Personal Injury Lawyer
Most auto accidents are preventable for as long as motorists practice road safety measures and obey the traffic laws. In this case, a motorist is accused of driving under the influence of drugs which is considered as a serious crime throughout the state. DUI has corresponding criminal penalties, and the kinds of the charges to be filed depend on factors including the prior convictions, if there are any, of the alleged DUI driver, the severity of the offense, the level of intoxication and the injuries caused to another individual.
The injured people not proven responsible for the crash will have then the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party, seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
