Do I Need a Drunk Driving Accident Attorney?

When you’re hurt in a drunk driving accident, you might assume that the criminal justice system can fairly represent you and your interests. Don’t make this mistake. The criminal system may be more interested in quickly resolving the case through a plea agreement than ensuring that you receive justice. The criminal justice system represents the community at large. While you may be able to recover some financial compensation for your injuries, there is no guarantee of this. To ensure you get the compensation you deserve, and to regain some control you may feel you have lost, it is important to file a civil claim against the drunk driver who harmed you.

The standards are different in a criminal case than they are in a civil case. Even if the offender ultimately doesn’t receive a criminal conviction for drunk driving, the legal standards to hold them accountable for your injuries in a civil claim are different. The laws in a civil claim are more favorable to accident victims, and the categories of damages available to victims are more numerous than in a criminal case.

Your Fall River drunk driving accident attorney represents you. They take the steps necessary to help you build your claim. They don’t work on behalf of the police.

When you have a drunk driving accident attorney working on your case, you’re in control. You and your attorney decide what steps to take to build your case. You decide when to accept a settlement and resolve the case. With an experienced Fall River drunk driving accident attorney fighting for you, you’re not leaving anything to chance. You can harness the full power of the Rhode Island civil legal system in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

Types of Cases We Handle

Though alcohol is the most well-known cause behind intoxicated driving, it is not the only substance that can impair drivers. We can help you if you’ve been injured by a driver impaired by:

  • Alcohol
  • Illegal drugs
  • Prescription medications

All of these substances can impair a person’s ability to drive by causing drowsiness, slowing reaction times, affecting vision, and disrupting decision making. Drivers who are under the influence of any kind of substance may more easily lose control of their vehicle or otherwise drive unsafely, causing serious, often fatal car accidents.

If you were injured by a drunk or drugged driver, you may be able to recover financial compensation for a variety of losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Rehabilitative costs

Sadly, many drunk driving crashes result in fatal injuries. If your family member passed away as a result of a drunk driving accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for losses such as funeral expenses and lost financial support.
