gavelThad Myers has successfully tried to verdict and litigated to settlement hundreds of cases on behalf of businesses, individuals or family members of individuals injured or otherwise victimized. Examples include the following:

Anderson, South Carolina – Mr. Myers and co-counsel pursued an ERISA class action retirement case on behalf of thousands of current and retired employees alleging miscalculation of retirement benefits.  The $30 million class action settlement came at the end of more than five years of active litigation.

Rock Hill, South Carolina – In a jury trial against a pharmacy which erroneously filled a prescription, Mr. Myers and co-counsel obtained an award of $15 million actual and punitive damages for a brain-injured child, and $1.02 million for her parents. The young child was given Glynase,a diabetic medication, instead of Ritalin for ADHD. She lapsed into a coma and suffered brain damage that affected her ability to learn. The verdict was upheld on appeal to the SC Court of Appeals, and settled while pending before the South Carolina Supreme Court.

Winnsboro, South Carolina – Mr. Myers represented a college football player and champion weight lifter who was paralyzed when he lost control of his car on a wet and muddy road under construction that was abandoned by a construction crew during a summer thunderstorm.  An $8 million settlement for the young man and his family has allowed him access to important quality-of-life improvements in treatment, equipment and technology. He continues to touch the lives of others as a motivational speaker and minister. To reach out to Brian Moore at his ministry, contact the Thad Myers Law Firm.
