By now it is no secret that drunk driving is an extremely prevalent issue. From those who have just received their license, to people who have been driving for years, drunk driving accidents happen everyday and often times result in injury or death. To combat drunk driving, commercials, programs, and laws have all been initiated over the past several decades, yet it remains an incredibly serious, too frequent, and truly preventable problem. If a drunk driving accident were to occur, it would be wise to contact an expert drunk driving attorney at 617-787-3700.
While we hear about drunk driving accidents all the time, news of them can be especially potent when a public figure is involved. Recently, South Carolina Senator Paul Campbell was arrested for driving under the influence in Charleston, South Carolina. Senator Campbell’s driving was described as “grossly negligent, careless and reckless” by authorities.
Senator Campbell is now the target of a lawsuit initiated by Michaela Caddin, whom he struck and injured in the crash. Ms. Caddin has recently gone public and called for the Senator to give up his seat in the wake of the scandal. Although Campbell claims that he was not driving, Caddin claims that he saw he and his wife switch seats so that Campbell could avoid responsibility. Caddin is represented by Matt Yelverton of Yelverton Law in Charleston, South Carolina.
