Injured by a drunk driver? We can help. | Bart Durham Injury Law

Injured by a drunk driver? We can help.

Make no mistake: drunk driving is a crime. Those who are convicted of drunk driving in a court of law will be sure to face justice in the form of fines, imprisonment, loss of license and many other possible penalties, but this justice does little to help those who were injured by the drunk driver's actions. If a drunk driver causes an accident that kills another person, the victim's family may take some consolation from the conviction, but they will still be left burying a loved one.

There is nothing that can replace the loss of a loved one, but burying a beloved family member is not cheap, and having to come up with the money for an unexpected fatality can make a traumatic experience even more devastating. Those who have lost a loved one to a drunk driver should know that they may be able to recover compensation at the expense of the driver if they make a successful claim.

If the driver is convicted of a DUI, then the chances of successfully recovering compensation are almost guaranteed, but even if the driver is not convicted, you may still be able to recover compensation. A civil case of personal injury is different than a criminal case of DUI.

You should always remember that it is your right to recover compensation for an injury that was not your fault. Whether or not you exercise this right is up to you, but you should never feel guilty for taking advantage of your rights, nor should you hesitate.
