    Common Injuries from Drunk Driver Accidents

    When collisions don’t result in fatalities, drunk driving crash victims often suffer severer injuries than auto accidents involving sober drivers. The injuries commonly include:

    • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
    • Back or neck injuries (including damage to the spine or herniated discs)
    • Broken collarbones or arms
    • Soft tissue damage
    • Strains and sprains
    • Wrongful death

    The number of people injured in alcohol-related accidents in the U.S. is staggering. Eight hundred people a day, or one person every two minutes, are injured as the result of drunk drivers, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

    Compensation after a Drunk Driver Accident

    Following a drunk driver accident, victims have the right to seek the following damages from the at-fault driver:

    • Payment for all current and future injury-related medical bills or expenses, including therapy and rehabilitation costs.
    • Lost income for the period of time the victim is unable to work.
    • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress and a loss of quality of life.
    • Disability.
    • Property damage, such as vehicle repair or replacement, plus any additional property destroyed in the accident.
    • Wrongful death, in which families can recover funeral expenses and loss of consortium (companionship).
    • Punitive damages, which are meant to punish the defendant for a particularly egregious act. Though these damages are not normally requested in every case, judges or juries are often compelled to grant them in drunk driver accident cases.

    In addition to the at-fault driver, some situations may allow for a lawsuit to be filed against the bar or alcohol vendor which served the intoxicated driver. An accident attorney experienced in drunk driving cases will have the ability to evaluate your case and determine all liable parties.

    Why You Need a Kentucky Drunk Driver Accident Attorney

    Choosing to work with a drunk driving accident lawyer in Kentucky will maximize the amount of compensation you receive. Insurance companies will often try to settle claims outside of court when their policyholder involved was driving drunk. It is typically within their best interests to do so, as drunk driver claims that do end up in court regularly conclude with insurers paying out very large judgments or verdicts. Due to these factors, having an experienced accident attorney evaluate your claim and determine its worth will be critical in avoiding a settlement offer that is too low for the level of injuries you have suffered.
    Skilled drunk driver auto accident lawyers can also offer a unique insight on how insurance companies work, ensuring that you are treated fairly, compensated fully, and if needed, advocated for in court.
