Compensation in DUI accidents

Car accidents in the United States are very common, especially those involving a drunk driver. Distractions while driving can cause harm to others, but being drunk leaves the driver unable to concentrate on the road. This is why drunk driving is a serious offense.

Law enforcement authorities take drunk driving very seriously and have strict laws in place against people who are caught driving under the influence. Though the penalty for drunk driving depends on blood alcohol levels, there could be severe repercussions for the driver if there is an accident. Though first offenders may get way with a fine, repeating the same offense several times could result in jail time and license revocation. A drunk driver could even be held liable in the case of an accident.

If you have been in an accident with a drunk driver, call the police as soon as possible. Make sure you do not have any serious injuries. Inspect the accident and the behavior of the other driver. You have the right to claim compensation from a drunk driver. Compensation includes damages to your vehicle, any possible medical expenses and in some cases, punitive damages as well.

If you feel that you were a victim in a car crash involving a drunk driver, it is advisable to hire an experienced attorney. The perpetrator may hire a defense attorney as soon as possible to devise a viable defense strategy. Your attorney will assess the situation and counter the defense's attempts to dissolve the situation.
