According to the Centers for Disease Control, drunk drivers kill over 10,000 people annually, accounting for nearly one-third of all deaths from car accidents.
The same study found that police only catch ONE PERCENT of all drivers impaired by alcohol or narcotics. That has to stop.
When you pursue a claim against a drunk driver, you are entitled to punitive damages. That is a special type of compensation which is not available in most car accidents. It’s intended to punish the intoxicated driver for their reckless conduct.
More importantly, however, punitive damages are supposed to given in very large amounts, in order to send a message to the community. By including a huge punitive damages award in their verdict, juries tell the community: “we won’t stand for drunk driving near our homes, churches, schools, and businesses.”
With over fifty years of combined experience, our lawyers are here to help you protect your community. By standing up to the insurance company, and pushing your case to trial, you can give a jury the chance to send that important message, and make people think twice before they set out to drink and drive. Not every case goes to trial, and we will always pursue your best interests no matter what, but these cases give you a chance to make even more of a difference by standing up to the insurance company.
