About Francis

Learn Francis’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    Few people in Columbia or anywhere else in South Carolina live their entire lives without ever being involved in an auto accident. In fact, the car insurance industry estimates that the average driver gets into a wreck every 17.9 years. That means many people are involved in three or four crashes in their lifetimes.

  2. Workers compensation
    Being injured at work is hard enough, but having to navigate the South Carolina workers' compensation system without an attorney can be even more challenging. Many of my workers' comp clients initially try to handle the case on their own. It shouldn't be that complicated, right? Unfortunately, our state's workers' compensation laws are complex and nuanced. Likewise, insurance companies often deny necessary medical tests or underpay you for time missed from work if you don't have an attorney.

  3. Nursing home abuse and neglect
    If your loved one has been harmed, or has died, as a result of the negligence or recklessness of a nursing center, I will seek to help you in your search for answers and justice. There are all too many situations where under staffing, poor training, and a lack of supervision can result in serious injuries.

  4. Personal injury
    South Carolina’s personal injury laws are designed to place you back in the position you enjoyed prior to being hurt. If you have been seriously harmed due to someone else’s wrongdoing, you may recover damages (i.e. money) for medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, lost enjoyment of life, future expenses, and a number of other harms. As a Columbia accident attorney handling cases across our state, I am here to help victims of negligence, recklessness, and abuse.

Exceptional Service with a Personal Touch
From the moment I was introduced to Heyward he presented himself as personable, professional and highly knowledgeable. I immediately felt at ease, and that I was in good hands. Heyward proved himself to be extremely thorough; always willing to go the extra mile by following through with any legal action that might strengthen my case. Heyward didn't miss a beat keeping me informed and updated. Heyward always explained to me what he believed to be the best course of action and obtained my approval prior to taking any action. Heyward consistently ensured that I was well prepared before attending any legal proceedings. I always felt well informed and well prepared. Most importantly, I trusted that Heyward had my best interests in mind. Heyward was a pleasure to work with, as well as the entire staff at Kenneth E. Berger, LLC. I would highly recommend Heyward and the Law Office of Kenneth E. Berger.
