Seeking help after a drunk driving wreck in Virginia

Any car accident in Northern Virginia can lead to a host of medical and financial issues, but a drunk driving accident can prove particularly wrenching. The car accident victim must cope not only with their own medical trauma but also with the desire to see justice served. In drunk driving accidents, the criminal justice system will usually become involved and the drunk driver will receive criminal charges. In the criminal courts, victims and their families can help investigators and prosecutors see that justice is done.

The civil courts are another arena in which accountability can be sought. After being involved in an alcohol-related accident, the injured victim needs not only justice but to be made whole again. This is where a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can play a vital role. In a civil suit, the victim can be awarded monetary compensation for their loss. This can include money for medical expenses stemming from the crash. In cases of severe injury recovery can mean extended periods of physical therapy and possibly even long-term care.

There are other types of damages that can be awarded after a drunk driving accident. These include compensation for income lost due to missing work, as well as damages for pain and suffering. In a wrongful death case the victim’s family can recover for loss of support, loss of companionship and other damages.

We understand how juries operate in civil courts and we are familiar with the decision-making process used by judges. With over three decades of experience, our attorneys can help families and victims be made whole again after a drunk driving-related incident.
