Drunk Driving Accidents
You Shouldn’t Have to Suffer Because of Another Person’s Bad Decision
When a person who has had too much to drink makes the foolish decision to get behind the wheel, he or she puts everyone else on the road at risk of serious injury. When accidents happen, not only do these people have to answer to the law on the criminal driving under the influence (DUI) charge, they also have to answer to the victims they injured in the accident.
Perhaps the most tragic part about these accidents is that they could all be avoided if the negligent drivers would simply make the right decision and call a cab or hand the keys to someone who had not been drinking. At Witherspoon & Compton, LLC, we represent injury victims who have suffered at the hands of a drunk driver.
Laurel DUI Accident Attorneys
The potential for serious injury in drunk driving cases comes, in large part, from the driver’s decreased reaction time and impaired depth perception. If the traffic ahead stops suddenly, for example, a drunk driver is often not able to react fast enough to avoid a crash. Unfortunately these accidents frequently happen at full speed if the impaired driver isn’t able to hit the brakes before impact.
Our Meridian drunk driving accident attorneys have the experience necessary to handle these cases. We understand the unique considerations that need to be addressed in this type of personal injury claim, and we know what it takes to secure the justice you deserve. In addition to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and property damage, we will seek punitive damages on your behalf in an effort to deter others from driving drunk or while under the influence. Our goal is to send a message so that people who have been drinking will think twice and make the right decision.
