Types Of Compensation In Drunk Driving Accidents


Victims of drunk driving accidents may be eligible for several different types of compensation. Compensatory damages are available to cover lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of companionship and other losses.

Punitive damages, on the other hand, may be awarded to the victim in addition to compensatory damages. They are intended as a financial punishment to the wrongdoer. In South Carolina, there is a $500,000 cap on most punitive damages. However, in drunk driving cases, this cap does not apply. There is no limit on how much extra money you may be able to receive.
