Yarborough Applegate Settles for $1.35M Against Impaired Driver
As reported by South Carolina Lawyers Weekly, David Yarborough recently settled a case against an intoxicated driver. In this case, the two Charleston-based lawyers represented a 23-year-old Savannah College of Art and Design student who was victim of a car accident in Moncks Corner at the hand of an impaired driver. The defendant had a history of drug abuse, and at the time of the crash, had amphetamines in his system.
