Coping with your medical issues may be challenging enough without handling a legal claim or dealing with uncooperative insurance adjusters. Frank is knowledgeable and experienced in handling insurance companies and difficult claims adjusters.

If you are injured as a pedestrian because a driver failed to obey traffic laws, you have rights under the laws of the State of South Carolina and you may be entitled to compensation. At The Hartman Law Firm, LLC, we conduct thorough accident investigations to determine who is at fault. Attention to detail can be the difference between a successful claim and an unsuccessful one. We will seek to prove the driver was speeding or inattentive, even when the driver states otherwise. If the driver’s insurance company attempts to refuse your claim, we will deal with them directly – we know how to deal with insurance companies from prior experience and we will seek proper compensation on your behalf.

If you have suffered serious injury as the result of a pedestrian accident, Frank Hartman can help you make informed decisions about your legal rights. As our client, you will receive attentive and compassionate legal help.
