Drunk Driver Accidents
Legal Assistance in Drunk Driving Accidents
No one ever wants to contemplate being involved in a tragic accident with a drunk driver. When it does happen, victims and survivors are left with much confusion and uncertainty as to where to turn next.
The Avery Law Firm represents victims and their families who sustained injuries or lost their lives in drunk driving-related accidents. For over two decades, we have fought hard to hold those accountable for causing our clients and their families harm.
In fact, when we represent clients in these types of cases, we are often asked the following critical questions:
- Did law enforcement conduct a roadside test to see if the driver was drinking or taking drugs?
- Did the police order a breathalyzer test?
- Was the driver arrested for driving under the influence?
- If the driver is charged with a DUI, will they still have to pay damages in my civil suit?
- Can I speak with the wrongdoer’s attorneys or insurance company about terms of my settlement?
- What if the drunk driver was unlicensed or uninsured? Can I still recover monetary damages for my injuries?
The Avery Law Firm can provide answers for all of your inquiries regarding Northern Virginia drunk driver accident cases. We will discuss all of your rights and responsibilities as well as help you receive the financial compensation you deserve for your losses. We are skilled at helping drunk driving victims, and we are ready to help you as well.
Deaths Caused in Accidents with Drunk Drivers
Alcohol-impaired accidents cause thousands of deaths every year in the United States, bringing emotional and financial devastation to the families of both the responsible driver and the victims. The loss of a loved one to a drunk driver is incomprehensible. Claims for wrongful death arising out of drunk driving accidents, allow a victim’s family to seek redress in a civil action, apart from any criminal charges a state may file against the accused.
Know Your Rights
Too often we hear of our clients being pressured to give up their rights by claims adjusters or lawyers representing drunk drivers. That is why it is important to know the full scope of your legal options. Don’t let someone persuade you to relinquish your legal rights or push you into settling your case. You need an advocate by your side with your best interests in mind to fight hard for your rights and protect your interests at all costs. Be sure to consult with The Avery Law Firm before you sign a settlement agreement or waiver, and be sure to speak with us before making any statements about your case.
