Drunk Driving Accident

Kitsap County Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Seeking Justice for the Residents of Kitsap, Clallam & Jefferson Counties

Serious, debilitating, and permanent injuries can come from a drunk driving car accident. Anytime that alcohol is involved, an automobile can turn into a dangerous and harmful weapon to anyone it comes in contact with. Studies show that it is usually the sober passengers who sustain the most injuries in any alcohol-related accident, the drunk driver is relaxed due to the high alcohol content so they do not tense up in the moment of impact. In 2009, there were 492 reported fatal car accidents in the state of Washington and 232 of those were alcohol-related, that makes up 47%. From that amount, 206 of the drunk drivers were found with a blood alcohol content level of a .08 or higher. In the Washington code section 46.61, all DUI criminal offenses are considered to be gross misdemeanors.

The law provides a way for the injured person to collect monetary restitution from the responsible party for any losses they may have suffered and in some cases punitive damages may also be recovered. If you experienced any financial damages due to medical expenses, lost wages, loss in earning potential or funeral expenses, then you should be fully compensated. Loss of enjoyment of life or pain and suffering are also viable reason s to seek recompense. If your spouse is injured you may file as a third-party and pursue repayment on their behalf. Although monetary compensation can never fully repair the damages incurred upon you and your family, at the very least, it can lessen your financial burden.
