Drunk Driving Accident
Have You Been Involved In A Drunk Driving Accident?
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) are responsible for nearly 1/3 of all traffic related deaths in the United States. According to Cyber Drive Illinois 317 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes, which was 32% of the 991 total crash fatalities. Drinking and driving inflicts destructive and devastating behavior causing death and or injury to not only the driver, but innocent victims as well. If you or a loved one has been involved in a drunk driving accident our lawyers will fight for compensation to bring DUI offenders to justice.
Civil Suits for Drunk Driving
A civil suit for drunk driving is separate from any criminal charges the driver may face. Criminal charges are designed to protect the public in the future and to punish the drunk driver. Rarely do criminal charges help victims pick up the pieces after an accident. A civil case based on drunk driving comes in the form of an injury lawsuit filed by the victim of a drunk driver, or their families in the case of a fatality. If you have been injured by a negligent, drunk driver, you may be able to receive compensation to recover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and damaged properties.
Hold Drunk Drivers Responsible
The legal limit for blood alcohol content in the state of Illinois is .08 percent. If a driver has a BAC of .08 or higher, he or she is considered too impaired to drive and can be charged with a crime. A collision with a driver who was impaired by alcohol is one of the most heart-breaking ways a person can be injured in an accident. Drunk driving accidents are preventable, and yet occur so regularly. At She Law Group our attorneys are committed to fighting against drunk drivers and seeking justice on behalf of those who have been injured in an alcohol-related crash. Drunk driving is a choice and a serious crime, not an accident. Our skilled lawyers aggressively advocate to help clients recover the compensation they need and deserve.
