We are in a very dangerous time of year right now. Football season is leading to parties and the busy fall and winter holiday season is fast approaching, which means that there are parties to celebrate those holidays. All of these parties mean that people might be consuming alcohol more frequently as they party.
While the consumption of alcohol in itself isn’t an issue, there is the problem of people who drink and then assume that they can drive home. These individuals put everyone around them at risk of being injured in a crash. We don’t think that this is ever an acceptable risk for a drunk person to take with another person’s life.
If you are injured in a drunk driving crash, you need to make sure that you know what injuries you suffered and what treatments you need for those injuries. This should be done by seeking medical care, which also provides you with a tie between the accident and the injuries that you can use in your claim for compensation.
This is another thing that you have to think about in these cases. If you have suffered at all because of the crash, you might want to look into a claim for compensation, especially if the injuries you suffered are serious.
A serious injury might mean that you need more compensation than what the insurance can provide. You don’t have to just accept that you are going to be financially ruined by the drunk driving crash. Instead, we can help you to pursue a claim for compensation that seeks to hold the driver financially liable for your physical, mental and monetary damages.
