Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer – We Help Victims and Their Families Recover Full Compensation
Drunk drivers put all of us at significant risk of injury or even death. Our firm has long supported the efforts of anti-drunk driving groups that are devoted to reducing drunk driving and increasing penalties for intoxicated drivers.
Tragically, the victims of drunk driving crashes may suffer from a number of catastrophic injuries. These include broken or fractured bones, paralysis, permanent disability, spinal cord injury, severe burns, head and brain injury, and crushed limbs and organs.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver or an impaired driver, you are legally entitled to full financial compensation for all damages sustained as the result of your injuries. Frequently, such damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Reimbursement for all medical costs
- Lost wages
- Property damage, such as the loss of your vehicle
- All other damages you may have incurred

Criminal and Civil Liability for Drunk Driving
Drunk drivers who cause accidents and injuries are usually prosecuted criminally. In a criminal case, if a person is found guilty of drunk driving (or pleads guilty to drunk driving), such conviction can be used towards proving drunk driving in a civil case for damages.
If the driver has not yet been convicted of drunk driving, then in a civil trial we will want to prove that the driver was drunk. This can be done through obtaining police reports and introducing other evidence, such as Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) test results and testimony from witnesses about a driver’s erratic behavior.
