A Strong Advocate For DUI Accident Victims
Drunk driving is illegal. Unfortunately, many drivers still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking. All too often, this leads to serious motor vehicle accidents. If you or a loved one has been in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, you can benefit from the help of an experienced drunk driving accident lawyer. Based in Berkeley County, I represent drunk driving accident victims throughout the Lowcountry.
George B. Bishop, Jr., PA: A Law Firm Built On Integrity · Dedication · Experience
With more than 30 years of legal experience, I know how to stand up for the rights of DWI (driving while intoxicated) accident victims to help them get compensation for medical bills and other expenses. I take pride in holding drunk drivers accountable for the harm they cause and doing everything I can to send the message that drunk driving will not be tolerated in this community. As a former prosecutor, I have deep knowledge of how drunk driving accidents affect victims. My goal is to maximize compensation for those so seriously harmed.
How Strong Is The Evidence?
In many drunk driving accident cases, the evidence is strong. At the car accident scene, the police may have conducted field sobriety tests and a breath test or blood test. These test results may end up playing a critical role in your case. However, a knowledgeable attorney understands that this evidence is only one part of a successful case. I will take great care to make certain that all evidence is collected and used to build a strong legal strategy.
Additional Compensation For The Victim
Statutory damages may be available to the victim in some drunk driving accident cases. This is additional money that is to be paid to the victim by the drunk driver as a form of punishment. It is meant to come out of the drunk driver’s own pocket, rather than from the insurance company. This is money on top of your compensation for medical bills and other costs. You can be confident that I will strive to maximize your compensation.
