Criminal Cases are Not Civil Lawsuits
Many people who are hit by a drunk driver assume that they will be compensated for injuries and damages automatically if that driver is arrested and convicted. This is not the case. The criminal case that prosecutes the driver is not tied directly to personal injury claims and civil lawsuits. While this means that you have to make your own lawsuit if you want compensation, it also means you can still sue them for damages even if they are not convicted for drunk driving.
What Compensation Can You Earn?
Drunk drivers cause all sorts of hazardous issues on the road but research indicates that cause the most trouble at intersections. Intoxicated motorists have reduced reaction time and hazy or unfocused vision, making it difficult or all-but-impossible to see traffic signals ahead. Oftentimes, a drunk driver will race right through a red light intersection, potentially causing a catastrophic collision with cross traffic.
If you were hurt by a drunk driver, the compensation you require may include:
Emergency medical treatment
Vehicle repair or replacement
Emotional and mental trauma
Seeking Justice & Settlements On Your Behalf
