Drinking and driving are two actions that should never go together. When you mix both, you have to be conscious of the dangerous consequences it could bring and that someone else’s life could be in danger. The severe and permanent injuries that may result from car and truck accidents caused by excessive consumption of alcohol or drugs result in tremendous loss to the individuals involved and their loved ones. However, the judicial system entitles an injured person to recuperate his or her damages from the negligent party. Also, punitive damages may be recovered from a DUI driver.

The process of determining the appropriate value of a personal injury resulting from a DUI driver in an auto accident is very complicated. Damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses and other economic losses. In addition, the injured party may be left with permanent disabilities and disfigurement, even after corrective surgery.
