A drunk driving accident can cause terrible injuries because the drunk driver often does not have the ability to take any action to avoid the collision. Drunk driving accident victims and their families are left to deal with serious injuries caused by a senseless and reckless act.
The drunk driver can be required to pay punitive damages.
In addition to personal injury compensation, the drunk driver faces punitive damages. Punitive damages are paid by the drunk driver — not by the driver’s insurance company. Our law firm will determine the driver’s net worth and the gravity of harm the driver caused when seeking punitive damages.
We will investigate the drunk driving accident.
By knowing all the details of a drunk driving accident, your personal injury attorney can assure that the drunk driver will be held accountable. We will also review your medical records to determine the extent of damages. We will work with the District Attorney’s Office who is prosecuting the drunk driver, which will help your ability to collect on your civil claim.
It is difficult to understand why a drunk driving accident happens. Our objective is to fight for maximum compensation for the victims. Call the Michael P. Ring & Associates law firm.
