Chicago Drunk Driver Accident Attorney

Regarding Drunk Driver Accidents

Drunk driving accidents are regularly the subject of newscasts and newspaper articles.  These collisions involve cases of auto accidents, truck accidents as well as bus accidents, and those injured often include other drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists.  The horrendous or fatal injuries that the victims and their families are left to deal with are life changing.  In Illinois an individual who gets behind the wheel and drives after drinking or using drugs is guilty of DUI, a criminal offense.  Conviction of the guilty driver does not help the injured person.  If you or a loved one has been seriously or fatally injured by a drunk driver, you should consult a Chicago personal injury attorney who can file a civil suit to help you recover your damages.

Drunk Driver Accident Lawyer in Chicago

When a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs causes an accident and injury, it is understood this is because the driver's control, perception and reaction time were severely compromised.  Most personal injury claims are settled with the drunk driver's insurance company out of court.  Even though an insurance company generally understands that juries have little sympathy with the drunk driver, sometimes it is necessary to proceed to trial in order to gain fair compensation.  Under these circumstances a skilled drunk driver accident lawyer with our firm is fully prepared to take your case to the jury in order to obtain a positive result.
