What Happens If a Drunk Driver Injures Me In a Car Accident?

If you were injured in a car accident by a drunk driver, you have the legal right to recover money damages for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and future medical care. You may also be able to collect "punitive damages", which are additional money damages due to the drunk driver's reckless or "willful" conduct of driving while intoxicated and harming you. You have the same rights if you were injured by a driver who was under the influence of drugs or other illegal substances.

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to.

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection.
