Helping Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable For The Accidents They Cause
As if there are not enough risks to our safety on the roads, drivers who get behind the wheel while intoxicated add an additional and very serious hazard. While many types of accidents can be avoided through defensive driving, the erratic nature of how an inebriated driver operates his or her motor vehicle can create risks that are almost impossible to foresee or avoid.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver, we can help you recover full compensation for your injuries and losses such as lost wages.
How Is A Drunk Driving Accident Different From Any Other Motor Vehicle Accident?
Drunk drivers who cause accidents can be held liable for punitive as well as compensatory damages. This simply means that there is an additional category of damages that is not available in most motor vehicle accidents.
Two of the key questions in pursuing compensation through litigation are liability (Who is responsible for the accident?) and damages (How much harm did that person cause?). A drunk driving conviction can be very helpful in answering the liability question. Juries understand that drunk drivers are often the cause of serious accidents.
