Concord Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Injuries caused by drunk drivers can be life-changing, and even life-ending. Being injured by a driver who has been drinking gives you the legal leverage you do not get when injured by a sober driver.

This is because North Carolina law allows you to file compensation claims for more than medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Juries often award punitive damages in drunk driving cases to send the message to the community that this kind of carelessness cannot be tolerated.

This additional compensation is important as the drunk driver's car insurance is seldom able to pay for all the damage that is done.


Drunk Driver Injury Lawyers In Concordia, Gastonia And Salisbury

Another option available to victims of drunk driving accidents is the state's dram shop law. This law allows injured parties to file claims against parties in addition to the drunk driver. This may include the barkeeper who allowed the driver to get drunk, the host of the party the driver had come from, or the private club that sent the intoxicated driver on his way. These parties may be held accountable for their parts in the accident they helped cause.

Whichever of the three Patterson Adams offices you visit, you are assured of the same quality of representation, the same diligence in investigating and strategizing your case, and the same commitment to maximizing compensation for the injuries you have received.
