As we discussed in a previous blog post, the number of drunk driving fatalities is on a downward slide. Even though this is a good thing, it doesn’t mean that the effects of any drunk driving accident are lesser than in the past. We know that all drunk driving accidents, whether they involve a fatality or not, have the possibility of causing major life changes for the victims.
When it comes to drunk driving crashes, there are two types of lawsuits that we can file. The first of these is the personal injury lawsuit that would help to cover the damages associated with the injuries that a person suffers in the crash. The second is a wrongful death lawsuit, which is suitable if your loved one loses his or her life in a drunk driving crash.
No matter which type of claim we have to file, we work hard to put your claim together. We want to hold the drunk driver accountable for causing the preventable accident that had such harrowing effects on your life.
We know that one reason why drunk driving crashes are so hard to deal with is because they are preventable. If the person had simply stayed off the road instead of driving drunk, the crash never would have happened.
You have to determine what you want to do for your case. This might be taking the case all the way to trial just to prove your point. Alternatively, you might be willing to entertain a settlement so that you can get the case over and done with faster than if you would wait for a trial.
