Damages in a Drunk Driving Accident Case

Drunk drivers are entirely unpredictable to other motorists on the road. You might have years of experience with defensive, responsible driving and still find it impossible to guess what an intoxicated driver is going to do next. For this reason, drunk driving accidents are often devastating because other motorists are given little to no warning signs that a crash is about to happen, so they cannot react and try to mitigate the damage.

When you are seriously injured, the compensation you demand can help pay for:

  • Medical costs, including emergency care, hospitalization, and physical therapy
  • Wages lost because you could not work
  • Emotional traumatization, pain, and suffering

Our attorneys can work with medical experts to get a full understanding of your injuries. If we want to get you a fair amount of compensation, then we need to know just how long you will be debilitated by your injuries and to what extent. Otherwise, you could be left with future medical bills not covered through a settlement or verdict amount following a successful claim.

Does a DUI Conviction Mean Liability?

Drunk driving accident claims are unique from other car accident types because there is a criminal element to what the liable driver did. Assuming that your accident unfolded predictably, the police should have arrived at the scene and arrested the drunk driver. This step can be important for your claim’s validity and for reducing your liability as much as possible.

Criminal courts are separate from civil courts, but the evidence used in one can benefit the other. For example, any police reports from the arrest can reveal information that indicates the officers had reason to believe the driver was dangerously intoxicated. If a police officer could reach that conclusion, then an insurance adjuster, judge, or jury member probably should, too.

A DUI conviction can also be quite convincing when used in the context of a civil claim brought against that driver. Furthermore, a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) report can reveal that the driver was objectively intoxicated due to a high amount of alcohol in their blood. At a certain point, it can be assumed that any driver is feeling the effects of alcohol, such as slowed reaction times, blurred vision, and poor motor control that can cause a car to swerve.
