While the criminal justice system will prosecute the DWI defendant, this does little to help the victims of these drivers who are left with hospital and doctor bills, the loss of transportation and lost wages.

In drunk driving cases, we can make a claim for punitive damages. This is compensation that arises out of the criminal case that the negligent driver will inevitably be involved in. While other compensation is paid out to cover the harm that has been caused, punitive damages are paid as a form of punishment to the driver who caused the drunk driving accident.

Sometimes, the drunk driver isn't the only one responsible in these cases. Our goal to maximize your compensation means that we will look further. We will determine if you also have a dram shop claim. This is a claim against a tavern, bar, restaurant or other commercial provider of alcohol for negligently over-serving their customers.

Whether a case involves a car accident, a truck accident, a motorcycle accident or any other motor vehicle accident caused by drunk driving, our team can help.
