Drunk Driving

Unfortunately, drunk driving—or driving while intoxicated—is a serious problem in Virginia. The personal injury lawyers at Fishwick & Associates look to seek accountability for the harm caused to our clients by drunk drivers. Unlike in other car accident cases, punitive damages may be available in drunk driving cases.  Under Virginia law, if the drunk driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) above .15 percent, or was driving was especially reckless he/she can be punished for their bad behavior through additional compensation for the injured party. Therefore, if you or a loved one has been severely injured due to the negligence of a drunk driver, it is important to explore all your legal rights.
