Are You a Victim of a Drunk Driving Accident? Can You Sue a Drunk Driver Who Hit You?
If you were injured in an accident with a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, expenses and losses. Accidents involving drivers under the influence (DUI) can cause especially severe injuries because collisions often occur at very high speeds. If you were injured by a drunk driver or lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to learn about your rights and options.

Common Behaviors Associated With Drunk Drivers
Driving while intoxicated is not only a criminal offense, it is also a form of negligence that can result in liability for drivers who cause accidents while under the influence. Drunk drivers often drive the wrong way on one-way streets, cross the median on divided highways and run stop signs and red lights. They make right turns without stopping, exceed the speed limit and weave in and out of their lanes. Both pedestrians and other drivers are at risk for accidents caused by drunk drivers.
