If you were seriously injured in an accident due to a drunk driver, you need to contact experienced Virginia DUI accident attorney Michael Strong to fight for you. Here is what you need to know about drunk driver personal injury cases.
Drunk Driver Personal Injury | Consequences
After you are injured by a drunk driver who plows into an innocent family, most people believe that once the police get involved, justice will surely be done, and all injuries will of course be paid in full. The truth is that a criminal case against the suspect often ends in a plea bargain to a lesser offense, and the perpetrator walks him free to commit the same crime again. That is why filing a suit for personal injuries in drunk driving offenses as a civil lawsuit is often the only real remedy an injured party has to recover for lost pay, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Even if committed to a jail sentence, the perpetrator could still avoid having to pay you a cent. If you want to seek compensation, you will have to file an injury claim in civil court and hire an aggressive personal injury lawyer to represent you.
Drunk Driver Personal Injury | Compensation
When you come to our law firm, we will pursue damages that help you pay for:
- Damages to your vehicle
- Recovery costs and medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning potential
- Punitive Damages for the harm done by the drunk driver to our entire community.
As statistics do show that drunk driving is an incredibly dangerous activity, it is unfortunate to say that your loved one may have suffered a wrongful death due to a drunk driver. In such cases, we can pursue damages related to funeral and burial costs, as well as emotional suffering from the loss. If you have been stricken with a catastrophic injury or any debilitation that could last a lifetime, we will also be sure that any compensation you receive takes the extended timeline of your recovery into account.
