Drunk Driver Accidents | Will You Be Properly Compensated?
If a driver causes an accident when they are drunk, they are arrested at the scene. The driver will lose their license for up to 90 days, be required to attend regular alcohol education classes, pay a great deal of money in fines, and be required to take insurance out on their license. If it is not the driver’s first offense, the penalties are far worse. The same is true if the drunk driver accident caused serious injury or death.
So, can you trust in the law to sort itself out? In a perfect world, the police officers and court system would force the drunk driver who caused the accident to compensate you for all the damages you are owed. Unfortunately, things don’t always work out this way.
