How Do You Know the Driver Was Drunk?
Investigation is an important component of any auto accident case. Our attorneys always take great care to determine the cause of the accident. Sometimes, that requires bringing in highly trained experts to reconstruct the accident scene. In other cases, it is much simpler.
Because drunk driving is a crime, if a police officer arrives on an accident scene and suspects that the driver who caused the accident was intoxicated, breath or blood tests are likely to be conducted. When building our case, we can simply draw from the police report and the results of these tests that show how much alcohol was in the negligent driver’s system.
Increased Compensation for Drunk Driving Accident Victims
Victims of drunk driving accidents may be entitled to additional compensation in the form of punitive damages. This is compensation that the drunk driver is court ordered to pay to the victim as a form of punishment for his or her illegal act. Punitive damages are in addition to the standard compensation for medical bills and other costs that accident victims are entitled to.
