How To Get Compensation For Pain And Suffering Caused By A Drunk Driver
For many people injured in serious accidents, it is not enough to pursue compensation for medical bills and replacement of lost wages. When your life has been turned upside down through serious injuries, you naturally want justice . If the other driver had been drinking and driving, it is understandable for you to seek demonstration of responsibility by that drunk driver — and enhanced compensation.
The drunk driver may be cited for DUI and face criminal penalties and potentially lose driving privileges. But what about you? What kind of help will you get through the other driver’s punishment? A well-documented personal injury lawsuit may bring you monetary compensation above and beyond strict compensation for tangible losses.
Bolstering your personal injury claim or lawsuit after a drunk driving accident may require:
- Keeping track of the other driver’s DUI case outcome
- Verifying whether a bar or restaurant served that driver while he or she was obviously impaired
- Gathering eyewitness testimony and other evidence of drunk driving
Compensation for pain and suffering can give you flexibility and options to lighten your burdens and future challenges after a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury or a serious back or neck injury. Additional funds may allow you to hire household help, get your home modified for disabilities, pursue occupational rehabilitation or otherwise alleviate your suffering after a serious injury.
