Charleston Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
We're Here to Secure the Justice You Deserve
Drunk driving accidents can cause severe injury to the drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and fellow motorists, in some cases even resulting in death. Choosing to drive under the influence is a negligent action and those that commit such an offense should be held liable for their actions.
If you have been injured or you have lost someone in a drunk driving accident, our drunk driving accident lawyers have over 75 years of trial experience to help you recover damages for your losses. We realized that no amount of financial help can make up for the pain and suffering following an accident, but it can help to cover medical costs, hospital bills, and other expenses associated with your injuries.
