Millions Recovered For Injured People

Drunk drivers may be liable to compensate injured victims

When Connecticut residents are injured by a drunk driver, it is important for them to have the knowledge of how the legal process can help them with the injuries, damages and harm they have suffered. A drunk driver may be subject to criminal penalties associated with a drunk driving accident, but may also be accountable to victims for the injuries and harm they suffer through the civil process.

Victims of an unexpected drunk driving accident may suffer serious injuries including: head and brain injuries; neck and shoulder injuries; spine and back injuries; leg and arm injuries; broken bones; cuts and abrasions; limb loss; paralysis; and other catastrophic injuries. These injuries can cause immediate harm and long-term damages to victims of drunk drivers. Victims may suffer physical, financial and emotional damages that a personal injury claim against the drunk driver may help them with.

A personal injury claim for damages may be brought against a drunk driver following a drunk driving accident. The drunk driver may be required to compensate the victim for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. If the victims require future and ongoing medical care or suffers lost-earning capacity as a result of the harm they suffer in a drunk driving accident, the drunk driver may also be responsible to compensate the victim for those damages.

There can be complexities associated with a personal injury claim for damages against a drunk driver following a drunk driving accident and insurance companies may also be involved. Because of this, it can be helpful for injured victims, with all they are dealing with, to get more information about the process of bringing a claim for damages suffered in a drunk driving accident.
