Getting in a car when the driver is clearly drunk is a risk that nobody should take. In the event of an accident, the chances of survival or recovery are very low. The injuries may be lifelong and cost more than not taking that risk.
What to Do When You’ve Suffered Injury from a Accident
If injuries are suffered from a drunk driving incident, whether it is a car or truck that was driven, there is help available. Our experienced professionals can handle claims of any kind, as a result of motor vehicle damages from inebriated drivers.
Claims may include injuries as a result of accidents involving multiple vehicles. There may be situations where there was a failure to exercise caution, not recognizing traffic signals or signs, exceeding speed, or not properly controlling the vehicle. There are also single car accidents that can come from the car running off of the road, lost control, failing to maintain clear distances, not following signals, and pedestrians becoming injured.
Danger of Serious Injuries
Professionals are needed who can handle these cases where drunk drivers cause injuries. Damages may be contusions, sprains, strains, and more injuries such as serious, catastrophic results. These could be brain trauma, including spinal cord damages, paralysis, amputation, or loss of a limb. There also may be the need for a wrongful death suit.
