Frank Hartman concentrates his legal practice in several areas, specializing in cases concerning social security disability, auto accidents, on the job injuries, slip and falls, trucking injuries, medical malpractice, and wrongful death. Mr. Hartman recently achieved a settlement on behalf of his client, a Beaufort, SC woman involved in a slip and fall claim, obtaining a $230,000.00 settlement with a maximum possible recovery of $300,000.00 had death resulted.
The Hartman Law Firm LLC was established by Mr. Hartman in 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina. Mr. Hartman worked with a prominent local firm prior to opening his own firm. During the three years of his employment, Mr. Hartman tripled the settlement results for his clients. His experience in the industry led him to conclude that large plaintiff firms put their own bottom line above their clients’ best interest, settling their clients’ cases on a case volume practice as opposed to obtaining the best results for their client, or profit over people. Insurance companies are well aware of the large firms’ reputation for settling cases for less than their actual values, so they offer significantly less, knowing these claims are likely to settle anyway. Mr. Hartman opened his own firm so he could help his clients obtain the best settlement results and because he thinks the people of South Carolina deserve better.
