Morris Law, LLC recently obtained a settlement for a client in the amount of $321,857.56 following an injury accident. The client, a resident of Myrtle Beach, was heading north along Oak Street in town when another driver was turning left illegally. As a result, our client T-boned the other driver’s car. Because the at-fault driver committed an illegal maneuver that caused the car accident and did not grant the right of way to our client, they became liable for damages.
Drunk drivers take approximately 10,000 lives every year in the United States. In addition, they cause serious injuries, many of which are life-altering.
