Serious accidents caused by a drunk driver

drink driving

It’s the time of year when there are still some drivers who go out there and put others in danger by drink driving. If you have been seriously injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, we may be able to help you.

Simply put, there’s never an excuse for getting behind the wheel of a vehicle when you’re over the legal limit to drive. The same goes for motorbike riders as well, of course.

When accidents are caused by drink drivers, the injuries the victims can suffer from can be more severe for a number of reasons. As a law firm, we specialise and focus on serious injury compensation claims when it comes to personal injury. We can offer No Win, No Fee arrangements as well.

Serious injuries caused by a drunk driver

Victims of an accident that was caused by a drunk driver can suffer more serious injuries for a number of reasons.

One of the reasons for this is that the person operating a vehicle whilst under the influence may not have any chance to try and stop and swerve. This may stem from the fact that the alcohol in their system reduces reaction times as well as the inability to properly concentrate on potential hazards. Where there’s no chance to even reduce how hard the impact of a collision can be, injuries suffered can be worse.

There’s also the issue of drink drivers and their tendency to speed. Whether that stems from an unhealthy boost of confidence or people showing off, it can of course mean a greater chance of a high-speed collision. This in itself can mean harder collisions and therefore more serious and catastrophic injuries.

The chances of accidents with pedestrians and bikers may also be higher as well. Both of these type of cases typically leave victims suffering with more serious injuries.

Specialist serious injury lawyers

If you have been seriously injured in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver, we can help you.

As a firm, we have higher volumes than other firms when it comes to serious and complex compensation cases. In terms of personal injury claims, we specifically focus on the more serious injury cases.

With these types of claims, there’s a lot more to it than just processing a case. You can benefit from our extensive experience, as well as from our partnerships with some of the top barristers and medical experts in the county. Insurers are more likely to try and defend (even partially) a claim when the value is high, so having the best legal team alongside you can make a huge difference. It’s important for you to be able to secure the maximum compensation pay-out possible, and this can be achieved with the right lawyers instructed.
