When someone who has been drinking chooses to get behind the wheel of a car, they are doing much more than just breaking the law. They are also putting the lives of all others on the road in jeopardy. Alcohol can severely impair a driver’s vision, reflexes, reaction time, and decision making skills. In many cases, this can lead to serious car accidents resulting in catastrophic personal injuries.
If you have been injured in a drunk driving car accident, you have rights. Our legal system allows you to seek compensation from the negligent drunk driver in a personal injury lawsuit. This civil case is completely separate from the criminal case the driver may face for DUI.
You may be entitled to receive compensation for the following damages as part of your drunk driving car accident claim:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs and any necessary ongoing care
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
