In 2011, drunk or impaired drivers were involved in nearly 7,000 car wrecks. Of those 7,000 accidents, many led to serious injuries or loss of life for innocent drivers on the roadways.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a car wreck caused by a drunk driver, it is important to understand your rights and your options for pursuing compensation for your losses. Our Nashville drunk driving wrecks attorneys understand how difficult it can be to address the legal issues resulting from a car wreck, especially while dealing with physical and emotional pain.
In an effort to help you understand your case and your options, we offer advice on the many aspects of your situation, including:
Under personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation for any losses caused by the negligence of the at-fault party involved in a car wreck. We will help you pursue the maximum compensation possible for all of your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, continued care and pain and suffering. In the unfortunate event of a lost loved one, we will help you pursue compensation for funeral expenses, loss of consortium and loss of potential income.
Drunk driving wrecks involve criminal proceedings, in addition to your civil pursuit of compensation. Should the at-fault driver be convicted of drunk driving, the conviction will dramatically impact your recovery. We offer updates on the criminal proceedings and helpful advice on how the criminal process impacts your case.
In some cases, settlement negotiation may be a viable option for resolving your case. Should you wish to pursue a settlement, we will conduct aggressive negotiations with the insurance company. Any settlement we pursue must adequately cover all of your losses and future expenses. If a settlement is against your best interests, we will take your case to trial to pursue a judgment for compensation in your favor.
When an individual makes the decision to drive their vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they put the lives and safety of other drivers in jeopardy. If that individual causes a wreck that leads to injuries or loss of life, they should be held responsible for the losses they have caused.
