Camden Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers

Drunk driving fatalities are on the decrease nationally, but not in South Carolina. Accidents involving alcohol here are among the highest in the nation. When a family member is seriously injured or killed by a drunk driver, you have greater recourse for compensation than in an accident not involving alcohol.

Lancaster Alcohol-Related Injury Attorney

Specifically, you are allowed to request punitive damages, above and beyond medical expenses, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering. Juries frequently award punitive damages in drunk driving cases to send the message that this kind of reckless behavior will not be tolerated in the community.

Combating Intoxicated Driver Charges

Another option available to drunk driving accidents is South Carolina's dram shop law. Often, parties beyond the immediate driver share responsibility for the accident: the bartender who over-served the driver, the host of the keg party the driver was attending, the private club that waved goodbye as the intoxicated driver sped away. These parties may be held accountable for their part in the accident they helped cause.

Injuries caused by drunk drivers can be life-changing, and even life-ending. The Camden law firm of Speedy, Tanner, Atkinson & Cook, LLC, will move quickly to investigate the accident and file a claim for compensation. At our Lancaster office, lawyer Trey Cook will be happy to assist you.
