Drunk Driving Accidents

In spite of strict laws penalizing driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI), drunk driving — and drunk driving accidents — continue to occur. According to the New Jersey State Police, there was a 14.7 percent increase in alcohol-related fatalities in 2011. “The number of fatal accident victims with blood alcohol readings above the legal limit increased from 133 in 2010 to 158 in 2011, an increase of 18.8 percent.” Drunk driving accidents regularly result in serious injuries as well as fatalities.

If you were injured or if your family member was killed or seriously injured in a drunk driving accident, your biggest concerns are not statistics or trends. Rather, you most likely need compensation for medical expenses and other losses. If the injury was catastrophic, you will have special needs for a lifetime. If your next of kin lost his or her life in a drunk driving accident, your entire family must live the rest of your lives without that person’s contributions to the family.

In addition to compensation for medical bills, funeral and burial costs, lost wage replacement and other purely financial losses, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering or loss of companionship.

To help you cope with the aftermath of a New Jersey drunk driving accident, the personal injury lawyers at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, are available to evaluate your case. If you choose to retain our legal services and we accept your case, we will keep a close watch on the outcome of any DUI charges against the other driver. Key pieces of evidence may come to light during a criminal trial. All relevant facts are important as your plaintiff’s attorneys prepare a strong case for full, fair compensation for you.

Knowing that a drunk driver caused the accident does not guarantee any level of compensation. However, the drunk driving element can make your injury claim or wrongful death claim more compelling.
