DALLAS, TX, July 28, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one person dies in a drunk driving accident every 51 minutes in United States. Even when these accidents do not result in death, they almost always result in serious pain and injuries for their victims.
Drunk drivers may face stiff legal penalties, but DUI victims are seldom adequately compensated for injuries sustained in these accidents. When a drunk driver hurts you or someone you love, only an auto accident attorney can help you get every penny you are due.
Know Your Rights
When you are injured in a car accident caused by someone who was drunk, you have every right to seek compensation above and beyond paltry insurance offerings. With the help of an auto accident attorney, victims of DUI accidents are entitled to seek compensation for:
- Current and future medical expenses
- All related physical and emotional rehabilitation expenses
- Current and future lost wages
- Property damage
- Lifestyle modifications
- Emotional distress
- Physical pain and suffering
When a drunk driver kills a parent or spouse, dependent children and widows or widowers are entitled to seek compensation for damages including:
- End of life expenses
- Projected future income
- Projected future financial contributions
- Loss of a loved one
- Emotional duress
DUI victims and surviving family members are entitled to these damages. However, without the help of an aggressive auto accident attorney, you may be at the mercy of greedy insurance companies or attorneys for the drunk driver.
Don't place yourself at the mercy of a drunk driver and those who would work to protect them. An auto accident attorney will place your rights and happiness as his or her top priority and do everything possible to see that justice is served and you receive every penny you deserve.
