Claims On Accidents Caused By Drunk Driving
The dangers involved in drunk driving should be apparent to all of us. Operating a powerful machine like a car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol means impaired judgment, slowed reflexes, and other problems which make someone less safe behind the wheel. These facts are reinforced from a very early age, and modernly, one can expect universal condemnation towards anyone caught driving while drunk.
Unfortunately, there are still people who fail to heed this advice. As indicated by the frequency with which we all see drunken driving, there are those who would continue to endanger the general public by operating their vehicles in an intoxicated state. For a person frequently engaging in such behavior, it’s only a matter of time until they cause a serious accident. And when they do so, the damage they inflict can be catastrophic.
Building A Claim after a DUI
Fortunately, the law tends to favor victims of DUI accidents. The behavior of those causing such accidents is perceived as completely reckless by everyday citizens, who are ready to severely punish the offense. Jurors typically share this perception, which increases the chances of success at trial.
Additionally, being hit by a drunk driver or being a victim of an accident caused by drunk driving enables the victims to seek punitive claims. If punitive damages are allowed, they can add considerably to the value of an injury claim.
