Drunk Driving Accidents

Drivers who cause car accidents out of negligence don't always face legal repercussions. However, those that do are faced with responsibility to both law enforcement and those they injured with their disregard for safety. One of the most devastating choices a driver can make is getting behind the steering wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol.

This is an act that is both against the law and extremely dangerous to others on the road. Hundreds of lives are taken suddenly because of drunk driving accidents and while law enforcement provides punishment for the criminal act, Meyerkord & Meyerkord seeks to stand for the needs of the victims of these events.

Illinois Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Drunk driving accidents are notorious for claiming thousands of lives every year.

Safe driving is important in order to avoid these dangerous individuals but it is often not enough. If your life and family has been devastated because of a drunk driving accident, our personal injury firm wishes to offer you counsel and comfort. While money cannot replace the hurt you have been forced to endure, we believe that it can help you with your recovery. Furthermore, compensation provides you with the restitution you and your family deserve while holding those at wrong responsible.

Drivers involved in accidents while under the influence will most likely be arrested for DUI by reporting law enforcement. Although they will face criminal charges, victims of the accident may still pursue legal damages for the accident and their injuries from the responsible driver. A claim may be filed with the driver's insurance company or in court to recover damages. In addition to compensation for losses caused by the accident, victims may also pursue punitive damages intended as a civil punishment against the at-fault driver.

To learn more about your legal options in the event of a drunk driving accident in Illinois, contact Meyerkord & Meyerkord today to request a free consultation with an attorney.
