What To Do If You Were Struck By A Drunk Driver
If your injuries were caused by a drunk driver, it is important to understand that any criminal case being brought against the intoxicated driver is separate from any civil claim that you may choose to file. Meaning, that you may be able to successfully pursue a personal injury award against the other driver regardless of whether they are facing criminal charges are not. The civil justice system imposes a different standard of proof than the criminal justice system does. As a result, it may be far easier for you to hold the driver accountable via a personal injury suit than it would be for a prosecutor to secure a criminal conviction. Our attorneys can explain this standard of proof in greater detail during a risk-free consultation.
If you have recently been injured in a car accident that was caused—either partially or totally—by another’s negligence, recklessness, or intentionally harmful conduct, you have rights and options available to you under the law. No two car accident cases ever unfold under exactly the same circumstances, though. This is one of the many reasons why it is important to speak with the experienced legal team at John K. Zaid & Associates before making any assumptions about how strong or weak your legal case may be. All too often, car accident victims dismiss the idea that they are entitled to compensation and, therefore, never pursue what they are owed. Once our team assesses your situation, you’ll be able to make informed choices about whether to file legal action against those who caused you harm.
