Every hour on average, someone is killed in a drunk driving crash, and every two minutes, someone is injured because of this entirely preventable crime. About one-third of drunk driving accidents are caused by repeat offenders. At any given time we may be sharing the roads with up to 2 million people with three or more drunk driving offenses.
Drunk drivers frequently drive at higher speeds, drive in the wrong direction causing head-on collisions, crash into homes or buildings, and hit pedestrians.
As a result, drunk driving accidents often cause serious injuries or death. Damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, loss enjoyment of life, funeral expenses, and loss of consortium.
When an accident is caused by a drunk driver, the feelings and fears from the accident are frequently intensified. No matter how carefully you drive, you are vulnerable to drunk drivers.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, it’s important to hire an attorney who understands how to maximize your compensation.
In some cases, drunk drivers may be subject to punitive damages. You didn’t deserve to be injured, and you should not have to pay for another person’s irresponsible behavior.
