The types of injuries that can arise from drunk driving accidents can be serious, debilitating and permanent, not only affecting the victims themselves, but also victims’ families. They not only cause physical injuries, but also financial losses to those involved as well as their families. Knowledgeable drunk driving lawyers will be able to explain the laws to you that gives victims the right to recover damages from those responsible for the accident. Punitive damages can also usually be recovered from the responsible party of a drunk driving accident. Accident related damages that can be recovered include medical costs, wages lost, pain and suffering, rehabilitation expenses, funeral costs, among others. An injured person’s spouse is also entitled to recover compensation for loss of consortium or other services from their spouse.
