The holiday season is upon us, and everywhere you turn, people are shopping, gathering, and celebrating. From holiday office parties to family dinners to meeting with old friends, you can bet that many people are enjoying some eggnog, wine, champagne, and other alcoholic drinks during the holiday season. Problems arise when revelers decide to drive home after the party.
Law enforcement agencies know that drunk driving increases from Thanksgiving to New Year’s, and they increase enforcement efforts during this time. However, police can’t arrest every drunk driver before they cause accidents, and a drunk driving accident can disrupt the holiday season for you and your family.
Holding Drunk Drivers Liable for Your Losses
If a drunk driver causes injuries, they should be held completely accountable for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. While police officers may arrest a drunk driver and the driver may face criminal charges of driving under the influence (DUI), a criminal case often does little to compensate accident victims for the full extent of their losses. Instead, you should discuss your accident and injuries with a skilled personal injury attorney who can stand up for your rights.
Our attorneys regularly help injured victims of drunk driving accidents by doing the following and more:
- Gathering evidence of liability
- Calculating the full value of your claim
- Filing an insurance claim and handling every aspect of the insurance process
- Filing a personal injury lawsuit when needed
