Drunk Driver

Generally, when people think about drunk driving cases, the first thing that comes to their minds is a criminal case for a DWI. However, the consequences for drunk driving can bring more than criminal consequences. A person who drives while intoxicated and injures or kills others, can also open themselves up to civil lawsuits. Drunk driving does not only impact the person driving. Any driver or passenger seriously injured or killed as the result of drunk driving can pursue civil action against an intoxicated driver. Taking these steps can help reduce the financial burden by potentially covering medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Situation

You are driving by yourself or with family. You are being a safe and prudent driver. Ensuring you are staying in your lane, not swerving, not speeding. When out of nowhere you are crashed into by another car. You have been hit and you don’t understand how it happened.

Real Life

After being involved in a crash with a drunk driver, you are in serious physical and emotional pain. You are in this situation because of the irresponsible actions of another through no fault of your own. You did nothing wrong, yet you are left with the serious consequences and no answers. Even if the person gets taken to jail for driving while intoxicated, you are not ok. Everything is NOT ok!

No legal action will ever put you in the same condition you were in before the accident. However, taking civil action may help cover any medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Contact The Kiechler Law Firm immediately if you are in a crash involving a drunk driver. The insurance companies are not going to work well with individuals, but they will take you seriously if you have The Kiechler Law Firm on your side. We will fight hard to get you compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and the additional compensation for all of your pain and suffering.

After the crash happens, a quick and immediate investigation of the accident is crucial to determine the level of intoxication of the other driver and to preserve any evidence that is needed for a lawsuit. Without this quick action, evidence could be lost that is beneficial to getting you the right settlement.
