Injured by a Drunk Driver?
If you or a loved one have been injured by a drunk driver, get the compensation you deserve by calling Atty. Ray Ganim at Ganim Law at 203-377-7700 today.
Drunk driving is a negligent act. It is not just illegal, it is negligent…and it’s criminal. Anyone who decides to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is making a decision that affects the lives of others. Drunk drivers that cause injury or damage to property are charged criminally for driving while intoxicated. They may face jail time and fines. But if you are injured by a drunk driver, you must file a civil claim to recover any damages you may have suffered. Recoverable damages include:
- Bodily injury
- Damage to property (car, yard, building, etc.)
- Emergency room visits
- Hospital visits
- Medical bills
- CAT scans
- Rehabilitative instruments, such as crutches or a wheelchair
- Lost wages
- Funeral expenses
In some instances, the drunk driver may not be solely responsible for the accident. A dram shop claim can be made against the bar or restaurant that caused the customer to become intoxicated and allowed that person to get behind the wheel of a vehicle, knowing that he or she was not fit to drive. These lawsuits are extremely complex and require an attorney experienced in the nuances of dram shop claims. Atty. Raymond Ganim has the experience necessary to obtain the maximum compensation for your losses. Call Atty. Ganim today. 203-377-7700.
