Holiday Car Accident

Did you know that drunk driving is a leading cause of car accident lawsuits following the holidays? During holidays, family and friends gather and have some drinks. Unfortunately, many do not make arrangements for a designated driver. When these intoxicated drivers cause a car accident with injury, they are typically charged with felony DUI. This is a more serious charge when there is bodily injury, including death, caused while the at fault driver is intoxicated.

When DUI Results in a Car Accident

The criminal charge may result in jail time and a loss of license for the accused, but it does nothing to restore the victims from the financial turmoil created by the car accident. The victims will have medical expenses from treatment. Some times, this could mean long term physical therapy or even permanent disability. They may not be able to work as a result of the injuries. A criminal conviction cannot help the victims with these challenges.

They have helped people across the entire country when they were injured in car accidents. The attorneys all live in the Lowcountry and routinely help victims in Charleston, Mount Pleasant, Summerville, Sumter, Georgetown and Florence.
