When someone is involved in a car accident, he or she often undergoes a slew of emotional and physical pain. Physical injuries lead to stress relating to medical bills, and the trauma of the accident is often severe enough to keep many people awake at night.
But if someone is hit by a drunk driver, in addition to those emotions, he or she may also feel anger and frustration that someone else behaved so recklessly and caused an accident that was entirely avoidable. As last week's post on a tragic drunk driving accident demonstrated, many lives can be ruined in a crash.
Even though it is often possible for criminal charges to be brought against a drunk driver, a civil suit is also an independent way to hold an Ohio driver responsible for his or her actions. Lawyers at our firm have dealt with the onslaught of emotions accident victims go through, and have helped victims hold the responsible party accountable for his or her actions.
There are many emotional and financial costs resulting from an accident and we have experience evaluating claims as soon as possible so we can gather evidence in support of the victim. We understand that every case is different and therefore compensation is different for everyone, depending on the injuries, loss of income and other damage suffered.
Though it is not possible to quantify the pain someone goes through when he or she is involved in an accident with a drunk driver, compensation received through a lawsuit can cover a number of things and ease the financial burden that comes with an accident. Lawyers at our firm have helped victims to get compensation from drunk drivers.
