Protecting Your Interests When You Have Been Injured By A Drunk Driver:
In 2016, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-related driving accidents according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That’s 51 people a minute. Thousands more are injured by drunk drivers every day. The knowledge that an accident could have been prevented if the person who had been drinking had decided not to get behind the wheel can make the pain of the accident more prevalent to the person injured or to the family who lost a loved one.
Even if the driver who hit you while drunk has the charges against him or her reduced or dropped by the state of Wisconsin, as the victim of the accident, you can still hold the other driver accountable for his or her actions in a civil lawsuit. Having an experienced Kenosha drunk driver car accident attorney on your side will make a successful resolution of your case more likely.
