In 2005, alcohol-related accidents resulted in 1,719 deaths, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A driver was legally intoxicated — with a blood alcohol level at or above .08 percent, in 1,250 of those cases.
Driving while intoxicated (DWI), or driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs and alcohol is clearly negligence. A driver who becomes intoxicated and chooses to drive puts every other driver on the road at risk of injury or death.
While the criminal court system can punish a drunk driver who caused the accident, it does nothing to compensate the victim of a drunk driver. If you are the victim of a drunk driver or if a member of your family was killed in a drunk driving accident, call Bush Law Offices at 800-745-9336 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org today. Our lawyers will vigorously pursue compensation for your drunk driving related injuries.
Compensation for Drunk Driving Accident Victims
The civil court system allows victims to recover financial compensation for the injuries and other damages the drunk driver caused. Our attorneys can pursue a drunk driving accident claim and obtain financial compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.
If the drunk driver who caused the crash was legally intoxicated, we can also pursue punitive damages for the injury victim. Punitive or exemplary damages significantly increase the amount of compensation a drunk driving accident victim receives. These types of damages are designed to financially punish and make an example of the drunk driver who caused the collision.
If you are the victim of a drunk driver, please do not speak with an insurance adjuster without first consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer at Bush Law Offices. Do not allow any conversation to be recorded. The insurance company’s goal is to pay you the least possible amount of financial compensation. Their representatives may encourage you to agree to a fast, cheap settlement offer.
Seeking Justice for Drunk Driving Victims
Our law firm is dedicated to helping clients recover the maximum amount of financial compensation. We work to protect your rights and pursue your best interests. We relieve you of the burden of dealing with the insurance companies so that you can focus on healing from your injuries.
We are excellent negotiators who work to achieve a full and fair settlement. However, if the opposition is unwilling to be reasonable, our trial attorneys will take your case before a judge and jury, if that is the best way to win achieve justice for you.
For experienced, effective legal representation, victims of drunk driving accidents can rely on Bush Law Offices. Call us today at 800-745-9336 or send an email to email@example.com.
