Every life lost to a drunk driver leaves behind a shattered family. The grief and loss experienced may last for years as family members struggle to make sense of an accident that never should have happened. Of those who survive an accident with a drunk driver, many suffer severe and permanent injuries. These injuries include the loss of a limb, paralysis, quadriplegia, and brain injuries. The impact encompasses everything from the need for life-long medical care to the inability to work. This affects not only the injured individual, but his or her family as well.
If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driving accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries from the drunk driver and/or their insurer. This remedy is not limited to drivers and passengers of other vehicles, but extends to injured pedestrians, and even close family members of those injured under certain circumstances.
Drunk drivers and those who served them alcohol may be liable for the devastating effects of accidents caused by drunk drivers. If you or someone you care about have been injured by a drunk driver, you should immediately contact a competent attorney.
