Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys in South Carolina

Pursuing Justice & a Fair Recovery for Victims of Drunk Drivers

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), drunk driving-related fatalities reached a staggering 10,497 in 2016 (the latest year for which data is available). Sadly, South Carolina ranks high in the list of states with the greatest number of drunk driving fatalities, coming in second place, according to some reports.

If you were injured or your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, reach out to our South Carolina drunk driving accident attorneys as soon as possible for a free, confidential consultation.

Understanding South Carolina Drunk Driving Laws

Drunk driving is illegal in all 50 U.S. states. In South Carolina, like many other states, it is illegal for anyone who is over the age of 21 to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. Additionally, commercial driver’s license holders may not operate any vehicle (whether it is a commercial vehicle or otherwise) with a BAC of 0.04% or higher. Minors, or anyone under the age of 21, may not drive a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.02% or above.

Violation of any South Carolina law regarding driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can result in criminal penalties. It can also result in civil action if the drunk driver caused bodily injury or property damage while operating a vehicle.

If you are injured by a drunk driver, you may pursue civil action to recover compensation for damages, including but not limited to:

  • Medical expenses related to the accident
  • The projected cost of future medical care
  • Lost income/wages from time taken off work to receive treatment
  • Loss of earning ability if your injuries are temporarily or permanently disabling
  • Physical pain and suffering associated with the accident
  • Emotional distress/trauma and loss of life enjoyment

Additionally, if your loved one was killed as a result of a collision with a drunk driver, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical bills for treatment prior to death
  • Funeral/burial expenses
  • Loss of love/companionship
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of expected income and/or support
  • Loss of benefits or inheritance
