Drunk driving wrecks remain an all too common occurrence in South Carolina. DUI drivers pose grave risk to the public. When they injure a member of the community, that victim has rights. In addition to seeking compensation for medical bills and lost income, victims of DUI may seek punitive damages.
If the drunk driver does not have enough insurance to pay for all your losses, you may file what is known as an "underinsured motorist claim" with your own insurance company.
