In need of a Simpsonville Drunk Driving Attorney?

When they are hurt or killed because of another driver’s negligence, our skilled Simpsonville drunk driving accident and injury attorneys want to help pursue the individual and their insurance coverage for our client’s full financial recovery. Contact us today to learn more about your legal rights and options to pursue the damages you have suffered because a reckless driver decided to get behind the wheel while he or she was intoxicated.
Why Do I Need a Simpsonville Auto Accident Attorney if the Other Driver Who Hit Me Was Drunk?
According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, if a driver has a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 percent or higher, it will be inferred that he or she was driving under the influence. South Carolina law prohibits a person from driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.
Because of this obvious law, and the clear negligence associated with a drunk driver causing an accident, many injury victims or the families who lost their loved ones in these preventable crashes, believe the insurance company will do the right thing and pay for their damages.
Unfortunately, it does not take long for injury victims and grieving families to understand that is simply not true. Although many are surprised by the insurance company’s stance — including the fact that they will make the injured or grieving party prove their case beyond a doubt before they consider compensating them — our Simpsonville drunk driving accident attorney is never surprised by its callous response.
The reality is, no matter how hurt you are, and even if the drunk driver was taken to jail and charged with a DUI with injuries or resulting in death, the insurance company representative is not going to admit their policyholder was at fault.
This is difficult to hear, and even harder to understand. This is also why you need a skilled Greenville County drunk driving accident attorney by your side.
Our dedicated South Carolina personal injury law firm knows the legal threshold we must meet to get the insurance company to begin negotiations, and we will not stop until we reach the best outcome for each of our client’s unique cases. If you have been injured or lost a loved one — even if you were a passenger in the drunk driver’s vehicle or the car, truck, or SUV he or she collided with — we want to help you understand your legal rights and options to hold the impaired driver accountable for your full financial recovery.
