Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable
While the dangers of drunk driving have long been known, too many people still gamble with the lives and health of others on the road. Drunk drivers cause many serious and fatal accidents every year. Those drivers need to be held accountable and they need to compensate those they have harmed.
Additional Damages Are Available
When drunk drivers cause and accident and injure someone else, they can be liable for additional damages beyond those available in most personal injury cases. These additional damages are referred to as punitive damages and they are mean to send a message and dissuade others from engaging in similar behavior.
Does A Drunk Driver’s Conviction Affect My Lawsuit Against Him Or Her?
When a driver has been convicted of DUI, it can benefit the case against him or her. The conviction helps establish that the other driver was intoxicated which can help secure punitive damages.
Driving While On Drugs
Not all impaired drivers are drunk. There are many accidents caused by drivers who are impaired by drugs ranging from prescription drugs and pain medications to different street drugs. We are equally skilled in building cases that can hold drivers impaired by drugs responsible for the injuries they cause.
