Drunk Driving Accidents
Unfortunately, drunk driving accidents occur much too often. Drinking and then getting behind the wheel is typically the cause of wrong-way accidents. People don’t understand that just one or two drinks can impair your ability to drive and can seriously impact your judgment. When someone drinks and drives, they are a danger to themselves and others. Drunk driving is not only negligent, but it is downright reckless. If you have lost a loved one due to a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss.
Wrongful death claims can be brought on behalf of a spouse, parent, or child. While no amount of money can ever replace your family member, it can help you pay for damages you may have acquired. Medical bills, lost wages, funeral costs, and loss of companionship are just a few of the common damages families seek. You don’t have to go through this alone. Attorney Todd Durham can assist you in your wrongful death claim.
