Drunk drivers show a stunning lack of good judgment when they get behind the wheel. They take the lives of everyone they pass into their own hands and are lucky when they make it to their destination without causing a wreck. When that luck runs out, lives are often irreparably damaged or ended too soon. If a drunk driver has seriously injured you, you have legal rights and deserve justice. Our personal injury lawyers may be able to help you.
Drivers with a blood alcohol concentration level of .08% are considered legally impaired. The Center for Disease Control estimates that there are millions of incidents of people driving while impaired and that one in three of all traffic fatalities involve a drunk driver. Given the prevalence and danger posed, one should always be prepared to act if they fall victim to a drunk driver.
Criminal Case Versus Personal Injury Civil Case
If a drunk driver injures you, you deserve some justice. First, there are criminal laws that can provide justice in the form of jail time and a permanent criminal record for the offender. However, this does little to help you pay for your massive medical expenses, your lost wages, and your suffering that resulted from the driver’s conduct.
This is where a personal injury lawsuit serves you. In essence, you can file a lawsuit against the drunk driver—and any other responsible player—to seek financial damages to pay you back for your economic losses, your non-economic losses, and for possible “punitive” damages.
