A couple of weeks ago on the blog we discussed how alcohol can affect an individual’s ability to drive. This should be common knowledge, but far too many motorists still choose to drink and drive. When these intoxicated individuals are affected beyond their control by intoxicants, the results can be quite serious. Drunk drivers can cause a devastating auto accident that leaves victims with serious, perhaps disabling, injuries. In some instances these wrecks are fatal.
Those negligent individuals who cause these types of accidents should be held accountable for their actions. Yet, though the criminal law system may try to punish these drunk drivers, nothing is done to hold them accountable for the damages done to victims unless the victims themselves take action. Thus, if you have been hurt in a drunk driving accident you should fully consider whether filing a personal injury lawsuit is right for you.
How can a personal injury claim help you? If successful, a claim could bring you compensation to help pay off medical expenses, recoup lost wages and ease your pain and suffering. Winning a lawsuit could mean you find the financial stability you need to focus on your recovery and move on with life.
Recovering compensation from a lawsuit is rarely easy, though, as defendants are often represented by zealous attorneys who fight for dismissal of the suit or a settlement that is far below what is owed. This is why it is critical that you find legal representation that will fight for what you deserve. At Konicek & Dillon, we aggressively advocate for our clients, performing due diligence to ensure that our clients’ claims are presented as persuasively as possible given the circumstances. Our track record speaks for itself and we take pride in the many car victims we have helped as they transgress their path to recovery.
