Finding The Right Advocate For Your Case
Drunk driving is against the law. Resolving a drunk driving accident case may involve both civil and criminal elements. A good drunk driving accident attorney will work with the criminal investigators to share information and build the most favorable case against the drunk driver. If you settle a drunk driving case prematurely, you could miss out on a valuable settlement against the driver.
What Damages Are Involved?
The damages in a drunk driving accident may be substantial. Victims of a drunk driver typically suffer injuries that require medical treatment; if the medical treatment is significant, the bills pile up quickly.
Drunk driving accident cases may award:
- Cost of medical bills
- Lost wages or earning potential
- Physical therapy costs
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Other financial damages
An experienced attorney will know how to carefully and accurately calculate your costs and losses and seek full and fair compensation accordingly.
