When an accident comes without warning, even the most prepared person can fall victim. One moment, you're walking to a restaurant after a long day of work. The next moment, someone else's negligence and carelessness change your life forever. Personal injury victims aren't just the victims of negligence they suffer from pain, concern over family and ability to work. Often, these victims do not have the luxury of worrying about work and family, because they're clinging to life in an ER. Without a personal injury attorney in Simpsonville, SC, by their side, they mistakenly provide official statements to insurance agencies and accept settlement offers that only account for a fraction of what they have lost.
If you have recently been hurt in an accident, you may be asking questions like:
With more than 100,000 car accidents in South Carolina every year, we hear these questions every day. Our hearts hurt for those who are suffering due to no fault of their own. Accident victims are not only left with questions like those above; they're also forced to deal with costs associated with medical bills, car repair, follow-up appointments, and loss of income.
While reading these facts can be bleak, there is a silver lining. South Carolina law dictates that those who are found responsible for your pain and suffering may be obligated to pay for your expenses. Cobb Dill & Hammett, LLC exists for that exact reason to make sure that negligent parties are held accountable. We fight on your behalf to make sure you get the compensation you deserve. We aren't afraid to go toe-to-toe with greedy insurance agencies who do not have your best interests at heart.
Our overarching goal is to protect your rights, and our law firm is uniquely positioned to do so, with attorney Michael Dillâs vast experience in the auto insurance industry.
We offer comprehensive vehicle representation for a number of different automobile accidents, including:
If you know you have been involved in one of the car accidents above, the time to seek experienced representation is now. Generally, car accident victims have three years from the date of their injuries to file a personal injury claim in Simpsonville. That time frame can be reduced in certain circumstances. When a wrongful death is involved, surviving family members must take action in a similar time frame.
The bottom line is that speed is of the essence in these cases. When we sit down with you to learn more about your accident, we will help you understand South Carolina law so that you are fully informed before taking legal action. The sooner we can dig into the details of your case, the sooner we can fight for your rights.
The law states that personal injury victims are entitled to compensation for the full extent of their injuries. Why? Because the primary goal of injury compensation in Simpsonville, SC, is to help the victim return to the state they would have been in, if the accident never occurred. In the literal sense, doing so isn't possible. The law cannot reverse the incredible suffering and pain that accompanies a severe injury. As such, personal injury victims are entitled to receive a financial reward that equals those damages.
How much compensation you get depends on the facts and nuances of your case. With that said, you may be able to recover compensation for the following needs:
If you or someone you love was recently injured in a car wreck, contact our office today to speak with a personal injury lawyer in Simpsonville, SC. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin fighting for your rights and the compensation you need.
If there were one common truth that we can count on, it's that life is unpredictable. Sometimes, accidents just happen. However, when recklessness and negligence come into play in situations where accidents cause personal injuries, the negligent party can be held responsible under South Carolina law. For victims to have a chance at compensation, the party responsible for the accident must be proven to be negligent. When a party or parties are negligent, they fail to take appropriate care when performing an action, like driving an automobile.
After an accident occurs, it is critical to take certain steps to help prove the responsible party's negligence and maximize the compensation you rightly deserve.
All too often, car wreck victims don't get the compensation they need because they failed to take the proper steps after their accident. Don't let this be you. By having comprehensive records of your car accident and its aftermath, you have a much better chance of protecting your rights and maximizing compensation for your bills and injuries. If you have been injured in an automobile accident in Simpsonville, follow these steps before doing anything else:
First and foremost, seek medical attention for any injuries that you have sustained. You might not realize it now, but your injuries may be more complex and serious than you think. Damage like head trauma and back injuries are not easy to diagnose on your own and sometimes take time to surface. A full medical examination will help reveal the extent of your injuries, lead to a quicker recovery, and help document the injuries you sustained. This last part is essential to prove the significance of your injuries.
The second step you should take is to report your injuries to the correct authorities. The authorities change depending on the circumstances of your accident. If you were involved in a car wreck in Simpsonville, you should file your report with the highway authorities and any associated insurance agencies. Regardless of where you were injured and how the wreck occurred, the biggest takeaway here is to file a report. That way, you have an established, official record of the incident that can be referred to down the line.
Personal injury cases in Simpsonville are won with evidence. It might sound like the job of the police, but it's important that you try to secure any evidence that you can collect relating to your accident, especially if you are injured. Evidence in auto accident cases tends to disappear quickly. By preserving evidence soon after the accident, it can be used in court. For example, if you cannot get a witness statement immediately after your wreck, their testimony may come across as less reliable. Completing this task on your own can be quite difficult, especially after a serious accident. That's why it's so crucial to complete the last step below.
One of the most intelligent, important steps you can take after a car accident is calling a personal injury attorney in Simpsonville, SC. At Cobb Dill & Hammett, LLC, we will assist you with every step of your personal injury case to ensure that your rights are protected. That includes gathering all types of evidence relevant to your case. When we investigate your accident, we will determine the person who is liable for your losses. If there are multiple liable parties, we will hold each one accountable for their negligence.
Every personal injury case is different, which is why experience counts when it comes to car accident compensation. Our track record speaks for itself, but no number of past results will guarantee a perfect outcome. What we can guarantee, however, is our undivided attention and fierce dedication to your case, no matter the circumstances. Unlike other personal injury law firms in Simpsonville, you can have peace of mind knowing your best interests always come first at Cobb Dill & Hammett, LLC.
At Cobb Dill & Hammett, LLC, we have years of experience handling some of Simpsonville's most complicated car accident cases. Some of the most common cases that come across our desks include:
Drunk driving is a major problem in the Lowcountry. Drunk drivers are incredibly irresponsible and regularly cause fatal accidents because they drive physically and mentally impaired by alcohol. Drunk drivers have slower reaction times, delayed reflexes, and impaired vision, making them unfit to operate a motor vehicle. In auto wrecks, drunk drivers often come away with minor injuries compared to their victims, which is a bitter pill to swallow
Individuals who make a choice to drive drunk cause accidents by weaving in and out of traffic, going over the speed limit, failing to see pedestrians, and ignoring traffic laws. They may run cars off the road, rear-end vehicles, hit them head-on, or even cause a vehicle to roll over.
Drunk driving accidents in Simpsonville care result in horrible injuries, such as:
If you are injured or have lost a family member due to an impaired or drunk driver, our team of personal injury lawyers in Simpsonville can help. We have extensive experience with car accident cases and can explain your rights in simple, plain terms. It is important to know that you can file a personal injury suit regardless of the criminal case outcome against the drunk driver.
When accidents happen in RVs or rental cars, people are often unsure of their rights. This confusion is understandable since there are additional insurance and legal issues that must be accounted for in these cases.
Fortunately, the lawyers at Cobb Dill & Hammett, LLC, have the experience to help you with complex car accident and RV cases. Attorney Michael Dill worked in the auto insurance industry before becoming an attorney. He also has an undergraduate degree that includes a focus on risk management and insurance. When it comes to rental and RV accidents, we review each client's case with a fine-tooth comb. Once we understand your accident, our team will explain your rights and options in easy-to-understand terms.
If you were involved in an accident while driving an RV or a rental vehicle, you may find that your auto insurance company, the rental car's insurance company, and the other party's insurance carrier will try to deny your claim. Situations like these call for a bold, experienced personal injury attorney in Simpsonville, SC, who isn't afraid of large corporations and insurance groups. We have extensive experience with insurance companies and know how to interpret policies. As your advocate, we will ensure that you receive the coverage and compensation you are entitled to, even if an insurance company says you aren't.
We can help you seek compensation in cases that involve:
Victims of RV and rental car accidents (as well as their families) may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost income or benefits. Our personal injury lawyers work with life-care planners, medical experts, and economists to determine the amount of compensation you will need.
We live in a time where just about everyone has their eyes glued to their phones. Often, this happens in situations where the person needs to be paying attention, like when they're driving an automobile. Taking a few moments to glance down at your phone can cause irreparable damage to other drivers. That is why texting while driving is illegal in Simpsonville. Typically, this crime is met with a minor traffic violation. However, when a distracted driver injures another motorist, you can seek compensation through a legal suit. If you have been injured in such a situation, our team can help you hold the negligent driver accountable for your losses and damages.
Texting takes drivers' minds and eyes off the road and their hands off the wheel. Because they are not paying attention to their driving,
They miss crucial road signs and information such as:

SIMPSONVILLE — Even in 2018, when Phil Watts and Victor Juarez were contemplating their first joint restaurant concept, they knew there would be more than one restaurant and they knew there would be more than one concept.
Now, the partners behind Tacos & Bla Bla Bla are opening Nixtamal Mexican Kitchen. While the former concept is centered on quick service Mexican food, the latter is more about experience and taking time to soak in every aspect of the dining experience.
Nixtamal, located at 679 Fairview Rd. in Simpsonville, will serve fresh, Mexican-inspired food with a decidedly future-thinking twist.
“So we’re going for an authentic Mexican cuisine with a fresh modern vibe,” Watts said.
Nixtamal is a reference to the traditional way to prepare corn for processing.
The food is rooted in the flavors and spices and techniques Juarez learned from his grandmother in Guadalajara, but the presentation is over the top, Watts said. Case in point — table side guacamole designed to serve up to 8 people. Diners will be able to up the ante of the starter by adding things like pork belly, dried peppers and feta cheese.
Nixtamal will also feature a seafood tower that comes not just with head on shrimp and oysters, but with ribeye and chorizo sausage in the mix. The cocktails will follow a similar style, with the focus being on flavor, but also wow factor. Expect large displays of whole fruit slices and decadent garnishes.
“A lot of our menu items are what we’d call showstoppers — over the top, embellished kind of food,” Watts said. “Pick up your phone, put it on TikTok kind of things.”
In some ways the concept for Nixtamal is a sign of the times. Those times require restaurants to up their game when it comes to social media, Watts said. Having worked on the business side of food as a rep with Sysco for 15 years, Watts can’t help but be a numbers and statistics guy. Those numbers show TikTok, Instagram and Snapchat are integral to business now.
TikTok in particular is getting a lot of attention for generation traction for a brand or business. The app now has more than 1 billion users each month, according to data released by the company in 2021.
“It’s critically important,” Watts said of social media’s influence on restaurant success today.
The theme will carry into the restaurant’s décor. Expect neon signs, vibey music and lighting that makes it easy to take pics with your phone.
“We’re trying to get ahead of that curve,” Watts said.
This is not Watts nor Juarez’s first foray into restaurants. Watts grew up in the business, the son of a restaurant owner in London, Ky. Juarez learned to love food through his grandmother’s recipes. Food was at the root of every family gathering, almost like part of the soul of his family.
Watts furthered his culinary training at Johnson and Wales, but never took it too far. He worked at a few restaurants in Charleston, including Bonefish Grill, in the early days of that restaurant, but instead joined Sysco. That job took Watts and his family — his wife and three young kids — to Greenville in 2017.
Juarez has worked in restaurants for decades. He has owned La Fogota since 2004. That’s how he met Watts. In time, the two got to know each other and they began to dream of opening a new restaurant together, uniting their business and culinary skills.
The result was Tacos & Bla Bla Bla, which opened its first location in Simpsonville in 2018. The fast-casual Mexican-inspired restaurant has grown thanks to a focus on freshness and fast service. Now, there are seven locations throughout the Upstate.
Nixtamal brings more of Juarez’s family recipes to the fore, including posole, chilaquiles, beans and of course the homemade tortillas. Plans call for opening at least two more Nixtamal Mexican Kitchen locations in the next two years. The first is slated to open in Greer later this year, Watts said.
The business partners have plans to launch other concepts. The first, which will center on Southern fare in a family-friendly environment, will open in Fountain Inn within the next year, Watts said.
“I think certain people like Victor and myself are born with a desire for hospitality,” Watts said of the shared passion for restaurants. “You just really enjoy seeing other people enjoy things you create. You’re just kind of born with that hospitality piece.”
Nixtamal Mexican Kitchen is slated to open the first week of May. For more follow Nixtamal Mexican Kitchen on social media.

SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. —
WYFF News 4’s Team Hartstrong marked the last day of the Ride To End ALZ across South Carolina Sunday by surpassing its fundraising goal.
They left Orangeburg strong at 7 a.m. on Sunday.
Geoff Hart hit a pothole and blew out a tire about two hours into the ride - but that didn't slow them down.
The team powered through a heat index of 106 to make it over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge to Patriots Point just after 1 p.m.
Thanks to generous WYFF viewers, friends and family, Team HartStrong raised more than $8,000 this weekend alone to surpass their $44,000 goal - with more than $45,700.
There's still time to help the team reach new fundraising heights and support Geoff Hart as he fights Alzheimer's.
Since the ride started Friday morning, Team HartStrong raised more than $7,000, shattering its goal of $44,000, thanks to WYFF News 4 viewers answering the call to give.
All the money raised will be used for research, care and support of the Alzheimer's Association.
Please consider helping the team reach new fundraising heights by donating to Team Hartstrong today by clicking here.
Almost 500 cyclists began a grueling three days of pedaling Friday morning in the mid-summer heat across South Carolina, and it's all to put an end to Alzheimer's disease.
Former WYFF News 4 anchor Geoff Hart's Team HartStrong, sponsored by the station, which includes three current and one retired WYFF 4 employees, two of their spouses and four friends, embarked on the ride for the second year in a row.
In May of 2021, Hart announced he would not be returning to the anchor desk after being diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease.
Fueled by generous donors, WYFF 4's Team HartStrong set off on this year's ride, which is 255 miles, a few miles longer than last year because of detours.
With heat advisories up across the entire state, the ride tests the endurance of all who are taking part.
Rest stops staffed by volunteers, including a team from WYFF 4, offer hydration and snacks every 10-to-15 miles along each day’s route.
Riders left Simpsonville Heritage Park Friday morning and finished the first day's 69 miles at Newberry College.
The second day of riding was more than 90 miles and ended in Orangeburg.
The final and longest day of the ride, Sunday, stretches more than 100 miles, ending across the Arthur Ravenel Bridge at Patriots Point in Charleston.
All the money raised goes to the Alzheimer's Association to be used in fighting the disease and raising awareness.
Last year, the Ride To End ALZ raised $814,000 among all the teams.
This year, the state organization’s donation goal was a daunting $1,000,000.
Participating cyclists and teams have raised more than $1,160,000 and counting.
If you would like to donate to the WYFF News 4 Team HartStrong, you can do so here.

Spread across the lower half of Greenville County, getting from one end of Simpsonville, South Carolina to the other can be time-consuming if you’re not familiar!

There are three major areas within Simpsonville:
Fountain Inn, SC: Not to be forgotten, but just outside of the Simpsonville border is Fountain Inn. This small town in Greenville county is just five and a half square miles and includes some of our favorite places to grab food.

An awesome arcade that has the best games from the 80s and 90s is located in Simpsonville, SC and we just had to try it out! Thanks to the Upstate Pinball and Arcade Museum for having us come by to do this review.
When I see an old-school Pac-Man machine, I immediately think of my mom and how much fun we used to have to play it (and constantly getting eaten by ghosts). Super Mario Brothers bring back memories I had of my friends and me playing it together in middle school. Yes, I’m dating myself but I don’t even care because there’s a place in Simpsonville where I can now go and play all these retro games and share my own great memories with my kids and make new ones as well.
The Upstate Pinball and Arcade Museum, located at the Warehouse at Vaughn’s and near the Ice Cream Station, has more than 50 games for guests to play, including classics like pinball, Pac-Man, Paper Boy, tons of Nintendo video games, ice hockey foosball, and even Frogger.
This isn’t a regular museum; it’s a cool museum. It does have vintage games on display at the counter and you can read about the history of many of the games, but you can play nearly every game at the arcade. The place started because the owner, Mike, really loved pinball and had quite the collection. So, what do you do with a collection? Play with them, of course! Mike, being the cool guy he is, decided to share his passion and hence, opened the Upstate Pinball and Arcade Museum.
We found the place to be super clean and the games in great working order. I can’t wait to go back honestly.
One of my first questions to Mike was if people could have birthday parties there and the answer was a resounding “yes!” When we posted to our Facebook page about the museum, a reader commented that she recently had a birthday party there for her son and it was awesome. I was actually thinking it could be really fun for an adult birthday party – think of all the great memories you could reminisce about!
The Upstate Pinball and Arcade Museum also hosts special events and corporate parties. So, if you want to do something nice for your employees, bring them here and let them challenge each other to play Super Mario Brothers 3 and make it through the castle without dying.
The cost for two hours of free play for up to 15 guests is $225 plus tax. Extra guests are $10 each and parties must be booked during non-operating hours. Tables and chairs can be set up per request.
The Upstate Pinball and Arcade Museum is located adjacent to the Warehouse at Vaughn’s, where there are multiple dining options and areas to eat both indoors and out. There’s also an ice cream place right next door to the arcade or you can walk across the street to the Ice Cream Station next to the train tracks.
If you want a fun date night with food and arcade entertainment, this is it. And the arcade is really for any age. I went with my two kids (ages 11 and 7) and their grandmother and all of us had a blast.
No coins are needed at the Upstate Pinball and Arcade Museum! The cost for unlimited play is $10/person and that includes all day. So if you want to play for a bit, go have dinner next door and then come back, your admission includes all of that time.
Operating hours are Wednesday – Thursday from 4-9 pm, Friday 4-11 pm, and Saturday from Noon – 11 pm. They are closed Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.
