We only handle serious personal injury cases - your case is our only business - to maximize your compensation. For over 20 years I limited my practice to personal injury and workers' compensation cases. As a lawyer, I not only wanted to be in the court room more trying case, but I found it much more rewarding helping injured people fight for justice against large corporations and uncaring insurance companies and to force them to pay my clients the compensation they deserve for their injuries and related losses.
---Our personal injury law firm represents seriously injured clients in Car Accident cases, Slip & Falls, On-the-Job Injuries, Unsafe Products cases, Premises Liability, Workers Compensation claims and other injury cases.
---We hate to lose and rarely do. For a partial record of our law firm’s verdicts & settlements, go to our Website linked from this listing (LowcountryLaw.com) and click "Case Results." Our clients will always have aggressive and experienced representation and are given the personal attention deserved.
---Attorney Dan Denton is a certified Life Member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a prestigious group of American trial lawyers which designates its members as among “The Top Trial Lawyers in America.™ ”He is also a Certified Mediator and is usually able to successfully settle cases without the delays and costs of a trial. But if the insurance companies and their lawyers refuse to pay fair compensation for your injuries and all related losses, then Mr. Denton will take your case to court - and they know it.
---Our firm serves injured clients in Beaufort and Jasper Counties, including Port Royal, Bluffton, Hilton Head, Ridgeland, Hardeeville and throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
