The Damage Caused by Drunk Driving

The influence of alcohol severely affects a driver’s ability to see clearly, judge distance accurately, and react quickly. Alcohol impacts hand-eye coordination as well. Being drunk can seriously debilitate a person’s driving abilities overall.

Alcohol’s effects commonly cause individuals who drive drunk to operate their vehicle at very high speeds and disobey the rules of the road. These elements alone are dangerous enough to other people, but the effects on reaction time and vision add another layer of hazard to the act of distracted driving. When a drunk driver can’t see or reacts slowly to things they can see, they can strike other drivers, as well as pedestrians.

Drunk driving often results in:

  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Accidents caused by driving or turning the wrong way on a street
  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Swerving into other drivers
  • Driving into property (walls, houses, etc.)

These types of accidents can cause severe injury to all drivers and passengers involved in the incident.

A collision-related injury can result in temporary or partial damage to all of the body’s systems, most often:

  • The limbs, ribs, and other bones
  • The spinal cord
  • Muscles, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues
  • The brain
  • Skin — cuts and scrapes are common, as well as burns
  • The internal organs

After a car accident involving a drunk driver, victims should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if there are no visual injuries, an examination is always necessary, in case of the possibility of internal bleeding or other injuries that are not immediately obvious.

What Types of Compensation Can You Recover After an Accident?

A car accident can lead to a catastrophic injury and have huge implications for a person’s life. The physical pain from a serious injury can be substantial, and the long-term effects can be even more problematic. Rehabilitative care may be necessary to set a person on the path to recovery, or in severe cases, lifelong medical care may be needed. The most severe injuries can prevent the victim from ever again enjoying a normal life.

The expenses of care and rehabilitation, compounded by an inability to work and a loss of wages, can spell financial disaster to an injured person. A personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver can bring you compensation for these costs. You should not have to pay a penny out of pocket for an accident that you didn’t cause!

When you work with Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs, you may be compensated for the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Property damage
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

If you are considering filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one, damages may include:

  • Medical care
  • Pain and suffering prior to death
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial expenses
