The David Law Firm is excited to announce they are reinstating their juvenile (Type 1) diabetes scholarship, “The Davids’ Diabetes Scholarship.” In 2015, there will be 2 scholarships available, each being $1,000. The donations from the law firm will be awarded to South Carolina residents with juvenile diabetes, entering as freshmen to the college of their choice.
Attorney Byron David, a Type 1 diabetic himself, believes the scholarship will greatly benefit the recipient. “I know, personally, the hardships of having Type 1 diabetes. The insulin, needles, glucose testers, test strips and pills are very costly.” says David. “I am honored to be able to help someone starting a new life chapter. I hope to remind younger Type 1 diabetics that they are not alone and can still be successful, despite the disease. I am proud of them for pursuing higher education and feel blessed to be able to help.”
The David Law Firm established the scholarships through the Diabetes Scholars Foundation, who will process the applications and ultimately choose the recipients. “The Diabetes Scholars Foundation is a non-profit organization that creates a platform for funding scholarships for juvenile diabetics.” says David. “I trust their expertise and sophisticated systems in choosing a deserving recipient.”
The Davids’ Diabetes Scholarships will begin taking applications in January 2015. Deadlines for applications are not yet determined. Attorney David will present the scholarship to the recipients once chosen.

The David Law Firm has sponsored 10 wreaths for Wreaths Across America Day. Wreaths Across America’s mission, “Remember, Honor, Teach”, is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. They also organize a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia where we stop along the way to spread our message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
The David Law Firm’s wreaths will be placed in the Florence National Cemetery on Saturday, December 13, 2014. Florence National Cemetery was originally created on land appropriated, and later purchased, by the federal government. The land was first owned by James H. Jarrott and was a quarter of a mile from the Florence Stockade. It became a National Cemetery in 1865, and remains from nearby Civil Aare battlefield cemeteries were transferred and reinterred there.
Florence National Cemetery was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
I’ve heard that you have to pay a lot of money to get a good lawyer to handle a workers’ comp case. Is this true?
You don’t pay anything at all up front. In fact, the lawyer isn’t paid until you “win” your case. The lawyer’s payment is taken out of your check, so you’re not having to dig into your savings or borrow money to pay for a lawyer. Attorney Byron David knows the workers’ compensation process. He knows how to help get everything you deserve, everything you’re entitled to.
Here at The David Law Firm, we have years of experience in successfully representing people who have been hurt at work. We will do whatever we can to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Almost any type of physical injury or mental illness caused by your work is covered. This includes broken bones and all types of sprains and muscle strains. Many times employees do not realize that workers’ compensation also covers other types of work-related injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, loss of hearing or vision, lung injuries, heart attacks, strokes, hernias, disfiguring scars, injuries caused by repeated strain and occupational diseases.
Your employer’s insurance company is responsible for all authorized and related medical charges connected with your on-the-job injury. This includes hospitals, physicians, ambulance charges, x-rays, crutches, physical therapy and prescription charges. There is no deductible and you do not pay any of the medical costs. In addition, you are entitled to reimbursement for mileage expenses associated with your medical care.
The workers’ compensation system in South Carolina is a no-fault system. That means if you are hurt on the job, you are entitled to benefits regardless of fault. All employers in South Carolina who employ four or more people are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover their employees.
If you were hurt on the job, call The David Law Firm today for a free consultation and case evaluation (843-488-1415). Again, if we handle your case, you pay absolutely nothing unless we win.
