Drunk Driver Collision

Chicago Car Crash Attorneys

Holding the responsible parties accountable for an accident involving alcohol is an important step to take. Filing a lawsuit after a drunk driver collision should be done when:

  • Someone you love was killed during the accident
  • The accident caused you irreparable physical and/or mental harm
  • Your insurance company is not giving you the settlement that you deserve
  • Your insurance carrier is acting in bad faith
  • You want to legally fight back against the person(s) who caused you this pain

Taking legal action after your accident will never take the physical and emotional pain that you experienced away, but it can see justice served. When you have decided that you want to do all that is legally possible to seek restitution, contact the experienced injury attorneys at Kurasch & Klein today.

Drunk Driver Collisions in Illinois

In Illinois, the legal blood alcohol limit (BAC) is .08 for drivers 21 years of age or older. BAC limits are lower for minors and drivers of commercial vehicles. Despite laws against drunk driving, on average:

  • 10 people are pulled over every day in Chicago because of a suspected DUI
  • 3,795 people were arrested in Chicago for drunk driving in 2013

It is estimated that one third of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois involve alcohol. As a result, hundreds of people are injured or lose a loved one because of drunk driving. An experienced accident lawyer can help you recover damages so that you do not suffer financially for someone else’s reckless behavior.

Illinois personal injury laws entitle victims of drunk driving accidents to a number of types of compensation, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Personal property damage

Although compensation cannot undo the physical and emotional damage caused by your accident, it can prevent you from bearing an undue financial burden for someone else’s unlawful behavior.

However, insurance companies will often attempt to settle for compensation amounts far below what you deserve. In order to know the types and amount of financial compensation you may be eligible for and to effectively fight to get it, you need an experienced attorney.
