Civil Liability In Drunk And Drugged Driving Accidents
Civil courts provide an outlet to hold drivers financially liable for injuries, meaning that the consequences for a DUI do not stop at an arrest. The result of civil litigation will depend on the evidence, including:
- The driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC): Breath and blood tests can establish that a DUI happened and the severity of the crime.
- Police reports: Reports include critical information like when and where the accident happened, both drivers’ conditions at the time of the accident and a narrative account.
- Witness testimony: Witness statements can corroborate your side of the story and can be especially valuable in settlement claims.
- Medical documents: A full diagnosis and the plan for your medical treatment is vital when determining a fair settlement.
At Fishwick & Associates PLC, we pursue justice. Many people think justice is done solely in criminal court, but we use civil court as a tool to hold drunk and drugged drivers responsible for the radical injuries their decisions cause.
