DUI Car Accidents

DUI Car Accidents

There is no justification for the negligent and reckless decision to drive a motor vehicle while intoxicated or otherwise impaired due to the consumption of alcohol or another controlled substance. Doing so can dramatically increase the likelihood of car accidents resulting in the serious injury or death of those who are involved.

Sadly, many drivers are apparently indifferent to the potentially disastrous consequences of driving under the influence and other motorists and pedestrians must bear the burden of that apathy. The injuries resulting from a collision with a drunk driver are likely to be quite severe and may require extensive medical treatment.

If you have been hurt in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be able to pursue a civil lawsuit in addition to the criminal suit that the state is likely to bring. To learn more about how this may help, contact the Charleston DUI victim lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.


An accident caused by a drunk driver can significantly disrupt your life and may even permanently alter its course. This can be especially difficult when rehabilitative care is necessary or you are rendered unable to continue to work in your chosen field due to the injuries that you have sustained. A successful legal action can help address some of the needs that may arise in the wake of a DUI accident, and potentially recoverable damages may include:

  • Medical bills associated with post-accident care
  • Rehabilitative costs
  • Lost present and future wages
  • Motor vehicle repairs
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship (in the event of a fatal accident)
