The Dangers of Drunk Driving

There is evidence to suggest that just one drink can severely impair a driver’s ability to react safely to hazards and to control their vehicle at all times responsibly; the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) calls this “buzzed driving,” and it is currently a significant concern for their group. An intoxicated motorist may have reaction times for braking events that are dramatically increased, the inability to understand how fast they are traveling, and difficulty staying within their lane. The unpredictability of a drunk driver’s behavior makes it impossible for a defensive driver to protect themselves. With the help of a car accident lawyer, it can be proven that 100% of the liability should fall on the drunk driver’s shoulders, regardless of the type or severity of the accident caused.

Recovering Damages After a Drunk Driving Accident

Insurance carriers may acknowledge that intoxicated driving is dangerous, but they may disagree that it drops liability automatically from the sober drivers involved in a traffic collision. If you have been hit and hurt by a drunk driver, you may initially be expected to pay for your recovery costs. Through litigation, this may be corrected, and you could be fairly compensated either through a settlement or a courtroom battle.

You should receive financial compensation that helps cover the cost of the following:

  • Initial medical treatments
  • Ongoing care or rehabilitation
  • Lost wages
  • Vehicle damage

In widespread damage caused by the intoxicated driver, it may be possible to pursue punitive damages. Suppose the court does award you punitive damages. In that case, you can be given an amount set by you and your attorney to penalize the driver for their reckless, criminal behavior.

Hesitation to begin your pursuit of fair compensation is usually a disadvantage to you and an advantage to the liable party. Not only do you risk waiting so long that the statute of limitations expires – meaning you cannot file a lawsuit anymore – but you also give them more time to plan their defense and try to push liability onto you. Contact our Las Vegas personal injury lawyer at your earliest convenience to get the ball rolling and show your opposition that you are taking your case seriously, and so should they.
