Drivers under the influence of alcohol are a danger on the road to themselves and other motorists. McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates recognizes the severity of intoxicated driving and recently helped an injured victim recover more than $1 million.
McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates attorney Melissa Mosier represented a 37-year-old victim who was struck by a motorist in Lexington County, SC. That motorist was pulling onto the road after leaving a local bar when the collision occurred.
