The holidays always involve parties and drinking! Take special care driving during the holidays. Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of accidents across the nation.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is negligent behavior and can lead to devastating injuries. Often times along with injuries the victim will end up with tremendous pain and suffering.
Let us at The Horwitz Law Group help you or a loved one recover damages for injuries suffered at the hands of a drunk driver. If you have been the victim of a drunk driver you may be entitled to compensation in the form of punitive damages, medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of future earnings, and loss of past and future wages.
In the tragic case of the death of a loved one caused by drunk driving, you would need to call us immediately. There may be a way to recover compensation to provide financial support for the survivors. In most cases, you may even be entitled to non-economic damages such as loss of consortium or loss of love and affection of the deceased.
Even though it looks like the drunk driver is clearly responsible, there may also be liability on the part of others as well. An example of that would be if the driver was operating the vehicle while on company time. The employer may have some liability if there was certain knowledge the person had a known drinking problem.
A Chicago personal injury attorney may be able to help recover damages the average person would never know is owed to him without the aid of a professional.
