Drunk driving accidents are some of the worst accidents that we see – because they’re both entirely preventable and they can have devastating consequences for everybody involved. So with that said, let’s take a look at some ways you can protect yourself, and your family from drunk driving accidents and the injuries they cause.
The law also allows you to recover non-economic damages for an accident. You likely suffered physical pain and mental anguish because of your injuries, and you are entitled to money to make up for that suffering. You can also get money for physical disfigurement you’ve suffered, like scars and burns, and for physical impairment, such as the loss of your ability to perform certain activities. Certain close family members like spouses can even recover money for their personal emotional suffering when a loved one is injured.
It is crucial to be aware of some of the most important things not to say to the insurance company right after an accident. Even minor comments can have a significant effect on both liability and damages.
