South Carolina Drinking Accidents
While there are countless ways that a driver can be negligent, few are as obvious as getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. Such behavior goes beyond carelessness. That driver is breaking the law.
Have you or a loved one been involved in a drunk driving accident? Leventis & Ransom can help. Our lawyers each have 20 years of experience. We are ready to put our experience to work for DUI personal injury and wrongful death victims in Columbia and throughout South Carolina.
Free initial consultations are available in drunk driving accident cases
We represent clients involved in truck, motorcycle and car accidents that were the result of drunk driving, and we handle all such cases on a contingency basis. That means that you are not obligated to make any payments unless we are successful in securing compensation on your claim.
In drunk driving accident cases, we often consult with the prosecutor who handles the criminal case. (South Carolina recently lowered the criminal threshold of blood alcohol content from .10 to .08.) The prosecutor’s goal is to see that the person who caused your accident is held accountable and properly punished. Our goal is to see that you get full and fair compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs. The facts used to meet these goals frequently overlap, and the criminal case is often a good source of evidence.
The drunk driver may not be the only person responsible for an accident. Our attorneys also understand other potential sources of compensation like dram shop liability. We will carefully examine the circumstances preceding your accident to determine if the negligent driver became intoxicated at a bar, restaurant, party or other business that was obligated not to over serve alcohol.
