Drunk Driving Damages
Drunk driving accidents can lead to heavy financial burdens for the victim and his or her family. It is a negligent action not intended for harm, but one that can negatively impact an entire family's life. Because of the high rate of drunk driving accidents in the US, and the fact that they could very easily be avoided, these lawsuits have numerous precedents. An experienced attorney can help guide you through the aftermath after suffering an injury from these tragedies.
Facts about drunk driving accident lawsuits:
- Multiple parties could be held liable, including the driver, the people who supplied the driver with alcohol, and their employer if they were working at the time of the accident.
- Drunk drivers can be sued both by the injured for damages, and the state for criminal charges.
- You can often file for punitive damages in these lawsuits, meaning you seize personal assets from the drunk driver, not their insurance company.
