Accidents Due to Drunk Driving
Drunk driving and driving under the influence (DUI) is a major cause of minor and catastrophic car accidents. It leads to a wide range of physical injuries.
Although many drivers are aware of the risks involved with DUI, a large number of accidents that involve the use of alcohol and/or other intoxicants occur each year.
If you’ve been injured as a result of another person’s DUI, you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.
Personal injuries related to drunk driving include fractures, lacerations, brain and spinal cord injuries. Long-term or permanent disabilities and impairment can also result from these accidents.
Drunk drivers can face both criminal and civil charges. This gives you additional options for obtaining compensation for your damages.
Establishments that serve alcohol to drunk drivers can also be held accountable. Known as “dram shop actions”, these legal proceedings can be held against bars, restaurants, and liquor stores among many others that are involved in serving alcohol to drivers.
Allowing an intoxicated patron to leave an establishment and drive away could make a business liable for any resulting drunk driving accidents.
Let us help you determine all of the options you have for getting the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
