At the David W. Martin Law Group our Myrtle Beach personal injury attorneys know that our city lies in the center of a long and continuous 60-mile stretch of beach known as “The Grand Strand” in northeastern South Carolina.
According to VisitMyrtleBeach.com, approximately 325,000 live in Myrtle Beach, and another 19 million visit the city each year.
And for good reason.
There are approximately 425 hotels and 98,600 accommodation units in the Myrtle Beac area, including luxury seaside resorts, beach houses, condos, cottages, bed & breakfasts, and small, independently owned “mom and pop” motels. In addition, there are multiple campgrounds and mega RV parks between the city and the South Strand.
There are also approximately 1,800 full-service restaurants in the area, countless bars, and nightclubs that operate both full time and during certain events or high tourist seasons, 90 championship golf courses, over 35 extravagant miniature golf courses, and more than 200 outlet stores that offer a wide range of shopping, water sports, theme parks, live entertainment theaters, and celebrity concerts.
With so many things to do in Myrtle Beach, no one ever expects anything to go wrong. Unfortunately, with so many businesses housed in a single city, it is nearly impossible for everything to go right.
Here is what our Horry County premises liability attorneys want Myrtle Beach visitors, workers, and residents to know about their legal options if negligence impacts their activities.
