It’s not fair when you are hurt in a car accident and did nothing wrong. It’s not fair that you have to stop working because you are too injured. It’s not fair that you have a pile of medical bills now that must be paid. And it’s really not fair when a drunk driver was the one who caused the crash.
If you or your family member has been injured in a drunk driving accident in Virginia, you need to know that you do have certain legal rights. You can hold that person, who made the big mistake of driving while intoxicated, responsible for the damages that ensued. Why should you be the one to cover all of your losses?
Obtaining Damages from a Drunk Driving Accident
When a drunk driver causes an accident, he or she may be on the line for damages. For example, you may be able to recover compensation for such things as past and future lost wages, past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages. In some cases, punitive damages are available, which are meant to punish the drunk driver.
