While many people drive carefully, this isn’t the case for everyone.

Injury cases are complex, and when you’re reeling after an accident, your lawyer will get to work on your behalf, not letting a second go to waste.Your attorney can investigate your claim, collect valuable evidence, speak with witnesses, and determine the value of your injury claim. Understanding what your claim is worth helps you avoid settling for a low offer from the at-fault party’s insurer. While a quick offer may seem enticing, if it doesn’t account for what you’ve lost, you should keep fighting for a better outcome.Injury victims who have a lawyer managing their claim receive, on average, three times as much in compensation compared to injury victims who don’t have representation. When an impaired driver’s actions leave you with serious injuries, you deserve to focus on your recovery.

Types of Impaired Driving Cases We Handle
While drunk driving has been decreasing every year for the last three decades, there are still far too many deaths resulting from it. Marijuana use is also on the rise, so there could be a corresponding hike in the number of deaths we see from people who are impaired by means other than alcohol. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the highest percentage of drunk drivers in 2017 fell into the 21-24 age range (27%), followed by 25-34 (26%) and 35-44 (23%).
The decision to drink and drive seems to be an issue among younger people. However, age shouldn’t matter. When you have a driver’s license, you have a duty to drive responsibly — driving while impaired betrays that responsibility.
Some of the common injuries that can result from a drunk driving accident include:
If you or a loved one received one of these or any other injuries, start the process of finding an impaired driving attorney who can help you gather the necessary details and evidence for your case.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 29 people die every day in the United States due to alcohol-related car accidents. The annual cost of these crashes is over $44 billion. 10,497 people died in drunk driving accidents in the year 2016, which was 28% of the traffic fatalities for that year. 214 of these deaths were children aged 1 to 14. Additionally, we sometimes forget that impaired driving also includes driving under the influence of both legal and illegal drugs, not just alcohol.
Drugs lead to an additional 16% of annual motor vehicle crashes each year, and studies have shown marijuana users to be up to 25% more likely to be in an accident than non-users. These are all preventable deaths, and if you or a loved one were injured or killed by one of these people, you deserve to have the financial ability to recover more comfortably, confidently, and with the best possible medical care.

After learning the details of your car accident, your attorney will give you a stronger idea.
The value of your injury case varies depending on the severity of your injuries, your injury-related costs, lost wages, and other non-financial factors. The value of your settlement also depends on the percentage of blame that each person involved bears. Once your attorney knows the details of your case, they will be able to give you an idea of the value of your case.
