Top-Rated DUI Attorneys in the Glendale Area
Drunk driving accidents are tragic, preventable accidents that often result in very serious injury or death. If you are a victim of an alcohol-related vehicular crash, you are not alone. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about three in every ten Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related accident at some point in their lifetime. More than a million drivers are arrested each year for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and around one in three traffic fatalities are alcohol-related.
It is well established that drunk drivers kill and injure thousands of innocent victims each and every year. Choosing to drive a car after consuming alcohol is a negligent decision that may have disastrous consequences. Arizona personal injury law permits the injured or the families of those killed by a drunk driver to file lawsuits to recover monetary compensation and damages.
Drunk Driving Accident Injuries
Skeens & Anderson helps victims obtain reimbursement for their injuries, medical expenses, and lost income after a drunk driver collision. Norman Skeens has been an attorney licensed in Arizona since 1961 & he has the experience to fight vigorously on behalf of clients. In Arizona, the legal blood alcohol count is .08% or lower. It takes very little alcohol to reach this legal level. The injuries caused by drunk drivers can be catastrophic or fatal. A drunk driver has little control of his vehicle, frequently driving too fast for conditions, or against oncoming traffic. In these circumstances, law-abiding drivers rarely stand a chance. By filing a claim for damages and compensation, the injured and their families put drunk drivers on notice of their rights.
Serious injuries due to drunk driving accidents can cause permanent injuries and tremendous suffering. If you’ve suffered serious, life-changing injuries or loss due to the reckless actions of a drunk driver, you are entitled to be compensated.
Compensation for a Drunk Driving Accident
A drunk driving accident lawyer can help you obtain justice for your injuries or the tragic loss of a loved one. An attorney can hold the driver and any other parties accountable for their actions and your loss. Compensation for a drunk driving accident can include monetary damages for medical bills, earnings lost as a result of not being able to work, pain and suffering and other expenses related to your accident. While you focus on getting better, we will do everything possible to help make you whole again. In drunk driving cases, punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the driver and deter them from repeating the behavior.
