Our attorneys know how to take on the toughest accident cases.
For nearly five decades, the skilled personal injury lawyers and hard-working staff members of Jebaily Law Firm, P.A., have fought for accident victims, injured workers and their families in Darlington and throughout South Carolina.
Our personal injury lawyers seek compensation for clients in a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including those that involve:
We also help injured and ill workers to seek South Carolina workers’ compensation benefits. Our founding attorney, Ronald J. Jebaily, is a recipient of the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Educational Association’s “Lifetime Service Award.”
Jebaily Law Firm also works extensively with disabled individuals and their families in Darlington, helping them to pursue Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
If you suffered an injury at work, on the road or in any another incident in Darlington, make your first call to Jebaily Law Firm. We will provide a free, timely and confidential consultation about your case. We will charge no fees unless we secure a verdict or settlement for you or obtain the benefits you deserve.
Ronald J. Jebaily “hung a shingle” at our office in nearby Florence in 1969 upon his graduation from the University of South Carolina School of Law. Our law firm has grown tremendously since that time. Today, we feature a staff of five attorneys with more than 100 years of combined legal experience:
Rangeley C. Bailey focuses on clients who need help with Social Security Disability and people that have been injured in car accidents.
Suzanne H. Jebaily focuses on Workers’ Compensation law.
Brian S. Yost practices in the areas of Personal Injury and Family Law.
Our attorneys, along with our staff members, are dedicated to providing the highest level of client service. We handle cases that are litigated in state and federal courts throughout South Carolina. We also represent clients in hearings before the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Commission and in Social Security Administration (SSA) hearings at Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) offices in Charleston and Columbia.
Every case starts with a free consultation. We typically meet at our office at 291 W. Evans Street in downtown Florence. Whether you take U.S. 52, E. McIver Road or Ebenezer Road, we are just a short drive from the City of Darlington. However, we can also provide a consultation at your home, the hospital or any other location that is most convenient for you.
When you meet with us, we will want to learn more about what happened to you. We may ask questions about where and when your injury occurred and whether there were any eyewitnesses. We also will want to know about the nature and extent of what happened to you.
Of course, we want you to feel free to ask us questions, too. Many of our clients want to know:
We will be glad to answer as many questions as you have about our firm and about your case. As we move forward together, our firm will pay close attention to what is important to you, keep you regularly updated and promptly respond to your questions.
We want you to focus on your physical and emotional recovery. Meanwhile, we will immediately start work on your case. Our services include:
Again, we take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you will pay no upfront costs or owe any legal fees unless we obtain a financial recovery for you.
When you work with Jebaily Law Firm, you will work directly with your lawyer from start to finish. You can expect your attorney to get to know you on a personal level and to work with you as a partner throughout your case.
Even if you are a safe driver, you can still get into a car, truck or motorcycle wreck in Darlington. Unfortunately, we share the road with many careless and reckless drivers.
The most recent S.C. Department of Public Safety statistics show that, during the course of a single year in Darlington, there were:
Some areas in Darlington are more dangerous than others. For instance, the Hoffmeyer Road/U.S. Highway 401 intersection in southern Darlington County was the site of more than 50 accidents over a recent five-year span, according to SC Now.
If you were recently involved in a car accident in Darlington, you should take these steps:
The police accident report will play a role in the investigation of your case. You can request a copy from the law enforcement agency that responded to your wreck such as:
To request a copy from the SCDMV, you can mail a Form FR-50 and a $6 check or money order to:
If another driver’s negligence caused your accident, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your past and future medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more.
After a wreck, the other driver’s insurance company may contact. The insurer may ask you to give a recorded statement and request access to your medical records. You should never give a recorded statement or sign any papers without first calling Jebaily Law Firm to find out your rights.
Many Pee Dee residents work in manufacturing for companies such as Sonoco, Honda of South Carolina, Perdue Farms, Schaeffler Group and AVX Corporation. Additionally, with Darlington Raceway, the area has a thriving motorsports industry.
However, manufacturing, motorsports and many other industries in the region carry the risk of getting hurt on the job.
If you suffer a work-related injury or illness in Darlington, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Make sure to take these three steps:
However, if the employer fails to file a report, or if you do not receive the full amount of benefits you are due, you can file a claim on your own. You will need to submit a Form 50 to:
If you request a hearing, you will need to include a $25 fee. You must file your claim within two years from the date of your accident or within two years from the date of discovery or the diagnosis of your illness.
Jebaily Law Firm can carefully guide you through the workers’ compensation claims process. We will pursue the benefits you deserve. Additionally, we can help you to explore other options. You may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or have the right to file a third-party liability claim.
We know the worries that people face when a physical or mental impairment keeps them from being able to work. At Jebaily Law Firm, we help disabled individuals in Darlington and surrounding areas to seek the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits that can help them to get through tough times in their lives. We want to help you, too.
To receive SSD benefits, your condition must meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of a “disability.” Generally, this means that you must be unable to earn money due to a medical condition that has lasted for 12 straight months or is expected to last for at least 12 straight months or to result in death.
Jebaily Law Firm can collect and analyze your medical and work records, talk with your doctor and take many other steps to determine if your condition meets the SSA’s definition of a “disability.” We can also help you to apply for benefits in one of three ways:
South Carolina Disability Determination Services (DDS), which has nearby offices in West Columbia and Charleston, will process your application. If DDS denies your claim, Jebaily Law Firm will help you to appeal by filing a request for reconsideration with DDS and, if necessary, asking for a hearing before an administrative law judge. Our SSD benefits lawyers often represent clients in hearings at two ODAR offices near Darlington:
We help many clients to get their claims approved at the hearing stage. However, if you need to appeal further, we can represent you before the SSA Appeals Council in Falls Church, Virginia.
If you suffer from a work-related injury or illness, Jebaily Law Firm can help you to seek both SSD benefits and any S.C. workers’ compensation benefits that you are eligible to receive.
