I was injured by a drunk driver, do I have a case?
Q: What if the driver that caused the accident was drunk at the time of the accident?
A: In Virginia if you have been injured by a drunk driver, you can sue the driver and make an additional claim for punitive or punishment damages. In claims involving drunk drivers, it is important to hire a lawyer immediately to start the investigation and to find out where and when the alcohol was furnished to the drunk driver.
Despite being one of the toughest DUI states, drunk driving accidents still happen all too frequently on Virginia’s roads. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles more than 8,000 drunk driving accidents occurred on Virginia’s roads in 2013, causing more than 250 deaths and 5,200 injuries.
