We will seek all damages after drunk driving accidents

A victim of a drunk driving accident in Nevada may have to spend the rest of his or her life recovering from that one split second in which the victim's car was hit by a vehicle driven by an intoxicated driver. They may, for instance, face paralysis because of a spinal cord injury or permanent brain damage after a head injury. In some cases, the victims may include the family members of a person who lost his or her life in a crash caused by a drunk driver.

While any bad car accident is hard to deal with emotionally, victims may have a lot of additional, and justifiable, anger at the person who caused the drunk driving accident. This is because while they may have not crashed their car intentionally, everyone knows by now that drunk or drugged driving is extremely dangerous behavior and can cause a severe collision.

This anger is not something to be ashamed of, as it is not really driven by a need for revenge. It is really a matter of justice that drunk and drugged drivers be held accountable for their actions. At a minimum, this would mean paying for the victim's medical bills, lost wages and other non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering. However, in cases like these, it seems that perpetrators should pay additional damages just to reinforce that their behavior was completely unacceptable.

A previous post on this blog talked about how punitive damages may be available after Reno, Nevada, drunk driving accidents. Our law office is fully prepared to help victims of drunk or drugged drivers pursue these damages when they are available. We will investigate thoroughly, so we can reinforce to a judge, a jury or even a mediator how important it is that drunk drivers pay all damages for which they are legally responsible.
