Father Leo was in an accident and got hit really bad by a drunk driver. The reason we sought an attorney was because we knew that dealing with a drunk driver case would probably be very difficult for us to recover anything. When I was looking for an attorney, I wanted someone who had our best interests at heart, was very attentive, and communicated with us on a regular basis. I was personally just taken aback and overwhelmed by their commitment to us. Additionally, Kenneth, my husband, and I became friends. As a matter of fact, when we first spoke with him, he checked every box that we had. Not only did he check every box, he created boxes and checked those as well. I would recommend the Law Office of Kenneth Berger because he is the consummate professional, and our lives have not been the same since we met him, in a good way. So, I would say to anyone out there, for those who may be thinking about calling.

South Carolina DUI Attorney

If you have been injured in a drunk driving wreck in South Carolina, you have a legal right to recover all actual damages, as well as punitive damages. Additionally, an experienced South Carolina drunk driving accident lawyer can help identify every potential defendant, so that all responsible parties are held accountable. At the Law Office of Kenneth Berger, we don’t want anyone who contributed – be it through driving or overserving – to escape responsibility.

I was in a wreck with an uninsured drunk driver, what should I do?

If you were hit by an uninsured drunk driver, fortunately you have a couple options. First of all, all car insurance policies in South Carolina include uninsured motorist coverage, which protects you from anyone that may be driving on our roads without insurance. If you were hit by an uninsured driver, you should file an uninsured coverage claim with your auto insurance provider.

Furthermore, if you have multiple cars at your household that are covered on your insurance policy, you can “stack” your insurance policies to help ensure you receive fair compensation. For example, if you have two insured vehicles at your home, each with a $25,000 uninsured policy, you can stack them to receive $50,000 in coverage.
