A man from Moncks Corner, South Carolina is facing a felony DUI charge after a fatal wreck at the intersection of Ashley River and Wappoo roads in Charleston, South Carolina. 

According to the Charleston, South Carolina Sheriff’s Office, a Buick Park Aveneue crashed at 1:20 AM on Jan. 1. Officers stated that a Bud Light can was found on the driver’s side of the car. An empty Bud Light 12 pack box also was found.


A BAC of as little as .05 increase accident risks, according to reviews of traffic accident reports done for the NHTSA.

Investigators think that car was traveling too fast when it slid acros the road and smashed into a stump. The passenger in the car died later from her injuries.

Our View

Drunk driving accidents cause many serious injuries and fatalities in South Carolina every year. Our drunk driving attorneys are experienced in suing drunk drivers in personal injury and wrongful death cases. We feel an obligation as attorneys to find these drivers negligent in these lawsuits so that they fully understand the consequences of what they have done. Even if they have to do some jail time, having to pay a large judgement is another potent reminder of the wrong they have done.

Even if the victim of the accident survives, the medical costs can be tremendous, and filing a civil suit can be a solution.

Our Virginia personal injury attorneys once settled a case for $5.5 million, along with a structured annuity for $21 million that was to be paid out to our clients over several years.

The wreck involved a truck that rear ended our clients at a stop light. The truck driver said that he had a medical emergency, but we were able to show must likely that he fell asleep at the wheel.

Our clients were two small children who suffered serious brain damage from the accident. While they both survived, both children will need care for the rest of their lives. The lawsuit funds will make sure that care is provided.
