Why Do You Need A Drunk Driving Lawyer?
A car accident with a drunk driver is not just a scary experience, but often an infuriating one, knowing it could have been prevented if the other person had chosen not to drive while intoxicated. Drunk driving accidents differ from normal motor vehicle accidents in a couple key ways:
1. Due to the other driver’s intoxication, these cases include a criminal aspect. In addition to the compensation you can receive for the impact of your injuries, you can also receive punitive damages. This is a monetary award meant to punish the other party for reckless behavior.
2. Drunk driving accidents almost always cause serious injuries or death. When this happens, a lawyer is more important than ever. Your finances could suffer for years to come if you do not secure the awards you deserve. This is the last thing you want when you or a loved one is already suffering physically and emotionally.
