Are you one of the many Oklahoma residents who has been injured or lost a loved one in an automobile accident? Was the wreck caused by a drunk driver? Did you know that compensation may be sought for losses suffered in car accidents caused by drunk drivers?
In order to seek compensation for damages sustained following a car accident, the law states that the driver believed responsible has to have been negligent in his or her actions leading to the wreck. Drunk driving is considered a negligent action. This means that, if you can establish that the driver responsible for your collision or the collision your loved one was involved in, you have a case for compensation.
Think you have a case but aren’t sure what to do about it? That is okay. Thankfully, this is not something you have to figure out alone. An experienced personal injury attorney can review the details of your case and help you decide if legal actions are truly appropriate. If they are, your attorney can then assist you in filing and litigating the appropriate claims in court.
The losses that often accompany drunk driving-related car accidents can be many. No one — victim or surviving family members of a victim — should have to shoulder the burden of dealing with those losses alone. With a little help from an Oklahoma-based attorney, you may be able to achieve relief for any economic and non-economic damages sustained, such as lost income, medical costs, funeral costs, pain, suffering and emotional distress — among others.
