About Alexander

Learn Alexander’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Trucking accident
    Wrecks involving 18-wheelers or commercial vehicles should only be handled by attorneys that have the experience, experts, resources and staff necessary to litigate these types of cases. They are not car accidents.

    6 years, 8 cases

  2. Brain injury
    Injuries to the the brain often require physical therapy, rehab, and even surgery. Brain injuries can lead to memory loss, neurologic deficits, and even personality changes. These are difficult claims and often involve a team of medical experts.

    10 years, 20 cases

  3. Car accident
    Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury claims. However, ever car accident is different. Insurance laws can be tough to navigate and insurance companies do not have your best interest at heart.

    10 years, 800 cases

  4. Spinal cord injury
    Injuries to the spinal cord often require physical therapy, injections, and even surgery. Not only can these injuries cause paralysis but they also can cause loss of strength, numbness to hands and feet, and other neurologic symptoms.

    10 years, 100 cases

  5. Wrongful death
    Wrongful Death and Survival claims are tragic events that shatter the world of the surviving family members. It is important that you select an attorney that will pursue all available forms of recovery while guiding your family with compassion.

    10 years, 100 cases

  6. Personal injury
    I exclusively handle cases involving catastrophic personal injuries. This field includes: wrecks with 18-wheelers, Commercial Vehicles, Cars and Motorcycles; Wrongful Death claims; injuries to brain for spinal cord; and Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse.

    10 years, 1,500 cases

  7. Nursing home abuse and neglect
    The decision to move a family member into a nursing home is a difficult decision. You carefully selected a facility that promised to care for your loved one. Violations of that promise should be thoroughly examined to see if you have a claim.

    10 years, 12 cases

  8. Animal and dog bites
    South Carolina does not have a "one bite" get out of trouble free law. Dog owners are strictly liable for bites/attacks unless the animal was provoked. You attorney needs have experience in this area to know the value of your claim.

    8 years, 5 cases

  9. Motorcycle accident
    Motorcycle accidents are not common but often result in catastrophic damages. Insurance laws can be tough to navigate and insurance companies do not have your best interest at heart.

    10 years, 10 cases

  10. Slip and fall accident
    Businesses owe a duty to customers under South Carolina law. Often the victim in a slip and fall accident feels embarrassed and guilty, but rarely is that justified.

    10 years, 50 cases
