Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
It is hard to accept any act of negligence that leaves a loved one crippled, disfigured or dead. It is doubly difficult to accept when the accident was avoidable, had the other driver not been drinking. For the momentary pleasure of having that extra drink, a human being’s life is ended or ruined.
Alcohol-Related Car Wreck Attorneys
At Douglas Jennings Law Firm, LLC, we take drunk driving accidents very seriously. The state of South Carolina allows juries to levy punitive damages to drunk drivers above and beyond the usual compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. In egregious cases, the addition of punitive damages can significantly increase the amount of total compensation paid.
In South Carolina, there is also a “Dram Shop” law that allows victims of drunk driving injuries to hold accountable those who served drinks to the driver in question – taverns that did not take the responsible and legal action of cutting the customer off, as well as hosts at parties who allowed the driver to get behind the wheel in an inebriated state. We have actual experience with handling dram shop liability cases, and have held bars and restaurants accountable for the damages caused by their negligence.
