Top Drunk Driving Injury Representation at Kiley Law Group

Nearly 30% of all accidents are caused by drivers under the influence. Alcohol consumption creates deficits in vision, reaction time, and judgment – all necessary tools to aid in the proper operation of a vehicle. So when a person under the influence makes a decision to drive, they are putting other drivers and everyone else on the road in immediate danger. Driving under the influence is a dangerous and negligent action, with severe consequences.

Someone is injured in a drunk driving incident every 120 seconds. Victims of drunk driving accidents often suffer catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, back and spinal injuries, paralysis, and internal organ damage.

Anyone who drives with a blood alcohol content (BAC) that is .08 percent or above can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). Drivers under the age of 21 can be arrested for DUI with a BAC as low as .02 percent, while commercial drivers can be arrested at .04 percent or above.

As a victim of a drunk driving accident, you have the right to file a claim for any economic or non-economic damages you sustained in the crash. This includes compensation for:

  • Lost wages if you become disabled and cannot work,
  • Medical bills for treatment of your injuries,
  • Physical or emotional pain and suffering,
  • Vehicle repair expenses

In some instances, you also may receive compensation in the form of punitive damages, which are designed to punish the driver and can be paid in addition to the other types of compensation you can receive.

After a drunk driving accident, there are a few important steps you should take to protect your health and your rights:

  • Call 911. You or the other driver may have been injured in the crash. By calling 911, you can both receive treatment for your injuries. Police responders may test the other driver for DUI, which may be evidence you can use in your case.
  • Get contact information. If possible, collect contact information, such as the other driver’s name, phone number, address, and insurance details. You also should ask any witnesses for their contact information.
  • Collect evidence. Take pictures of the crash scene, any vehicles that were involved, and any injuries that you suffered. You also should preserve other evidence, such as torn clothing or other items damaged in the crash.
  • Call a drunk driving accident lawyer. Drunk driving accidents need the dedication and knowledge of the law that only a qualified attorney can provide.

If the person who caused the accident is found to have a BAC that is higher than the legal limit, you can file a lawsuit against him or her.

Pursuing damages after a drunk driving accident can be difficult without experienced legal representation. Personal injury attorneys can assist in the following ways:

  • Collecting police records that prove the other driver’s level of intoxication.
  • Gathering evidence, including witness statements and medical records.
  • Investigating the accident, including how, why, and where it happened.
  • Negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf.
