Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of accidents. The Krause Law Firm aggressively pursue claims against drivers responsible for operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. If you were injured or if a loved one died after being involved in a drunk driving accident, you are entitled to seek financial compensation. We employ numerous legal tactics to achieve beneficial case results for our clients. Our Atlanta auto accident lawyers care about our clients and do everything we can to ease the financial difficulties they will face after being harmed in a drunk driving accident.
Compensation for Injuries in Drunk Driving Accidents
The type and amount of compensation requested in a drunk driving accident depends on the circumstances of each case. If our client is injured, the stated damages will include:
- Medical expenses (i.e. surgery, medical devices, tests, etc.)
- Lost wages
- Medical-related out-of-pocket expenses
Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims
If we are working on behalf of a family filing a wrongful death claim for a deceased relative, the overall damages requested could be more substantial. In wrongful death cases, damages listed include:
- funeral and burial costs
- Loss of income
- Loss of affection
- Pain and suffering
The drunk driver’s insurance company will want to pay you and your family as little as possible. Without having a qualified attorney protecting your rights, it is possible that you will not receive all of the compensation for which you are entitled. You may not be able to accurately assess the long-term financial consequences of being injured or of losing a loved one in a drunk driving accident. We use our years of experience handling these types of claims to help our clients. We understand what issues will come up in the future if you don’t receive an adequate financial settlement from the insurance company. We are here to look out for your well-being and long-term welfare.
