If you are a passenger who has been injured in a drunk driving accident, we can explain your options for compensation beyond your no-fault insurance.

Punitive Damages

Liability in a drunk driving accident is usually easy to prove. Once blood alcohol content (BAC) has been determined following an accident, the driver may face criminal charges for DUI / DWI.

Individuals who have been injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver may be eligible to receive additional compensation beyond a personal injury settlement. Our firm can seek punitive damages, which are damages intended to punish the drunk driver for wrongdoing.
