FAQ Drunk Driving Accidents

What damages can I receive in a claim against a drunk driver?

If you were injured by a drunk driver, you may be compensated for damages including medical expenses, rehabilitation or physical therapy, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and other damages which resulted from the accident.

Do insurance companies pay for drunk driving accidents?

Yes. Insurance agencies often cover expenses which result from DUIs. However, this is sure to result in much higher premiums for the offender.

Are drunk drivers always at fault?

No. Being intoxicated does not automatically cause fault. However, it is often a strong factor in determining fault and can be a separate offense regardless of fault in the accident.
