If you were injured by a drunk driver, our personal injury attorneys are waiting to hear from you.
Being injured in a car accident is devastating, but sustaining those injuries due to someone’s negligent and irresponsible decision to get behind the wheel after having had alcoholic drinks is especially overwhelming. If you have been injured in a DUI accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com are here to help you get the kind of compensation that you deserve.
While police will arrest the drunk driver, that does not guarantee you compensation for the pain and suffering you might have endured. If you have been injured by a drunk driver in the state of Idaho, we will explore all your options to build the best case for you possible. In a limited amount of cases, there is the option to also recover damages from the bar or establishment in which the driver was consuming the alcoholic drinks. In Idaho, the law provides protection to the victims in the event that a drunk driver causes an accident. According to the Dram Shop Act, victims are allowed to sue the bar, tavern, or other commercial business that served the intoxicated person, if the person was drinking in their business. The Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com has the experience and expertise in handling these cases and getting you a full and fair settlement.
The numbers on drunk drivers are staggering:
- Every 45 minutes, someone is killed by a drunk driver
- One in three traffic deaths are caused by a drunk driver
- Since 2010 millions of people have admitted to getting behind the wheel after drinking
Our work starts as soon as you retain our services. We highly encourage you to get medical attention as soon as possible. Your injuries need to be documented so that your attorney can begin to build you a strategic case that will result in your fair and full compensation. Insurance adjusters will approach you with the lowest number that they can justify and this is NOT fair to you. We will help you figure out the appropriate number and pursue it to our fullest ability.
We are dedicated to helping you hold the responsible party accountable. In addition to the Dram Shop Act, you have several other options to look into. One is restitution from the drunk driver themselves. However, if someone is so irresponsible to get behind the wheel after drinking, it is possible they are either uninsured or underinsured. In this instance, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com can help you look into your own insurance for compensation.
