Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers

It is unfair when the irresponsible actions of a drunk driver change your life or your family member's. Each year approximately 500,000 Americans are injured in DUI accidents, and nearly 17,000 are killed. These statistics mean nothing when you or a family member has been injured or killed because of a drunk driver.

In Indiana, to prove liability, our office has only a limited time following the accident to collect detailed information concerning the accident. Because of this short window of time it is important to contact a law firm as soon as possible. In Indiana, proving negligence is enough to hold a driver liable for damages. When suing a drunk driver in Indiana the evidence must show that the driver had a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher (legally intoxicated) at the time of the accident.

How do you prove the driver was legally intoxicated? Police reports, witnesses, medical examinations, and more can be used to prove that the driver's ability to think and act safely was impaired. You can increase your odds of success by contacting our office as soon as possible following your accident.

Drunk Driving Accident Damages

You may have injuries and expenses not covered by insurance. If so, you may be able to recover those costs. Indiana also provides for punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the driver and other responsible parties who's wrongdoing or negligence caused your accident. JR Emerson can help you learn which damages may apply to your case. Generally, drunk driving accident damages include compensation for property damage, medical expenses, loss of current and future income, and pain and suffering. If the accident caused the death of a loved one (wrongful death) damages for loss of companionship and income may also be recovered by the decedent's loved ones. If the drunk driver took to the road after consuming alcohol at a bar or restaurant, punitive damages may be sought from that business as well. If your life has been permanently changed by the negligence of a drunk driver contact our Indiana auto accident attorneys to help you find justice.
