Trey Cook Law May Seek Punitive Damages for Your Alcohol-Related Accident
Punitive Damages, designed to punish and deter the misconduct of at-fault parties, can be sought in cases arising from alcohol-related accidents. Punitive damages are awarded in cases where the judge or jury decides that the offending party's behavior represented a willful and wanton disregard for the interests of others. This type of monetary award is in addition to compensatory damages, which account for such things as medical bills and lost wages. If Trey believes the behavior of the at-fault driver in your alcohol-related accident suggests a willful and wanton lack of regard for your interests, he will pursue punitive damages on your behalf.
If You’re Injured in an Alcohol-Related Accident, Trey Cook Law Can Help
Because South Carolina has a dram shop law, someone in addition to the at-fault driver may be responsible for your injuries. Dram shop laws extend the liability beyond the intoxicated driver to another party. This law could implicate the bartender who overserved the driver or the host serving alcoholic beverages at a party the driver attended. When money you need to recover from your injuries is at stake, it’s important to know exactly who may be responsible for causing your losses. Trey Cook Law will conduct a thorough investigation to ensure every party is held responsible for their actions. Trey doesn't want you to lose any more than you already have.
