If you’ve been injured on the road or water or hurt on the job, we are here in Lake Wylie to help. If you’ve been charged with a DUI, DUAC, or BUI, we are here in Lake Wylie to help. The personal injury and criminal attorneys of Reeves Aiken Hightower & Burns LLP are a team of lawyers standing by to help those who need us. Attorney Robert J. Reeves resides in the Lake Wylie area and is personally available to answer your questions. We all enjoy living near Lake Wylie and take full advantage of boating and fishing. We also know how dangerous the lake can be when there are so many boats, skiers, and jet skis. People are not always as safe as they need to be, and that’s how boating accidents happen.
Automobile | Truck | Motorcycle Accidents
With all of the growth our area has seen, we also have a lot more traffic on the roads as well as a new high school built on the way into Charlotte. As a result, we are also experiencing more automobile and truck accidents. And, of course, during the warm summer months, we see more motorcycle accidents. Some ride for fun. Others ride as their only means of transportation. Regardless, you have to be safe on the road and assume other drivers will not see you. People always seem to be in a hurry, especially in heavy traffic. That’s when accidents happen. Of course, it is not really an accident; but rather, vehicle crashes occur as a result of bad decisions and poor choices. Young teenage drivers often make poor decisions and are involved in more wrecks. As we all try to get where we are going (work, school, home), let’s be careful and considerate. Afterall, an accident will make everyone late and can result in serious injury or even death.
Workers Compensation Accidents
With growth comes new construction. And with new construction comes more potential for injuries and workers compensation accidents. Construction sites, whether they are residential homes or commercial buildings, are very dangerous. In an instant, a worker can be seriously injured. Everyone has to be focused on their safety as well as the safety of their coworkers. Otherwise, bad things can happen very quickly. In his 25 years experience in handling workers compensation cases, attorney Robert J. Reeves has seen just about cvery type of injury from injured backs, shoulders, knees, and paralysis. Of course, no two cases are the same, and each claim turns on individual facts. Small details can make a big difference in the final outcome of a case. It can sometimes even determine whether a case is found to be compensable or denied. Better make sure your lawyer has the experience you need to represent you and your family.
Boating | PWC (Jet ski) Accidents
One of the best parts about living near Lake Wylie is boating, skiing, sailing, and personal water crafts (jet ski). Nothing is more fun than a day out on the lake. Boating and skiing make for great childhood memories that can last a lifetime. However, you have to be careful and constantly aware of other boaters and swimmers in the water. Otherwise, bad things can happen, and serious injury can occur. Because boats and jet skis don’t have safety belts or airbags, an accident almost always results in serious injury or death. You have to be vigilent and watch for everything on the water around you. You have to avoid dangerous situations at all times. If you don’t keep a lookout, a day on the lake can have permanent consequences.
DUI | BUI Arrests
With our Lake Wylie come a number of favorite bars and the possibility for arrest on the road (DUI) and on the water (BUI). Our roads are patrolled heavily by the York County Sherriff’s Department, the South Carolina Highway Patrol, and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources monitors boat traffic on the water. While we all enjoy a cold beer after a day on the lake or while on the lake, you have to be aware that both DUI and BUI are serious criminal offenses which can result in significant fines and a permanent record. If charged, you should immediately consult our criminal defense lawyers so that they can guide you through the process and give you options. There is a lot riding on these charges. Better make certain you have confidence in the criminal lawyer you hire to protect you and your family.
