Types of Drunk Driving Accidents

Alcohol can seriously impair the ability of a driver to operate a motor vehicle, resulting in serious, catastrophic accidents. These are some of the most common drunk driving-related accidents:

  • Head-on collisions are often due to wrong-way driving when a drunk driver swerves into oncoming traffic or operates a vehicle the wrong way on a highway or street.
  • Rear-end collisions, which could be caused by drunk drivers failing to observe a stopped vehicle due to intoxication.
  • Side-swipe collisions due to swerving from lane to lane.
  • Side-impact collisions from running red lights, stop signs or failing to yield.
  • Pedestrian accidents caused by drunk drivers who speed, fail to see a pedestrian or other negligent driving conduct.

Common Injuries in a Drunk Driving Accident

Drunk driving accidents frequently lead to injuries, some of which could result in lifelong disabilities or health conditions. These are among the most common:

Many of these injuries have a lasting impact on the victim. For example, a traumatic brain injury could affect a person’s memory, vision, hearing, reason, and even their ability to regulate their emotions. Spinal cord injuries could result in either partial or complete paralysis, forever altering a survivor’s life. These types of catastrophic injuries often require ongoing medical treatment and assistive devices, all at high cost, physically, emotionally, and financially.

Recovering Compensation for Your Drunk Driving Accident Injuries

If you were injured in a drunk driving accident, there are several types of compensation that could be pursued by your attorney including:

  • Medical expenses, including emergency room visits, surgeries, prescription medications, assistive devices, and rehabilitative care.
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity as a result of the injuries sustained.
  • Pain and suffering, emotional anguish, and reduced quality of life

If you lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident, you could recover compensation by filing a wrongful death claim or lawsuit to seek the following types of damages:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Compensation for the pain and suffering of your loved one prior to death.
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of income, both current and future, your loved one provided
  • Compensation for the loss of care, comfort, and companionship associated with the death of a loved one.
