Accidents caused by drunk drivers are extremely difficult for victims and their families to process. This did not have to happen. The accident could have been entirely avoided if someone had just made the simple decision not to drive under the influence of alcohol. Instead, an innocent person was subjected to serious accident-related injuries – or even killed.

Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable
A person who causes a drunk driving accident will certainly be subject to criminal charges if their blood alcohol concentration exceeds the legal limit. However, in cases where an innocent motorist was severely injured, the drunk driver must also be held civilly liable for their actions. Our firm can assist you in holding negligent drivers and their insurance companies fully accountable.
We take on drunk driving accident cases involving:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Driving under the influence of drugs / drugged driving
Fatal Drunk Driving Accidents
The worst possible outcome of an accident caused by a drunk driver is the loss of one’s life. Unfortunately, automobile accidents are the primary cause of death for Americans under 34 years of age. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are 29 fatal accidents every day caused by alcohol in the United States. Although this number has been on the decline, every life lost unnecessarily is a tragedy.
In cases of wrongful death, we can help you fight for the full and fair amount of compensation. There are additional compensation needs associated with a case of this esteem, such as for funeral expenses and the loss of services and companionship. Make sure you have a compassionate and driven attorney by your side.
