Drunk Driving Accidents in Connecticut

There is never an excuse for driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. It can hinder the motor skills and decision-making of a driver. Drunk drivers are a danger on the open road.

You can be the most careful driver in the world, but that does not matter to a drunk driver. Drunk drivers are not making good decisions and cannot react effectively to their surroundings.

If you are a victim of a drunk driving accident, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team to discuss your legal options.

Potential Compensation for Drunk Driving Accidents

The potential compensations you can receive in a drunk driving accident case include:

  1. Damage to the property the drunk driver hit. It can be your car, home, or other assets.
  2. The medical bills you incur to treat injuries sustained from the accident. That includes future treatment, rehabilitation, and medicine.
  3. Lost earnings and wages because of the accident can be covered, especially if you lose your ability to work.
  4. Any other expense related to the accident.
  5. You may also receive compensation for injuries and property damage via restitution obtained through the criminal court system if the at-fault driver is being prosecuted for a DUI.

Talk to our Connecticut drunk driving accident lawyer to better understand your potential compensation.

Common Injuries From Drunk Driving Accidents

Even though a drunk driving accident is not your fault, that does not mean you will be spared from the effects of the impact. Drunk driving accidents can cause serious physical injuries, which may include:

  • Concussions and head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Fractures
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Other catastrophic injuries

The at-fault party may be liable for medical reimbursements. To know your options, call the Doctor Lawyer Team today.

Drunk Driving Statistics

In the past two decades, authorities have implemented many measures to reduce drunk driving incidents. These include setting up checkpoints, strict enforcement, and drinking age laws. However, despite all these efforts, drunk driving accidents continue to rise.

According to the United States Center for Disease Control:

  1. People who drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher and cause a fatal crash are likely to have had a previous DWI conviction.
  2. Younger drivers are more at risk of driving under the influence. Those in the age group of 21 to 24 years have the highest drunk driving rate.
  3. Over 10,000 people died each year from 2011 to 2020 because of drunk driving.
  4. Driving drunk is illegal in every state, yet a crash caused by being under the influence happens almost every hour in the United States.

Suing a Drunk Driver

Every driver and motorist has a responsibility when out on the road. They have to obey traffic laws and regulations and be responsible when driving. Being intoxicated violates that responsibility. Not only is it against the law, but it can cause serious injuries and death.

If you sustain an injury because of a drunk driver, you have the option to hold that person accountable for the financial burden you sustained. That includes medical expenses and lost income due to the accident.

In some cases, other parties are responsible for causing the accident. This is an area to investigate in order to pursue fair and appropriate compensation.

To understand your case better, The Doctor Lawyer Team offers a free consultation where we can discuss your situation to determine how we should move forward. Set up an appointment with our Connecticut drunk driving accident lawyer today.

Third-Party Liability for Drunk Driving Accidents

A drunk driving accident case does not end with the intoxicated person. There can be other parties liable for causing the crash.

One example is the restaurant or bar that continued to serve alcohol to the intoxicated person. A party host giving alcohol to their guests can also be held liable.

Our experienced Connecticut drunk driving accident lawyer will investigate these avenues to see all angles of your case.

You should work with a competent and experienced drunk driving accident lawyer, especially if you are not familiar with the laws of Connecticut. The attorney can help you navigate the situation to make better decisions about your claim.

The Doctor Lawyer Team can collect crucial evidence for you, including witness statements and police reports. Those are for building a case to determine who was liable for the accident. We will then proceed with all the paperwork on your behalf.
