Drunk Driving Accident
Minnesota Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Drinking and driving is a serious criminal offense that comes with hefty fines, license suspension and even jail time if convicted. However, what about the victims of a DUI accident? What happens to them? Although there is some justice in seeing a drunk driver behind bars, who will take care of the costs incurred by this stupid behavior on the road? If you have suffered an injury or loss due to someone else’s reckless behavior on the road, contact our attorneys today. We can help you through this difficult time and ensure you are fully compensated for your financial, emotional and physical suffering.
DWI and DUI Accidents
Anyone found drinking with a blood alcohol content of .08 can be arrested for a DUI. Many drivers drive after a few beers at a pub and arrive home safely and undetected. However, many more do not and instead cause an accident on the road due to this negligent and irresponsible behavior.
Drinking and driving accounts for several thousand accidents on the road and although there are strict policies and fines in place for drinking and driving, countless people continue to do it every day. According to a 2006 study, 32% of total traffic fatalities involved drunk drivers. These statistics do not take into account the number of serious injuries sustained due to drinking and driving.
Drinking and Driving Consequences
Car crashes can be devastating to say the least. Many result in broken bones, serious head and spinal trauma and, unfortunately, death. It can take weeks, months, even years to recover physically and emotionally from a car accident. In some instances, a car accident will change your life forever. A drinking and driving accident may take a father away from his children or put a mother in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. A drinking and driving accident may leave a victim struggling with brain damage or without an arm. We can help you file a drinking and driving lawsuit so that you are financially compensated for the losses experienced on the road including:
- Loss of income if unable to work
- If you have lost a loved one, funeral and burial costs as well as protected expenses due to loss of income and retirement
- Medical expenses including medication, surgery’s and doctor’s visits
- Rehabilitation fees including physical therapy, occupational therapy and massage therapy
- Counseling if suffering from emotional trauma
- Loss of companionship and loss of quality of life.

However, our lawyers can help ensure that your future is protected financially so you can work on recovering and moving away from this traumatic situation.
