Millions Recovered For Injured People

If you're involved in a drunk driving accident, you need support

Drunk driving crashes are devastating. The driver might have been asleep behind the wheel, failed to react to vehicles slowing down ahead or traffic signals telling them to stop. The driver might have suddenly swerved into the other lane or may have missed a stop sign and entered into a busy intersection.

No matter what kind of situation led to the crash, there is one thing that is true: The driver was not following the laws and was not being safe. Their actions shouldn't be ignored because what they've done has harmed another person.

Drunk driving crashes impact thousands of people in the United States every year. In fact, in 2016, 10,996 people were killed in crashes involving a drunk driver. In the majority of those cases, the drivers were between the ages of 21 and 44. If one of those drivers has impacted you, then you deserve the opportunity to hold them accountable.

What happens after a drunk driving crash?

After a drunk driving crash, victims will be taken to the hospital if necessary. You should go to the emergency room, even if you think that you're fine. This is the appropriate time to start a paper trail showing that you were involved in a crash with the driver and that you may have been hurt.

Next, you will likely speak with the police. Don't say anything that might place blame on yourself. Just give a simple report of what happened. For example, the other driver went through a red light and hit the side of your vehicle.

After there is a record of the crash and you have received some treatment, your attorney will help you start your insurance claim.
