Compensation in a Drunk Driving Accident
A Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 or higher is considered intoxication. When a person chooses to drive, even with impaired judgement and slowed reaction times, he or she endangers the lives of everyone around them. If an intoxicated driver causes an accident, they will more than likely be able to be held liable for the injuries they have caused.
Due to the recklessness and negligence of the driver, you may be able to obtain compensation for:
- Property damage
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship (in a wrongful death case)
In addition, the drunk driver may also face punitive damages. These are essentially additional fines that are intended to provide the injured with further help and punish the driver.
