Everyone knows that drinking alcohol and then driving is a terrible idea, but people continue to do it and catastrophic accidents caused by drunk drivers happen with unfortunate frequency. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver, it is important to act quickly to protect your rights. You may be able to file a lawsuit in pursuit of compensation for your injuries and losses, but you must do it as soon as possible.
It is also important to consult an attorney with experience with these types of injury cases. Evidence of intoxication can be complex, and having an attorney who knows how to analyze the results of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests and other evidence is key to determining that the other driver was drunk at the time of the accident.
Examining the Evidence, Telling the Story
At The Jasmer Law Firm, our Chicago drunk driving accident lawyer is known for his ability to examine evidence and explain it to juries in straightforward language. Moreover, the firm has the resources to consult with nationally known specialists such as physicians, reconstructionists, investigators and others who help prove the other driver was legally intoxicated and over the .08 BAC threshold.
As part of the investigative process, our attorney reviews law enforcement reports and interviews witnesses and passengers. This allows a jury to understand in a graphic way how the other driver's negligence in drinking and driving was directly responsible for our client's injuries.
Results of Drunk Driving
Drunk driving accidents are often catastrophic and sometimes fatal because of the speed at which intoxicated drivers operate. The result can be serious accidents such as:
- Head-on collisions
- Accidents caused by falling asleep at the wheel
- Crashes caused by traffic violations
Victims of such accidents suffer injuries such as spinal cord injuries and paralysis, brain injury and burns. Our law firm works hard to obtain the resources they will need to live as fully as possible.
