Drunk Driving Collisions

Any person who causes a motor vehicle accident while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is considered negligent.

Sadly, this is of little comfort to someone who has suffered injuries or lost someone they love in an alcohol-related car crash. An individual convicted of driving under the influence is responsible to pay for all damages, but may not be the only one considered negligent or liable. It is crucial to call an experienced personal injury lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver. There are many unique aspects to consider in these types of cases.
