How Our Experience Helps in Pursuing Full Compensation for Drunk Driving Victims
Legal intoxication begins at 0.08 BAC (blood-alcohol content). If the negligent driver was clearly over the limit, the insurance company will usually settle the claim. If the drunk driver’s policy does not cover your losses, we will (a) pursue additional coverage under your uninsured/underinsured motorist policy or (b) bring a claim against any personal assets of the offender. (In Virginia, you cannot sue the bar that served a drunk person.)
At an intoxication level of 0.15 BAC, victims of drunk drivers can seek punitive damages to punish the offender for the devastation. Even if the official BAC was less than 0.15, our law firm may hire experts to challenge the test results. For example, if the driver was 0.13 two hours after the crash, a toxicologist can determine if the person’s BAC was 0.15 or more at the time of the accident.
In negotiations or at trial, we push for total compensation. The common circumstances of drunk driving accidents — blown stoplights, head-on collisions, rear-end collisions at high speed — often result in catastrophic injury or wrongful death. Our attorneys prepare a comprehensive package detailing the losses: permanent disability, ongoing medical care, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life.
