Every year thousands of people are seriously injured or killed as a result of the gross negligence of drunk drivers. What makes these accidents even more tragic is the knowledge that they are completely preventable. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of a drunk driver accident, you are not alone. Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer John Martin is here to guide and assist you throughout the entire process.
Drunk driving accident cases are more complex than other accident cases for a number of reasons. First, there are potentially both criminal and civil consequences for the drunk driver. This makes it even more important that you seek legal counsel in a timely manner to ensure that all evidence will be preserved and your rights will be protected.
Furthermore, unlike other accident cases, victims of drunk drivers are also entitled to punitive damages. These are damages that extend beyond reimbursement for damages or injuries suffered and are used to punish the driver for their egregious conduct in an effort to discourage them from repeating that behavior. We will work hard to ensure that drunk drivers will be held accountable for their actions and compensate you for the expenses necessary on your road to recovery.
If you were injured or lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of a drunk driver, please do not hesitate to contact us today. At the Martin Law Firm, we know that time is of the essence and we will work hard to protect your interests and get you the compensation that you deserve.
