights southward to Savannah. They plan to explore options for new venues in the Beaufort/Hilton Head area as well as Savannah at a future date.
In addition to select cuts of beef, chicken, pork, veal and lamb, the shop will offer prepared dishes along with a selection of wines and specialty items such as cheeses, exotic sausages and international groceries.
“We will also have something that the other restaurants don’t offer,” said Kelly, a former Blackbaud Inc. employee. “We will have an in-house smoker, and we will offer some cooked meats as well.”
The shop will be open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
The New York Butcher Shoppe chain has eight locations in South Carolina, including three in its home base of Greenville. Others are on Daniel Island and the Isle of Palms and in Mount Pleasant, Columbia and Indian Land near Charlotte.
The Mount Pleasant shop is the original location, Kelly said.
Seven others are located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.
The butcher shop will be the 15th food-and-beverage venue to open in and around Nexton Square. Other restaurants in the shopping center include Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy and D’Allesandro’s Pizza.
A new coffee shop is under development in Goose Creek.
Hurricane Coffee Co. plans to open at 2424 N. Main St. on U.S. Highway 17A near the developing Carnes Crossroads community, according to owner Mistina Chambers.
The 348-square-foot café will be a double drive-thru coffee stand serving gourmet coffee drinks and fresh-baked and locally sourced pastries and treats.
Chambers said she signed a 10-year lease on the property and plans to open in October.
A new fast-food restaurant is in the works for a developing Interstate 26 interchange in Berkeley County.
Jake Rasor of Newberry Restaurant Group Inc. of Greenville recently applied for a permit to build a 2,661-square-foot Arby’s restaurant on Jedburg Road at Strathmore Drive, a frontage road on the northern side of the interstate.
The parcel is between the westbound I-26 onramp and a Spinx gas station and convenience store. It will be the restaurant group’s first Arby’s in the Lowcountry.
Rasor operates 10 Arby’s restaurants in the Midlands and Upstate.
A longtime downtown Charleston gift, linen and lingerie shop opened Aug. 2 in a new location.
The Boutique, formerly at 141 Broad St., moved to 302 King St. in the space recently occupied by a skincare shop that closed in 2020.
The Boutique, operating in Charleston for more than 60 years, was at Broad and Logan streets since late 2017 and at Broad and Church streets for 20 years before that.
The shop dates back to the mid-1950s when Bessie Braid, mother of novelist Alexandra Ripley, launched it. It has changed hands several times since then.
The shop, owned by Lois Daughtridge, is now on the same block as several other longtime retailers, including Croghan’s Jewel Box and M. Dumas & Sons clothing store. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
An expanding convenience store chain in the Charleston area has picked up another accolade.
Parker’s Kitchen recently received the nod as one of the top 10 gas station brands in America for the second year in a row.
The Savannah-based company rose to No. 6 from No. 8 in 2020 in the USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest of “America’s Best Gas Station Brands.”
Others in the top 10 include Kwik Trip, Casey’s, Hy-Vee, Rutter’s, Sheetz, Love’s Travel Stops, QuikTrip, Buc-ee’s and Maverik.
Parker’s operates nearly a dozen stores in the Charleston area, with more in the works.
