Were You Injured by a Drunk Driver in West Virginia?
Drunk drivers cause millions of dollars in damages on our West Virginia roads and highways every years. But as bad as the dollar losses in property damage are, they cannot compare to the incalculable physical injuries and loss of life. There is no amount of money that can compensate for the injustice of losing a loved one or suffering a life-changing injury because of a serious act of negligence like a DUI.
An average 2 people arrested for DUI per night in Monongalia County
The Morgantown City Police Chief reports the number of DUI arrests each is steadily increasing. “There’s over 650 DUIs a year just between those two agencies. Roughly, what that means, is every single night 2 people are getting picked up for DUI in this county.”
DUI arrests are often the result of crashes. Personal responsibility and wise choices are the only keys to preventing DUI crashes and arrests. When these crashes occur, the drivers must be held accountable to pay for the wrongs committed to their passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, and property owners.
A recent example in Wood County, WV involved a wreck resulting in the death of a passenger. The driver reportedly was impaired, and worse yet, was checking texts on his phone while DWI. The driver was charged with DUI and reckless driving after he lost control of his vehicle, drove over an embankment, and hit a tree. The passenger was thrown from the vehicle and later died at the hospital.
At the inception of our personal injury law practice representing those injured and the families of those killed in motor vehicle accidents, we decided that we would never represent drunk drivers for their criminal charges as it would be incompatible with our desire to prevent the suffering which so often results from the negligence of these drivers.
Instead, our goal is to hold these individuals who have chosen to drive while impaired to the highest standards of the law. We file lawsuits on behalf of our injured clients and their families against drunk drivers and their insurance companies for the damages victims have suffered as a result of their irresponsibility. Our attorneys also have considerable knowledge about complex DUI-related truck accidents.
We take every reasonable step possible to ensure our clients receive as much compensation as they are entitled to including funds to pay medical bills, compensation for lost wages, future losses and medical expenses, loss of earning capacity and future lost wages, property damage, and punitive damages.
Your job is to work on the best possible recovery from your injuries. Our job is to fight for you to right the wrongs, as much as possible, caused by these senseless and completely avoidable accidents caused by drunk or impaired drivers and get you the compensation you need and deserve.
Our law firm has developed professional relationships with medical specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and accident reconstruction specialists to build and present cases. We use these experts and more to ensure that our clients receive full and fair compensation for their injuries and other losses.
