Drunk drivers pose a serious threat on the road. Each day in Washington State, many people are seriously injured as the result of drunk drivers. In the most tragic of cases, death occurs.
Holding Wrongdoers Accountable
Because of the serious damage they cause, drunk drivers need to be held accountable. They can face both criminal penalties, as well as civil responsibility for their actions. Unfortunately, many drunk drivers do not adhere to Washington State insurance laws and do not have auto liability insurance or do not have enough coverage for serious injury and damage cases.
Drunk driving accident victims may suffer expensive medical bills, lost wages, and have future medical needs. They may also have a claim for compensatory damages such as their pain and suffering resulting from the accident.
