According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Wisconsin has the highest rate of drunken driving in the country. Drunk drivers are extremely dangerous, and people are injured or killed due to drunk drivers practically every day on Wisconsin’s roads.
If you or someone you love has been injured due to the reckless behavior of a drunk driver, you may be entitled to recover losses for your injuries, emotional suffering, lost wages from work, medical bills, disfigurement, and much more. Drunk driving accidents are typically very serious, and traumatic injury, amputation, and death are not uncommon outcomes. Drunk drivers often cause accidents by:
- Driving recklessly
- Straying across lanes
- Driving the wrong way down one-way streets
- Running red lights and stop signs
There are no minimum guidelines for determining how much compensatory damages can be awarded to injury victims, but damages are typically directly related to the types of injuries suffered and the severity of losses incurred as a result of the accident. If you have been in an accident with a driver under the influence, however, it is important that you hire a lawyer who will aggressively fight your case to get you the just compensation you deserve.
