DUI Victims

In 2014, South Carolina was worst in the nation for percentage of drunk driving deaths. At any moment you or someone you love could become the victim of someone who chose to drink and drive. There reckless actions have caused families and friends to suffer. However, South Carolina law provides an added avenue of recovery for these victims who are hit by a drunk driver.

According to S.C. Code Ann. § 15-32-530(C)(3), the award on punitive damages “shall” not be capped when “the defendant acted or failed to act while under the influence of alcohol”.  Which means you or your loved one are able to move for punitive damages in order to punish the reckless conduct of the drunk driver.
